Interestingly, whilst everyone has been foaming at the mouth over a temporary travel ban, Austria has banned full face veils in public spaces and introduced an "integration contract" for migrants and no one has batted an eyelid...!

I suspect many moderate Muslims are probably afraid to speak out in the current climate.

Morocco (Muslim nation) has done the same - http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/01/reports-morocco-bans-production-sale-burqa-170110140716164.html

But we are talking about the largest and most powerful country in the world banning people. The other is a tiny country, and it isn't the same as banning people.  I also believe there are other countries that have banned veils in public spaces. In NZ they also ban people wearing hoods in some public places, so it isn't unusual for there to be dress codes. Some of this has to do with security, so faces aren't hidden on camera. The thing is that we do now live in a very different world.

 strange man , why would you make fun of a show when you are an executive producer on it 

 

 

Because it's far more important to tell everyone that he did it better.

 

I also seem to recall that NBC had dumped him after some of his controversial remarks on the campaign trail, and we all know Trump can't let anything go.

 

I'm pretty sure at this point his Executive Producer title is just that, a title only.

 

EDIT: Somewhat off topic, I've watched a couple of episodes of the new one and I think Arnold actually does a better job in the boardroom than Trump did. Although it is a bit cringe inducing whenever he quotes one of his movie lines (changing "You're Fired" to "You're Terminated" made sense, but the rest is too much).

I probably has a financial interest in it too, as I can't see him signing a deal where he didn't get ongoing benefits. For many of these TV shows, the actors earn good money for many years after the show has ended with syndication deals.

I'd say the only thing that Trump would put above his financial interests is his ego. I'm sure he'd rather see it fail, than get the continued cash flow of it succeeding without him.

Show is not rating. Must increase ratings!

Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast President Trump urged people to pray for Arnold Schwarzenegger over poor ratings on The Apprentice.

Schwarzenegger suggests a job swap with Trump

Arnold Schwarzenegger has responded quickly to Mr Trump's taunt, with a video on Twitter.

He suggested a job swap so that people could 'sleep comfortably' with him in the White House instead of Mr Trump.

THIS is the reason you find him strange?! Just messin' with ya. 😉

Here you go: Trump's on meds. He's got great hair because of the medications. Disregard the secondary effects including memory loss, decision making troubles. This is secondary to THE HAIR!

 

 

President Trump is taking a prostate drug often prescribed for hair loss, his physician Dr. Harold N. Bornstein told the New York Times in an interview published Wednesday. He also made a point of stating that the President has all of his hair.

 

Goldstein said the drug can cause problems with both mood and cognition, including harmful effects on memory and decision-making.

 

 

This is the guy who said Clinton didn't have the stamina or health to be President. As usual, a liar.

I'm not sure about any of these websites and the way they lean, but it seems Trumps call to Putin wasn't recorded...

Which is what took Nixon out of the White House. Those were the days. Politicians had balls.

Waiting to see. Until signed it's just a rumour. But "freedom of religion" shouldn't ever equate to "freedom to discriminate".
