On Monday, Gawker published Donald Trump’s cellphone number and urged readers to call the current GOP front-runner and ask him about "his important ideas." It was a clever stunt that came in response to Trump pulling a similar prank on Lindsey Graham earlier this summer. The New York Times went as far as to declare that “Trump was trumped” by Gawker.
No one, though, out-Trumps Trump—a fact the billionaire businessman proved yet again on Tuesday:
Thank you @gawker! Call me on my cellphone 917.756.8000 and listen to my campaign message.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 4, 2015
That’s the same number that Gawker published. (I got a busy signal when I gave it a ring this afternoon, FWIW.)
