Naperville Congressional candidate Lauren Underwood to get ice cream made in her honor by Ben and Jerry

Naperville Democrat Lauren Underwood is one of seven Congressional candidates being backed by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield — co-founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream — and for whom they will be naming an ice cream flavor for this fall.

“We wanted to do our part to check President Trump’s unrestrained power and send progressive champions to Congress who will really fight for working people and not just blow smoke,” Cohen said in a news release. “To guys like us, that means cranking up the old ice cream freezer.”

Editorial: Mr. President: We aren’t enemies of the people. We’re a check on government.

As this became a national news story, we at the Tribune Editorial Board had two choices: We could stay silent and leave you wondering what message to read into that, or we could explain in our own words the dangers the president’s incitement has created. We chose Option 2 even though we generally avoid group editorial efforts.

We haven’t written at length about Trump’s vilification of journalists. Journalism isn’t supposed to be about journalists. But Trump has made us part of news stories so often that we’ll take time to talk with you about that.
