The Huffington Post takes on Donald Trump

The Huffington Post uses home screen to criticize Donald Trump after the New Hampshire primary.

Former reality television facet and current butt of many a national joke, Donald Trump beat other candidates in the New Hampshire Republican primary on Tuesday. Trump won 35 percent of the voters in New Hampshire while Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders took 58 percent of the Democratic vote.

Immediately after the results were announced, many Americans voiced their disapproval with the people of New Hampshire. Citizens voiced their opinions on Twitter, Facebook and many other social media sites.

What surprised people the most was The Huffington Post’s webpage. The website was decked out with giant, red text reading “NH GOES RACIST SEXIST XENOPHOBIC,” with a picture of Trump ominously pointing his finger most likely at a minority he was belittling.

Was The Huffington Post wrong in doing such? Or are the Post staff members just finally fed up?

It is time American voters take a serious break and really think about the people they are blindly pledging their allegiance to.

Supporting a man who wants to build a wall to keep out Mexican rapists and drug dealers goes against the foundations of what America was founded on. America as a country is and always will be a melting pot. Trump’s paternal grandparents were even German immigrants for the sake of all that is sane.

Perpetuating xenophobia sends the wrong message to anyone who is not within the borders of the United States. If America is truly the land of opportunities, we need to show people they are welcome within our borders without a fear of hate speech being regurgitated at them from the mouths of our bigot “citizens.”

Without the support of the people, Trump is nothing but a blowhard in a bad hairpiece. People truly do have the power in elections and it is imperative that the collective United States stop buying into the Trump brand of sensationalism.
