...and although there were a few dissenters, most of the idiots over there were indeed applauding Chump's EO as some kind of brilliant strategic move. Sadly, it just goes to prove that they'll co-sign anything that maniac does...

Lot's of bathroom floors have black and white tiles and they would have woken up on them a few times.

Trump plans executive action to prevent family separations at border Headline of an op at Freeperville

Some comments:

Well, Trump lost this one. If ryan is not removed, expect a lot more of this kind of caving. These short timers are going to do as much damage as they can before they go. There is no tomorrow for them if they do not deliver for their future employers. I believe it is going to hurt us come midterms, very badly.

Wrong answer. They should continue to enforce the law.

We are now ruled by the manufactured outrage of the moment and not by law.

I’m a new never Trumper,never republican never conservative and really
Just gonna stop caring. Have fun y’all

Man up and support your president. The system is fraught with hurdles and it won’t be easy to jump them all.
But at least he’s trying. What else would you have him do?

I believe he should have stuck to his guns and forced congress to do his job. What does this say to his department heads that have had his back through all this? This was a coordinated effort by the gopE, dnc and the msm. Now that they know trump can be cowed in this way, we'll be seeing this kind of ginned-up outrage and unjustified hysteria non-stop. JMHO

RE:"I really really like option #1. It is working."
Yep but Trump's wife and daughter don't and they count more than you do.

It should be stipulated that the “families” and their “children” need to undergo DNA tests to prove that they are actually related. I would expect to see a huge dust cloud if that happens.

Continue to enforce the law as they are doing now.
Yes! There's no question the policy is working.


They are neither consistent or intelligent.

5. The EO doesn't mean squat

Trump just found a more efficient way to punish these poor families.
There's much more going on than we know. And they aren't telling us anything.
We need whistleblower contractors. We need brave journalists. We need
tenacious congresspeople. Trump wouldn't be squirming like this unless
there was much worse things to hide. Go for it.

6. What this may mean is this, Trump will not take any more, but.........

he will keep the children that he has already taken..therefore...for Trump it is a win/win situation..

And..Trump does not have to release those he has taken..he has not said that he will do that. The Trumpers could have seen this as the meaning of what Trump has done..So. let us see if Trump does release the
children to the parents. They may be correct..???

10. Trump could smash his own face with a pie and Freeperville would declare it an act of brilliance

It's not about his actions - it's about rabid Trump cultism.
