When you hear "all-girls robotics team from Afghanistan", you might assume the Taliban would be what stops their success, not the US president...

That used to be the assumption. :( Under this asshole in the White House it's sadly a more even bet than not given he's given free rein to the worst impulses of Islamophobia in American culture. :(

And that the USA's been bombing that country for 16 years nowand this is how we decide to handle people who should be welcomed with both hands? It's wrong, and ultimately rather obscene.
