With the nearing election date, campaigning for both major parties is getting more rigorous. To add to the fervor, David Brock and his pro-Clinton super PAC, Correct the Record, has come out with a striking tabloid named American Enquirer with the punch line: "News That Makes America GREAT."
The cover story "PUTIN & TRUMP… Political Bromance Is Brewing" of the debut issue shows the two leaders surrounded by floating red hearts, Politico reports.
The 16-page tabloid includes funny and sarcastic illustrations of Pinocchio, a mushroom cloud, Richard Nixon, Donald Duck ("THE DONALD IS DUCKING QUESTIONS ABOUT TAXES"), according to Politico.
A digital version of the same is available.
Brock, who is spending millions to support Hillary Clinton, intends to dispatch autographed copies of the debut issue to Trump at Trump Tower, and to the Republican presidential nominee's adviser Roger Stone.
Brad Woodhouse, president of Correct the Record, taunted Trump for his "tabloid" approach. "Trump wants a tabloid campaign, and he would be a tabloid president," Woodhouse told Politico. "So we said: 'Let's make a tabloid.'"
On the motive behind the tabloid, Woodhouse said, "The Enquirer was David's brainchild, as a way to push back on the politics of scandal and personal destruction."
"We were thinking of some way to give lift to some of the stories that have been reported, but are part and parcel of who Donald Trump really is," Woodhouse added.
Correct the Record, which plans to distribute copies to reporters and other supporters, has its eyes on Sunday's debate at St. Louis. The tabloid will not only be distributed to journalists, but will also be sent to anchors, producers, editorial and opinion writers, campaign travelers and embeds.
"We'll make a big push in the St. Louis media market before the debate, so local news coverage of 'Tabloid Trump' greets him and his team when they arrive this weekend," Woodhouse said. "We will email digital copies of this to hundreds of thousands of Americans and promote it to millions more on our social platforms."
Correct the Record, which became a super PAC in May 2015, has raised roughly $8 million.
