The New York Daily News Just Blasted Donald Trump

The New York Daily News once again mocked the victory of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday. The paper's front page cover features a photo of Trump as a zombie clown, a follow up from its cover earlier this month of Trump as a clown, published after he came in second place to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the Iowa Caucus.

"Dawn of the Brain Dead," the headline reads. "Clown comes back to life with N.H. win as mindless zombies turn out in droves."

Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders were declared the winners of the New Hampshire primary immediately after polls closed shortly after 8 p.m. ET. The Associated Press reports that Ohio Gov. John Kasich came in second place in the Republican primary.


The February 2 cover of the New York Daily News showed Trump as a clown with the headline "Dead Clown Walking," a mocking reference to the candidate's loss in the first national electoral event. But the latest cover, which will be published on Wednesday, features the business mogul in clown makeup, figuratively risen from the dead.
