Just keepin’ it real: in America, you are ten times more likely to be shot by an armed toddler than by an illegal Islamic jihadist immigrant.
At 4:42 P.M. yesterday, your president signed one of his beloved executive orders. This one prevented all refugees from entering the U.S. for 120 days, barred Syrian refugees indefinitely, and blocked entry into the United States for 90 days for citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Green card holders from those countries would also be denied re-entry pending a case-by-case review.
At international airports, hundreds of people who had unknowingly boarded their planes hours earlier were denied entry to the U.S. on landing. Families were separated, people with legitimate and important business we’re placed in custody. Demonstrations erupted and lawsuits were filed. The Department of Home Security issued statements. Judges issued temporary rulings. No one really understands what it all means at this point.
Well done, man-baby. Your insatiable desire to be the center of attention and to see your name on every media outlet all day every day has been satiated for a couple of hours. You have given the giant snow-globe we all now live in a vigorous shake, and you can rest for a while while others float about and try to regain control of their lives.
Chaos, the essential ichor without which the man-baby cannot function, is abundant for now. How, exactly, making everyone in the world hate us more every day will result in increased safety for Americans at home and abroad is anyone’s guess.
Watching the coverage on MSNBC, one got the idea that there might be riots in the streets and that perhaps impeachment was possible by the end of the day. If you flipped over to FoxNews, however, you would be unaware of the crises – they just weren’t covering it.
In any case, the president will do what he wants. Those closest to him know him to be an honorable, wise, intelligent, prudent guardian of American values. They love him unconditionally, and trust him to do what’s best for all of us. If you doubt it, just watch this short clip to glimpse the devotion.
