Twitter Was Lit for the #TrumpIsDisqualifiedParty

On Monday night, Republican hopeful Donald Trump released a statement calling for the preclusion of all Muslims setting foot in the United States.
“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” the press release reported.
On Tuesday morning, White House spokesperson Josh Earnest announced that Trump’s statement disqualified him from running for President, sparking the hashtag #Trumpisdisqualifiedparty.
Twitter was flooded with Tweets celebrating, albeit prematurely, the demise of the billionaire-turned-presidential hopeful’s candidacy.
Users were later disappointed to learn that Trump’s comments could not legally or literally disqualify him from the running.
Earnest’s statement was intended to convey that Trump’s remarks should nix his contest for office, rather than citing the actual collapse of his campaign, which has, from the very start, been riddled with fear-mongering and race-baiting tactics.

  • It would have mattered more if the news-item also have included the thing that Mr. Trump popularity ratings or approval goes down the hill after his comment but, that wasn’t mentioned. Maybe, something is amiss in all this.

    • That’s because Trump’s popularity did not go down, because most people in the US agree that a temporary ban for the safety of American’s is the prudent course of action.

      • Unfortunately, that would go against the interest of the article that the writer above was trying to convey. Which leaves the question intact whether criticizing Mr. Trump is right or wrong move; the message it clearly sends is, it’s right for Muslims to criticize Mr. Trump while for the general American public who’s supporting Mr. Trump in his popularity soaring higher, things are different.

        • Criticizing Trump is an ignorant move. Islam does not allow free speech, but here in the US we take our right to free speech very seriously. Trump is not going to be disqualified from running for the presidency for putting forth a valid suggestion for keeping America safe, no matter how many muslim’s are butt hurt. Perhaps energy should be spent critizing the terror attacks in the name of allah.

          • Well, it’s often an ironical situation when we see the ‘Defenders of faith’ didn’t find time to take up the task of taking on the ‘Offenders of the same faith’. Maybe, the defenders of faith, energy is all spent on taking up the defense of the faith itself.

  • “White House spokesperson Josh Earnest announced that Trump’s statement disqualified him from running for President…”
    On the contrary Trump’s anti Muslim stance is his strongest and most American qualification. Josh needs to go out a bit.
    Having bartered away America’s much wonted high moral ground for a bit of political edge, in my opinion, if he ever gets elected…given his bankruptcy escapism he will barter away a whole lot more. He will get the real meaning of “The Buck Stops Here”.
    America will find that, aside from his braggadocio, he is the ultimate moral and physical coward and a fuzzy thinker. Putin will take him. China will buy him if the Arabs don’t do it first.

  • It is not always a matter of what is legally possible, but what matters most to American patriots is whether a candidate is morally acceptable.
    Clearly Trump shows time and time agains that he is nothing more than a ‘mouth on a stick.’
    He is an opinionated schmuck that is only supported by redneck and amoral Americans. Sadly there are a few. He is a long way behind Clinton, and will remain so because no one needs a loud-mouthed bigot ed braggart as POTUS.
    Trump will fall, as Palin fell, and for similar reasobns, and decent Americans will make sure he does.
    Non-decent Americans will then spend four years weeping, wailing, and gnashing their teeth just as McCain supporters do when Barack won the hearts and minds of the American people.
