Donald Trump stans who turn to The Huffington Post for updates on his presidential campaign received a devastating blow today. The website moved the thrice-divorced, traditional marriage advocate’s political coverage to its entertainment section. (He did host The Apprentice, after all.) Talk about some low-key shade.
Here’s what HuffPost had to say about the move:
“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. 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.”
We hate to say it—actually, no we don’t—but the folks over at HuffPost have an excellent point. Donald’s presidential bid has been rampant with outlandish moments that mimic reality television in more ways than one. Let’s just break a few down:
Mr. Trump doesn’t realize it—or maybe he does, who the hell actually knows?—but these bananas soundbites serve undeniable Omarosa/Speidi/Kenya Moore realness. The man is acting like a total buffoon. Even worse, though, he sounds like a washed-up reality TV star. And if that’s the image Donald wants out there, then why shouldn’t media outlets put him on level with Kylie Jenner? It makes sense to us.
