Sarah Palin Calls For Buzzfeed Boycott Over "Hit Piece" On Donald Trump

Via Donald Trump's publicity team at Breitbart:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a message for Donald Trump about BuzzFeed blogger McKay Coppins, and it's one that other Republican officials might heed when liberal journalists come looking to "humanize" them. "This nervous geek isn't fit to tie the Donald's wingtips," Palin told Breitbart News after Trump ripped Coppins for lampooning him with what he alleged were out-of-context quotes and boorish behavior at Trump's Florida resort. "Don't ever give him attention again." Coppins tricked Trump's advisers into thinking he would profile Trump as a potential "major" GOP 2016 presidential hopeful.

His access secure, Coppins attended Trump's speech at New Hampshire's famed "Politics and Eggs" breakfast, which has hosted nearly every major presidential candidate. The resulting piece, "36 Hours on the Fake Campaign Trail with Donald Trump," was one of the most venomous hit pieces in recent memory. Coppins trashed Trump as a joke, with all the preconceived notions, snark, backhanded compliments, innuendo, and mockery that those like MSNBC's Chuck Todd, a notorious Trump hater, and Coppins' editor, Ben Smith, have been throwing around for years.
In case you missed it, here is the hilarious Buzzfeed piece.
