EXCLUSIVE PALIN CALLS FOR BOYCOTT AFTER BUZZFEED HIT PIECE ON TRUMP
Breitbart Big Journalism ^ | 19 Feb 2014, 9:13 AM PDT | Tony Lee

Posted on 02/19/2014 2:55:07 PM PST by onyx




Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a message for Donald Trump about BuzzFeed blogger McKay Coppins, and it's one that other Republican officials might heed when liberal journalists come looking to "humanize" them.

"This nervous geek isn't fit to tie the Donald's wingtips," Palin told Breitbart News after Trump ripped Coppins for lampooning him with what he alleged were out-of-context quotes and boorish behavior at Trump's Florida resort. "Don't ever give him attention again."

Coppins tricked Trump's advisers into thinking he would profile Trump as a potential "major" GOP 2016 presidential hopeful. As Breitbart News reported, the Jan. 5 email from Coppins to now former-Trump aide Sam Nunberg read:

“I've already done big profiles of all the major 2016 GOP players, including substantial sit-down interviews with Rand Paul and Scott Walker, and features on Ryan, Rubio, Cruz, etc,” Coppins told Nunberg, adding that choosing BuzzFeed for the profile would “show that he's ahead of the curve and understands the new media landscape.”

His access secure, Coppins attended Trump's speech at New Hampshire's famed "Politics and Eggs" breakfast, which has hosted nearly every major presidential candidate. The resulting piece, "36 Hours on the Fake Campaign Trail with Donald Trump," was one of the most venomous hit pieces in recent memory. Coppins trashed Trump as a joke, with all the preconceived notions, snark, backhanded compliments, innuendo, and mockery that those like MSNBC's Chuck Todd, a notorious Trump hater, and Coppins' editor, Ben Smith, have been throwing around for years.

Coppins appears to have sucked on too many sausages.

I suspect the stupid ones will never learn.
They still want the media to “like” them.

Sounds like this Coppins scumbag has a track record of this.

Good for Sarah, it’d be nice to see this turkey cut off at the knees.

In all fairness, Trump is a complete buffoon.

Coppins looks like the geek in the school yard how gets his as* kicked every day.

Wonder if he is a member in good standing at mac daddies bath house, Looks like he would be a perfect fit or maybe a sloppy fit.

I read the Trump piece, and it wasn’t all that bad. Yes, it paints him as a narcissistic, self-aggrandizing fake “politician,” and suggests that he is stringing us along and will never actually run for office, but who didn’t know any of that already?

Buzzfeed ain't zactly MSM so I kinda figger McKay Coppins is using his interview of Trump as an audition tape for ABCNNBCBS MSNBC or Bloomberg. You know, higher pay, more visibility maybe even make him a star.

This isn't about Trump. It's about how flaming liberal buttholes in the media smear people.

The one thing I love about Palin more than anything else, is that she completely understands the media, and she knows how to deal with them. She is not going to accept their narratives and will call them out whenever they lie about her. If more Republicans did this, we'd have total control of Washington and the Dims would be a sideshow of scruffy left-wing freaks.

Trump has had only good words for Sarah, so I guess she’s returning the kindness.

I would have thought Trump was too smart & cynical to fall for this guy. Now he needs the Divine Sarah for support! Only makes her look better than ever.
