Airing Hypocrisy: AirBnB, the website that matches up travelers with people who want to rent out rooms in their homes, is doing some expensive virtue-signaling by running a TV ad during President Trump’s State of the Union Address. It hails the enchanting enticements of the countries that known fabulist Dick Durban claims Trump insulted with his call for stricter immigration vetting and controls (interestingly, some of these countries are already the subject of travel warnings from both our own government and theirs). The idea is reportedly that we need open doors, not walls, which frankly doesn’t sound like a B&B I’d want to stay in.
As a chaser, here’s a link to the AirBnB web page that reassures renters that they’re not letting criminals into their homes. The headline: “Sharing your space…with someone you’ve never met can feel like a leap of faith.” No kidding? But don’t worry, they detail all the strict vetting would-be guests have to go through before they’re allowed through the door.
I am LITERALLY trembling with outrage!
