    Well, he might not have wanted it, but Trump is certainly making at least one thing great again: Massive number of donations to the ACLU.

    First donations were already up since his election:

    But in true Trump fashion, he's outdone himself and has gotten even bigger numbers! With his EO on "extreme vetting" he managed to raise more money for them then they make in a year. Six times more! In one weekend! Amazing.

    As long as you're not Muslim.

    Or a non-citizen.

    Oh, wait, I said that out loud.

    Sometimes leaders have to do that. People don't realize that our safety and well being needs to come first. We can't be the crazy lady taking in every stray cat in need.

    No, we actually don't need to do anything with them. The other Muslim nations should step up. Why aren't their citizens marching in their streets demanding their gov'ts do something? Islam is a religion of peace right? Have they ever march for peace or for doing something good like that? EVER? Seems to me if they were such a great group of nations together they would be jumping all over the Syrian Crisis. Why aren't they? 46+ Muslim nations with 1B+ people and are any of them stepping up? Marching? .........I hear nothing but crickets from them.

    Hmm..

    This, from 1992.

    You may want to have a look in the mirror, and put your privilege in check.

    posted plenty of times, Liberals only care about civil liberties when republicans are in office, where were those donations when Obama signed indefinite detention w/o trial into law? the only way for liberals to have a back bone is to have a republican back in office :D

    Sorry - I have to laugh at the closing statement. Either CNN put that in there for humor, or it's just pure irony (or both)

    "He helped write the Supreme Court brief in the case that would establish a legal precedent for a sitting president to be sued in civil court."
