(The Daily Beast)   Trump's being nice to Spanish people. Oh, the horror... the humanity. Next thing you know he won't hate the blacks. The betrayal is deep. We're setting fire to our pointy white hats in protest   ( thedailybeast.com) divider line

Good.

I can grasp various arguments about immigrants and immigration but not this one. Anybody willing to send a productive person to a place they have never lived has nothing but evil in their hearts.

Translation: you assholes are going to hell for thinking like this

That explains him pivoting with the tweet that no deal was reached.  He is once again trying to show his base that he still holds and supports their beliefs, as if his base is the majority of not just his voters but also the majority of America.  Christ, what an asshole.
 
2017-09-14 08:57:32 AM  
As Scarborough said this morning, his "base" wants him to be on the wrong side of a 90/10 deal.  Maybe 12% are in favor of deporting DACA folks.

Fine.  Let him stay "pure".  Get nothing done.  It's done wonders for Congress' approval and effectiveness.

Now that's unexpected.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) tweeted that if the news is true, "Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible."

Rep King went on to pull his hair out, throw things, cry and then ask for purple monkey dishwasher pills. "I'll be responsible!!!" he spewed before passing out.

Trump is now f*cking with us and Congress on purpose. He's going to make them kiss his ass to get his support on legislation and then he's going to set them against each other.

fark Steve King. The border wall is still a dumb idea.

Nancy Pelosi is an accomplished politician and was an extremely effective Speaker. If there's one thing she's very good at it's getting cooperation from strong personalities. Ryan and McConnell are out matched.

Here's hoping you are right. But this sort of personality is hard to stand up to. Good luck, Mrs Pelosi.

They aren't going to WANT his support on legislation.  Because he's fickle and will break any promise he makes.

Honestly, Congress should just not take the president's calls and DO THEIR FARKING JOBS!  For fark's sake, GOVERN!

No. He's going to give each side a false sense of "we can make a deal with this guy". Then something like debt ceiling looms and he suddenly decides he has a wall sized thorn up his ass that has to be scratched. Or not. It might have the Dream Act attached. Or not.

Being racist doesn't mean you 'hate the <insert differently pigmented populace here>.  It means you think your group of people that share the same level of pigmentation is inherently superior to others.

Hatred often comes with racism, but not always.

Make sure you're wearing the pointy white hats before you light them. They burn better that way.

If I was president, I would ask Steve King his opinion before tackling any matter.
Then, do the exact opposite.
 
2017-09-14 10:56:55 AM  
The only person who might give Trump a run for his money in being despicable is Rep Steve King.  So I'm very happy he's so distraught.  Golf clap for Trump.

They are never going to abandon Trump, regardless of what "liberal" action he takes.

They might grumble about it loudly, but all they know at this point is R good, D bad. Plus for a lot of self proclaimed rugged individualists, these were the same people calling him President Daddy back in January. They know that they're his biatches, they just can't admit it.
 
2017-09-14 10:58:59 AM  
Say what you, but you can't deny that Trump (or his advisors) know what they are doing here.

This move will gain him 6-8 points with liberals and independents, and lose him 3-4 from his base.

I'd bet on a good 3-5 point bump in his approvals over the next few days.
 
2017-09-14 10:59:09 AM  
His desire for adulation is making him pivot.  This is a hilarious exploit only possible with malignant narcissists.

I'm ending DACA ... but maybe I'll look that decision again in six months.
Congress said I made a deal for DACA ... but they forgot about funding the wall.

He's not being nice, he's just trying to keep ratings high with an eternal cliffhanger ending.  You'll have to tune in next week to find what the new position on the Magic-8 ball is!

BORING!

Once he fears "Boring. I'm changing the channel" he'll ratchet it up.

Latino is strictly Latin America.  Hispanic is having Spanish heritage.

But if you just mean language then they're all Spanish.  Not a big deal, probably, but good to know the difference.

I'm confused.

If his racist asshole fans hate it, it must be a good idea, but it's Baby Donald. He's never seen a good idea that he didn't want to shiat all over.  So very, very confused ...
 
2017-09-14 11:09:47 AM  
My thinking is that there was a DACA deal because trump thought praise would be heaped upon him.  But once the initial reaction was the scorn from Republicans and not the glowing praise he expected, Trump change his mind.

Hahahahahaha, like the GOP can do anything but obstruct and lie. Hell, they couldn't get the votes from their own party to repeal the ACA, their rallying cry for the past 6+ years!

Wait, you guys thought he was going to honor some sort of promise? Let me laugh even harder.

I'm pretty sure if enough people thank him for supporting policy X, and that they stand with him against RINOs like Ryan who oppose X, because Trump is smart for knowing X will MAGA, then Trump will believe that policy X was his idea all along and start asking his staffers why X hasn't happened yet. He's a narcissist with dementia, you can inception him while he's awake.

Basically, I'm suggesting that everyone with a Twitter account message Trump thanking him for his support of Medicare for all as a way to repeal and replace Obamacare and MAGA, no matter what jealous RINOs like McConnell and Ryan try to say.
