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.

Really getting out there.
