ThinkProgress Editor Posts Ridiculous Tweet About NYC Attack. Shapiro Finishes Her With Tweet

On Wednesday, Elham Khatami, an editor at the leftist website ThinkProgress, decided to slam President Trump for stating he wanted to send Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, the Muslim terrorist who murdered eight people in New York City, to Gitmo. Trump had said, “That was a horrible event and we have to stop it and we have to stop it cold. We also have to come up with a punishment that is far quicker and far greater in the punishment these animals are getting right now.” Responding to a question from a reporter, Trump stated, “I would certainly consider that. Send him to Gitmo.”

That was enough for Khatami to issue a tweet condeming Trump that had one small problem:

The singular problem with Khatami’s tweet was succinctly stated by Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro:

After deleting her tweet, Khatami tweeted:

But she had no problems parroting the plaint of those on the Left that criticism of Muslim terrorists is by definition Islamophobic

She also tweeted this out on Wednesday:

As a well-known non-Muslim might have advised Khatami regarding the Islamophobia obsession blinding her to facts: Physician, heal thyself.
