A Curious Thing About the Trump Administration’s Proposed Muslim Ban

Last week a federal court again rejected the Trump administration’s attempt to temporarily ban people from entering the U.S. from certain countries with large Muslim populations.  That’s been happening to the Trump administration a lot lately.

But here’s what The Curmudgeon finds interesting.

When Agent Orange and his gang first attempted to institute such a ban, back in late January, they insisted it would only be temporary and that they needed three months to improve the manner in which the U.S. performs background checks on such individuals – how we “vet” such people is how they put it.

So you have to ask yourself:  now that four months have passed since they first sought that ban, why are they still seeking to institute one?  They’ve now had more than the three months they said they needed.

Haven’t they been working on the improved background investigation process?

Or are they unable to do more than one thing at a time?

Or – and this is what The Curmudgeon suspects – has this become more about winning than it is about keeping the country safe?
