Don’t be surprised if you start to see some much more flattering headlines about Donald Trump and his family on the cover of Us Weekly in the near future.
The celeb news mag has been bought up by American Media Inc., whose Chairman and CEO David Packer is a big Donald Trump supporter!
You may have noticed one of his other magazines, The National Enquirer, had a hand in destroying Trump’s Republican rival Ted Cruz with “reporting” on his extramarital affairs and father’s roles in the JFK assassination. Seriously.
In a statement, Packer said:
“We are excited to bring one of the most distinctive and powerful media brands to AMI and are looking forward to continuing its great editorial standards its loyal and growing audience expects.”
If you are a loyal Us reader, we wouldn’t exactly count on those standards continuing. The entire 45-person staff apparently have to re-interview for their own jobs right away. Eesh.
AMI also owns the Enquirer, Radar Online, Star, OK! Magazine, and Soap Opera Digest. This will be their largest celebrity news magazine to date.
Countdown to a “Just Like Us” feature about golden toilets…
R.I.P. Us Weekly.
