A mass shooting at a mosque last night in Quebec. Six dead, many wounded. The shooter was a white, non-Muslim, anti-immigrant who likes Donald Trump. This happened after Trump's unconstitutional executive order to ban people from predominantly Muslim countries (such as Syrian refugees) from coming to the U.S. (of course, making exceptions for Christians from those countries). Anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim sentiment is a real problem in both Canada and this country. I'm not saying the order caused this shooting, but it's just one more thing to worry about. Prime Minister Trudeau made a statement after Trump's order saying that the refugees were welcome in Canada. Apparently not, because clearly there are bigots and cowards there, too.

I was glad to see the protests at airports across the country over the weekend, and that part of the order was blocked (for now). Even some Republicans are calling Trump out on it. It's time for them to stand up and put country and the U.S. Constitution above party. Meanwhile, Trump is firing people who don't do his bidding, just like Nixon did. And remember what happened to Nixon...
