Rep. Ted Lieu hits back hard.
Former Dep. Assistant to President Trump and Fox News flunkie, Sebastian Gorka, steps in for the block.
Such a bloody moron.— Sebastian Gorka DrG (@SebGorka) May 3, 2019
There was no “religion test” associated with the travel ban which was predicated on President Obama’s threat assessment and upheld by the Supreme Court.
But we already knew @tedlieu hates our Constitution and the rights it protects:https://t.co/FyefJvZbpK https://t.co/UydjAJ6jXP
Rep. Ted Lieu for the rebound.
Dear @SebGorka: Thanks for reading my tweets. You may also want to read the words of the person who fired you.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) May 3, 2019
Dec. 7, 2015: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States ….”
I believe Trump. Do you?#ThursdayThoughts https://t.co/SuHzdXSURX
The Internet is forever. History sides with Ted.
“Why Franklin Graham says Donald Trump is right about stopping Muslim immigration” https://t.co/iVPJcDQLeO— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2015
Calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. are offensive and unconstitutional.— Governor Mike Pence (@GovPenceIN) December 8, 2015
Twitter weighed in too.
He campaigned on a Muslim ban. This is so well documented that I’m not even gonna bother with links – just scroll your replies.— Dale Henry Geist (@dalehenrygeist) May 3, 2019
The only person who hates our Constitution is @realDonaldTrump and possibly you. A Muslim ban is a policy targeting one group of people on the basis of religion. It really was and is that simple. Shame on you for trying to gaslight Americans.— Terry Berger (@MrsTLBerger) May 3, 2019
Was a literal ban on Muslims (or at least it attempted to be before courts limited it).— MN (@jetswin15) May 3, 2019

Team Trump claims there is no religious ban in their policies. Well, as long as your not Muslim.— mcobbski (@57c43f53427b43e) May 3, 2019
Yes this is being litigated in social media again.
As the evidence shows, and even Rudy Giuliani explains in the video above, the only reason it wasn’t technically a Muslim ban is because that would be illegal. They carefully drafted the wording of the Executive Order in a way to get the intended ban through the courts. In fact it was rejected a few times and had to be even further trimmed down in order to get signed off on.
Make no mistake President Trump’s actual intent was and has always been to ban Muslims. Of that there can be no dispute.
To be honest I have no idea what Mike Pence is even trying to say because that statement flies in the face of pretty much everything we’ve seen come out of President Trump’s mouth.
But don’t take my word for it let’s see what Senator Lindsey Graham has to say.
