We should start a category called "Today's Stupid Headlines"

Here are a few examples :

from usatoday front page

Charges for mishandling classified documents are rare. What that means for Trump.


Ya, they're rare because we never had such a huge criminal in the white house - other than nixon, and at least he didn't take classified docs.

You can't not 'believe' in abortion. Here's why


Abortion is not a belief system you moron headline writer. Only rightwing nutjobs that use religion to control our bodies are guilty of using beliefs.

Americans are running out of money as prices, inflation soars.


Not all Americans, just the hard-working class that have been ripped off by our system for decades.


On to the next stupid newspapers.

The headline makes the point that Trump is an unprecedentedly unpresidential individual, and that the rarity of the crime emphasizes it's severity.

In the "Americans are running out of money" headline, the headline assumes (as do most liberals) that "the hard-working class" are the "real Americans."

I'm sure if you can look round a little you can find some better headlines to pick on.

To be truthful it should read, Presidents don't normally do something this illegal.
