Trump Grandstands At Mexican Border

NBC News reports:

Presidential candidate Donald Trump faced questions about immigration policy from reporters Thursday at the U.S.-Mexico border amid roiling controversy about his bombastic style and his controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants. He did not respond to a question from NBC News regarding what he plans to do about the nation’s estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants. “First thing we have to do is strengthen our borders and after that we’ll have plenty of time to talk about it,” he said. Asked if his tour of the border yielded any evidence to support his claim that Mexico is “sending criminals” over the border, Trump promised to produce documentation but offered no details. “We’ll be showing you the evidence,” he said, declining to elaborate.

    It’s insane that this racist man is somehow still in business. Even more surprising is that he’s somehow running for President.

    • oikos

      He’s the perfect repuglican candidate.

      • Bill_Perdue

        All the Democrat and Republican candidates have a racist program regarding immigrant and imported workers. The difference between HRH HRC and the other Republican candidates and Trump is that Trump is an open racist. His open racism puts them on the spot and the one thing that characterizes them is that they don’t want to be exposed as racists.

        The left, which doesn’t include Democrats, proposes full citizenship, dual citizenship if wanted, with no fines or penalties and no waiting periods and an end to Obama’s racist deportations.

        Also we should tax the rich, especially American companies that do business in Latin American, like the Clinton friendly WalMart, at a rate of 100% of profits to rebuild the economies they’ve shattered in Latin America.

        • oikos

          yawn

          • Bill_Perdue

            Democrats, like Republicans, have a racist program for dealing with immigrant workers that consists of fines, penalties, waiting periods and Obama’s racist deportations.

            The oinker likes that.

            Sometimes I vote, but unlike losers like you I only vote for those who oppsoe wars and racism and who support unions.

            Loser party activist squeals, unimportantly and impotently

            On November 8, 2016 vote Socialist or Labor, vote for good referendums and if there aren’t any Left candidates write in Chelsea Manning or join the majority in sitting it out.

            It’s always better not to vote at all than to vote for our enemies, Democrats and Republicans.

          • another_steve

            Oh stop with the “Chelsea Manning write-in” thing, Bill. I wish Chelsea well, but like her brother-jeopardizer-of-American-security, Edward Snowden, she belongs in prison.

            As far as your “Democratic Party / Anti-Union” thing, you know that’s nonsense, I’m sure.

            Unionism here in the U.S. is a direct result of Democratic Party politics and politicians. There wouldn’t be a union movement here in the U.S. were it not for 20th Century Democratic Presidents.

            And you know that, girl.

          • Bill_Perdue

            Then are we to assume that you were drunk when your said that Manning was a traitor who deserved jail time.

            Really, you shouldn’t try to think when you’re soused. The union movement was built by socialists in spite of the efforts of FDR and his successors to destroy us. http://www.themilitant.com/2005/6929/692913.html

            Drunken politics are bad. Bankrupt drunken Democrat politics are much, much worse.

          • another_steve

            You — like ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Iran — hate the U.S. Government, Bill. So of course anyone who the U.S. Government has adjudicated as a traitor (like Chelsea Manning) must be a living saint.

            Bill, get real. Your Socialist Revolution ain’t happenin’ here in the U.S.

            Bernie Sanders, a good and honorable man, is not going to be the next President of the United States — largely because when the average American hears “Socialist,” they think “Communist.”

            During my professional life, I was a pretty high-level PR type working for the U.S. Government. I know a little about communicating effectively with the public.

            Your “Socialist Revolution” here in the States = TOTAL COMMUNICATION FAIL.

          • leastyebejudged

            I’m glad Bill is here to remind us all of the shit we do not want to hear.

            PR is the constant reversion to the lowest common denominator. It’s manipulation. It’s lies.

            You’re so proud of being a major part of the problem. You are scum.

          • Bill_Perdue

            Old habits of lying, especially combined with lots and lots of gin, has that effect on people. I’ll bet he worked for the CIA.

          • Bill_Perdue

            The US government is a tool of the rich and engages in mass murder.

            That’s why you like them and why decent people don’t.

            What rightwing drunks like you are selling is not what people want, which is why you and your party are losers, big time.

          • another_steve

            Just for the record, I’m a “left-of-center drunk,” not a “rightwing drunk.”

            Please, Bill.

            Words matter.

          • Bill_Perdue

            You’re a lying right wing drunk.

        • gaymex

          Man, you are crazy.

          • oikos

            off her meds

          • Bill_Perdue

            Nah. I’m for full rights for immigrant workers and an end to Obama’s mass deportations.

          • Bill_Perdue

            Way aren’t you for full rights for immigrant workers and an end to Obama’s mass deportations?

            What’s wrong with you?

            Don’t bother to answer, it’s perfectly clear that you’re just another tawdry mouthpiece for the racists who run the Democrat/Republican party.

        • another_steve

          Hi Bill 😉 (And yes, I’m drunk.)

          Did you have a nice weekend, girl?

          Pull some wings off some flies?

          Amputate the legs of some neighborhood squirrels?

          • Bill_Perdue

            Democrats are non-political haters.

    Trump Grandstands At Mexican Border – Nooooooooo? LOL

  • Mike in Texas

    Do any of these clowns have a specific plan for “strengthening our border”?

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      I think Mr tRump once said that he will build a Huge and Fantastic giant wall, and make Mexico pay for it.
      lol

      • TampaDink

        It will be YOOJ!!!

