A man-bunned protester prompted hair commentary from the president. President Donald Trump, he of the uncategorizable hairstyle, has called out a protester because of the man's hair. At a rally in Duluth, Minnesota, Wednesday night, Trump's speech was interrupted by a protester carrying a sign, who happened to have his hair in a bun. After first exhorting his security staff to "get him out of here," Trump then said, with sneering contempt, "Was he a man or a woman, because he needs a haircut more than I do ... couldn't tell, couldn't tell." He also said, "Go... [Read More]

George W. Bush was a terrible president. He fumbled everything from Katrina to Iraq to the economy.

Well, maybe not. It... [Read More]
