This idiotic family immigrated to the U.S. from Syria 20 years ago, and yet voted for Donald Trump — in Pennsylvania.
How they were not turned off by his malicious comments about immigration, Muslims (they're Christians, so maybe they don't care?) and about turning away Syrian refugees, I will never know. But rather than being turned off, they went out of their way to vote for the man, even as they were buying a home and furnishing it for their relatives who were on the cusp of immigrating to the U.S. after a 13-year (!) process.
When Trump signed his executive order, their family was mid-air. They landed, had their visas revoked and were sent right back to Damascus.
Now, the matriarch is asking — with a straight face — of Trump:
Why? Where is your human side, to send somebody to a war zone? I understand he wants to make America safe, we're all on with this. I definitely want to be in a safe place, but people need us and we need to be there for them.
Too bad, so sad. It's not like they were tricked; rather, they, like so many Republican voters, seem to operate from a place of, “As long as I get by, as long as I get away with it, fuck the rest of you.”
Well, fuck you, this time, it turns out.
