Trump Hits NH Union Leader Publisher McQuaid: 'Lowlife'

Trump Hits NH Union Leader Publisher McQuaid: 'Lowlife'

By    |   Monday, 28 December 2015 08:30 PM

Donald Trump, angry about Monday's signed, front-page editorial by New Hampshire Union Leader publisher Joe McQuaid that called the GOP presidential front-runner a "crude blowhard," fired back by declaring McQuaid a "lowlife" and a "lapdog" for candidate Chris Christie.

"He's a real lowlife, no question about it," Trump said of McQuaid in an interview with New Hampshire TV station WMUR.

"
This man is absolutely terrible," Trump said, piling on by adding, "He's just a bad guy. He's in my opinion a very dishonest man."

Trump also went after McQuaid's newspaper, once known as a conservative political powerhouse, which recently endorsed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for the GOP nomination over Trump.

"The Union Leader used to be a great paper. Now it is a small fraction of itself," Trump said, saying the publication "is failing."

Trump accused the newspaper of colluding with Christie for the endorsement.

Later Monday, at a rally in the Granite State, Trump continued his attack, calling McQuaid "Christie's lapdog."

In his phone interview with WMUR, Trump said the bad blood stemmed from his decision not to participate in  the paper's candidate forum.

"I knew he'd do it because I didn't do his debate," Trump told WMUR. "when his debate turned out to be a total failure I didn't do his debate," Trump said.

Trump was referring to a Union Leader candidate forum in August that he skipped.

McQuaid scoffed at Trump's claims, showing the TV station a he got from Trump two days after the forum.

McQuaid quoted Trump's letter as saying: "I hope this along with many other of my correct decisions will lead you, a man I have great respect for, and the Union Leader to endorse me at the appropriate time."
