Trump Supporters Threaten to Boycott Hawaii; Hawaii Celebrates
On Wednesday, a Hawaiian judge blocked Trump’s second attempt to ban Muslims from entering the United States.
In response, Trump supporters threatened to boycott the state of Hawaii. They started a hashtag #BoycottHawaii and posted angrily about it on Twitter.

One Trump supporter even threatened to visit Galveston:
For the record, this is Kona, Hawaii:
This is Galveston, Texas:
Hawaii, for its part, couldn’t be happier. Why would anybody want a bunch of obnoxious, small-minded jerks around anyway?
#BoycottHawaii Best news I've heard all day! Fewer narrow-minded bigots littering our beaches and mocking our traditions. Mahalo iā ʻoukou!

LOL @ #BoycottHawaii. We don't need more ignorance in our grass hut villages. It ruins our dolphins and makes our Mai Tai's taste bad.

Will the MAGA chuds really boycott Hawaii? Probably not. Most of them probably weren’t planning to visit in the first place. We expect this campaign to turn out as well as their attempt to boycott Starbucks, or Hamilton, or Kellogg’s.
But in the meantime, if you’re trying to get away from Trump supporters, Hawaii sounds like a pretty great place to visit.
