The Huffington Post plans to denounce Donald Trump as a “rampant xenophobe,” “racist,” and “bully” in all of its articles about the presidential candidate going forward, the website announced Tuesday.
“Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.,” reads the kicker, which first appeared on an article published about Trump’s ongoing feud with Fox News.
HuffPo told Politico that the denunciation will be added to all its articles about Trump going forwards, a pledge it appears to be keeping thus far.
“Yes, we’re planning to add this note to all future stories about Trump,” a HuffPo representative said. “No other candidate has called for banning 1.6 billion people from the country! If any other candidate makes such a proposal, we’ll append a note under pieces about them.”
An explicit anti-Trump posture isn’t surprising from HuffPo. Previously, the website had insisted on covering his presidential campaign solely in its entertainment section. The durability and success of Trump’s campaign eventually forced the site to cave in, and in December Trump was admitted into the regular politics section. When it threw in the title, the site announced that it would remain committed to attacking Trump’s candidacy despite the shift.
