Trump calls Globe ‘stupid, worthless’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump derided The Boston Globe as ‘‘stupid’’ and ‘‘worthless’’ in response to a satirical front page printed by the newspaper Sunday that lampoons a potential Trump presidency.

The fake front page, which was inside the paper as part of its editorial Ideas section, is dated April 9, 2017, and its main story is about Trump calling for deportations. Another article mentions work being halted on a wall at the Mexico border.

There’s also a short item about backlash Trump received after tweeting a photo of his new dog he named ‘‘Madame Peng,’’ after China’s first lady Peng Liyuan.

In an accompanying editorial, the Globe calls the satire ‘‘an exercise in taking a man at his word.’’

Speaking on the campaign trail in Rochester, N.Y., on Sunday, Trump called the satirical feature ‘‘totally dishonest.”
