Obama’s Ouster of Russians Has U.S. Political Implications

December 30, 2016 at 03:00PM - obama-s-ouster-of-russians-has-u-s-political-implications

Alisyn Camerota of CNN recently did a feature story on the early-morning broadcast of New Day lamenting the alleged maltreatment of Muslim women in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election. The central narrative of the feature was that since the murders by the Muslim husband and wife killers in San Bernardino, California, Muslim women wearing traditional headscarves have been targeted for harassment; therefore, she suggested, U.S. women should don headscarves in order to show their "solidarity" with Muslim women.
