Hats Afire

From npr:

Conservatives are livid after President Trump appeared to have made a deal with Democrats in order to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program — claiming he is abandoning his base and the stringent immigration platform he campaigned on.

Commentator Ann Coulter went on a Twitter tirade Thursday, furious that the president appeared to be reneging on his trademark border wall. “Put a fork in Trump, he’s dead,” the outspoken author and once-fervent Trump ally wrote“At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?”

To Coulter and others, Trump’s ultimate betrayal came after he met with Democratic congressional leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to try to save the so-called DREAMers who now face the possibility of deportation after Trump’s decision last week to rescind the program put in place by his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.

Democrats on Wednesday night said the deal they made with Trump didn’t include funding for Trump’s border wall.

Amid the backlash, Trump insisted to reporters, “We’re not looking at citizenship. We’re not looking at amnesty. We’re looking at allowing people to stay here.”

Ultimately, the specter of a deal on immigration with “Chuck and Nancy” — after caving last week on the debt ceiling and government funding, over the objections of GOP congressional leaders — seemed to be the final straw for many.

“This is not what we voted for,” conservative radio host Laura Ingraham said on her program. “We voted for someone who could do a good deal for the American man and woman.”

Late Wednesday night after news of the deal broke, Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity seemed to suggest Trump had been duped by Pelosi and Schumer, but that if he capitulated, it would be “over” for him.

…snip…

Breitbart News’ website — run by Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon — blasted out headlines like “Trump Caves on DACA, Wants ‘Quick’ Amnesty for 800K Illegal Aliens” and “Families of Illegal Alien Murder Victims Confused, Angered by Possible DACA Deal.” It also highlighted a trending topic on Twitter: #AmnestyDon.

On Breitbart’s daily Sirius XM show, Tea Party Patriots leader Jenny Beth Martin said that if a deal does go through, Trump is no different from his despised former rival.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, one of the most outspoken anti-immigration members of Congress, immediately blasted the reports of a deal on DACA on Twitter Wednesday night, saying that if that reports were true, the president had lost all credibility.

    I love wingnut-on-wingnut warfare! They chose an incompetent con man with no principles as their leader — time for them to face the consequences.

  2. My humble opinion is that Model had a moment of weakness and did the right thing. I can not begin to imagine what chaos would ensure if the US were to deport these people who were brought to the states by relatives. This was not of their choosing and as a child you go where you family takes you. There is no choice in the matter.

    Trumpettes have no scruples and will continue to mouth off when they should be keeping their traps shut. All they care about is so called “party values” which translates into screw the poor, the homeless and the disabled and to hell with the Mexicans.

    As for Coulter she has to be the most vile, mouthy. disgusting woman that I have not had the pleasure of seeing on TV. I can’t take more than 30 seconds of her abrasive personality. She is filled with hate and full of herself.

    I can’t really applaud Model (I will say he did a good thing) but I have to wonder what prompted his decision other than looking forward to getting the Hispanic vote in 2020.

    • Twitler has nothing but moments of weakness. He has no true convictions, and he is not smart enough to get anything done on his own. His accomplishments (the few that there are) are a result of the work of the people around him, never a result of his own ideas or efforts. He’s a stupid fucking loser who had the good luck to be born into a wealthy family. Same for his shitty offspring.

  3. Friend of the court

    very hard to understand, how anyone could have believed that Trump has credibility to lose. Mr King is a very dumb ass.
