President Psychopath

This is immoral as fuck:
President Donald Trump suggested Saturday that he is using his administration's separation of families at the US border as a negotiating tool to get Democrats to cave on his immigration demands, which include funding for a border wall, curbing legal immigration into the US, and tightening the rules for border enforcement.
He proclaims that he "hates" to do it, but he's going to continue to rip families apart until he gets his way.

That is reprensible at best. Trump is an inhuman monster. Those who are "only following orders" are proving that in this century, "good little Americans" will be a long-standing epithet.

This is from the Book of Face:
“Through all the adversities we faced last evening with computer outages, cancellations and delays, nothing prepared me or my crew for 16 passengers. Sixteen. All dressed in black and gray cheap Walmart sweat suits, quietly boarding the 12:30am flight.

Children! Thirty-two scared eyes looking straight forward dazed. We try to speak, yet none speak English.

During the beverage service, one of the crew comes to me in tears. They can’t face these children that have been ripped from their families with a smile.

These children were probably ranging in age from 11, to the most adorable little girl maybe 6 years old. At 2:30 in the morning, deplaned here in Miami not knowing if they will ever see their loved ones again that they were separated from in Phoenix.

Those sweet innocent children, dressed as criminals silently deplaned with the same fear as our initial meeting. Except for the little girl. She looked up at me as she turned left for the main cabin door, with tears of fear streaming down her face. I’m not sure the protocol, but I leaned over hoping to offer some hope, she hugged me, which was returned - much to the scowl and comments from the adult escort.

I pray that these 16 scared little souls, as well as all the other thousands, find their way to reuniting with their loved ones.

We are trained yearly in hundreds of possible scenarios as attendants. Something like this isn’t remotely one of those. I had only met one of my crew a few years earlier, the rest never. Thank God, we had one another to lean on to not only get through the flight, but also maybe some glimmer of hope for those babies.”

This cartoon got Rob Rodgers fired from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

This is on point:

As is this:

Republicans, this is your guy. You are the ones who are best placed to voice disapproval and to vote for people who are not going to slavishly fall in line behind Caudillo Trumpo.

Republicans: Are you going to continue to be good little Americans, or are you going to take a stand?

If you don't, then this is on you. You will not be able to truthfully claim that you did not know the horrors that were being done in your name.

It’s too late for most Republicans. They sat and remained quiet for the first violations, showboating, demands and shit. The second was a little more, but, hey, we sat before. This has continued, and I fear will end one of two ways...the Republican party gets eviscerated in the election in 2018 and/or 2020 or the Democratic Party fails to shake the Republican leadership in the elections and Donnie gets re-elected with support In the House and/or Senate.

Why do I fear both these, because, as we are seeing, a government buy a single party, without any opposition, is not democracy nor democratic. I hope and pray the remaining honest and true Republicans will finally stand up, but I am afraid that the Republic is now on borrowed time.

At least they're not invoking Psalm 137:9.

*Trump should have his citizenship revoked and then tossed out of the country. His adult children should be ripped away from him hopefully through convictions and jail time. Melania's weak kneed response earns her a plane trip to Novo Mesto, Slovenia. No doubt she would change her last name back to Knavs in disgrace. All the money? Give it to charities across the US, starting with Puerto Rico.

Seems no one in the current administration knows the meaning of disgrace. Especially that tool, Stephen Miller. Fucking Fascists.
