Boston Globe Runs Satirical Front Page Showing What Life Would Be Like Under President Trump
April 10, 2016

No doubt this will have conservatives carping about how that evil so-called "liberal media" has it out for poor old Donald Trump: Boston Globe Hammers Trump With Fake Front Page:

With a satirical front page in their Sunday edition, The Boston Globe is giving readers a look at what they believe America would be like with Donald Trump as president.

As the fake headlines make clear, the Globe’s editorial board is not optimistic:

“DEPORTATIONS TO BEGIN: President Trump calls for tripling of ICE force; riots continue”

“Markets sink as trade war looms”

“New libel law targets ‘absolute scum’ in press”

“Bank glitch halts border wall work”

“Trump on Nobel prize short list”

The page, dated April 9, 2017, will run at the front of the paper’s “Ideas” section. An editor’s note at the bottom of the page reads:

“This is Donald Trump’s America. What you read on this page is what might happen if the GOP front­runner can put his ideas into practice, his words into action. Many Americans might find this vision appealing,but the Globe’s editorial board finds it deeply troubling.”


The paper released the fake page along with a scathing editorial from the Globe’s board titled, “The GOP must stop Trump.” The editorial calls Trump’s vision of America “deeply disturbing,” “appalling” and “un-American,” and labels his campaign tactics “toxic.” The board criticizes the Republican Party for permitting Trump’s rise, and demands that they do everything they can to deny Trump the nomination. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) is no better an option, the board writes, suggesting House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) or 2012 nominee Mitt Romney instead. Read on...
