Evil and stupid

I haven’t had to use the “evil or stupid” formulation in a while, since it has been a long time since Republicans were driving policy in this regard. But, I can unequivocally claim that Trump’s Muslim refugee order is very evil and very stupid. Obviously, this is horribly inhumane. And it is just stupid is that completely feeds right into the hands of ISIS, etc., who try and convince other Muslims that the US is anti-Muslim (surely, it helps them when we actually are). Some of my favorite tweets on the matter:
The Republican cowards just kill me.
And, literally damn the Christians who think this comports with their Christianity.
You know, I have no idea whether Trump’s personal conflict of interests drove this. But neither does anybody so long as he won’t release his tax returns or properly extricate from his businesses.
“Foreigners from those seven nations have killed zero Americans in terrorist attacks on U.S. soil between 1975 and the end of 2015,” Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute, wrote on the group’s website.
Phew. That’s enough for now.
