Angry right-wingers have white hot emotional meltdown over Trump’s ‘flip-flop’ on mass deportations

Published

on

What is Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s current position on the mass deportations of undocumented immigrants he promised his followers all year? No one is sure.

Hispanic leaders who met with Trump on Saturday told BuzzFeed News that Trump indicated to them that he is looking for a “humane and efficient” solution for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently residing in the U.S..

New campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told CNN on Sunday morning that the candidate’s policy on mass deportations is still “to be determined.”

Many of Trump’s right-wing, anti-immigration supporters are howling with outrage over the possibility of any deviation from the plan to forcefully deport all undocumented immigrants. The promise has been a main selling point of the Trump campaign since its launch in June of 2015, when Trump said that Latino immigrants coming to the U.S. are “rapists,” criminals and “drug dealers.”

At conservative website Red State, commentator Kyle Foley said, “Trump’s base is built around this hardcore stance that the wall should be built and the illegal immigrants should be deported. They railed against ‘Gang of Eight’ Marco Rubio for his perceived weak stance, however they will most likely justify Trump’s flip-flop because let’s face it, nothing matters to them. It’s almost like Trump simply told them what they wanted to hear in order to win. Lord knows what he actually believes when it comes to immigration.”

Published

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
