???? Continued Islamophobia From Texas Republican Sid Miller And Bully-in-chief Donald Trump????

Austin, TX — Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller posted an article praising President Donald Trump for having removed a Muslim federal judge who attempted to implement Sharia law.

NEWS FLASH: it’s not true and Sid Miller was duped.

“A ‘22nd Circuit Court of Appeals’ does not exist in the federal court system, and removal of a federal judge must happen via impeachment, according to the U.S. Constitution, not presidential executive order.” [Houston Chronicle, November 27, 2017]

This morning, Donald Trump defended sharing a far-right, ultranationalists video on Twitter with the intent of portraying the Muslim community in a bad light.

Texas Democratic Party Communications Director Tariq Thowfeek issued the following statement:

“It’s clear that Sid Miller and Donald Trump enjoy sharing notes from the same racist, bigoted playbook. The world would be a better place if both of them deleted their social media accounts.”
