If you’re the executive editor of a gossip rag like People Mag, is it fitting to go on Twitter and announce that you hate the president of the United States?

Apparently for Kate Coyne, the answer to that is a big fat yes.

Despite her outpouring of hatred on Twitter and exposing her political views in the worst of ways, she has a pretty impressive resumé.

Coyne has worked for People since 2008, when she began as senior editor. She became executive editor in 2014. Before People, she worked at Good Housekeeping and New York Post‘s “Page Six.” She studied English and Literature at Oxford and attended the American University of Paris.

People obviously covers all things Trump — everything from Trump’s first 100 days on Twitter to Eric and Lara Trump expecting their first baby. Don’t forget, People has an interesting past with Trump. Last year, the mag ran a special November issue on Trump and his family a month after it backed a former female writer who said Trump once pushed her up against a wall and tried to stuff his tongue in her mouth.

“The story is not a celebration or an endorsement and we continue to stand by Natasha Stoynoff, whose account of being attacked by Trump in 2005 is recounted in this week’s cover story,” a People rep told Fox411 last year. At the time, there was even a hashtag, #BOYCOTTPEOPLEMAGAZINE.

In October, 2016, People ran an explosive story about what allegedly happened to Stoynoff.

“We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat,” she wrote.

Over the weekend, Trump went to Pennsylvania to deliver a stump speech and reinforced his ongoing message of how much he can’t stand the “dishonest” media.

At least in Coyne’s case, the feeling is quite mutual.
