Paul Ryan made the early edition of the New York Daily News’ Wednesday cover under the headline “I’m With Racist,” but he was saved from broader circulation — by Hillary Clinton.
The Daily News tweeted a front page featuring Ryan and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, whose attacks on a Mexican American judge were labeled as racist by Ryan on Tuesday. But for later editions, the tabloid splashed "HER" on the cover over a photo of Clinton as she assumed the historic mantle of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
Ryan had called out Trump for his attack on U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel and his Mexican heritage. Trump accused Curiel, the judge assigned to oversee a Trump University lawsuit, of bias based on Trump’s calls to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.
