In his ongoing effort to reach the White House in the 2016 election by any means necessary, yesterday (December 7) Donald Trump declared that the United States should ban all Muslims from entering the country.
As expected, he got the world talking. Here are some of the best responses:

Donald Trump is unhinged. His “policy” proposals are not serious.

As a woman I feel like I should vote for Hillary but as a monster who wants to destroy mankind, I should probably vote for Trump.

I am hereby barring Donald Trump from entering St. Petersburg until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps.

What do Hitler & Trump have in common? Racism. Deportations. ID’s. “Secure the border.” “Purify the nation.” Surveillance. Special camps.

I’m not worried about a Trump presidency. I’m more worried about the politicians who’re learning that pure hate is a winning strategy.

Trump’s response to the uproar? “I wrote something today that I think is very, very salient, very important and probably not politically correct, but I don’t care,” he reportedly said last night during a rally in South Carolina.
