Trump Campaign Manager Thinks The Huffington Post Is A Print Newspaper With Subscriptions

"That's okay but it is also a clear indication why nobody pays for a subscription to that paper anymore because no one can take it seriously. It's a glorified blog is all it is."

Donald Trump's campaign manager is under the impression that The Huffington Post is a print newspaper with subscriptions.

"Well, look, you know this, you've got a tabloid publication called The Huffington Post," Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said on the John Frederick's Show last week. Lewandowski was responding to the Huffington Post's politics team saying they would cover Trump's campaign as entertainment not politics.

"It doesn't carry much real news anyway. It continues to lose money and doesn't want to report on the frontrunner of the GOP race for president. That's okay but it is also a clear indication why nobody pays for a subscription to that paper anymore because no one can take it seriously. It's a glorified blog is all it is."

The Huffington Post said Trump's campaign "is a sideshow" last week worthy of coverage next to the Kardashians as part of the explanation for their thinking.

"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," they said. "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."
