Moments ago, President Donald Trump signed his revised executive order suspending immigration from a number of countries, prompting an epic level of triggering.
According to USA Today, Trump’s new order affects citizens and nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen who did not obtain a visa by 5 p.m. on January 27, 2017.
Al Jazeera has already taken to calling it a “Muslim ban.”

Several Twitter users were very quick to point out their error.
@AJENews Is it Muslim ban or Travel ban? A news media should be trusted and professional in all aspect including headlines.

@AJENews it doesn’t say “Muslim ban”. Please edit your news story to reflect the truth and the facts, not stir the hype.

@AJENews as silly as it is it’s not a “Muslim” ban. 6 countries,Jews, Christians,atheists included. Indonesia, w/270M muslims, not included

@AJENews it’s a Travel Ban same thing signed by every US President since the beginning. Where did it say Muslim? More rhetoric from CNN?

Keith Olbermann, meanwhile, posted this triggered out response to the executive order, which was accompanied by equally triggered comments.

CNN’s readers are also apparently hysterical.

@CNNPolitics our national security is at risk because we have a president accusing a former president of a crime without facts!

@CNNPolitics how is this not exactly the same or worse than the last one? Time to lawsuit against its constitutionality.

Keith Ellison and his fans have also weighed in.

Conservatives aren’t all happy with Trump’s revised executive order, however.
Some appear to have found fault in the fact that the President has left Iraq off the list of banned countries.
