UNBELIEVABLE! Trump’s White House press secretary Sean Spicer just told reporters that the recent terror attack in a Quebec mosque that killed five praying Muslims and injured eight others is “a terrible reminder of why we must remain vigilant, and why the President is taking steps to be proactive.”
So let me get this straight. A terror attack against innocent Muslims by a white, Christian Trump supporter is proof that we need to ban Muslims from entering the United States? America, we have entered the Twilight Zone. Even in a world of Trump’s “alternative facts,” this ridiculous statement takes the cake for being one of the most illogical, insane things ever uttered from the White House.
Instead of pausing to reflect on how Trump’s own campaign rhetoric may have inspired Alexander Bissonnette, (the Islamophobic Quebec shooter who “likes” Trump on Facebook and is an ardent follower of Trump’s French ally Marine Le Pen,) to slaughter innocent Muslims during a prayer service, the White House is doing logic somersaults to blame — you guessed it — Muslims. Can we impeach Trump already??
