NEW YORK, NY — Some are starting to get the idea that The New York Times has not been fair to Donald Trump after the newspaper accidentally forgot to fill in its front-page template. The few dozen of people who still subscribe to the Times received a headline reading: [think of the worst thing and type it here].
Thankfully for the publication, not a single reader noticed.
“Oh, for crying out loud. Did you see what Trump did this time?” a devoted liberal yelled from her porch, not noticing the missing content. “I’ve read it. Twice! And it’s the worst thing ever, you guys!”
The body of the article was also left with many template holders, which looked like this:
“Then Trump [verb] [minority members] while he [illegal thing] all over the place.”
“Member of [list clan chapter] defended Trump, despite the former president looking like a [color—probably orange] [swear word] [insulting noun].
The paper defended its blunder by saying Trump did actually do ‘the worst possible thing’ the previous day, so this was a very accurate headline.
