Twitter was quick to find irony in President Donald Trump’s mid-afternoon screening of “Finding Dory” on Sunday in the White House as crowds gathered outside to protest an executive order banning refugees and immigrants from certain countries from entering the United States.
The White House announced the 3 p.m. screening in its official daily schedule.
CBS correspondent Mark Knoller reported that Trump is screening “Finding Dory,” citing a White House aide.

At 3pm, Trump is hosting a screening of Finding Dory, a movie about what happens when you’re separated from your family.
Let that sink in.
