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 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 was good to her and she is loyal to her friends.

Just look at McCain. She’s a much better friend to him than he is to her.

God will reward Sarah Palin, if He isn’t already.

Seriously, I'm not sure it's a good idea for Governor Palin to appear to suck up so much to "the Donald and his wingtips."

I read the Trump piece...I’m not sure I see how relating how events unfolded and sharing what people say can be construed as a hit piece.

But then, I think Trump is a buffoon, a liar, a megalomaniac, a cheat and has zero interest in anyone but himself and perhaps his children.

I wish he would just quit pretending to be interested in any political office...of any kind...in any place.

And I wish people would just ignore the orange jerk. Now...I normally don’t like to pick on what someone looks like...but in Trump’s case...his skin color (orange) and his hair color (also orange) are not something he was born with. He voluntarily does the orange thing to himself. It really does indicate that Trump has no one who tells him the truth...NO ONE seems to dare tell him the truth.

Sarah, while you may be right about your advice to Trump, my advice to you would be to stay away from Trump. He is nothing but a loud-mouthed opportunist.

Fewer words, yes. But not nearly as eloquent (or scathing) as your comment.

“Trump is a buffoon, a liar, a megalomaniac, a cheat and has zero interest in anyone but himself and perhaps his children.”

Trump needs to get off the fence—go into Politics—maybe fund a new Party—The Liberty Party—or run for and win Governorship of New York—then clean up the state and do a good job. Bring back Jobs—then and only then, I might consider him for the White House. He must prove himself—That or get off the stage and let real political people do the job of saving the nation. He might make a good VP—He can be a hatchet man for the President—might I say Presdent Palin? or President Cruz?

That probably describes the childhood of most Liberal males, which is why they live out adulthood still holding a grudge against successful men like Trump and attractive women like Sarah.

If you can't recognize Trump as a buffoon, I can only assume that you'll for any chucklehead's self-projected image, no matter how in conflict it is with his actual history.

I worry about people like you and the fact that you vote.
