It all makes sense now


Forget Tax Cuts. Trump Wants to Rally the G.O.P. Base Over Immigration

WASHINGTON — As Republicans try to keep their midterm election strategy focused on the economy, tax cuts and falling unemployment, President Trump sent his clearest signal yet on Monday that he intends to make divisive, racially charged issues like immigration central going into the campaign season.

Facing bipartisan criticism over his administration’s family separation practice on the border, Mr. Trump renewed the sort of bald and demagogic attacks on undocumented immigrants that worked well for him politically in his 2016 presidential campaign. He inveighed against “the death and destruction that’s been caused by people coming into this country” and vowed that “the United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility.”

The whole thing is GOTV strategy ..Trump is dominating the news cycle with the shock and awe .. And he is betting that shock value will recede while energizing his racist base.

I hope the bastard is sent off in chains to Hague.

2. The Pig just keeps squealing about one thing after another...

Lie about one thing, shamelessly ride that lie out, and then come up with another grift.

You know like the marketing grifters, call after call after call until you find a rube.
