NY Times Editorial Board Member Thinks Trump Returning To Facebook Would ‘Take Down The Country’ (VIDEO)
Trump Derangement Syndrome is still a major problem for some people in media.
Mara Gay, a member of the editorial board of the New York Times, appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Thursday and said that it could ‘take down the country’ and destroy democracy if Trump is allowed back on social media sites like Facebook.

MSNBC panel melts down over Facebook ‘devil’s bargain’ with Trump, warns it will end democracy
An MSNBC panel sounded the alarm after Meta reinstated former President Trump on Facebook and Instagram, claiming that the decision could cripple American democracy.
During Thursday’s “Morning Joe,” Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway, historian Jon Meacham, and left-wing New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay collectively panned Meta for the move.
Conway said the decision was both “mystifying” and “ridiculous,” adding he was “very worried” about the potential impact on U.S. democracy.
“They think, ‘Well oh, the fire’s out, so even though this guy has a cache of matches and gasoline that he carries around with him, let’s let him just play with matches again,” Conway said…
Gay, who has previously voiced concern about Trump’s place in American politics, as well as his supporters, compared Meta’s decision to past instances of chemical companies supporting the infrastructure that creates weapons of war.
“As a country or as a company, you don’t want to hand over the keys to democracy to have someone destroy that democracy. Do you want to be that institution that really helps take down the country?” she asked.

This is the same Mara Gay who thought that the $500 million Michael Bloomberg spent on his failed presidential campaign could be divided up into a million for each person in the United States.
NYT editorial board member Mara Gay agrees with MSNBC’s Brian Williams that Bloomberg could have given every American $1 million instead of spending $500 million on ads.
But the math doesn’t add up.
