An ignorant Trump enthusiast got absolutely destroyed on Twitter when he humiliated himself with a tweet that was not only discriminatory, but factually incorrect.
Boy did Twitter notice. Steve Hirsch, a self proclaimed nationalist and major pro-Trump supporter showed his support for the #MuslimBan and attached photos of the two perpetrators of the 2015 San Bernardino shootings.
Steve’s tweet read:
With a #MuslimBan, the San Bernardino shooting would have never happened and 14 people would still be alive. Thank you #PresidentTrump!

The public were quick to point out Steve’s error because neither of the people in his tweet would have been banned according to Trump’s Muslim ban.
Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik were the couple who targeted a San Bernardino County Department of Public Health event with about 80 employees.
Farook was American-born, whilst Malik was from Pakistan – neither of them would be banned according to Trump’s rules.
On top of that there’s the obvious issue with complete ignorance and discrimination against an entire religion…
@Stevenwhirsch99 so many Native Americans would still be alive if white Christians didn't come to America

Why don’t people mention the Native American argument more often?
He got told there…
@Stevenwhirsch99 your vision is as narrow as your mind

There it is…the winning question. Why is America banning Muslims but not guns?! Outrageous.

Ah the irony that Steve’s cover photo is a gun on top of a bible…
Giving a bit of perspective…
@jciamcur1 This is such a stupid post. The whole religion of Islam is not trying to take over the entire USA. Stop discriminating!

Who’s the real enemy?
@Stevenwhirsch99 Americans kill more Americans than any Muslim extremist

A great point, well made.
@Stevenwhirsch99 and with a ban on assault riffle thousands would be alive today. thank you

They were both American citizens…
@Stevenwhirsch99 Both shooters were American citizens. Wanna start deporting your own people just because they worship differently?

Andz reckons the ban is tailored to where Trump has businesses…
@Stevenwhirsch99 He was an US born muslim and she was from Pakistan and Saudi Arabia…both are not in ban coz they have Trump businesses.

Just in case Steve didn’t clock on, Robert Lawson is here to hammer the point home…
There were so many other responses to Steve’s tweet and it got over 3k likes and 1.7k retweets.
Maybe he’ll check his facts so his discriminatory tweets are at the very least correct next time…