    • BobSF_94117

      I think the plan is to throw a few tens of billions at private security companies.

      Should make for some tidy profits.

  • Robincho

    “We’ll be showing you the evidence”? But Donald, we’re still waiting on the “evidence” from your crack team of investigators in Honolulu about Barack’s birth certificate.

    • charemor

      “I have people that have been studying it and they cannot believe what they’re finding,” Trump said

  • GarySFBCN

    The emperor has no hair.

    • John

      Untrue! He has plenty of hair. And he paid plenty for it. (I just feel badly for the shorn beavers.)

    • MattPS

      And as to that “Make America Great Again” slogan that’s gracing his cap, permit me to paraphrase the One and Only Norma Desmond:
      “America IS great. It’s the Republican politicians who got small!”

  • HZ81

    Love the hat. What a winning slogan. Forrest Trump, some of us think America is already great. Problematic, sure, but pretty awesome.

    • Traxley Launderette

      Yes, HZ81. I also love the hat.

      Let us please observe a moment of silence for the hat that gave its life to protect the public at large from yet another photo op featuring Trump’s frayed, wispy fibrous abomination that, for reason that mystifies anthropologists and biologists alike, continues to find sustenance upon the scalp of this belligerent orange humanoid.

    • Bill_Perdue

      America is the greatest country in terms of imperialist mass murder and border racism and that makes you feel all tingly.

      • HZ81

        Boring!!!

        • Bill_Perdue

          Mass murder and racsim bores it. Very typical.

          • HZ81

            No, you do.

          • Bill_Perdue

            Mass murder and racsim bores it. How disgusting.

          • HZ81

            No, Bill. I said you bore me. Again. I’m sure I’m not the only one in your life who has ever said it. I’m sure the reflection in your mirror does so every single day.

            You’re a troll. Accept it.

          • Bill_Perdue

            Trolls are people like you who pretend not to be for wars of aggression, attacks on unions and the Bill of Rgiths and border racism but pretend otherwise and prove it by voting Democrat.

  • M. Coen

    I find it difficult to believe that the mayor and city manager of Laredo were that pleased to see Trump. I wonder how much he paid them?

    • TampaDink

      Or threatened to sue them for.

  • another_steve

    Can you imagine the mental fucked-upness of the Hispanic people Trump’s people find to stage behind Trump at his photo-ops?

    • TampaDink

      If he was paying $50 a pop to attend his announcement, I imagine that the brown folks who stood within a mile of him are also going to get some cash out of this.

  • oikos

    Trump is popular across the border as well………………………at birthday parties.

    http://remezcla.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/pinata-trump-378×280.jpg

    • gaymex

      Not just at birthday parties. He is so hated here.

  • TampaDink

    I hope that he took the opportunity to yell across the border for the Mexicans to get busy building the wall that he suggested earlier that they will do at his command.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    This is hilarious !!

    tRump; ” I Received such great warmth at the airport. ”

    Reporter ” They were chanting against you ”

    tRump : ” No, they were chanting FOR me.

    Reporter ” there were plenty chanting against you ”

    tRump : ” No, I didn’t see them ”

    lol ha ha ha

    • Mike in Texas

      Well duh … it’s hot in Laredo during July.

    • TexasBoy

      What about “Smiling Bob” from the erectile dysfuntion Enzyte supplement commercials?

    • You forgot the pork product from Canada via Texas.

  • another_steve

    He did a little “off-camera” chatting at the beginning of that, with someone we couldn’t see, while his mike was on.

    That he does that sort of thing is good. It reflects a bit of carelessness on his part.

    He’ll get caught saying something really really racist or the like, eventually. I mean REALLY RACIST. With the mike on.

    Wait for it.

  • TexasBoy

    “We’ll be showing you the evidence,” he said, declining to elaborate.

    Pulled the same stunt claiming to have evidence that Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii, don’t hold your breath waiting for his evidence to actually physically materialize.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      In a few weeks his answer will be, “That’s old news. You’re wasting everyone’s time. Nobody’s interested in that any more.”

    • Yes, example #2,542,871 of Trump being a transparent bullshitter. And supporters will still call him “a truth teller.”

  • tcinsf

    “we’ll be showing you the evidence.” Where have I heard this before…. didn’t it have something to do with someone’s birth certificate?

  • JT
  • bambinoitaliano

    Evidence just like his none existing bone spur that allow him to dodge military recruitment?

  • Octavio

    Too bad Trump is so hated. Otherwise he could have made a quick trip across the border to visit Boys Town for the afternoon. 🙂

  • Jack_Carter_USA

    Will that “evidence” be delivered before or after he finally gets around to saying what his “investigators” (whom he claimed to have sent to Hawaii years ago in search of Obama’s birth certificate) supposedly couldn’t believe they found?

  • BudClark

    Maybe that’s a long-haired chihuahua on his head after all.

    • It’s whispering “You can do it!” in its best Rob Schneider impersonation.

  • Happy Dance

    Too bad the murderous criminalistic drug cartels were not there with them there-ah shot guns we gived em!!

  • Ginger Snap

    American politics has now become season 3 of the Real World. Trump the shitbagger leading the Tbaggers.

  • A Big Sarcastic Fairy!

    Well at least he is wearing a hat to hid that hideous gerbil that lives on his head.
