Trump Blames Schumer For Manhattan Terror Attack (Lottery System Was Signed Into Law By GHW Bush)

Deadline reports:

President Donald Trump watched Fox & Friends Wednesday morning to get his early briefing on the latest about the previous night’s terror attack in lower Manhattan that left eight dead.

In his morning tweets, Trump blamed the Senate’s top Democrat Chuck Schumer for the attack, pushed Trump’s immigration agenda, and twice plugged his pals at Fox News Channel’s morning show.

Schumer was instrumental in crafting the lottery program nearly 30 years ago, off of which a broader immigration bill passed on a bipartisan vote and was signed into law by a Republican POTUS, as other TV news pundits noted Wednesday morning.

    Who the fuck believes any of his plans are going to get smarter? Every one of his schemes should have Acme stamped on the side of it.

  • ChrisInKansas

    Why can’t lying be just cause for impeachment????

    • Tawreos

      There would be no government left if lying led to dismissal

      • lymis

        Can we just try it once? Please?

    • ted-

      That’s how Clinton was impeached, but the laws don’t apply to GOP

  • DaddyRay

    Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club is seeking to hire 15 housekeepers, 20 cooks and 35 servers foreign workers under the H-2B visa program.

    • Tawreos

      That is not the same thing, those people save him money.

      • DaddyRay

        Because we just can’t get that kind of skilled labor here

        • Snarkaholic

          I applied there…but, during my audition, failed to incinerate the steak sufficiently to his liking (apparently, 3 weeks in a 900F. oven wasn’t enough(!), so I didn’t get the job.

          • Tom Williams

            You might have salvaged the audition if you had smothered it with ketchup?

    • lymis

      And, they won’t earn enough money to rent trucks, or have enough time off to drive them into crowds. So that keeps us all safe.

      • DaddyRay

        The most important qualification is they have to keep their mouth shut and not complain about being mistreated or he gets to send them back

  • FAEN

    You fucking moron-if it was merit based your relatives wouldn’t be here. Think about that.

    • clay

      think? Trump?

      • FAEN

        Gimme a break-coffee hasn’t quite gotten to my brain as yet lol.

        • clay

          I wish Turmp had that excuse, but this is his highest engagement level.

          • FAEN

            I know what you mean matey. And it’s scary and sad considering the POTUS we could have had and the POTUS we DID have.

    • JCF

      Only Tiffany, among his kids.

      • FAEN

        Yep-she seems to be the most grounded of them all.

  • AJ Drew

    I so hope Mueller has a fully planned an… ti… ci….pation…

  • shellback

    Every morning I check the news to see if this absurd moron fell down an escalator and succumbed to his incredibly-painful injuries. I’m always disappointed.

  • Rex

    How about electing a “Merit Based” president?

    • FAEN

      But but isn’t electing the POTUS you’d like to have a burst steak with ketchup more important than being competent?

    • Gerry Fisher

      zzzzzz-ING!

  • DaddyRay

    Because remember people, when someone else is President and there is an attack it is the Presidents fault but when Trump is President it is someone else’s fault

  • Rex

    Trump will blame a Democrat for anything – facts be damned.

  • Terry Teeter

    Fat. Lying. Fucking. Pig.

  • clay

    He has an actual world-class briefing available every morning, but goes after yesterday’s pap, instead.

    • Joe in PA

      Pssst: Fox and Friends is easier for him to understand.

      • David Walker

        And it has pictures and lots of happy talk.

  • lymis

    It’s really simple. We let only good people into the country, and keep the bad people out. How hard is that?

    headdesk

  • Tawreos

    Should he really be messing with Schumer considering Schumer must have god-like powers to be able to craft a bill and force both houses to pass it and a president to sign it?

    • Leo

      This is a base shore-up, plain and simple.

      • Tawreos

        If only there was a way to make those poor bastards think about what he is saying instead of just swallowing what he gives them.

    • gaycuckhubby

      Logic is not the shitgibbons strong suit

  • TheGrandWazoo2

    If other countries applied the same vetting standards to Trump as he wants to apply to them, nobody would let him in.

    • OdieDenCO

      donny doesn’t want to let anyone in and beauregard doesn’t want to let anyone out

  • Leo

    Trump isn’t a “merit-based” businessman, his personality aside. His Dad bailed him out twice.

    There was no indicator of the man’s terror ties. If this isn’t the most bald-faced evidence of his racism other than “look at my African-American” I don’t know what is.

  • Leo
    • Joe in PA

      I’m sure Fox and Friends will inform their viewers about this.

      • Karl Dubhe

        They have, and the Russian bots are posting bullshit there too.

        Twitter is a sewer.

        • Joe in PA

          I hear ya, but I was actually referring to Schumer’s rebuttal. Trump learned this shit originally from Fox. Ugh.

          • Karl Dubhe

            I think Trump learned this shit from the horse’s arse himself; Roy Cohn.

