Muslims Tweet Their Revenge On Trump And It’s Hysterical

Donald Trump was asked a question about Islamophobia during Sunday night’s debate. His response earned him a surprise: Muslims tweet. Not only do they tweet, they’re a pretty funny lot.

The question came from a Muslim-American voter in the audience. She asked:

With Islamophobia on the rise, how will you help people like me deal with the consequences of being labeled a threat to the country after the election is over?

That was a straightforward question. The young woman didn’t get a straightforward answer. Trump turned the question back onto Muslims, saying:

Muslims have to report the problems when they see them. And you know, there’s always a reason for everything. If they don’t do that, it’s a very difficult situation for our country because you look at Orlando and you look at San Bernardino and the World Trade Center.

His answer promptly spawned the hashtag #MuslimsReportStuff, which flew around the globe. It may be to Trump’s eternal regret that Muslims tweet; they’ve made him even more of a laughing stock than he already was.

The deluge was set off  during the debate by Moustafa Bayoumi, an associate professor at Brooklyn College:

And was picked up immediately by others who were quick to pick up on a prime opportunity:

With a different twist, in language Trump can understand:

If the man-with-orange-hair was expecting a mea culpa from Muslim-American voters, maybe this will do:

Or this?

The hilarity spread to poking fun at fearful America:

The emphasis went as far to the ridiculous as it needed to in order to show what an idiot the GOP is running for president:

But at least one young woman was entirely serious in what she reported. She said:

I am bullied and harassed by Trump supporters EVERY DAY.

I’m not posting the actual tweet because she asked that if people retweet her, to please defend her against Trump supporters. I’m not sure any of us know how to adequately do that. She received a lot of supportive messages, but said that, if she reported every threatening one that she gets, it would be a full-time job.

There’s plenty about Donald Trump to laugh at but, at the core, we need to remember — it’s his dangerous behavior that threatens the American way of life.
