Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took to Twitter—his preferred communication method—on Wednesday morning to attack the New York Daily News for its anti-Trump tabloid covers and stories.

The Daily News’ Wednesday cover showed Trump wearing clown make-up alongside a mob of “brain dead” zombies. Previous covers depicted Trump decapitating the Statue of Liberty and as a “dead clown walking.”

Trump started by attacking owner and publisher Mort Zuckerman.

But no attack on the media would be complete without mentioning Politico, who has repeatedly drawn Trump’s ire.

Trump told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday that Zuckerman is “jealous as hell” of Trump’s campaign.

“They use my name. They do the clown thing every week. I’m on with a clown picture,” he said. “Maybe it sells, maybe it doesn’t sell. But the paper is going bad.”
