President Donald J. Trump had a busy weekend. After signing an executive order now known as the "immigration ban," or, more specifically, the "Muslim ban," he allegedly hosted a viewing of Pixar's Finding Dory at the White House movie theater (the first official Trump White House screening).
While the commander-in-chief's immediate jump from tearing families apart to viewing a lighthearted children's movie is entirely consistent with Trump's character, there's no ignoring the irony here, given the movie's plot.
As she reminded us, she doesn't "get political." So, she just talked about the movie itself.
Now, of course, Finding Dory is about a fish named Dory. And Dory lives in Australia and these are her parents. And they live in America. And I don't know what religion they are but her dad sounds a little Jewish, doesn't matter.
Dory arrives in America with her friends Marlin and Nemo and she ends up at the marine life institute behind a large wall. And they all have to get over the wall. and you wont believe it, but that wall has almost no effect on keeping them out.
Even though Dory gets into America, she ends up separated from her family. But the other animals help Dory. Animals that don't even need her. Animals that don't even have anything in common with her. They help her even though they're completely different colors, because that's what you do when you see someone in need, you help them.
Dory herself says #NoWall and #NoBan. If that doesn't sway you politically, nothing will.
