How many human beings were needlessly terrorize with this?

Our executive is a jackass. He will be remembered as a jackass. And teenagers protected under DACA will remember this jackass. Having Donnie Two Scoops as president might be the greatest thing that has ever happened to America: we have united against the great jackass culture of our country. Jackasses: there are a lot of 'em.

They've been saying this for a while - nothing's changed, and it's only a comfort if you trust Congress to do something sensible, which seems far fetched. Also - get ready to clutch your pearls - it might be that Trump is insincere when he says Congress should do something and doesn't expect them to.

Mueller and/or Pootie must be dropping something monumental this week.
 
2017-09-05 10:37:27 PM  
Just more laying more ground work for excusing himself from any responsibility for the inevitable failure his actions will result in.  Just like today's excuse that he was forced into acting by the Republican Texas Attorney General's threat of a lawsuit.  Trump has never been shy about attacking other Republicans who claim they are going to force his hand before.  Looks like a handful of red state Attorneys General have made Trump their little biatch too, but they'll have to share with Putin.

Hmm, seems like political theater just like I said on Sunday.

OH, BTW, This is my post from Sunday:

http://www.fark.com/comments/9720107/110868422#c110868422

"This is outright political theater.

He's giving a six-month window to allow Congress to write the law, most likely with a veto-proof vote.

Trump is doing this to throw a bone to the base and to destroy another piece of Obama's legacy.

Don't lose your shiat over this and lose focus of what Trump's trying to do to the rest of the country.

As was said above, this is coming down to distract us from something else.

What is it?"
 
2017-09-06 05:13:03 AM  
In 6 months, he'll "revisit" this and do nothing because he'll deny he said he would do that...

or he will decide he has no choice but to "follow the law" and let ICE do its thing...

or he will still be demanding Congress do things...

or he'll come up with a totally different executive order that does the same thing but is different because he did it and not Obama.
 
2017-09-06 06:25:43 AM  
I've been reassured that President Obama has a plan.  Stop being so obstructiony!
 
2017-09-06 06:39:35 AM  
He has no idea what he's doing.
 
2017-09-06 06:42:36 AM  
I've heard that he didn't know what it meant to repeal DACA.  The outrage yet again caught him by surprise.

Which pretty much means that Trump was *told* to rid the country of DACA by someone else.  And he obeyed.
 
2017-09-06 06:46:21 AM  
He loves them, but he wants a long-distance relationship.
 
2017-09-06 06:46:29 AM  
On the bright side, the Republicans have probably lost the Hispanic vote forever.  Which would mean something if any of them exist as voting citizens in the nation in the next year and a half.  But then again we haven't seen the complete effects of his unleashing of ICE to harass migrant workers so chances are next year we're going to see some sort of collapse and Trump's sad attempts to run away from his handiwork while screaming "BUT OBAMA."

Trump can't govern at all.  and he's so foul that he's alienating Republicans so they have to support Obama legislation in order not to lose seats by the bucketload...presuming, of course, that their attempts to juryrig the vote haven't solidified yet.
 
2017-09-06 06:47:17 AM  
He has love for many sides, many sides.

"Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do)." ~Donald Trump

Of note:
---of 100 members of the Senate, 8 have served less than a year (8%: 3R, 5D).
---of 435 members of the House 57 have served less than a year (13%: 31R, 26D).

Guess what, Trump: if you're talking Congress, your administration is the "Obama administration".

Show us the real facts, then. Please. I want something to stick to Trump, I really do. He talks like a dictator (great love) and is inconsistent and volatile in manners of state. He has never stopped campaigning, which is a 'cult of personality' building block. Please, pull back the curtain and show me something tangible.

Or that he just heard it was something Obama did, and something that helped Mexicans, and didn't care about any of the other details.

Donnie punted. He did it just for the attention, and for damn sure he has zero idea what this means, because it has nothing to do with him, or his money laundering business, and someone said--yes, I'm looking at Miller--that this would be a GREAT idea to hit great notes with his "base." And that's all it took. "Attention" and "base" and Donnie was off. Because, ultimately, it would be on Congress to fix the problem he created. It wasn't even for real political yardage, just that he realized that hurricane survivors were upstaging him, and he really wanted some press during the Labor Day weekend...and after a few days of realization that people were genuinely shocked and worried about this, he's kinda relented, because he doesn't want to look like a total dick, and he maybe wants to eat at his own hotels without slightly less spit in his food...

Guntram Shatterhand: On the bright side, the Republicans have probably lost the Hispanic vote forever.


I really, really want you to be right on this one, but I'm afraid you're not.  Immigrants, legal or not, are still people, and people are shockingly good at voting against their interests.  Hell, I never thought for a second sooper duuper dubbel scooper would get even one percent of that vote, and he got more of that.  This stupidity will cost him votes there, sure, but he'll still get some.  It's disappointing, but there it is.

He sends "thoughts and prayers" to both dreamers and hard working Americans.

The only plus side to this is that other countries are going to benefit from all the talented people we educated, trained, and deported.

Guntram Shatterhand: On the bright side, the Republicans have probably lost the Hispanic vote forever.


That's what I was thinking too.  At this point, even if Congress does pass something that codifies DACA into law, Trump and the far right polluted the water so much that it would be hard for the GOP to call it a victory.  They won't be able to stand up before the Hispanic community and say, "Vote for us for this is what we did for you".

I believe Trump is playing 4-D chess by using DACA as a bargaining chip for his wall. That's my theory.

How do the dreamers hurt hard-working citizens? How do they affect them at all?

FTFCiCTA:

"Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can't, I will revisit this issue!"

So just to summarize the administration's position:

1. Obama acted unilaterally when Congress failed to pass any meaningful legislation to address a serious national problem. That action was illegal, because reasons.

2. Trump will act unilaterally if Congress fails to pass any meaningful legislation to address a serious national problem. That action will be legal, because reasons.

I feel like I must be missing something, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
 
2017-09-06 07:29:12 AM  
Aren't we glad that Congress doesn't have anything else contentious already on their plate to do in the next six months, like raise the debt ceiling or tax reform?

But anyway, let's roll another hand grenade in. Mueller, got somethin?

  With the impending suit by the group of (R) AG's to end DACA, how obligated to act was this administration? Should he have waited for the court? It's Trump, so I assume that would have been the right move.

starsrift: Aren't we glad that Congress doesn't have anything else contentious already on their plate to do in the next six months, like raise the debt ceiling or tax reform?


Tax reform can take forever.  The debt ceiling has to be done by the end of the month, and possibly the budget.

RedT: How do the dreamers hurt hard-working citizens? How do they affect them at all?


Taking away their jobs! Or some such BS slogan.
 
2017-09-06 07:43:10 AM  
That's what he wants you to think.  He took it away now but to blunt the anger added a 6 month grace period and a bull shiat line about we will talk more in 6 months. Then in 6 months he can just not find the time to revisit it. People won't be anywhere near as upset as they are now. And we will all pretend to be surprised Trump was less than honest about revisiting it
