The New York Times used two full pages of Monday’s paper to print out every person and organization insulted by Donald Trump on Twitter since his presidential campaign launched more than a year ago.
The list contains 281 “people, places, and things” the Republican presidential nominee has insulted on Twitter, including Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton (“Crooked,” “very dumb,” “totally confused,” etc.), media organizations ( “so dishonest” Wall Street Journal, “failing” Vanity Fair, etc.), and entire countries ( “terrible” China, “totally corrupt” Mexico, “a total mess-big crime” Germany, etc.).
The Times first published the list online in January and has updated it throughout the campaign.
Trump has tumbled in the polls after a trying month for his campaign that has included revelations that he may have avoided paying federal income taxes for nearly two decades and that he bragged in a 2005 recording about kissing and groping women. Since Trump described his remarks in the tape as “just words” at one of two debate performances that failed to help him in the polls, several women have come forward accusing him of sexual assault.
The data journalism website FiveThirtyEight forecasts that Clinton has an 86.2% chance of winning the presidency, while a RealClearPolitics polling average has Clinton leading Trump by 6 points nationally.
