Des Moines Register Calls on ‘Bloviating Side Show’ Trump to Get Out of Race

trumpA major newspaper in one of the first states on the primary election calendar is calling on Donald Trump to get out of the race. The Des Moines Register has an editorial tonight expressing how tired they’re getting of Trump’s “bloviating side show.”

After Trump’s attack on John McCain over his military service, the Register came to the conclusion that Trump is a “self-absorbed, B-list celebrity” who “has been more focused on promoting himself, and his brand, than in addressing the problems facing the nation.”

The editorial board condemns Trump’s “offensive” and “disgraceful” attack on McCain, and calls on the “feckless blowhard” to get out of the race:

Trump has proven himself not only unfit to hold office, but unfit to stand on the same stage as his Republican opponents.

The best way Donald Trump can serve his country is by apologizing to McCain and terminating this ill-conceived campaign.

Another media outlet is going after Trump as well. The New York Daily News features this cover tomorrow:
