Is it a Muslim ban?

If you watch, listen and read only conservative news, you are being told this latest executive order from President Trump isn't a Muslim ban, and it's very similar to something Obama did in 2011. Of course, if you scratch below the surface on that Obama angle, it's bullshit.

And as for whether or not it's a Muslim ban, check out the words of Rudy Giuliani:
Former New York mayor Rudy W. Giuliani said President Trump wanted a “Muslim ban” and requested he assemble a commission to show him “the right way to do it legally.”
It's a Muslim ban. Plain and simple.

There's a reason why thousands were protesting this at airports around the country, including people I know. It's not because George Soros is paying them. Believe that at your own peril, conservatives. Liberals believed that the Koch Brothers were behind all the Tea Party rallies. They were wrong too.

It remains to be seen if liberals are able to convert this passion into an effective anti-Trump, pro-democratic movement. But the passion is real. The tiger has been poked.
