El Trumpo gave us another glimpse into what Trumpmerica will be like under his Putin-loving reign as he tossed out another reporter for being just slightly critical of him in an article.
From Raw Story:
A New York Times reporter who had written a critical story about GOP front runner Donald Trump’s Iowa campaign operation was kicked out of a campaign event on Friday.
Times reporter Trip Gabriel wrote he arrived late to an event at Pizza Ranch in Iowa. But shortly after arriving and going through screening, Gabriel was turned away by a Trump campaign staffer and a police officer.
“A Trump campaign aide walking beside the officer said I was being excluded on orders from ‘Chuck and Stephanie,’ an apparent reference to Mr. Trump’s Iowa state director, Chuck Laudner, and his wife, Stephanie, also a staff member,” Gabriel wrote.
The officer told him, “It’s a private event, you have to go.”
Earlier this week, Gabriel wrote a story entitled, “Donald Trump’s Iowa Ground Game Seems to Be Missing a Coach.” In it, he notes that Trump’s ground team in Iowa is disorganized.
“Compared with the well-oiled machines of other leading candidates in both parties, particularly that of the Cruz campaign, the Trump ground game in Iowa seems partly an afterthought, as if Mr. Trump’s strategy is to leverage his charisma — the appeal that draws thousands to his rallies — to motivate voters,” Gabriel writes.
He points out that volunteers tapped to lead efforts and turn out voters for the caucuses less than three weeks away include a 9/11 truther, a person who has yet to knock on a single door and a person who believes finding 25 voters is impossible to do.
Smart choice. Nobody likes the New York Times anyway.
Or journalists for that matter…
