The Sun isn't being objective when it comes to Trump

President Trump moved Thursday to scale back rules on health insurance across the country in the administration’s most ambitious effort to date to use its regulatory powers to undermine the Affordable Care Act.

I am disgusted with The Sun's editorial staff owing to its almost daily Trump bashing. Why do you find it necessary to lambaste Mr. Trump for faithfully executing Obamacare as it was drafted and passed exclusively by Democrats? The president's job is to execute and enforce laws as written on the books, not to circumvent the law as was done with the so-called bailouts to the insurance companies. Those bailouts were never appropriated by Congress as required by the Constitution, thus the payouts were unlawfully paid out.

If you need to place blame, it should be the Democrat-controlled congress and Obama executive branch that lacked foresight about the economic realities of a hastily passed and woefully mislabeled law. Where was the editorial criticism of former President Barack Obama not fully executing immigration law enacted by the Clinton administration, and illegally providing work permits to unlawfully present persons under the DACA executive order? Where was criticism of the Obama administration for not executing the Secure Fence Act enacted during the George Bush administration. Selective criticism is a hallmark of The Sun's editorial staff. Furthermore, selective massaging of factual information is not exactly objective journalism, but objectivity is not something found very often on The Sun's editorial page.
