Thoughts on the Refugee Program Suspension

So if you have been thinking that Donald Trump would still rather be a reality TV star than the President of the United States, odds are you’re probably right. Last week, Trump low key attempted to ban travelers from 7 countries, such as, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and Yemen from entering America. As if that wasn’t enough, he also tried banning all Syrian refugees (counting the ones who were ON the planes to the United States when the executive order was signed- talk about a “heads up”). However, it seems that, like the popular vote said about his presidency (if we can even call it that), people aren’t quite on board with that idea.

Protests arose almost immediately at airports across the US where various banned citizens with VALID documentation were being held (nothing says “Welcome to America” more than detention, huh?) This concept of people voluntarily going to the airport on their own time just goes to show how distasteful this order presented itself. Like Donald’s marriages though, this ban was short lived. The following day, a New York judge granted an emergency stay, halting the deportation of those being detained.

In other news, Canada has offered to take refugees turned away by President Trump.The poor immigrants detained from America and deported by the so called “stale Cheeto” in the White House now have the chance to have Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as their leader (he’s much better looking anyways) as he has accepted those displaced by Trump’s idiocy.

Budweiser has released their Super Bowl Commercial, “Born The Hard Way”, which demonstrates an awe inspiring backlash of their disapproval with “Tiny Hands” ruling.   ...I mean so, who’s suprised that Trump hasn’t tweeted about this yet?

Budweiser is not the only backlash that Trump’s executive order has received. Ellen Degeneres, aka the reason people still do nice things in America, took to her talk show to explain the irony of Trump’s banning of Muslims and the screening of Finding Dory in the White House the following day. Ellen decided to teach the new President a few things- using her film which Mr. President decided to watch Saturday evening. Ellen makes it a point to say that she hardly gets political and she doesn’t plan on it, but you interpret this the way you see fit. She begins with saying “Of course, Finding Dory is about a fish named Dory and Dory lives in Australia… and her parents live in America.” (It makes you begin to think if Trump was asking for this… literally, it's like perfect timing.) But just when you think Ellen couldn’t get better, she mentions “Dory arrives in America with her friends, Marlin and Nemo, and she ends up at the Marine Life Institute behind a large wall, and they all have to get over the wall. You won’t believe it, but that wall has almost no effect in keeping them out.” And to finish, Ellen adds while talking about Dory’s friends that “they help her even though they’re completely different colors because that’s what you do when you see someone in need: you help them.” Watch it here:


Even more celebrities and news networks took to the media to portray their disapproval. My favorites listed below:

1. James Corden (let’s be honest, who doesn’t love this man?) Unfortunately, this is not a Carpool Karaoke video (although that would be great).

Watch it here:  

2. The Big Bang Theory stars, Simon Helberg and Jocelyn Towne took to the SAG Awards to display their disapproval.

See it here:

3. Famous democratic talk show host, Stephen Colbert, took to his late night show to display a rather hilarious portrayal of Trump’s America.

Watch it here:

4.The smart and intriguingly attractive, Trevor Noah, took to his show to emphasize his lack of approval.
