BuzzFeed axes a $1.3 million ad deal with the RNC over Trump


#21

This sounds more like a turf war. Buzzfeed doesn’t want anyone else trying to corner their market in clickbait. And Trump’s campaign is pure distilled clickbait. Worse, in covering the Trump campaign, the mainstream media is starting to look indistinguishable from Buzzfeed. I bet they’re real pissed.

He is doing a necessary job. He pulled the lid of the jerk jar, which turned out to be bafflingly larger that most people thought.

I think BuzzFeed is making the right move here, but this seems exactly the kind of news Trump and his supporters would use to advertise that what they are doing is working.

Perhaps the RNC is the asshole and now must ask itself if the projectile diarrhea its spews into the toilet of American politics is worth being taken over by the tremendous thrombosed hemorrhoid feeding off their toxic crap.

Trump is cheap imitation calamari?

BuzzFeed actually has an extremely good news department. It’s surprising how good it is given how BuzzFeed started in clickbait listicles.

Makes me wonder which members of that motley crew they were eager to run ads for when they made the deal. Cruz? Carson? Fiorina?

Boobs fulfil an important biological function as well as often being aesthetically pleasing. Trump does neither.
