With the recent terrorist attack in England, the focus from the Trump administration has been on the controversial travel ban. The Supreme Tangerine has taken to Twitter try and make the case. Unfortunately, he isn’t making much headway into anything but showing us just what bad taste looks like.*
But there are a few things about this proposed travel ban I find a little odd. Wasn’t it supposed to be for 90 days so they could ‘review vetting procedures’? It’s now been about 120 days; what the hell have they been doing? I heard a news report saying the judges blocking of the executive order must have extended to the review process, but you’d think they could get something done.
Of course, we all know what Donald Trump has been doing:
I’m not sure how this is supposed to protect us from terrorism. I guess he must know something I don’t.
And my other question is why didn’t Trump just lie about having a credible threat from one of the countries on the ban? This is a man who has lied about the size of his inauguration crowd, electoral victory and penis on national television; you’d think if it was that damn important he’d just make something up.
I’m one of those pinko-commie-liberal snowflake types, but if I were to hear there was a credible threat from one of these countries I’d probably be OK with something like this. If it was to serve some purpose (as the recent ban on laptop computers on airplanes did) it would make sense, but I have the impression that a few racists just sat around a table and asked: “Which of these Muslim countries don’t give us any money?”
I’m a First Amendment nut. Freedom of religion is one of the most important things in the world to me. I find any law that discriminates based on religion completely reprehensible and un-American, but if there’s a credible threat from Somalia we should exercise caution and protect ourselves.
This doesn’t have a damn thing to do with national security. It’s all about posturing.
I can’t believe more people don’t see it. I don’t believe Donald Trump wants the world to be a safe place. I think he loves these terrorist attacks. You know why? He wants everyone to be scared and then tell them he’s the only one who can protect them.
His message from the beginning has been ‘Trust me. I’ll protect you.’
And you know what? That’s the biggest lie he’s ever told.
