Some people — dumb ones, I suppose — are confused about GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's extremely fantastic immigration reform plan.
While he built his campaign around the idea of deporting the roughly 11 million immigrants believed to be in the country illegally, certain crybabies in the media now say Trump is "softening" his stance.
As a huge Trump supporter — probably the hugest — I was shocked to wake up Monday morning and see the hashtag #AmnestyDon riding the top of Twitter's trending topics. Turns out MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, a noted loser who I'm told has terrible ratings because everyone hates him, got that term rolling.
"For 14 months, Amnesty Don has been putting illegal immigration at the center of Amnesty Don's campaign," Scarborough said on Monday's "Morning Joe." "And yet nobody in Amnesty Don's own campaign can tell you what Amnesty Don's position is."
What kind of a jerk comes up with a smart-aleck nickname for a presidential candidate? That's something Crooked Hillary would do.
Apparently some (dumbs) are interpreting a few comments Trump (smartly) made over the past week.
On Fox News he said he would work with law-abiding immigrants who paid taxes. And he said of his nonsoftening plans to deport all 11 million unauthorized immigrants, "There certainly can be a softening because we're not looking to hurt people."
Those comments may sound strange to Trump fans who were excited at the notion of some mild immigrant hurting. After all, he had previously proposed a "deportation force" and said flatly that anyone in the country illegally has to go.
But I assure you, Trump is not wavering a bit on his clearly defined immigration plans. Don't let recent headlines like these fool you:
"Donald Trump's immigration stance changes again."
"Mike Pence defends Donald Trump's immigration flip-flop."
"Ann Coulter fumes as Donald Trump floats massive immigration flip-flop."
And don't let the fact that Trump's main surrogates spent Sunday on the cable news shows dodging questions about the candidate's immigration policy make you think there is a lick of confusion.Read the rest of Rex Huppke's op-ed HERE.
