Daily News Dubs Trump's NH Primary Victory 'Dawn of the Brain Dead'

Real-estate developer Donald Trump slammed the New York Daily News after the tabloid's Wednesday cover mocked him and his supporters.

Trump said Wednesday on Fox News that the newspaper was a "totally failing paper" trying to use his name to try to prop up its business.

"It's going to be closing soon I'm pretty sure," he said.

The Daily News unveiled the cover shortly after Trump became the projected winner in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. The tabloid, which frequently depicts Trump as a clown, did so again.

"Dawn of the brain dead," its headline blared in all capital letters. It added below: "Clown comes back to life with N.H. win as mindless zombies turn out in droves."

Trump also responded Wednesday morning on Twitter. The Republican presidential front-runner said the paper was "worthless" and its owner, fellow billionaire Mort Zuckerman, had "a major inferiority complex."

The candidate also criticized Politico.
