Sounds like she could use a therapy dog.

Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson revealed in a column last week that she carries a plastic Barack Obama doll in her purse as a way to comfort herself in the Donald Trump era.

    Per wikip., she has 4 tatoos. A NYC subway token, Henry (her husband), H (for Alma Mater Harvard), and T in NYT font. She worked for WSJ for 10 years, but she has no tatoo for it, because that paper is not in her family’s blood.

    I hope she rubs those ginormous Obama doll ears for stress relief or luck. Like some sort of rabbit’s foot.

    What a moron.
