Trump's Hot Air Balloon Is Ripping

Donald Trump's supporters can pretend otherwise, but deep down they must know the truth: Trump has been playing them for fools all along.

     All that bluster about creating a "deportation force" to round up 11 million undocumented immigrants and kick them out of the country? Forget about it. Trump is now "softening" that ridiculous pledge, which he could never have carried out, into a new policy in which "we work with them."

Attempts by allies to explain the complete reversal have been comic. My favorite came from Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, who said this on CNN: "He hasn't changed his position on immigration, he's changed the words that he is saying."

Trump continues to claim that, if elected president, he will build a wall along the entire southern border and get Mexico to pay for it. This, too, would be logistically and politically impossible, but I believe he'll keep saying it until the bitter end. He seems to think he can get away with betraying supporters on the deportation issue by hiding behind his "artistically beautiful" imaginary wall.

In a sense, spokeswoman Pierson was right: Trump doesn't actually have positions. He only has words.

     There is anger, bigotry and ignorance behind many of those words. But mostly, where substance ought to be found, there is just arrogance and ego. Trump thinks his supporters are suckers who will line up to buy deportation one day and amnesty the next. Some champion.

      I’m glad you had your laugh for the day. But the fact is, we will be much better off with Clinton as president than with Trump, especially if the Democrats can take the Senate. Gary Johnson would be even better, but since he can’t win, Hillary will get my vote. Because voting for Johnson would favor Trump.

        I’m sorry, but really, are you serious or just hitting on some weed with Gary Johnson?
