Trump supporter tells NPR: ‘If a Muslim woman moves here, she needs to leave her towel home’

Published

Two brothers who support President Donald Trump argued over the weekend that the president was right to place a ban on travel from seven majority-Muslim countries because Jesus Christ is “the reason this country is here and safe today.”

In an interview with NPR that was published on Sunday, brothers Tim and Bill Jackson of Elizabethtown, New York called on Americans to give the president a chance.

“You know, I mean, everybody [is saying] he’s signed this, he’s signed that,” Tim opined. “It’s only been a week.”

“I’m sick of people who just stand by,” brother Bill agreed. “Now that someone’s gone in there and stirred the waters up, boy them Democrats are pissed. They’re trying to come up with every way they can to push him down.”

The brothers also linked Trump’s travel ban directly to Christianity.

“I feel that if a Muslim woman wants to move into this country, she needs to leave her towel home,” Bill explained. “Because the reason this country is here and safe today is because of Jesus Christ.”

He continued: “We were one nation under God. The Muslims are into Allah. They can’t live there [in their home countries] anymore because of all the turmoil and unrest. Here we still have somewhat peace. So if you’re going to come here to enjoy this peace, follow our rules and be one nation under God. Or stay home. I’m not making you change your religion, or whatever you want to call it, your belief. But if you want this, what we want, then you got to do what we’re doing to get it.”

Bill also disagreed with the notion that the Constitution gives Americans the right to worship the god of their choice.

“That is something I believe that has come along with political correctness and all this other garbage,” he insisted.

"Abuse of power is not a crime," the nation's former top law enforcement office argued.

Joe Biden apologizes for ‘partisan lynching’ comments about Bill Clinton’s impeachment

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday apologized for comments he made saying impeachment could be viewed as a "partisan lynching."

The comments from a 1998 interview were reported after Biden said it was "abhorrent" and "despicable" for President Donald Trump to refer to impeachment as a lynching.

"Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense," Biden said in 1998.
