The Huffington Post Says Donald Trump’s Presidential Campaign Is a Kardashian-esque Sideshow

LOL, this is perfect.

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:

  • The time he said this about Mexican immigrants: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
  • The time he channeled Kanye West: “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
  • The time he pushed his swag like a Real Housewife: “We need a leader that wrote The Art of the Deal.”
  • The time he sounded like Spencer Pratt on a crystals rant: “I watch the speeches of these people, and they say the sun will rise, the moon will set, all sorts of wonderful things will happen, and people are saying, ‘What is going on? I just want a job.’”
  • The time he was an architect: “I will build a great wall—and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me—and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
  • 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.
