They may vote for Trump, but they’re not his kind of people

Charles Pecker, owner of the National Enquirer, is a long-time buddy of Donald Trump, and that bias is reflected in his supermarket tabloid known for its shaky relationship to the facts.

The bias was certainly obvious during last year’s election campaign–the publication pilloried Hillary while singing the praises of the Republican candidate. Pecker said his readers hated Hillary and loved The Donald, so he was just giving them what wanted.

Then Pecker told The New Yorker magazine the following about readers of the Enquirer: “These are people who lead their life failing, so they want to read negative things about people who have gone up and then come down.”

Doesn’t sound like you’ll run into any of them at Mar-a-Lago.

    If you are going to the Enquirer for political information you have deeper issues than can be addressed in this setting! Of course the same could be said for HuffPo I suppose!

    I recall voting for the black cop running the LAPD when he ran for Governor. I knew he was a democrat but I liked what he said and wanted to see a grownup take over from Jerry Brown. Later George D was Governor and though claiming to be a conservative, he signed some of the worst lefty laws I can recall. But that is the game.

    Yeah, the Enquirer is only on my reading list in the checkout line at Savemart, but let’s not forget they scooped everybody on the John Edwards story.

    • They also got the picture of Gary Hart with his girl friend on their love boat, but that just shows even a guy who’s blind-folded can hit a bulls-eye once in a while. Skepticism is the best approach to the Enquirer.
