Trump is about to walk into the Roosevelt Room, insert his tiny pinky fingers into the corners of his butthole-like mouth, stretch his lips, stick out his tongue and shout “OOGA BOOGA” while using his index fingers and thumbs to stretch the raccoon-like white bands of fatty flesh around his beady eyes to make his eyeballs bulge out. I’m not making this up:
President Donald Trump on Thursday will highlight immigration as a “crisis” facing the nation, making remarks from the Roosevelt Room of the White House before he travels to Columbia, Missouri, for another campaign rally, the second of 11 he plans in a last-minute blitz before Election Day on Tuesday.
At the White House, Trump will speak about “the illegal immigration crisis and give an update on border security,” according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
The president’s remarks come as he has called for restricting asylum requests, ending birthright citizenship and sending thousands of additional troops to border as a caravan of migrants makes its way toward the United States from Central America.
There is no goddamned illegal immigration “crisis,” of course (and kudos for the scare quotes, ABC News). This is pure racist demagoguery, and it would be laughable if the racist demagogue in question didn’t command a large standing army and have the allegiance of millions of idiot citizens. I’m not streaming the “remarks” here because fuck that guy.
I hope this shit blows up in Trump’s ugly face in a big way, and I think there’s a chance it could, especially in places like Florida, where this kind of absurd performance art underscores the GOP’s racism and xenophobia problems.
