President Donald Trump is no doubt an expert at the use of media to make his points.

He managed to pull off a hilarious troll of the Democrats during their convention this week when Kamala Harris was formally accepting her nomination for the Democrats’ Vice President spot.

Now, the Washington Post is, fair to say, not pro-Trump. It’s pretty much the CNN of the newspaper outlets.

But if you went to the WaPo to find out about Kamala, when you opened up the page, tons of Trump ads came up all over the homepage, because the Trump folks made a big ad buy.

That caused the folks on the left to have a huge meltdown, because they actually had to see Trump ads.

Trump also took over the Youtube masthead for 96 hours as well as multiple other news pages as well as the full page takeover of the WaPo and the Wall Street Journal.


She obviously needs reminding that it wasn’t President Donald Trump who spied on reporters and tried to put them in jail.

But it’s hilarious that they’re having a meltdown over this. Their fragile psyches can’t take even the sight of a Trump ad on “their” media.

From Fast Company via Townhall:

The flat image in the tweet above doesn’t convey this ad buy’s full effect. Scrolling through WaPo’s website, the ad at the top expands to fill the whole screen, demanding readers either x out or click through. It’s a total troll move on behalf of the president, debasing the newspaper that he frequently disparages as ‘the Amazon Washington Post.’ What could be a greater slight, at the publication’s expense, than forcing its owners to acknowledge they’re not in a position to turn down Trump’s money?

Nicely done, Trump team!
