New Hampshire Republican primary voters on Tuesday made official their choice for president of the United States: real estate mogul and reality television star Donald J. Trump.Last night, Politico wrote that the HuffPost had gone "nuclear" at news Trump declared victory, and reminded us that the publication had refused for months to cover anything Trump-related on the politics section.
The businessman's resounding victory amid a crowded field of more experienced and accomplished candidates is a stunning turn of events for a party that vowed just four years ago to be more inclusive to minorities after failing to unseat President Barack Obama in the bitter 2012 election. What the GOP got instead is a xenophobic demagogue who's insulted pretty much everyone and even earned the endorsement of white supremacists. Trump's victory in New Hampshire likely points to a drawn-out slog between Trump and at least one of his rivals as they battle to secure enough delegates in hopes of winning their party's nomination this summer.
Recently, the site started appending an editor’s note to the bottom of posts about the Republican presidential contender, calling him a "racist," a "liar" and a "xenophobe" and reminding readers of his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States.HuffPost, you have balls.
