‘Pay-Per-View’: Internet Slams Boston Globe for Saying Americans Don’t Want to See Trump Dragged Out of the White House



“This is a deep, almost surreal misunderstanding of our nation”

The Boston Globe is probably surprised after publishing a piece asking, “What if Trump won’t leave the White House?

On social media the paywalled newspaper tweeted, “Even a nation hooked on drama does not want to see a US president dragged out the front door of the White House on Jan. 20, so we asked experts in the art of persuasion how they go about dislodging the reluctant.”
