Another Thing Ballyhooed by Trump Flops; ICE, ICE, Baby

More than 2,000 migrants who were in the United States illegally were targeted in widely publicized raids that unfolded across the country last week. But figures the government provided to The New York Times on Monday show that just 35 people were detained in the operation.
ICE set out to arrest 2,105 people and found 35. That's a 1.66% success rate.

Pro tip: If you're going out to arrest some guy, you don't tell him that you're coming by to snap on the bracelets and when.

The raids were a farce. They were always going to be a farce, a Potemkin-show, ginned up by El Caudillo de Mar-a-Lago and his faithful lacky, Gruppenfuhrer Miller

Heckovajob, Donnie.

Any and everything to distract from the Epstein case. I can only imagine there will be more and more major distractions by Donny Dollhands in the coming months.

They did, on the other hand, sow anxiety and discord among the communities he has targeted for hatred, so he probably sees it as a win, and a cheap one at that, that doesn't degrade the media usefulness of his racist ambitions.

For another failure, check out the “Great Seal of the United States” displayed behind Donnie at a recent Talking Point youth summit. A two-headed eagle, clutching golf clubs? LOL.

Even better, the motto over that Russian-inspired eagle read, in Spanish, "45 is a puppet."

Sharp eyes, unlike Donnie and his puppets. Willing to bet the Secret Service noticed?

Got a better look...don’t forget the five Hammer and Sickles in place of Stars on the Shield, plus the wad of money in the other talon in place of the Olive Branch. It’s a magnificent parody, and they say it was simply the result of a “hurried online search”...yea, right!

That seal came from the "One Term Donnie" website, where you can buy it on a tee shirt described as follows:

"A hybrid of the official Seal of the President of the United States and the Coat of Arms of the Russian Federation, this design perfectly encapsulates Donnie's contributions to the highest office in the land. Other notable modifications include:

Little Don Don's child size set of golf clubs for those tiny hands
A wad of money, likely gained through shady means
Latin has been replaced with Spanish for '45 is a Puppet'"

As to how it appeared on a screen behind him while he spoke for more than an hour, I don't know, but I would imagine a president with as famously thin of skin as him would have better advance work than that, but perhaps that would require competence on some level or other.
