Is nothing sacred? Not to Omar Imran, Twitter's top talent for Muslim laughs!

What ever happened to "if you can't say something nice, say nothing at all?" Seems mama's credo goes out the window when it comes to politics and comedy.

Donald Trump spews snappy soundbites that shatter standards of political decorum, exhibiting all the tics of Tourette syndrome while purportedly saying what many think. There's a Muslim pundit doing similar on social media, using a sharp wit to expose un-believers to a lighter side of Islam, and encourage Muslims targeted by bad press to keep calm and carry on. Catch the comedy of Omar Imran, Twitter's top talent for Islamic laughs
