Misleading and Distasteful

Abby Zimet

In his ever-more quixotic quest to protect his stupid golf course, the ludicrous blowhard known as Trump is still fighting wind farms in Scotland and, happily, still losing. Scotland's Advertising Standards Authority, a watchdog agency, has banned Trump anti-wind ads that it ruled used "misleading" imagery, made "unsubstantiated" claims, and were otherwise "distasteful," much like their creator. One ad showed a cluttered scene in California and warned "the beauty of your country is in jeopardy!" while another inexplicably linked an anti-Trump minister with the release of the Lockerbie bomber. Really getting out there.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
