Remember those full-page ads in the Post: “VOTE TRUMP!”?

One of those ads published by The Palm Beach Post is below, “DRAIN THE WASHINGTON SWAMP!”

Don’t Hillary Clinton supporters deserve an explanation? Following the election results last November the editor(s) at the Post hosted a Facebook forum to appease Trump supporters who felt they were disparaged and maligned in some way by the newspaper.

However, the big unanswered question is why didn’t The Palm Beach Post editorial board endorse Hillary Clinton in heavily Democrat-leaning Palm Beach County? They didn’t endorse then-citizen Mr. Trump either. Why didn’t they make any endorsement for President of the United States?

The last one of those ads (see below) greeted readers on a Sunday morning, November 6th, 2 days prior to the elections. How many people were caught off guard that day and spilled coffee all over the place? Choked on a muffin when they saw “DRAIN THE WASHINGTON SWAMP!”.

Did the decision of no endorsement for Hillary Clinton simply come down to appeasing the Bernie Sanders supporters? If that’s the case maybe they forget this election result:

The primary results from 2016.

Didn’t Clinton supporters in Palm Beach County deserve an explanation or even a Facebook “Live Chat” like the supporters of once-citizen and now President Donald Trump got?

Hard to believe, this ad in the Post was published just 119 days ago (as of March 5th): 

A full page ad in the Post on Sunday, November 6th, 2016, page A5. How many more Republicans got motivated to turn out on Election Day?
