For a moment, I thought I was reading about a NEWS PAPER, but realized immediately that noone at this publication knows the first thing about NEWS.
It is deeply troubling to me that this type of 'satire' aimed only at one occupant of the White House, is allowed to exist.
This publication deserves to expire. Shame on you.

It was perfectly permisable to make fun of the PREVIOUS President(s) but we can't make any 'political satires' against THIS President because of his racial make up. Can we make 'political satire' of his WHITE side?
