Sorry, were you trying to use a tragic world event as an excuse to say something hateful about Muslims? I thought I heard a murmur, but then it was entirely drowned out by the majesty of Republican Muslim Coalition president Saba Ahmed’s American flag hijab.
On yesterday’s Kelly File, Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson tried to argue that mosques are hotbeds of terrorist activity, and that’s why her boss would consider shutting them down in the wake of the Paris attacks. So Ahmed, blessed with the patience of a million kindergarten teachers, was forced to show Pierson what’s what.
“Megyn, we go to the mosque to pray,” she said. “It’s absolutely horrifying to hear that our constitutional rights of free exercise of religion are going to be challenged just because somebody thinks that there may be some attendees who may disagree with your views. You wouldn’t shut down churches just because there were one or two Christians who were acting badly. The mosque has nothing to do with the terrorists. Yes there are people who misuse the religion for their perverted ideology but that has nothing to do with my faith.”
Owned! Though really, that hijab said it all.
