Wall Street Journal Slaps Back At Donald Trump: "The Truth Hurts"

Donald Trump's war against the conservative Wall Street Journal continues as the Trumpster demanded an apology over the paper's editorial which declared he would be "a sure loser in November."

In a new editorial, the WSJ noted that Democrat Hillary Clinton has received more votes during the primary season than Trump has.

Trump took to Twitter (for a change) and said having 16 opponents made a difference.

Via Talking Points Memo:

“Of the 20.35 million GOP primary votes cast so far, he has received 7.54 million, or a mere 37%. Despite the media desire to call him unstoppable, Mr. Trump is the weakest Republican front-runner since Gerald Ford in 1976.”

The editorial board pointed out that though Trump may have diehard followers, his unfavorables are also remarkably high: “The Real Clear Politics polling average shows twice as many adults have negative views (61%) than positive views (32.5%) of Mr. Trump.”

As for Trump’s remark that the newspaper’s editorials don’t matter because “nobody cares” what the Wall Street Journal writes anymore, the board thanked him for being “such a loyal reader.”

I, personally, disagree with the Trumpmeister. Whether 16 or 60 opponents, your supporters can vote for you in the primary. If you really are all that and a bag of chips, you'd have the votes.
