The 'Muslim Ban': Should We Take Giuliani Literally?

As written, President Trump's executive order temporarily banning certain people from entering the US cannot be considered a so-called "Muslim ban." However, talking heads like former NYC Mayor Rudi Giuliani have muddied the waters.

"That Giuliani came out and said, Donald Trump just wanted a clever way to do a Muslim ban, that's the problem with it. Do you take him serious or literally?" Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

What easy test did Stu give the Trump administration to clear up this matter?

Watch the video above or read the transcript below for answers.

STU: I'm really hoping for a question from the -- maybe to Spicer today or Trump in some interview. Because I think there's an easy way for him to push off all of this Muslim ban talk that everybody keeps mentioning. Because the executive order does not say that.

He did -- and I understand why people are jumping to that. But that policy, which I opposed as vigilantly as anyone, the initial Trump proposal of a Muslim ban I think was unconstitutional and horrible.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But that policy is not this policy.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: So here's an easy way to test the Trump administration: Population of Iran is made up of 89 percent Shia Muslims and 9 percent Sunni Muslims. In Iran, Sunni Muslims are a religious minority. If they were persecuted by a terrible Iranian government, would they be allowed to go to the front of the line once refugee admissions continue like other religious minorities? If Episcopalians started violently persecuting Presbyterians somewhere, no one would say, "Well, they're all Christians, so you don't to have worry about it." The distinction would be important.

And I think what would surprise a lot of people is that Sunni Muslims being imported in that scenario --

GLENN: Do you think Spicer could answer that? I don't know enough about Spicer yet.

STU: I don't know, but, I mean, it's a good question to ask. And if the Trump administration were smart, they would say, "Wait a minute. Yeah, they would be okay." They're certainly okay by the language of it. Only the intent would prevent this from occurring.

GLENN: Right. The Giuliani problem is the sticking point here.

STU: It's very tough. Yeah, very tough.

GLENN: That Giuliani came out and said, "Donald Trump just wanted a clever way to do a Muslim ban." That's the problem with it. Do you take him serious or literally?

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.

Elon Musk CALLED OUT for…chocolate milk?

You can milk anything with nipples, as we discovered in the documentary Meet the Parents. Maybe someone should tell Elon Musk if he's really serious about the environment, he should try oat milk, almond milk, heck — there's even banana milk. It would at least keep some of the lefty trolls at bay.
