NH Newspaper Publisher Responds to Trump Attacks: He’s Spewing ‘Bald-Faced Lies’
Donald Trump has been ranting against the New Hampshire Union-Leader since yesterday because 1) publisher Joseph McQuaid wrote an editorial really tearing into Trump, and 2) they endorsed a candidate other than Trump (Chris Christie).
In response, Trump has been going off on McQuaid and the paper, claiming McQuaid asked him for all sorts of favors in the past that he obliged with, but the second Trump turned down the paper’s GOP candidate forum, they turned on him.
Trump even made the specific accusation on Twitter that McQuaid “wanted ads, lunches, donations, speeches from me, and tweets––very unethical.”
McQuaid appeared on CNN tonight and just laughed. He said the day after the forum he refused to attend, Trump “was still asking for our endorsement.”
“I am mildly surprised,” he said, “at the number of bald-faced lies that he committed yesterday and trying to flame us with his Trump tower of inferno.”
As for his editorial tearing into Trump, McQuaid said he’s telling the truth about Trump, whereas Trump is lying through his teeth (not to mention all of his brash insults).
