Donald Trump vs. The Des Moines Register Editorial Board as told by Ron Burgundy

Ron Burgundy

The Gif Shop LogoMonday, the editorial board of the Des Moines Register unleashed a scathing rebuke of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. In the editorial, which called upon Trump to drop out of the presidential race, stated:

“He has become “the distraction with traction” — a feckless blowhard who can generate headlines, name recognition and polling numbers not by provoking thought, but by provoking outrage.
“In just five weeks, he has polluted the political waters to such an extent that serious candidates who actually have the credentials to serve as president can’t get their message across to voters. In fact, some of them can’t even win a spot in one of the upcoming debates, since those slots are reserved for candidates leading in the polls.
“Last week, just before he decided to go after McCain, Trump was at the top of at least one national poll. But being electable is not the same as being qualified, and Trump has proven himself not only unfit to hold office, but unfit to stand on the same stage as his Republican opponents.
“The best way Donald Trump can serve his country is by apologizing to McCain and terminating this ill-conceived campaign.”

Trump responded, as he has throughout the campaign whenever he has been attacked, by hitting back. Hard. Calling the editorial “sophomoric,” and noting that came out only after another round of political polls showed he was still a top-tier candidate, Trump said The Register had purposely downplayed his campaign’s impact since its inception.

The .Gif Shop staff immediately got back to work. Here’s their take.
