The Hill reports:
The New York Daily News’ months long attacks on Donald Trump as a clown intensified Tuesday night when the Republican presidential candidate won his party’s New Hampshire primary.
The tabloid’s Wednesday cover features an image of Trump as a clown with text declaring his win as representing the “dawn of the brain dead.”
“Clown comes back to life with N.H. win as mindless zombies turn out in droves,” the Daily News says in its subtitle, referring to voters in the Granite State.
The tabloid mocked Trump’s loss in the Iowa caucuses last week with another rendition of the real estate tycoon as a clown, declaring, “dead clown walking.”
The Huffington Post also escalated its feud with the outspoken billionaire following his New Hamphire victory, ripping the Granite State for going “racist,” “sexist” and “xenophobic.”
Trump’s showing on Tuesday represents his first win of the Republican presidential race. The next votes will be cast in South Carolina and Nevada.
