ACLU *mistakenly* posts *most unfortunate* tweet ever

Exuberance at Hawaii Order scaling back Trump Travel Order led to unfortunate error.

Late last night a federal judge in Hawaii issued an Order scaling back the Trump administration’s implementation of the Travel Order.

The judge disagreed with the Trump administration as to who would be considered a “close familial relationship” under the Supreme Court’s ruling. The Hawaii judge ruled that “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins” would fall under that category, and thus be excluded from Travel Order bar to entry.

The ACLU celebrated early this morning with a *most unfortunate* tweet:

Oops. They linked the wrong AP report.

The tweet was deleted but lives on in the Internet archives. (h/t Ashley Rae on Twitter)

When someone called it to their attention, the ACLU noted the mistake.

Here is the new, corrected tweet:


Donations tax deductible

Freudian slip, anyone?

The ACLU managed to put the whole muslim admission issue into context by mistake.

Hawaii has an army?
