I saw this meme shared on Twitter this afternoon.

Sorry, but I do not wish to accept the opinion of Saudi Arabia. 9/11 anyone? We have not had terrorists from any of the 6 countries, but we HAVE been attacked by Saudis. And who is leading the coalition targeting Yemen? So thanks, but no thanks. This meme makes it sound like what the Saudi prince says is a good thing. No, it is not. Our courts, the administration’s own words, a majority of Americans, and the countries part of the ban disagree with you.

An adviser to the prince said something similar a couple days ago. Video and my comments here.

Here is the Tweet with the meme:

Read the Hawaii court order that blocked Trump’s revised travel ban from Vox.

Here is where the president’s and the words of his own advisers disagree with the Saudi prince.

The court concluded that this evidence, “In many cases, made by the Executive himself, betray the Executive Order’s stated secular purpose.” A lot of people complain about all the airtime Trump and adviser’s received by the media prior to the election. Turn out all that airtime was used against them.

And here is where the Department of Homeland Security disagrees with the Saudi prince about the order protecting national security.

In conclusion, I’m going to listen to an American court order before a prince from Saudi Arabia.
