Word Salad Surgery

You know all those rockin’, awesome, kick-ass words Mister Trump said about immigration?

Well, never mind. It would seem they were actually just “suggestions.”

On the bright side, his campaign appears foursquare in favor of repealing the Law of Identity.

    The thing is, the man is right. The way the constitution is designed, the president needs congressional approval to enact his “suggestions.” Those of us who have been around a while know this. How many times have we believed some of the crap that comes out of the candidates mouth only to have the guy get in office and find out it doesn’t get done. Sure some of it is outright lies, but most of it, for either good or bad, doesn’t happen because congress wouldn’t go along with it. If everything said in a stump speech really happened we would have abolished the IRS, closed Gitmo, stopped giving money to our enemies, ended poverty and homelessness, fixed Social Security, and eradicated pink eye.

    The president isn’t SUPPOSED to be able to decree a free-for-all at the public potties. A fact that this POS….er… POTUS seems to have forgotten

    Maybe the best thing that could happen is to elect Trump and let him and congress take turns yelling “FUCK YOU” at each other for four years, freezing government in it’s tracks and leaving the rest of us along for a while to do what Americans used to do best, and clean up this mess.

    I am so very, very much against Hillary Sanders that I will vote against them the most effective way possible. Even if it turns out to be Trump. At least the people I despise hate him. That’s worth it right there.

    ^ So, yooooooou’re saying it all was just Mister Trump’s inarticulate way of expressing his quasi-understanding of the limits of Presidential power.

    Sorry, I’m not buying it, any more than I buy that “negotiating” a tax cut into a tax hike is “skillful deal making.”

    He’s lurching left in an attempt to co-opt the Bernie Bros and other elements of the Paranoid Left into a ragtag coalition against The Rigged System™. I don’t think he’ll succeed, but the next six months are likely to be… shall we say, surreal.
