By Dylan Byers. Huffington Post took a visceral and aggressive approach to Donald Trump’s victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday night, blasting the GOP front-runner as a “racist, sexist demagogue.”
The headline on the homepage, in bold, red, 72-point font, reads: “NH GOES RACIST SEXIST XENOPHOBIC.” The headline on the story: “A Racist, Sexist Demagogue Just Won The New Hampshire Primary” . . .
In late January, Huffington Post announced that all of its Trump-related articles would include an editor’s note reading, “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.” (Read more from “Huffington Post Goes off on Trump, Calls Him a ‘Racist, Sexist Demagogue'” HERE)
Trump Echoes Supporter’s Vulgar Insult of Ted Cruz

At a September speech in New Hampshire, Trump called Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s friendship “political bulls***.”

Trump was in the middle of a riff about his answer on waterboarding at Saturday’s GOP debate, when he made light of Cruz’s answer on the same question.
“They asked Ted Cruz, serious question, ‘Well what do you think of waterboarding?’ Is it okay?” Trump said. “And honestly I thought he’d say absolutely. And he didn’t.” (Read more from “Trump Echoes Supporter’s Vulgar Insult of Ted Cruz” HERE)
