Today in Post-Reality America

Now that enough people have come out against the evil new policy to separate all migrant children from their parents to be returned by ????????, Donald Trump is pretending that it's not a policy he championed and is saying that Democrats did it even though it is 100% a Republican policy to be enforced via ICE which was created during the George W. Bush era.

But who cares what's real? Lord Dampnut can say anything and get away with it. His followers will believe it and repeat it even though it completely contradicts things he just said like, a couple days ago.

Oh and also this thing he's said at pretty much the exact same time:

Trump on Abused Immigrant Children: "They're Not Innocent"

The context makes this one worse.

“We have the worst immigration laws of any country, anywhere in the world,” Trump said at the roundtable held at the Morrelly Homeland Security Center. “They exploited the loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors.” 
Trump added: “They look so innocent. They’re not innocent.”

So little children are conspiring to enter the U.S. as little children so they can commit crimes later. That is what Trump is saying here. They're not little kids doing what their parents/other adults tell them to do or just fleeing for their lives to a place that we keep saying is the best country in the world. They're "exploiting loopholes." Like 5-year-old kids do. Exploit legal loopholes.

And because laws that protect people from being kicked out of the country when they were brought here as little kids, which Trump has been attacking, are "legal loopholes" and not the most basic level of human decency.

Fuck Trump and fuck everyone who voted for him.
