Is there any wonder this tool flushed his Twitter history down the drain last night? Well, it could be his years of embarrassing ObamaCare tweets he vomited up or any other gem. Perhaps he knew what was coming today.

A top Democratic operative advised Hillary Clinton’s campaign to use minority and women journalists to “shame” The New York Times and other media outlets into giving the Democratic presidential nominee more favorable coverage, according to a hacked email released Wednesday.

Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress and a staunch Clinton backer, wrote to campaign manager John Podesta sharing “Howard’s advice,” a reference to Howard Wolfson, communications director for Clinton’s 2008 presidential bid and a former top aide to Mayor Bloomberg.

Wolfson, according to Tanden, “thinks the brown and women pundits can shame the times and others on social media. So cultivating [them] to defend her is helpful. They can be emboldened.”

Tanden named The Nation’s Joan Walsh, Vox’s Matt Yglesias, The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent and NBC’s Perry Bacon as among those who could be “helpful.”

Oh, they’re helpful, alright. Yet we’re confused: Is Yglesias either brown or a woman? And what about this twerp?

Tanden also called Times publisher Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger “a pretty big wuss” in the July 2015 email.

Needless to say, the Times endorsed this criminal outfit because Trump.
