Trump says deportations a 'military operation;' Homeland chief says no

David Agren, Special for USA TODAY
34 minutes ago
MEXICO CITY President Trump said Thursday his plan to deport undocumented immigrants is a "military operation," a comment that seemed to undercut Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly's assurances that there would be "no mass deportations" or use of the U.S. military in immigration enforcement plans.

1. "I'm the most militaristic person in this race." And, of course,

"I will be so good at the military, your head will spin."

Well, at least he was right about the head-spinning.

5. Aaand

Just removed it.

Read the fine print, it was a fake quote.
Will replace with a good one.

9. Sorry about that. The actual quote was:

"And yet I'm the most militaristic person there is."

See: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2015/08/11/donald_trumps_isis_policy_cut_them_off_where_theyre_getting_their_wealth_take_the_oil.html

And: "I will be so good at the military your head will spin."

See:
http://theslot.jezebel.com/donald-trump-i-will-be-so-good-at-the-military-your-he-1728756209

I'm not aware that either of these are fake quotes.

10. By the way, what fine print are you referring to?

Just curious. I'm actually somewhat of a stickler on reading the fine print, so I'm a little embarrassed that I missed it.

13. At the bottom of the meme

It said "politifake"



I assume that means it is a fake quotes page.

4. Bannon is using Trump

As a battering ram to break down institutional checks and balances and rule of law.


I forsee this getting very ugly.

15. I can't wait to watch Trump's head explode once he finally realizes

that he was being used all along. It will be the ultimate humiliation!

7. No law is worth the paper it's written on if those with actual power won't enforce it.

If we keep going down this road it will eventually come down to which side the military takes.

12. And that lack of enforcement is exactly how those institutions become meaningless.

Making it that much easier for someone like Trump and Bannon.

Congress, the courts, have to do their jobs or they become little more than accomplices.

8. Never read the comments

In the comments on the MSN story about this, there's a whole flock of flying monkeys who say either (1) they totally understood what President Trump was saying, because they can read minds; or (b) "military operation" is a new form of adjective that apparently doesn't need a noun.

I gently pointed out to one of them that his defense of Trump's unconstitutional utterance made no fucking sense.

11. His aides, dept heads, etc, all have to refute his stupid comments.

Geez, they have to spend so much time spinning, it's a wonder anything gets done.
