    I can't imagine the level of stupidity it takes to think this was a good idea

    Was free I when clicked on it from my phone.

    I think they give you so many free articles per month.

    The link works for me. Might want to clear your cookies for WaPo.

    If you can't get in, just imagine the typical WaPo opinion piece composed of mostly wishful thinking.

    Trump retweets a (pretty funny) video of him hitting a golf ball that hits Hillary in the back, causing her to trip and fall into a plane. Instead of treating it for what it is - stupid internet humor - CNN takes this (not all that surprising) position:

    "... the retweet follows a pattern of behavior in which Trump has either seemed to find it acceptable to joke about violence against women and those he disagrees with, or to make not-so-subtle comments that seem to incite it."

    Yet CNN is perfectly fine with Hillary's characterization of Trump as being "a clear and present danger" which is a term used to mean someone who needs to be immediately eliminated with prejudice.

    Had the retweet been a video of Trump hitting a golf ball that hits an old, white, conservative male like Gingrich; it would have gone unreported.

    The Minneapolis StarTribune ran an article Sunday on a local GOP State Rep running for Governor. The piece mentions President Trump (not by name) with no real connection to the article. No mention of an endorsement of the candidate, just another cheap shot.

    Kind of a cheap shot, but I can also see the contrasting GOP personalities between Trump and Dean.

    Now, on the other hand, a completely unnecessary article contrasting the two personalities is kind of a cheap shot in and of itself. It's really non-news, but the reporter for some reason found the difference so startling that he had to write about it.

    Its an on going thing with this newspaper in particular and the MSM in general. A Mexican kid on a bike gets hit by an suv and Trump gets mentioned because he hates Mexicans and is anti-environment. A few weeks ago a reporter on the NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt did a piece that referred to Trump only as POTUS. She said POTUS. Not President Of The United States. Not the President. Not Trump. And of course not President Trump. What's that all about? I suppose the POTUS reference is better than saying WFB (white fascist bigot)
