Donald Trump tweeted this afternoon:

Just cancelled my subscription to @USATODAY. Boring newspaper with no mojo–must be losing a fortune. Founder @AlNeuharth has always been a lightweight—just like his paper.

Tough to handicap @realDonaldTrump vs. @USATODAY in a Twitter war. Probably have to make a Trump a 2-point favorite but line could change.Richard Deitsch

    As a frequent traveler who encounters USA Today during my hotels stays, I’ve noticed the page count has shrunk rather dramatically of late.  Some days in the upper 20′s to lower 30 pages. Content has substantially decreased too.  Not surprising but still sad.

    don’t you just love the donald? literally anybody who criticizes him or says something even slightly negative about him or who just disagrees with him is a lightweight, a failure, classless, not very smart, even an idiot etc. etc. do you suppose he ever looks in the mirror?
