Star Tribune Calls For Trump To Quit Presidential Race

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota’s largest newspaper is urging Republican nominee Donald Trump to quit the presidential race.

The Star Tribune posted an editorial Saturday after a 2005 recording surfaced of Trump making lewd and predatory remarks about women.

The newspaper says Trump’s “vulgar view of women and his conceivably criminal activity toward them” is not “an October surprise,” given his previous comments about Hispanics, Muslims, veterans and women.

The Star Tribune calls on Trump to “immediately relinquish his nomination,” and says Democrat Hillary Clinton “almost certainly will win” if he stays in. The newspaper suggests running mate Mike Pence or U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan could take his place.

Minnesota Republicans including former Gov. Tim Pawlenty and House Speaker Kurt Daudt have condemned Trump’s remarks.

Trump has vowed not to drop out.

    The Red Star can suck it!

    The Red Star is just trying to get readership back.

    There are only a few words that actually capture the true meaning of failure and that’s, WCCZERO, Star Tribune and liberal.

    This site is pathetic and the only reason I come here is to offend as many low IQ brain dead liberals as possible.

    This is no surprise. If one measures the anti-Trump pieces in both the weekday and Sunday editions it is overwhelming both in number and the source, mostly liberal columnists and media sources (MPR, NPR, NY Times, Washington Post, etc.) Eventually it gets to the point where the editorial group tips too far on the teeter-totter and falls off. I guess they did so today.

  5. Wow I am surprised WCCO has the comment section open on what the Star & Sickle wrote. Their readership is down so they will do and say anything to get hits on their website! No one cares what they say, it’s a left leaning paper. As a matter of fact I have seen more Trump signs than Hillary signs, and I live in a Liberal area!! Go Trump 2016!!!!!

    1. TRUMP 2016! says:

      This man can say anything and his ratings continue to blow by the criminal Clinton!

    So star tribune admitted they are bias and for Hillary.. Not that its a surprise. But the arrogance of their bias has reached all new levels. They don’t even pretend not to be.
