Say what you will about Trump. He’s a nut, he’s a loud-mouthed braggadocio billionaire who has never been elected to public office and is currently mucking up the political waters on the right. While all of this is true, he’s also a declared GOP candidate campaigning to be president of the United States. And, like it or not, Trump now leads the Republican pack at 17% over Jeb Bush’s second-place at 14%.
Today, Huffington Post announced that Trump, a declared candidate, does not meet the standards to be on their politics page:
After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.
