'Nuisance Committee' Trolls Donald Trump with Arabic Billboard

Oct 18, 2016

A billboard reading 'Donald Trump can’t read this, but he is scared of it' in white Arabic text on a black background has appeared along a highway in Michigan, mocking the Republican presidential candidate's rhetoric on Muslims and Islam.

The sign, placed along Interstate 94 in Dearborn, was arranged and paid for by the Nuisance Committee, a political action campaign group set up by the people behind the popular party game Cards Against Humanity, with the mission to 'annoy Donald Trump."

Melissa Harris, a spokesperson for the group, told WWJ Newsradio 950 that her group chose Dearborn because of its large Arab-American population. “We intentionally did not put the translation on the board,” she said. “I like the idea of people who do not speak Arabic having to ask their friends who do... to translate the board for them.”

Harris added that the group hopes to motivate the Arab-American community to vote in the upcoming election, particularly in Michigan which is a swing state. “We’re not name-calling, we’re not insulting…We’re simply pointing out that his fear, Donald Trump’s fear of Muslims and of immigrants is wholly irrational,” she said.
