Fake news for stupid people

This was shared on Facebook by more than 150,000 people:

The story that went with it said:

22nd Circuit Court of Appeals Justice Hansam al Alallawalahi-Smith made headlines this week when he overturned a ruling out of Dearborn, Michigan. The ruling allowed two critical and violent tenets of Sharia Law to be practiced here in the United States.

A couple of things:
1) There is no 22nd Circuit Court of Appeals. There are only 13.
2) There is no judge with this name.
3) The president can’t remove a federal judge. A federal judge has to be impeached by the House of Representatives, then convicted  by the Senate.

Oh, and by stupid people in the headline, I meant pump truppets.

  1. Yeah, I knew that the president has no authority to remove a judge. . . Just so you know, not all of us are historically challenged.
