Trump Accounts for Almost Half of Election Coverage

Everyone loves to hate The Donald.

According to a new study, Trump—beautifully moronic Trump—accounted for 48 percent of all 2016 presidential election coverage last week. That includes social and traditional media.

The Washington Post reports that from June 30 to July 6, Trump was mentioned 1.9 million times by both types of media. Those mentions were more than twice as likely to be negative than positive, but people are definitely obsessed.

It’s especially insane when you consider that Hillary Clinton, a person who actually has a real chance at becoming the next president, was only mentioned 448,000 times.

Still wondering why Trump finally decided to run?
