Today we have this whopper from Julia Ioffe, the woman who wrote the GQ profile on Donald Trump‘s wife, Melania. The story royally pissed off the Trumps with Melania calling it “dishonest and inaccurate.”

This one might as well.



Ioffe is a contributing writer at Politico Magazine, Highline and a columnist at Foreign Policy. She is formerly with The New Republic.

The point is, she added, “More than one thing can be true at the same time.”

Hmmm…sort of like Ioffe can be a good writer, but also blatantly biased at the same time?

She also had a question: “What happens on the right if Mateen really was motivated by his tortured sexuality and not his religion?”

Comparing a terrorist to a right-wing religious politician or reporter is a little out there, but welcome to the 2016 presidential election.

Good thing she’s got that rainbow flag flying in her Twitter account — Ioffe’s nothing but open-minded and inclusive.

Update/Correction: Politico‘s public relations department wanted a correction on calling Julia Ioffe a “reporter” in the headline. The change has been made above. She’s a “contributor.” But yes, she does report for Politico.
