The radical white nationalist publication Breitbart shared what it purported to be a “Muslim prayer rug” at the Arizona border.
Turns out, it was a discarded Adidas jersey.
Somebody found what is obviously an Adidas shirt on the ground near the border in 2014, and conservatives decided it was a “Muslim prayer rug.” Now the president is using that Adidas shirt to stoke fear and anti-immigrant sentiment in 2019. Truly the dumbest timeline. pic.twitter.com/lczWaiXmkj

Americans have had enough.
Please stop the country, I would like to get off now…

Well, that’s good. I was worried about the absentminded Muslims who left all their rugs after prayer.
“Oh crap Tim, I lost another rug.”

Glad you found it! I knew I had heard that story somewhere.
