The civil war in Syria is horrific. Nearly a half-million Syrians have died as a result of the fighting between the butchers who run the government and forces seeking to overthrow Syrian tyrant Bashar Assad. Over 11 million men, women, and children have been displaced from their homes and are now refugees. And on Wednesday, someone used sarin nerve gas on innocent civilians. Our government says the nerve gas was dropped by forces loyal to Assad, but as much as Trump and his minions love to lie, everything they say has to be taken with a grain of salt.
Also on Wednesday, when video of children dying from the effects of sarin poisoning made cable news, Ivanka Trump, who is probably Donald Trump’s closest and most trusted adviser, tweeted out this:
Heartbroken and outraged by the images coming out of Syria following the atrocious chemical attack yesterday.

We can all agree with what Ivanka posted, but it also brings up larger points about the inhumanity of the policies her father has instituted to keep Syrian refugees from entering the United States. And it didn’t take long for others to let Ms. Trump have a taste of the hypocrisy at the heart of her tweet:
Wait until you find out that your Dad signed an executive order banning those same people from entering the United States https://t.co/7JHPCmJ8NF

@IvankaTrump Your father wants to ban Syrians and your brother compared them to skittles. Where's your outrage about that?

@IvankaTrump Oh take your fake outrage and shove it

Hey, Ivanka, some advice: Stay the fuck off Twitter and tell your lying father to do the same.
