Donald Trump the Editor: ‘Who is Ben Smith?’

VF Daily blogger Juli Weiner is the latest writer to be flogged by her new editor Donald Trump. The presidential hopeful sent Weiner’s real editor, Graydon Carter, a print-out of a March 17 blog post on Trump’s presidential campaign marked up with questions like “Who is Ben Smith?” and accusing Carter of not getting “the Trump Thing.”

Trump circled Weiner‘s byline and wrote, “Bad Writer!” He also circled Politico blogger Smith’s name, asking in bold black marker, “Who is Ben Smith?” In this case, Trump was right. It was first and only reference and Weiner had no explanation of who he is.

See the marked up post here and decide whether or not you’d want Trump as your editor.
