It’s pretty clear: the media is rallying against Trump. Honestly, though, he deserves every minute of it.
The NY Daily News sported a hilarious cover featuring Donald Trump in clown face with the title “Dead Clown Walking” the day after the Iowa caucuses.
Despite all of Trump’s promises that he would win so much that his supporters would “get tired of winning,” he was bested in the first state to cast primary votes by Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz won 8 delegates to Trump’s 7, beating the business mogul 27.6% to 24.3%. So much for no one liking Ted Cruz, huh, Trump?
After the Huffington Post announced last week that it will print the following disclaimer at the bottom of each article it posts about Donald Trump, it’s pretty clear that it is his hateful rhetoric that will bring about the death of his presidential campaign run.
“Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.”
This is not, as Trump is sure to claim, a result of the liberal media’s attacks against him, either. Even Fox News has made statements trashing the candidate, which culminated in Trump’s refusal to attend the final debate before the Iowa caucus as a protest. Perhaps that tantrum cost him votes in Iowa, but we’ll just hope that people are finally beginning to see through his unending hate speech.
Perhaps Jeb was right when he told Donald:
“You’re not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency.”
