'DEAD CLOWN WALKING': Tabloids skewer Trump's Iowa loss

The Daily News reveled in Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s Monday-night loss in the Iowa caucuses to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

The New York tabloid, which has for weeks pummelled Trump, depicted the Manhattan billionaire as a clown under the headline: “Dead clown walking.” When Trump launched his campaign last June, the Daily News had similarly painted him as a clown.

The paper also wrote that Trump sounded “like a beaten man” in his “morose” concession speech on Monday.

The New York Post, meanwhile, has been far less critical of Trump.

The tabloid opted to focus its headline — “CRUZ-IFIED” — on Cruz, who won Iowa despite polls predicting he would lose to Trump in the state’s caucuses.
