Military Media Outlet Puts Trump-Hating Millennial in Charge
Polls consistently show that members of our all-volunteer Armed Forces skew conservative.

However, the Army Times, one of the leading newspapers that cater to our service members, has hired a 28-year-old Trump critic as its editor-in-chief. 

Sarah Sicard's biases are clear to anyone who's had even a cursory glance at her social media or resume, which includes rants about hating Donald Trump and stints as a spokesperson for a Democratic Party official in New York and a press intern for Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The Daily Caller's Luke Rosiak has more:
 

After interning for several Democrats, graduating Hofstra University in 2014, and contemplating art school, Sarah Sicard wrote for a marijuana publication called the “Bluntness,” served as communications director for a New York city council member, and worked in corporate PR, according to her resume and online bios.

As of Jan. 10, she occupies the top editorial position of the Army Times, which has been published since 1940 and is one of the preeminent publications for military men and veterans.

That’s a jarring contrast with the audience that pays for subscriptions.

“Exit polling in the 2016 presidential election saw military members and veterans vote nearly two-to-one in favor of Republican candidates,” according to the Military Times, the Army Times’ parent publication.


"Does anyone else feel like Donald Trump’s endorsement of anything makes the rest of us immediately hate that thing?" Sicrad tweeted less than six months after Trump's inauguration.
