CNN commentator Sally Kohn received a bevy of backlash over a tweet she posted Tuesday morning.
Kohn wrote that many “progressive Muslims” are actually in favor of sharia law, a strict government adherence to codified principles of the Islamic faith.
Hey @realDonaldTrump, many *progressive Muslims* — the ones we should support in ideological fight against extremism — believe in Sharia!!

Unfortunately for Kohn, she’s totally wrong.
And the Internet let her have it.
@Coondawg68 I’m convinced that hers is a parody account

@Coondawg68 Dumber than dirt. Kohn obviously skates by on her looks.

@CounterMoonbat I’m convinced now @sallykohn doesn’t believe what she tweets at this point because it’s so ridiculous.This is for attention

@sallykohn As a lesbian, you would be put to death under Sharia. Why would you support such an ideology. #HYPOCRITE @realDonaldTrump
