In every instance that Trump target Muslims, the reanimated corpse of the Bush presidency is forced into the public arena again, and a parade of commentators tell a story that is pure fiction about an administration that only exists in their heads.

President Bush speaks to the press during his visit to the Mosque at the Islamic Center in Washington, D.C., on, September 17, 2001.
