About 43.7 million people around the world follow Donald Trump on Twitter, where he often makes short statements. But occasionally he “retweets” other people's tweets, like the ones he sent out yesterday.
I'll show you the three tweets and their videos, because they have caused such outrage in the UK.
The videos were originally tweeted by Jayda Fransen, of the UK. One said, "VIDEO: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!" Another "VIDEO: Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!"
(I’ve seen that sort of thing with my own eyes, when I was in Iraq.)
The last tweet is the worst: "VIDEO: Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death!"
So Trump retweeted these three videos.
And this caused an earthquake in the UK.
Yes, all three of those videos are shocking — the last is a murder, a true atrocity.
But that’s not what got the entire British political class riled up.
Is the problem really that Jayda Fransen is a member of a fringe political party called Britain First?
No. I’ll tell you what they’re actually trying to do:
They’re sending a message — not to Trump, but to 65 million Brits, especially those on Twitter and Facebook. And the message is this: Don’t you dare talk about Islam. Don’t even show a video that speaks the truth.
The calendar may say 2017, but it’s 1984...
NEXT: For many years, anti-jihad activists Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller have been banned from entering the United Kingdom.
Robert Spencer joins me to explain that a Labour MP is citing this ban in his call to ban President Trump himself from entering the country.
THEN: Sun columnist Candice Malcolm comes on with an update on Maryam Monsef, the Liberal Cabinet minister whose immigration papers still aren't in order (not that Canada's Media Party cares...)
