NH Paper Endorses Johnson Over Trump

One of New Hampshire’s leading publications, The Union Leader, decided to endorse libertarian candidate Gary Johnson over Donald Trump, a break in tradition for the paper which has backed the Republican nominee for over 100 years. “The man is a liar, a bully, a buffoon,” wrote Joseph P. McQuaid, the Union Leader publisher, in an editorial about Trump. “He denigrates any individual or group that displeases him. He has dishonored military veterans and their families, made fun of the physically frail, and changed political views almost as often as he has changed wives.”
