Trump Spokesperson: So What. They’re Muslim. 4

A spokesperson for the Donald Trump campaign recently defended the candidate’s position on banning muslim immigrants. Poorly. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"While defending Donald Trump's proposed ban on Muslims visiting the United States during a debate with CNN's S.E. Cupp, Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson dismissed Cupp's assertion that a ban on all Muslims goes too far.

Pierson told CNN that Trump's plan is "nothing new" because U.S. law already prevents individuals from nations hostile to the U.S. from entering the country. Cupp disagreed.

"There really is something new to the idea of banning an entire religious group from entering the country," Cupp said in response. "Peddling this unconservative, un-American, unconstitutional garbage has got to stop.””*

Stuff like this really exposes something about bigots.

They think we all hate the same people they do and are just being polite and nice and "politically correct" and that they are the brave ones who actually say it out loud.

"So what. They are Muslims."

Because deep down she thinks we all actually agree with her.

"So what. They're Muslim" is probably the most astoundingly stupid statement of any campaign spokesperson ever uttered. Yeah, Trump surrounds himself with competent people, just like he would in office. NOT!

Watching videos like this completely depresses me, as it reminds me that almost everyone in the world hates one another, regardless of race, religion, belief, or culture. I mean, just what is wrong with all of us?
