It's not hard to think of news outlets that go out of their way to boost Donald Trump, but do any of them go quite as far as the National Enquirer
I've passed by the tabloid countless times at grocery stores, and as best as I can tell, it's always focused largely on celebrity gossip: Celebrity A is having an affair with Celebrity B; Celebrity C is dying; Celebrity D is in rehab; etc. It's oddly fascinating, though, to see the National Enquirer
take steps to add pro-Trump propaganda to its mission.
Its current cover, for example, tells
readers President Obama has "ignited" a national security crisis, but Americans shouldn't worry -- because Donald Trump will "fix" the problem.
Last week's cover said
in all-caps, "Lying Obamas Destroyed!" There's "proof," the National Enquirer
added, that the president "was not" born in the United States.
The cover before that featured
a big cover photo of Trump and his family. The cover before that assured
readers that Trump is "taking charge" and has achieved "success in just 36 days!"
The cover before that insisted
Trump will "save 25 million jobs!" The cover before that told
readers that "Trump was right" about "Muslim spies in Obama's CIA!"
The cover before that said
Trump's border wall will "smash" drug traffickers. The cover before that said Trump will do amazing things in his first 100 days -- alongside a headline that read, "We told you so
." The cover before that said
Hillary Clinton is "going to jail." The cover before that called
Clinton a "corrupt, racist criminal."
