Eh, What’s a Word Between Friends

From a NYT article about Mike Pence attending a production of “Hamilton”:

The show’s politics — particularly its celebration of diversity and of the critical role immigrants played in the American Revolution and the early republic — stand in sharp contrast to some of the harsh language about immigrants that Mr. Trump used during the campaign and his focus on appealing to white men with statements about returning America to “the good old days.”

It seems the NYT made a typo. It left out the word “illegal”.

Obviously it must be a typo, since anybody who is not a fool or liar would have noticed how heavily and often Trump praised legal immigrants, including legal Mexican immigrants. So it must be a typo.

Come to think of it, there’s another typo in that very paragraph, since anybody who paid even the slightest attention to the election would have noticed very quickly that Trump made repeated and specific appeals to minorities, and in fact got a far higher percentage of the minority vote than even Mitt Romney. If anything, he targeted “White men” the least. I literally can’t remember him directing any comments towards white men as a collective group, or even whites in general as a collective group.

So obviously that’s a typo too.

Just doing my duty as a semi-professional editor. A professional publication should never contain typos like this; hopefully the typos will be fixed in the future.

    A guy who is basically a Bill Clinton clone is now Literally Hitler, and if you had a
    chance to strangle Literally Hitler in his crib by making typos wouldn’t you do it?
