Donald Trump Jr. uses a bowl of Skittles to teach ignorant libs about refugees; let’s see how that went . . .

Donald Trump Jr. made a point on social media to support his father’s call for a temporary ban of all Muslim immigration until we can better vet the immigrants. But it went “whoosh!” — right over the heads of lesser, more liberal minds.

He used a bowl of Skittles as an analogy to state his case.

Many of his detractors pointed out that people aren’t Skittles. What is there about analogy that they don’t understand? Here’s an example from singer John Legend.

Denise Young, vice president of Corporate Affairs for Wrigley, which owns Skittles, made much the same point.

“Skittles are candy. Refugees are people. We don’t feel it’s an appropriate analogy,” she said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “We will respectfully refrain from further commentary as anything we say could be misinterpreted as marketing.”

Just as Young apparently doesn’t understand the concept of “analogy” — much like this person:

And the naysayers often used photos of children to denounce Trump’s reasoning.

And of course Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton got into the act — via her press secretary, Nick Merrill.

He didn’t say whether “disgusting” is a step up or a step down from, “deplorable,” however.

But clearer minds saw through the hype and pointed out the obvious:

Just as those countries — including the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia — speak the same language and overwhelmingly practice the same religion, making assimilation for the immigrants a snap.

When Mrs. Michael Western’s observation was criticized, she came right back with a reply aimed squarely at Democrats — including that “great humanitarian,” former President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Pow!
