Donald_Trump_Signs_The_Pledge_06St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman isn’t too thrilled with Donald Trump’s proposal to stop all Muslim immigration until “our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

In response, ABC News said he’s banned The Donald from his city “until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps.”

Does he really mean it?  No, according to a report at the Tampa Bay Times, something the ABC report left out (wonder why?):

“You make a ridiculous statement, so you answer with a ridiculous statement,” Kriseman said. “There are some people who thought I was seriously going to ban Donald Trump from St. Petersburg, and that’s obviously not something I would try to do. But his statement was kind of ridiculous, so I thought that it deserved an equal response.”

The Times added:

Kriseman said he didn’t expect his tweet to take off like it had, but that he welcomed the spotlight on St. Petersburg.

“I very quickly had to take my phone out of my pocket because it wouldn’t stop vibrating,” he said.

It’ll probably be quite busy today as well.
