New York Daily News Insults Sarah Palin And Donald Trump On Front Page

The New York Daily News took a scathing swipe at Republican Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump and former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin on their front page cover today.

In large capital letters, the New York Daily News used the headline, “I’M WITH STUPID!”, as their main caption for the edition, accompanied by a picture of Donald Trump pointing at Sarah Palin.

The Daily News headline read right into the current circus of politics coming out the Republican Presidential primaries, which has featured several controversial antics within the party and stirred up more controversy than any other primary season of recent history.

Trump has been highly cited in various news media outlets for taking misogynistic and racists swipes at various groups of people since last summer when he announced his candidacy. Those events included classifying Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and “murderers,” both comments that he has yet to apologize for. He has also taken highly personal swipes against Fox News host Megyn Kelly in regards to their exchanges in the first Republican debate. This would later lead to an on-again, off-again daily feud between Trump and Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch.

But the New York Daily News was quick to point out that not only has his campaign been marred by overhyped controversy, but news of him being endorsed by Sarah Palin puts a new scope of controversy on his potential candidacy.

The New York business and real estate mogul was officially endorsed by Palin at a campaign event in Ames, Iowa.

Palin broke the news to the Iowa crowd by inciting rhetoric that is inherent to the current field of Republican candidates.

“I am here because, like you, I know it is now or never,” Palin said as the crowd roared cheers and whistles. “I’m in it to win it because I believe in America and I believe in our freedom.”

In the article, Daily News informed readers that the crowd took the news of Trump’s Palin endorsement with vigorous excitement. She spoke to them about things that make Trump the most qualified to do the job, citing his record as being from the “business sector” and not being a career politician.

She hyped those words by portraying his resume of never having held office and being a private sector billionaire to the crowd, seeming to make it look like that is what makes him the most qualified to hold the highest office in the land.

Palin also said that news of his private sector experience and his book, The Art of the Deal, is what makes him qualified to deal with certain international policies, which would include the current crisis with ISIS in Syria.

After characterizing him as a thriving private sector business mogul from New York, Palin also went as far as to say that he is not an elitist at all. But she did call the current administration elitist and she also mocked President Obama’s original campaign slogan by uttering the words “all this hope-y, change-y stuff.”

The New York Daily News cited her endorsement and her speech at the Iowa campaign event as their reason to believe that it was a “Saturday Night Live skit waiting to happen.”

Trump was also all smiles when he got her support. News of her endorsement came as a welcome to the New York business mogul.

“From day one, I said if I ever do this, I have to get her support,” Trump told the Iowa crowd with high energy. “She feels it.”

News of Palin’s endorsement for Trump also came amid daily rising poll numbers in Iowa for Senator Ted Cruz. Palin had originally endorsed Cruz during his run for the Senate, and he even said that it was her who put him in his current Senate seat.

The New York Daily News was quick to point out that the timing of Palin’s support for Trump is quite coincidental, to say the least.
