I am beyond disgusted at the behaviour of Trump and his so-called administration about everything.
This latest atrocity is heartbreaking. What sort of a cowardly monster and bully is he? They are all damn liars and racists.
PoliticusUSA has this to say…
An attorney general who committed perjury before the United States Senate is announcing that a president who is under criminal investigation for obstruction of justice is announcing that an administration that tried to implement an unconstitutional Muslim ban, short-circuited the pardon process to pardon Joe Arpaio, fired the FBI Director, and has tried to pressure both the Justice Department and Congressional investigators to drop the Russia investigation is concerned about the rule of law.
The only rule of law that the Trump White House is concerned with involves discrimination against immigrants and bigotry toward Muslims.
An administration that is riddled with corruption and conflicts of interest coming directly out of the Oval Office wants the American people to buy that they are concerned about the rule of law. Trump is the most lawless president in the last forty plus years. The administration’s attempt to hide behind law and order is an insult to every single American.
What a farce to pretend that rescinding DACA is about the rule of law.
Josh Marshall notes…
What Trump is actually doing is designed not to get a good outcome but rather to avoid blame for a bad outcome. That’s a major difference. Indeed, the way he’s going about it makes getting a legislative fix much harder. Now Democrats will rightly see any negotiations with the President on this front as negotiation with a bad actor. It’s not much better for the GOP. The real legislative problem here is on the Republican side. This triggers as significant intra-party fight under duress. No Republican leaders can be happy about that. Let’s hope they can make something happen. But the President’s approach is designed to make such an effort fail.
What the President is doing is the executive action equivalent of flying the plane up to 10,000 feet, tossing the Dreamers out the door and yelling after them, “I hope you have a parachute or if you don’t that Paul Ryan can get you one really fast!’ Actually, one small difference. He had Jeff Sessions toss them out of the plane. The big picture is the same: this is an approach meant not to achieve any good outcome but to get out of the blame when bad things start happening.
Will. Someone. Please. Make. It. Stop.
Imagine hating a man, Obama, so much that you would ruin the lives of people who have only known the USA as their home. Trump doesn’t care what the policy is. If Obama implemented it, he will try to dismantle it. Trump cannot stand that Obama was loved so much more than he will ever be, and our love for Obama’s class and dignity is missed more with every move Trump makes.
When people listen to Trump they need to hire a Trump translator. When one hears Trump say, “I have a great heart,” he actually is saying that he has “no heart.” Remember when he said that he would replace the ACA with something better. His actual plan was no health care for millions of Americsns. This attack on DACA is a direct assault on the legacy of Barack Obama. This is Trump’s driving force and is based on Trump’s racism that has guided his personal philosophy since the Central Park Five Case. By now if anyone believes anything that Trump enunciates like “We love the dreamers,” they need their head examined.
I have been saying this all along. Trump simply wants to destroy Obama’s legacy.
