Trump Retweets Highly Offensive Images Of Pelosi and Schumer In Muslim Garb

President Donald Trump is being widely and legitimately denounced today for a highly offensive image that retweeted of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in Muslim garb, including a statement that Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt that the image is “repulsive anti-Muslim bigotry.” I have repeatedly objected to outrageous and unpresidential tweets by President Trump and I believe it is important for all of us to object to this type of offensive imagery and commentary. It has no place in our politics and certainly no place in presidential communications.

The Monday morning by Twitter user @D0wn_Under was shared by Trump with his 71 million followers with hours with the caption: “The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue.”

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham caused a secondary flare up when she defended the President by accusing the Democrats of “almost taking the side of terrorists.” That is grossly unfair to the Democrats and magnifies the concerns over the use of such images and insults in addressing your political opponents.

There has to be some modicum of decency and decorum in our politic debates that starts with the President. While some may find this image comical, it is highly insulting, highly inflammatory and highly unfair. It appeals to the lowest common denominator in our politics and fuels racial and religious divisions. We have a right to expect more from the White House.

  1. It is unpresidential for sure but I fail to see how it becomes anti Muslim or anti Arab. If anything, it is anti Iranian. When Pelosi abdicates her role as Speaker and spits out in the most hateful tones that Trump is “impeached forever” she reveals a level of personal antipathy far more unbecoming that this juvenile retweet. She clearly used the somber process of impeachment to pursue a personal vendetta.

  2. While I generally really like Mr. Turley’s perspective on current issue’s, this falls a little flat when he seems to ignore the repugnant comments from actual house & even Senate democrats toward Mr Trump on a regular basis & yet he us supposed to “ be the bigger person” somehow?
    Poppycock, he is the 1st Pres in history to throw this stuff back with the kind of force he displays.

  3. hysterical these two are pledging their troth to Iran. those that dont like that trump commented are also pledging to iran also

  4. JT gets it right with this:

      It apparently appeals to a good number of those who post frequent comments to your blog, as well.

    1. Bill Clinton was delightful, attractive and always observant of protocol.

      Wait. What about the lies and cover-up of the TWA Flight 800 debacle?

      Bill Clinton and the Deep Deep State did not want the facts of the accidental downing by the Navy of TWA Flight 800 within 90 days of the 1996 election.

      Bill Clinton paid off the CIA and Boeing as he defrauded voters and manipulated a Presidential election.

      Bill Clinton colluded with Deep Deep State actors and agents to suppress his criminal interference in an election.

      That was not disgusting and most certainly presidential, right?

  6. If the election was held today with the front runner, Bernie, and the President, my guess is you would vote for a socialist future for us. When history tells the entire story, I believe you will find yourself misinformed despite your educational status.

    1. I disagree. Trump did not create this but only retweeted,and lets face it, they deserve it because to me the dems have agreed with the side opposite the President always. I am ok with this.

    1. It’s the enemy, stupid!

      PCS, the Quran requires Muslims to convert or kill infidels. When the Imams call for it, Muslims will commence war with America. The Constitution provides for freedom of religion, not freedom of invasion and conquest by direct and mortal enemies. Additionally, Sharia Law nullifies and abrogates the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

      American Freedom of Religion merely removed the dominion of the Catholic Church among Christians. It didn’t gift America to unassimilable foreign religions and enemies.

    2. Paul: I’m still trying to figure out how Trump’s tweet ‘fuels racial divisions.’ Silly me, I had no idea that Islam is a race! 🤔

        1. Time to open the cellar doors for some fresh air, Pauline, and maybe some nice celery sticks instead of Cheetos. It’s never to late to start living.

  7. Americans loved it. Terrorists in the US House (they call themselves Democrats) have called him Orange Man for years, and Pelosi went batshiit crazy on Sunday news shows stating with pleasure “he will be impeached forever”

    So frankly they had it coming. Its hysterical.

    1. I’ll believe Democrats aren’t supporting terrorists when they applaud President Trump’s legitimate defense of this country & support the freedom-fighting protesters in Iran loud and clear.

  8. Resolved: Turley is for free speech except for offensive speech

    Sorry Darren: truly is sucks to be you as moderator. Hopefully Turley pays you as much as a Member of Congress
