Flipping Off the Press

Heartburn has to be the least of the symptoms experienced by the lefties at Politico, after writing the subhead to this story:
Montana's Special Election: 5 Takeaways
Donald Trump was an asset, not a drag.
Wrestling a snotty reporter to the ground didn't hurt, either.
If nothing else, the Republican's win demonstrates that a candidate’s hostility toward the media is no deal-breaker for voters -- and it might even be helpful.

Eyeing a reporter’s press badge skeptically just after polls closed, one attendee explained, “We’re looking for the right press to flip off.” 
"Differential voter motivation" supposedly benefitting those outraged by Trump appears not to have been operational in MT. Consider this: maybe Trump is only unpopular in places that didn't vote for him.
