Trump Tunes Out Immigration Ban Protests With ‘Finding Dory’

As protests erupted in response to President Donald Trump’s draconian immigration, he decided he would block it all out with a screening of a family movie.

Immigration Ban Protest

The first family, it seems, sets no limit to its insensitivity.

As Ivanka Trump tweeted a picture of herself with husband Jared Kushner, all dressed up for a night out, the White House announced it was hosting a screening of the Disney Pixar’s beloved comedy, “Finding Dory” — a story about a blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every few seconds and was separated from her parents when she was a small fry.

 

 

Presidents have enjoyed the privilege of watching movies since Woodrow Wilson first screened “The Birth of a Nation.” Hence, as soon as protests erupted in response to President Donald Trump’s draconian immigration, he decided he would block it all out with a perfectly timed screening of the movie — which is, incidentally, a movie about a fish that travels to reunite with her family, something that Trump, with his executive orders, is now preventing in real life.

Twitter users took note of parallels and inundated social media with ironic tweets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Others have also pointed out the similarity between Dory’s nonexistent attention span with Trump’s:

 

 

It should also be noted that the movie gives a lesson in environmental conservation: Dory travels through the endangered Great Barrier Reef and goes to a place that serves as a rehabilitation habitat for animals harmed by pollution. Hence it’s ironic that Trump chose to watch it since he himself denies the existence of climate change.

Soon after the controversy White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tweeted Trump spent “60 seconds” greeting White House staff and their children.

 

 

This may be the worst comeback ever.
