Kim Kardashian West has hit out at ‘The Donald’s’ decision to ban refugees from seven majority Muslim nations entering the USA.
While Australia’s Scott Morrison has come to the defence of Trump‘s policy this morning, Mrs Kardashian West wasn’t having a bar of it. She took to the US presidents preferred leadership platform (yes, that’s Twitter), to sum up the ridiculousness of the ‘Executive Order’ with one word and a neat little chart.
Captioned with ‘Statistics’ – Kardashian’s image breaks down the average fatalities for US citizens from a variety of sources.
It highlights the 2 Americans that are killed by “Islamic Jihadist immigrants” each year – compared with 11,737 deaths that occur from US citizens shooting each other. Quick side note and fun fact: guns have killed more Americans in the past 50 years than every US war ever (*cough* that’s fucked *cough*).
Also on the list are the 21 people who are killed every year by armed toddlers (more gun deaths), 69 from freak lawnmower deaths and 737 people who die from falling out of bed.

In issuing his radical policy for the USA, Trump claims he is aiming to “protect our country and our people” – but looking at these stats, that seems a little misguided.
While we’re on the theme of stats, Ped.tv also points out that Kardashian has more Twitter followers than Donald Trump’s personal account and @POTUS combined with nearly 50 million followers. Sucked in.
West is copping a whole heap of love from fellow celebs and tweeters. Here’s a collection for how the big angry mob are responding:
