News@noon: Calling out Donald Trump; Wings return home

The Detroit News

Today is Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016, and if you're in Dearborn anytime between now and the election, you might notice a curious billboard written mostly in Arabic but clearly naming Donald Trump.

The Chicago-based Nuisance Committee, which was founded by the creators of the Cards Against Humanity Game, recently placed the anti-Donald Trump billboard along westbound Interstate 94 near Dearborn. The sign reads: “Donald Trump, he can’t read this, but he is scared of it anyway."

A billboard at Interstate 94 near the Detroit-Dearborn border reads, in Arabic: “Donald Trump, he can’t read this, but he is scared of it anyway.”

It's not the only tongue-in-cheek billboard these folks are putting up ahead of the election.

Here's what else is in the news today:
