New York Daily News: Only The “Brain Dead” Support Trump

trump-dawn-brain-dead  New York Daily News: Only The “Brain Dead” Support Trump trump dawn brain deadDemocrat billionaire Mortimer Zuckerman’s Daily News headlines today with “Dawn of the Brain Dead: Clown comes back to life with N.H. Win as mindless zombies turn out in droves.”  The “news” tabloid, replete with photos of scantily clad women, porn stars and celebrity gossip, features a number of past covers—self described as “hard-hitting, thought-provoking”— lambasting Trump as an insane clown.  [1] In other words, according to Zuckerman and crew, Americans fed up with an entrenched establishment that services multinational corporations and banking interests at their expense are akin to walking dead zombies enthralled by a clown.  The publisher is an ardent supporter of establishment insider and Goldman Sachs favorite Hillary Clinton. Zukerman has donated handsomely to the Clinton Foundation political machine along with fellow media magnates Bloomberg, James Murdoch, Carlos Slim, HBO, Time Warner, The Washington Post and others.  [1] The foundation established by Bill Clinton is scandal wracked. It takes millions from foreign governments, including Saudi Arabia, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates, countries not permitted to donate directly to presidential candidates. It is also lubricated by money from Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Bank of America, Exxon Mobil, General Electric, Monsanto, McDonald’s, Walmart and other corporate behemoths.  While Republican establishment insiders have yet to stoop to the level of Zuckerman and the Democrats—caricaturizing Trump as a buffoon leading a pack of brain dead zombies—they are also desperately working behind the scene to undermine Trump’s campaign and install an insider in the White House.  The neocons favored Marco Rubio, but due to his dismal showing on Tuesday they may need to look at the lackluster Ohio Governor John Kasich who placed second in New Hampshire.

However, Trump is not one to take a shot without firing back a counter-punch or two of his own. As such, the outspoken and blunt candidate took to Twitter to call out the struggling Daily News with a series of tweets, as he has a tendency to do.  Trump specifically targeted the owner of the newspaper, Mort Zuckerman, and intimated that his media venture was a failure that was doomed to close its doors in the near future.

Trump even took a shot a Politico, another largely liberal media outlet that has been exceptionally tough on the wealthy businessman.

Nor was he content to let the matter rest after those tweets Wednesday morning, as he took another shot at Zuckerman and the Daily News early Thursday, again insinuating that the newspaper was a failing venture that Zuckerman was incapable of unloading on an unsuspecting buyer.

One would expect a supposedly media-savvy individual like Zuckerman to know when he’s been beaten, but we expect he’ll just continue to do whatever sells papers. Or, in the Daily News’ case, whatever doesn’t sell papers. [18] Donald Trump pushed back on Wednesday telling Fox News the newspaper would be closing soon and that the publisher is “jealous as hell” of him.  Donald Trump pushed back on Wednesday at the New York Daily News’ latest attack, telling Fox News the newspaper would be closing soon and that the publisher is “jealous as hell” of him. The billionaire businessman believes the attacks were motivated out of jealousy. “The owner is a guy named Mort Zuckerman who’s got a total inferiority complex and he’s had [it] for years,” Trump said. “He’s jealous as hell because he would have loved to have done it himself.” Trump also took the publisher of the New Hampshire Union Leader to task for endorsing Republican rival New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for president. “He is a bad guy,” Trump told Fox News. “He asked me for advertising for his newspaper and he wanted me to make speeches and he wanted me to do his debate which was just before the Fox debate – the one where you drew 24 million people – and I said I could not do it.” Trump brushed off other reasons the New Hampshire paper endorsed Christie and continued to slam the paper and its management. “He’s a bad publisher and his paper is going down the tubes.” [19]
