Weaver95: I wonder how Sessions feels about being treated like this?


He's already put up with all the other abuse 45 has dished out, why would he start complaining now?
 
2017-09-05 04:05:26 AM  
will Trump use the six-month delay to buy time and ultimately not follow through on shuttering DACA?

Probably not. He gets to roll back an Obama program AND get to be a dick to minorities again.

Though I do wonder what the point of the six-month delay is.

I think that's trump's way of 'motivating' congress.  I very much doubt its going to work out in trump's favor tho.  a good bit of the GOP isn't in favor of a DACA repeal.  And republicans in states with heavy numbers of hispanic voters are already looking at serious issues with the 2018 mid term elections.  now with trump making yet more racist threats, the GOP on the ground in those states are sweating bullets.

oddly enough, yes.  assuming the GOP aren't complete idiots they could get enough votes from the Democrats to override trump's veto on a new version of DACA.  i'm sure the democrats would love to shove that in trump's face.  i'm less certain that the republicans have enough of a spine left to stand up and fight to save themselves from trump's corruption.  they really don't have any leaders anymore, nor is there any real will or interest in doing things for the country as a whole.

I only wonder if Sessions would have been hanged by the neck until dead by Washington and the first congress for helping a traitor like Donnie Fondles destroy America, or if those rich white slave owners would laude his efforts to help remove rights from women, negros, poors, and other non WASPs.

It doesn't keep me up at night or anything, but a guy who killed people in their sleep on Christmas eve prolly wasn't the nicest dude ever.

True. Maybe this is how Sessions is holding onto his job? By being the lapdog? Regardless, it is spineless of Trump not to do his own dirty work.

yeah, but did you really expect trump to take the heat for this decision?  not even his own party wants this, and have told him NOT to do it.  There's going to be one HELL of a political price to pay for this move, and trump doesn't seem to understand how bad this will be for the republicans at the state level.  Forget texas and arizona - they're going to flip solid blue all the way down after this.

This is the price the GOP must pay for not stopping the Trump campaign before it really got going. They took him lightly, and now they get to pay the price, assuming the don't collectively grow a spine and toss his ass out of office in very short order. Even that might not be enough to save them in the midterms (impeaching Nixon didn't save the Republicans, either), but at least it might avert a total bloodbath.

But this is the GOP we're talking about. They're so used to catering to the far-right that there is no way they would impeach the far-right's Chosen One. The moment Trump was selected as the Republican candidate for President, the Republican Party died. It just hasn't figured that out yet.
 
2017-09-05 05:58:45 AM  
Of course he won't be taking questions at the announcement. Here's one:

Mr. Sessions, how many free viagra from your platinum health plan will you be using to hate jerk your wrinkled elf wiener when your brown countrymen are rounded up and sent to deportation camps?

Trump doesn't CARE about anything but himself.  To him, removing DACA is a win: it removes non-whites and takes down another Obama order.  Unless someone is able to make him think he came up with an idea himself, it is extremely unlikely he'd do anything that didn't directly benefit himself.

Maybe this is how Trump is stigginit to the GOP House and Senate leadership for "failing him" on healthcare reform? I mean, I really doubt if Trump cares if he is re-elected or not, but he knows the House and Senate are full of Republicans who may easily lose their jobs in 2018. What better way to get back at them for not toeing the line than by working to get them all fired?

Oppose this and you're supporting amnesty for chest-bursting aliens.  I don't want a country full of chest-bursting aliens, and neither should you.

Plus, they'd just keep taking honest jobs from hard-working Americans:

Personally, I think Trump is trying to push all the blame onto congress.  He's hoping that congress will bail his ass out of this mess.  Repealing DACA is all about appealing to his base.  The 6 months is about giving time for congress to  hopefully do something.  If they pass something then trump can claim that he got something done and will try and take credit.  If they fail, Trump has to either extend the deadline/not repeal DACA (make his base angry), or go ahead and begin deportations (make everyone else angry for being a heartless monster).  Either way, this adminstration has decided to go all in on Obama's bluff.  He better hope he can deliver in congress.

It's not designed to work in Trump's favor. Trump is forcing a showdown between factions of the GOP. One side will howl that DACA or the Dream Act should not ever pass or stand or anything. That side won the Presidential election. This is Trump saying "call".

So in a twisted kind of way, this could be best-case-scenario.  Move DACA through the legislative process and it's no longer subject to the whims of an unhinged executive.

I think that it makes sense for a this to be debated in Congress, not decided either way by the Executive Branch. No problem with revoking it and then letting the chips fall where they may. Isn't that what the Legislative Branch is supposed to do? Then if you don't like the result, vote them out. We've got to get back to proper governance..
