Teen Vogue's Trump 'Gaslighting' Piece Asserts That Teens Are Engaged In Politics, TooDecember 12, 2016
Teen Vogue's Lauren Duca recently published an opinion piece called "Donald Trump Is Gaslighting America," and it's got lots of people questioning why such a hard-hitting political topic is being discussed by a magazine for teenagers. Duca explains her view that Trump has manipulated American voters by lying and disregarding the truth.
Some people were pretty surprised that Teen Vogue took on such a serious political topic.
Did not expect this exegesis of gaslighting and its relationship to current day politics from Teen Vogue https://t.co/cwNhZ6wvJH— David Folkenflik (@davidfolkenflik) December 10, 2016
Others just want people to realize that Teen Vogue consistently does good work and that yeah, teenagers do care about politics. They just wanted everyone to give credit where credit's due.
You know you could spend less time telling people not to be shocked Teen Vogue has good political coverage and just share that coverage ☺️— Ira Madison III (@ira) December 12, 2016
Teen Vogue has politics a lot of people disagree with. But one part of those politics is thinking young people can be engaged with the world— Matt Pearce (@mattdpearce) December 11, 2016
