Four Weeks In

Number 27 of a series

The drip goes on. Daniel Dale, with the Washington bureau of The Star, compiled a list of 80 fabrications by the Snowflake-in-Chief, all during the first four weeks of the new administration. Here is number 27:

27. Jan. 29, 2017 — Facebook statement on travel ban affecting seven predominantly Muslim countries

The claim: “My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.”

In fact: Trump is wrong that Obama “banned” Iraqi refugees. After two Iraqi refugees were arrested on terrorism charges, Obama increased scrutiny of new refugee applicants, slowing down the process significantly, but did not ban Iraqis entirely or ban all new refugees. Iraqi refugees were admitted to the U.S. in every month of 2011, government figures show, and 9,388 were admitted in total in 2011.

La de da de da, indeed! How long can he keep this up? Better yet, how long am I going to keep this up?

Until there is no skin left.
