A day after Weekly Standard announced it would be shuttering and immediately laying off staff, President Donald Trump delighted in the news.
Calling the conservative magazine “pathetic and dishonest,” the president further disparaged its co-founder and longtime editor Bill Kristol, saying he “never had a clue.”
“Too bad,” Trump tweeted. “May it rest in peace!”
Responses were overwhelmingly negative, with numerous critics questioning Trump’s decision to delight in American job losses.
