Donald Trump gave another insane interview to Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday night, in which he threatened to revoke the media credentials of the New York Times because “they don’t write good.”
Trump also unveiled a childish new nickname for the iconic Gray Lady: “The Failing New York Times.”
No, not kidding. He actually called the iconic Pulitzer-prize winning newspaper a loser.
“You look at The New York Times, I mean, the fail — I call it ‘The Failing New York Times’ because it won’t be in business for another, probably more than a few years unless somebody goes in and buys it and wants to lose a lot of money,” Trump said. “But The New York Times is so unfair. I mean they write three, four articles about me a day. No matter how good I do on something, they’ll never write good.”
Trump took specific aim at NYT reporter Maggie Haberman, who has covered the Trump campaign extensively.
“They don’t write good. They have people over there, like Maggie Haberman and others, they don’t — they don’t write good,” Trump said. “They don’t know how to write good.”
Evidently the self-proclaimed billionaire is now claiming to be an English professor. Oh, the irony.
While I’m not one of those grammar Nazis who go around correcting everyone’s language errors, any high school student has mastered the difference between adjective and adverb. Trump must’ve skipped English, otherwise he would have used correct grammar: They don’t “write well.”
The irony of his comments was not lost on the press today. They’ve been his Sarah Palin-like “word salad” speeches throughout the campaign. MSNBC’s Morning Joe nailed it with a video comparing Trump to Ben Stiller’s Zoolander, the dimwitted narcissistic VHI three-time male model of the year.

Trump’s grammar isn’t the only thing bad. No one would ever mistake him for a spelling bee champion:

But let’s set all these jokes aside for now and talk about Donald Trump, the man. Since he has gone from GOP primary buffoon to official Republican nominee for president, he’s no longer funny. He’s scary. His vision of a presidency is not ours. He sees it more as being a king who rules with an iron, albeit short-fingered hand.
America wants a leader, not a ruler. Especially a fascist one.
More ominous, the ego-driven Trump told a campaign rally crowd in Texas back in February that, were he to become president, he would partially repeal our First Amendment so he was able to sue the press. The Constitution doesn’t apply to him, he says.
“With me, they’re not protected, because I’m not like other people…We’re gonna…have people sue you like you never get sued before,” Trump said.
The Republican nominee has already banned nearly two dozen press outlets from his campaign including BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post, Univision, The Des Moines Register and POLITICO. He also revoked the press credentials for The Washington Post, claiming their campaign coverage was “very dishonest.” Now he is threatening the New York Times.
And while Trump claims to love our Constitution, — all 12 articles of it — (thre are only seven), the First Amendment, not so much.
The First Amendment reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Maybe I should translate that into basic English for Mr. Trump: The press is guaranteed the right to circulate opinions in print without censorship by the government.
Donald Trump scares me. The man knows nothing, and he knows the media knows he knows nothing. That’s what scares HIM.
