Twitter weighed in too.

Thoughts

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.
