New York Times columnist Gail Collins is “frumpy” and “irrelevant” according to premium necktie designer Donald Trump.

“How does frumpy and little-read NYTimes editorial writer Gail Collins keep her job?” Trump tweeted Thursday. “She is totally irrelevant!”

Trump says he may run for governor of New York but only if all Republicans vow to support him and no other candidate.
