Last June, CNN’s Jim Acosta got into a heated discussion with White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller over Trump’s support of an immigration policy which rewarded those who spoke English. Acosta remarked:
“It sounds like you’re trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country.”
Although the White House denied it at the time, Acosta nailed it.
Days after his inauguration, Donald Trump issued an executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. The Muslim Ban was the first major policy Trump enacted rooted in fear and bigotry. His decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is just his latest action marinated in hate.
Twenty-four hours after Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States, protestors marched in the streets of every state in support of equality and against the hate on which our current president founded his political brand. Donald Trump brought the country together… just not in the way he intended.
“A vote for the lesser of two evils, is still evil.” It’s an often repeated line used by third party candidates Gary Johnson, Jill Stein and their supporters to describe 2016’s major party candidates. It’s also incredibly ignorant.
Hillary Clinton is not the lesser of two evils. And she certainly hasn’t earned any comparisons to Donald Trump, a man so evil you can only send him back to the hell he came from by reciting passages from the Necronomicon.
Since last week’s 5-state sweep by Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton on Super Tuesday 3, supporters of Bernie Sanders have reacted on social media in such a way that suggests we may need a stronger word than hyperbole in the national lexicon to describe it.
In their latest attempt to rid the nation of the President’s 2014 immigration executive actions, House Republicans have linked the continued funding of Homeland Security to the defunding of the latest immigration reform. The two parties were clearly not trading heart-shaped candies with loving inscriptions this past Valentine’s Day weekend.
