THE THREAT IS REAL

Sarah Huckabee Sanders says fake shmake, who cares, the point is, Mooslims are A THREAT and that’s what Trump was saying when he retweeted three grotesque videos on the theme of LOOK OUT MOOSLIMS LOOK OUT THEY WILL EAT US ALL.

The White House has defended the unverified, Islamophobic videos that Donald Trump shared as driving home an important point – regardless of if they are real or not.

“Whether it’s a real video, the threat is real,” Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. “His goal is to promote strong border security and strong national security.”

What threat is very real? That Mooslims will grab all the statues of “the Virgin Mary” and smash them before our disbelieving eyes? Is that the threat? It doesn’t seem very scary, or very likely, either.

Or is something else the threat? But if something else is the threat then what good is it to post videos that are nothing to do with the threat, especially if they’re fake and they work up hatred against a set of people?

Ms Sanders, however, maintained that the videos did not need to be verified, claiming the media was focusing on “the wrong thing”.

“I’m not talking about the nature of the video,” she said. “…The threat is real, what the President is talking about – the need for national security and military spending – those are very real things, there’s nothing fake about that.”

But the videos have nothing to do with that, plus they’re fake, so wtf?

Of Mr Trump’s retweets, Downing Street said: “It is wrong for the President to have done this.”

Mr Trump’s previously scheduled state visit will continue as planned.

Why?
