Trump really can’t win with anyone this week. After repeatedly asking African-American voters “What do you have to lose?” Trump proceeded to participate in a Fox News town hall with Sean Hannity Wednesday night, proving himself weak on what is supposedly his signature issue: immigration.
“You also seem to be indicating there might be something other than ‘they have to go back,'” Hannity told Trump, referencing reports that Trump may be softening his plan, which initially included a deportation force for 11 million undocumented immigrants.
“We have to follow the laws of our country,” Trump told Hannity.
“That means they go back,” Hannity said.
“I’ll ask the audience,” Trump said. “Can we go through a process or do you think they have to get out? Tell me, I mean, I don’t know. You tell me.”
Trump’s far-right fans were not happy with this answer, most notably Ann Coulter, who criticized Trump’s comments Thursday.
“It sounds as if some campaign consultant has slipped into his campaign, and I don’t think he should have been hiring Rubio’s speechwriter for his interview with you giving all these ridiculous talking points for amnesty,” Coulter said.
RINO Pundit took Coulter’s statement and ran with it in a parody video titled Hitler Finds Out Trump Supports Amnesty which uses the 2004 German historical war film Downfall (Der Untergang), based on Hitler’s Bunker by Joachim Fest.
“Ann Coulter starts her Trump-supporting book tour this week, and we may get through a full week without face-planting,” an adviser appears to tell Hitler, according to RINO Pundit’s subtitles.
“As long as Trump’s pivot isn’t too drastic we should be in the clear,” Hitler says.
“Trump went full-blown amnesty on a Hannity special. He’s using ‘back taxes’ as a way of hiding he’s endorsing the Gang of 8 bill,” the advisers tell him.
“We were the alt-right’s darling for deporting Mexicans and building the wall!” he exclaims.
