Oof:

But with Trump still up big in New Hampshire, we do wonder what their cover will look like after the NH primary on February 9:

Also, why couldn’t the NY Daily News come up with something better than this?

Here’s the New York Post this morning:

Who did it better?

***

  • John Howard

    Still, better to be a clown than a traitor guilty of treason,

    • Perso Nasplit

      Not to the left. Being seen as “not cool” vs destroying something they dont believe should exist isnt much of a competition.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lS8RjCRolSM Sanchez Crazy as a Loon

    Trump’s twit should be active today after he sobers up to the fact he is not the best candidate.

  • kennyraisin

    Their graphics department needs some work. I would have put more of Tim Curry’s clown face from IT on the cover. Would have been a bit more interesting. This one looks more like Emmett Kelly. Maybe they’re saving the scarier face for the Hildabeest’s indictment cover.

    • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      Why didn’t they just use the clown from those Scream movies? The melty-face ghost clown…

      • kennyraisin

        With Donald’s orange hair.

        • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

          Oooh, yeah, that would have been COOL!

  • Peggy Bundy

    Wonder what the front pages were after Santorum & Huckabee’s Iowan victories? lol

    • http://www.unpczone.com Chris Carter

      Probably “Who the hell is Rick Santorsmith or whatever is name is?”

  • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    NYDN doesn’t let the grass grow under its desperation, that’s for damn sure…

  • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

    A little bet-hedging might be in order at this point. There are still 49 other states to go.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “56!”
      –Obama

  • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    Just a quick note, folks. Trump lost a caucus. Not the general election. Somebody pass that along to NYDN, though. I think they don’t understand how this all works…

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Or much of anything else.

      • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        They do all seem to be circling the “Vox” drain these days, don’t they?

    • Shoeless Joe

      Trump has sizable leads in New Hampshire, and South Carolina
      Nothing was decided last night, but Cruz does deserve to be congratulated.

      • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        Absolutely. Unlike many others, I’m pro Cruz, pro Trump, pro Fiorina (yeah, I know, but I do like her business acumen), pro Rubio a bit, etc. There is a LOT of quality talent on the GOP side of things, and I’m not too fussy or absolutist at this point…

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

        “Trump has sizable leads in New Hampshire, and South Carolina”

        He had sizable leads in Iowa, too. Didn’t work out for him.

    • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

      Actually Trump should buy the damn paper and then take great pleasure in firing these psychos.

      • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        That would be sort of fun…

        • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

          And put it on TV. It would be too much lulz.

          These imbeciles really do deserve it too. Gone way too far this time especially when you consider that they wouldn’t dare do this to Hellary.

    • http://www.almarquardt.com/ almarquardt

      Plus how many Iowa caucus winners went on to win the GOP nomination?

      • bxarmybrat

        George W. Bush did.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      An additional note: Trump had double-digit leads in multiple polls for said caucus and repeatedly insisted he would bring in thousands of new voters (again, for said caucus).

      This race isn’t over by a long shot, but Cruz popping the inevitability bubble is a devastating setback for a guy whose claim on the nomination was the same as Hillary’s eight years ago: “But I’m leading the polls.”

  • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    So, the NYDN put Trump in “whiteface”…

    RACISTS!!!

  • Giuseppe Franco

    NYDN doesn’t exactly have a good track record with their front page headlines of late, but here’s hoping for once they are right.

    • http://www.unpczone.com Chris Carter

      I’d have preferred “Send Out The Clown.”

      • Giuseppe Franco

        If you want to see a truly deranged woman, check out Ann Coulter’s Twitter page from last night.

        What really eats her though is not only did Trump lose, but the anti-Christ RINO Rubio damn near took down Trumpmania as well. That was like rubbing salt in their wounds.

        She is such a tool.

        • HiltonHead_Dude

          When Ann Coulter said she didn’t care if Trump did abortions in the White House because his immigration policy was so great she lost me.

          • Maxx

            A thousand times yes.

        • Paul V

          I used to love to read Coulter, but in the last six to eight years she has become a complete idiot. I would say a joke, but it’s not funny how she has deteriorated into a shrieking harridan. She was voluble before, but now she’s just a gibbering loon.

        • http://www.unpczone.com Chris Carter

          I saw it last night. And I laughed. Then saw Trumpbots blaming Microsoft like Patriots fans and laughed some more. A great night.

        • Maxx

          With her track record of failure in picking winners, I’m glad she’s not a supporter of Marco.

  • CrushAllDems

    In the case of the NYDN (Hell, and the NYT for that matter), I hope President Trump honors Bernie Sander’s wishes and has their asses taxed at a federal rate of 90%…

    • http://www.unpczone.com Chris Carter

      DeBlassio isn’t doing that yet?

    • Giuseppe Franco

      I hate to tell you, but there won’t be a President Trump and the country will be far better off for it.

      • CrushAllDems

        Well, Cruz will do…

    • Perry

      Trump is way out in front in NH and SC. The big date is March 1st

    • theAcefromSpace

      Screw Google and their app. Progressives would like nothing better than web-based elections. Would checking their “election predictions” online influence voters?

  • D.Beck

    Wonderful unbiased media, great to be an American.

