Legitimate news is already looking beyond the Donald Trump "bump" ......

Interesting to read how The Huffington Post has already declared the Donald Trump (the "chump") billionaire's presidential campaign to be not news worthy.  In other words, Huffington Post, the popular on line news source, just won't acknowledge the "Trumpism" campaign, based on ostentatious showmanship. 


Donald Trump is being boycotted again, but this one's bizarre ... Huffington Post is refusing to treat him as a serious Presidential candidate.

"After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we (Huffington) 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."

Weird stance for a media outlet to take, considering recent polls show Trump leading ALL Republican candidates ... winning 18% of GOP voters. (What really gets to  Maine Writer is how Trump the Chump, with 18 percent, is somehow a leading candidate.  If Mrs. Hillary Clinton were in this kind of situation, with all of her star power, we'd be calling on her to reconsider her aspirations to become our nation's first female president.  Trump's campaign is showing the media to be - who knew? - duplicitous.)

Huffington calls Trump's campaign a "sideshow," adding, "We won't take the bait." The website will cover Trump in its entertainment section, saying, "you'll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette."

Trump just responded, noting he's been the leading candidate in numerous polls and adding, "The only clown show in this scenario is the Huffington Post,  pretending to be a legitimate news source."

It will be interesting if Trump wins a primary ... will HuffPo lead with Kim K or New Hampshire?

Good point! ( says Maine Writer). See Who's on second? my blog of July 16th, i.e, the candidate in the New Hampshire primary who comes in second will be the real winner.

Yet, somehow, Huffington will have to report on Trump the Chump, if he, in fact, wins the popular vote.  

Of course, it's entirely possible "Trumpisms" (as Governor Rick Perry has called him) will peak by the time the voters go to the primary polls.....and if that happens, and Trump the Chump doesn't win the primary, then Huffington Post will likely win a Pulitzer Prize for journalism bravery.
