The New York Daily News hit President Donald Trump on its Wednesday front page with a line that Democrats used in the House Intelligence Committee’s report on the Ukraine scandal and the impeachment inquiry.
The front page of the tabloid newspaper featured the following phrase on a silhouetted image of the president: “The Founding Fathers prescribed a remedy for a chief executive who places his personal interests above those of the country: Impeachment.”
The line appeared on page 12 of the detailed 300-page report.
The newspaper’s editorial board also took aim at White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham in an op-ed published Tuesday afternoon.
It said the very fact that Grisham had claimed the report “reads like the ramblings of a basement blogger straining to prove something when there is evidence of nothing” is “the surest sign that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) just delivered a compelling, coherent presentation of what happened” in the Ukraine scandal.
“There may be no single, smoking gun, but there’s ample acrid black stuff rising from the White House,” the board concluded.
