What One Muslim Woman Thinks about ``The Donald''

Donald Trump Sends a Chill Through My Muslim-American Body

By Saqib Bhatti for In These Times magazine ( April 2016 edition, Back page and Page 59)

(An Excerpt)

``The Huffington Post adds a disclaimer to nearly all of the articles it publishes about Donald Trump.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther & bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims – 1.6 billion members of an entire religion – from entering the U.S.

As an American Muslim, I deeply appreciate that disclaimer. Trump thrives on media attention. His entire campaign is based on saying outlandish things that will get him free press coverage, and this disclaimer helps contextualize any coverage the Huffington Post gives him.’’
