picmonkey-collage-piers-650x488Following President-elect Donald Trump‘s visit to The New York Times offices on Tuesday, op-ed columnist Charles Blow penned a scathing editorial in which he declared that he was glad not to have been forced to exchange pleasantries with the soon-to-be President.

“I will say proudly and happily that I was not present at this meeting,” Blow wrote. “The very idea of sitting across the table from a demagogue who preyed on racial, ethnic and religious hostilities and treating him with decorum and social grace fills me with disgust, to the point of overflowing.

Morgan tweeted back:
