A few months back, I wrote about Henry Blodget’s fawning coverage of Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign.

Even after Trump had described Mexican immigrants as rapists and promised to ban all Muslims from America, still Blodget was gushing about Trump’s work ethic, his business success and the myriad things people love about him…

“I’ve followed his career… I read his books when I was younger… He’s very impressive… His book [Crippled America] is actually smarter than a lot of people say it is… the fact that he galvanized so many people is incredible to watch. I read [the Art of the Deal] when I was figuring out what I was going to do with my life.”

Blodget even went on the road with Trump, reporting live from campaign rallies before sitting down with the candidate for a ridiculous softball interview…

“Another thing people love about you is that you're tough, and you make a persuasive argument on the trail that our leaders are weak, they're not being tough enough...”

“But you talk about, one of the things you've done so well in your business career, is you find the best people, you give them the mission, and they do it and you watch over them. So in this case, you say to generals, ‘ISIS is a problem, give me a plan?’”

“Another thing people love about you is the can-do message. In this case, Congress doesn't work for you, you can't fire them. So how do you get things done?”

While sites like the Huffington Post were appending warnings about Trump’s fascism to their articles, Blodget filled Business Insider with positive story after positive story about Trump. Here's what's on the front page of Business Insider right now...

 

So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that, while Trump rails against the media and threatens to change the law to make it easier to sue, there is one publication he’s willing to tolerate.

At the time of writing, of the 47 Twitter accounts followed by @realdonaldtrump, only ONE belongs to a print or online publication. That publication is Business Insider Politics.

Meanwhile, here's BI Politics' most recent Tweet...

Congratulations, Henry. You earned this.

UPDATE: Donald Trump appears to have unfollowed Business Insider (and four other people). Sorry, Henry. :(
