‘Dawn of the Brain Dead’: NY Daily News Cover Blames Trump NH Win on ‘Mindless Zombies’

Donald Trump won the New Hampshire primary tonight, so there’s a slight possibility moderates and mainstream-leaning voters are feeling pretty bummed. Of course, the folks at New York Daily News would be especially burned by the way things have gone, having used provocative covers and mocking headlines multiple times over the past few months to show how they really, REALLY dislike the GOP frontrunner.

The Huffington Post already tore into Trump tonight by giving him a blistering label as a sexist and a demagogue on their website, and now, it seems NY Daily News will be going the same way for tomorrow morning’s issue:

Yup. That would be an homage to the 1978 horror film Dawn of the Dead, depicting the cult of Trump as mindless New Hampshire zombies in worship of their clown leader. For good measure (or perhaps their own dismay), NY Daily News also threw in their previous covers of recent weeks, one of which mocked Trump for losing in Iowa, while the other challenged tonight’s voters to make a different choice.

It’s been an interesting night.
