Donald Trump Responds To Huffington Post Not Covering His Presidential Campaign
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign will not be covered by the Huffington Post, according to an announcement made on the site on Friday, and not surprisingly the real estate mogul is firing back. In a brief statement, the Huffington Post said it won’t report on his candidacy as part of its political coverage, but instead will relegate Trump to its entertainment section.
The Huffington Post wrote, “After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section.” The site explained, “Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.”
Trump, who happens to be leading in a number of polls, including one by the Huffington Post, responded, “The only clown show in this scenario is the Huffington Post pretending to be a legitimate news source.”
But Gossip Cop thinks this may actually be the BEST thing for Trump. Media outlets often bend over backwards to provide equal coverage to all the candidates. Why would Trump want to be lumped in the same coverage as, say Republican candidates Jack Fellure and Mark Everson (yeah, we had to Google them, too)? By our reasoning, if he’s given equal coverage as the Kardashians or “The Bachelorette,” this could be huge for him. Gossip Cop posed the scenario to the Huffington Post, but has yet to hear back.
Tell Gossip Cop what you think about the Huffington Post only reporting on Trump’s campaign in its entertainment section.
