6 Crazy Things Donald Trump Says That Are Absolutely Right

6 Crazy Things Donald Trump Says That Are Absolutely Right

Skewed News — Donald Trump has surged to the top of the Republican heap by saying outrageous things, issuing over-the-top insults, and making ridiculous proposals. Some of his utterances, like his sexist remarks about Carly Fiorina’s looks, are offensive.

In Defense of Donald Trump’s Namecalling

In Defense of Donald Trump’s Namecalling

Skewed News — Donald Trump likes to call people “stupid.” And/or “loser.” Obviously, it’s juvenile. Also obviously, Republican primary voters are into it.

The United States Military is Making the World Safe for Rapists

Skewed News — By any objective standard, Sunday’s story about American military policy on bases in U.S.-occupied Afghanistan is so shocking that it ought to blow everything else — Donald Trump, the Pope’s visit, everything — off the front pages and top-of-the-hour broadcast ledes. Because it points the finger at imperialist America’s sainted military class, however, even the fact that […]