  • Shoeless Joe

    And the NYDaily News circulation is?

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Probably better than the vote count for Trump last night.

      What’s the matter, Joe? I don’t recall you Trump supporters being too upset with NYDN when they depicted the Statue of Liberty flipping Cruz off and the cover telling him to drop dead. Still feeling butt-hurt about last night? ‘Cause there’s a cream for that.

      299,538 for the Mon-Fri edition. 422,906 for the Sunday edition. Those are 2015 preliminary audit figures. The website looks a little different than it used to, and the measurement periods for newspapers used to me March and October, I think, back when the Audit Bureau of Circulations published the Fas-Fax reports, which were preliminary audits; final audits came out months later. Now, it’s reported by the Alliance for Audited Media. Anyway, top line data is available for free to anyone who registers at the website.

  • Maxgoof

    The Daily News jumped the shark and nuked the fridge some time ago. I really don’t expect them to last that much longer as a newspaper. Expect it to go on sale soon.

    • Fingolfin

      But did they fry the coke?

  • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

    These people have gone around the bend.

  • Eva_Galley

    “Cruz-ified”. I like that.

  • algonquinmatt

    NYT just gave Daily News props for their increase in relevance. They didn’t mention that they are just the leftwing version of the NY Post.. a paper that they consider a tabloid. go figure.

  • Rogue Cheddar

    It’s wonderful watching the MSM flailing about hither and thither trying to regain control of the narrative over us proles.

  • fools2234

    Love it. Trump the clown is an unelectable moron and I hope Trumptards across the country are cutting themselves after his embarrassing loss.

    Rubio/Cruz 2016

    And Trumptards, go to he$$.

    • Rogue Cheddar

      Rubio? Really?

      • R_Stephan

        Why not? He’s a good candidate.

        • globalcrap

          Except he voted for the dream act with Christie and those other clown

          • texastommy

            Christie was not in the Senate. So, how did he vote for it?

          • globalcrap

            Look up Christie in New Jersey and see what he did .Christie triumphs in New Jersey singing in the dream act.

          • R_Stephan

            And? One thing makes him not a conservative? He’s the only one who’s done anything about obamacare and won. Don’t be dense.

          • globalcrap

            Christie flip flops Cruising with Cruz..

  • R_Stephan

    I fail to see the issue here. He got stomped. His movement is dead in the waters. Denial only gets you so far, try getting to the acceptance stage of grieving, it’ll be better for everyone in the end.

    “Make second place great again”
    – Donald Trump

  • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

    Donald Trump didn’t pay 25,000 for every caucus vote and come in 6th. There are 3 tickets out of Iowa and Trump got one.On the other hand the democrat candidate is tied with an old socialist and is still waiting on her ticket.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “Donald Trump didn’t pay 25,000 for every caucus vote and come in 6th.”

      So? I mean, I enjoy rubbing it in Jeb’s face, too, but last night was a much more devastating loss for Trump than him. Everyone knew Jeb was flat-lining, but Trump and his supporters had repeatedly insisted that the polls were accurate and that he would bring in new voters. Didn’t happen, which pops the inevitability bubble.

      • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

        Donald Trump didn’t come in sixth he didn’t finish at the bottom the standard doesn’t change there are 3 tickets out of Iowa just because he didn’t come in first it’s still a good showing. And pissing off any of his voters is a mistake they are going to be needed in the general that’s the lesson of Romney’s failed campaign don’t alienate voters many stayed home and didn’t turn out to vote for Romney in the general.

      • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

        I didn’t want Trump to sweep I am happy he has drag. I didn’t want him sweeping Iowa and New Hampshire and snowballing the rest of the primaries. Now we have a real race it’s going to get earned. At the end of races they still have to face the democrats nominee it’s not smart to turn off anyone’s primary voters including Donald Trumps.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Well, it’s about time. I’ve been calling Trump a make-up-less clown for months.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    Was it really necessary to humiliate the guy just to sell a few papers? I’m thrilled Cruz beat Trump, the Post front page was fine (“Cruz-ified”), but that clown face was way over the top.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      If it were anyone but Trump, I’d agree, but that guy has been a raging asshole for months. He had it coming.

  • R.C.

    New York Values?

  • globalcrap

    New York O Bogus liberal newspapers do what they do best humiliate people, they’re news is always anti America

  • notenoughtime

    Why all the hatorade. Love him or hate him, Trump has definitely shaken up the process this election cycle and topics are being discussed that would have never been brought up for fear of political suicide. Seems to me the clown show is not happening in the GOP but on the democratic side – coin toss to pick a winner!

    • Fingolfin

      Well I speak only for myself when I say the topics that “no one wanted to bring up” are ones that I disagree with so vehemently that it doesn’t make me appreciate Trump.

  • http://truthbeforedishonor.wordpress.com John Hitchcock

    Trump people are saying NH, NH, NH! Well, NH is a suburb of Boston. I don’t expect ANY Conservative to win that state’s Primary, this year or 30 years from now. Cruz might come in third or fourth in NH, that’s how weak the state is on Conservatism.

  • Chevypowered

    Everyone act like this is over with. No Trump fan but for his base this will be the time to rally up and make sure this loss will be the only one.

    This is not over with.
