It didn’t take long for liberal publications to attack Donald Trump for his NH victory. Joe Klein from Time Magazine had issues with Trump supporters.
JOE KLEIN: It’s a real victory for him but I think that we in our business have to be completely honest about this. If you vote for Trump, it means you’re not paying attention. These are low-information voters. They are a real threat to this country, they’re a real threat to our standing in the world…
Charlie Rose tried to argue that Klein shouldn’t criticize voters just because he doesn’t like who they vote for, but was cut off.
KLEIN: I’m sorry, I just – I think their anger is self-indulgent and I think this really – it’s a disaster for the Republican Party. It’s a disaster for the country. Things aren’t so bad here. You know, it’s time that we put this thing into a little bit of perspective. This is a guy who doesn’t know anything except to say evil things about other people.
Two liberal papers also taunted Trump and his supporters.
ANNA KOOIMAN: Some other liberal outlets attacking you this morning. The Huffington Post has a headline out. Also the New York Daily News: “Dawn Of The Brain Dead.” They have you pictured as an evil clown like the Joker and it says, “Clown comes back to life with N.H. win as mindless zombies turn out in droves.” Are headlines like this direct insults to your supporters too?
DONALD TRUMP: Well the owner of the New York Daily News – which is a totally failing paper, in fact I think it’s out of business. It’s going to be closing soon, I’m pretty sure. The owner is a guy named Mort Zuckerman who’s got a total inferiority complex and he has for years. And he’s just one of these guys, I mean, you know, they do that. He’s jealous as hell because he would’ve loved to have done it himself and just one of those things. Look, it’s another paper that’s going down the tubes. They used my name, they put – they do the clown thing, every week I’m on with a clown picture. Maybe it sells, maybe it doesn’t sell but the paper is going bad so what can I tell you.