            Who also taught it to Ailles and the shits who run Fox. 🙁

            I’m glad that my parents didn’t live to see this bullshit. (again, that is. edited)

  • joeyj1220

    Please Mr. Mueller… hurry

  • lymis

    If citizenship is merit-based, can we deport our own citizens who aren’t working out?

    Like the whole Trump family?

    • David L. Caster

      And the 60 plus million that voted for a con man. Question is who would want them.

      • Beagle

        I’m sure there are some deserted islands around.

        • David L. Caster

          Yeah, the ones that are just a few inches above sea level.

  • AJ Drew

    What will it take for the at-large GOP to say, “DT, I’m givin’ up on you.” ?

    • Joe in PA

      I’m not sure I want to know. 🙁

      BTW, I like your avatar.

  • greenmanTN

    Please. If Trump’s own life were merit based he’d be selling vinyl siding in Paramus, but only on his 2nd bankruptcy.

    • AJ Drew

      *Second* bankruptcy?

      • greenmanTN

        Yeah. No banks would have given him credit for the subsequent bankruptcies so he’d only be on his 2nd.

  • Bluto

    So what of American problems, say a person with the ability to shoot 600 people in a few minutes?

    Winners of the Diversity Lottery do not get an automatic grant of entry into the United States. What they win is an opportunity to apply to enter. They must still meet all other the legal requirements, such as a clean criminal record, no ties to terrorism or drug trafficking, and other applicable provisions of immigration law.

    • Bluto

      facts schmacts. what are ya, a commie?

  • ceeenbee

    Okay.

    Let’s start with extreme vetting angry, old, white, sociopathic, millionaire, shitgibbon supporters like stephen paddock in Las Vegas.

    Oh! I forgot. We would have to extreme vet the shitgibbon himself and throw him out of the country, as opposed to throwing him in jail where he and his crime family belong.

  • TuuxKabin

    could we have merit based presidents as well?

    • edrex

      brilliant!

      • TuuxKabin

        I think Rex, also posted the same comment further down. The great mind syndrome thing, pre coffee no less. But, thanks. I THINK, you’re getting a Halloween card in the mail . . . 026 part of your zipper?

        • edrex

          no. but i don’t want to miss out. how might i contact you?

    • Daveed_WOW

      No. Apparently we can’t.

  • joe ho

    Trump and GOP are much better at politics and messaging than the Dems. Lies and distortions work. Murikans are easily manipulated.

    GOP has been so successful at demonizing liberals and Democrats that Dems can take power only after the GOP has burned everything to the ground as in 2008.

    Nothing like the 24/7 Fox News right-wing talk radio propaganda machine exists on the left. And the results are clear. 75% of state governments are in GOP control. Not to mention the entire Fed government.

    • Longpole

      So true, but the Dems will luck out again with another market “burn down” coming soon. Warren Buffet says we are at a market top. His historical view says we are just weeks away from a stock market crash. This will be a game changer if he is right.

  • Bambino

    Instead of acting presidential, comforting the Americans, this liddle man just point fingers at everyone else. You wonder why his children all turn up to be liars. Who wants to admit wrong doing when the first thing he does is to look for scapegoat? What a fucking moron!

    • Did he do any comforting? Did I miss it?

      • Bambino

        Ask his children. I’m sure none of them except Ivanka ever get any comforting from the fucking moron. Even with Ivanka his motivation is more of a sexual predator than a doting father.

        • Oh, I was talking about those folks that were ran over in NYC. Sorry, I wasn’t the least bit clear.

          • Bambino

            Still with 5 Argentinians and one Belgian as the victims, just not enough of Americans for him to offer the gesture. I’m sure he is still gun shy from the last time when he open his big mouth to offer a soldier’s family $25K and reneged on it. No telling what empty promises he will have to make good should he speaks to the families of victims in New York.

  • gaycuckhubby

    Its one thing to go after the program. But despicable to blame an individual

  • GeneInSJ

    Cheeto LaTweety was probably thrilled with this as both a diversion from the criminal investigations AND a chance to blame Democrats. What a sick bastard…

  • TexasBoy

    So, who is Colonel Tony Shaffer and how does he feel about Trump specifically naming him in a tweet? Active duty? Retired? Does dissing a Senator break military protocol?

    • Tomcat

      Don’t know but trump is trying to force ALL retired officers to come back and serve at his pleasure.

  • GayOldLady

    How about a “Merit Based” Presidency? If we had that we wouldn’t have you, President Nincompoop.

  • Daveed_WOW

    Just a little red meat. The cheap cuts.

  • Tomcat

    His idea of merit based is they must be rich first.

    • TuuxKabin

      Here’s his idea of “merit-based”:

      On Saturday afternoon, Mr. Kushner’s sister Nicole Meyer made a pitch to attract $150 million in financing for a Jersey City housing development, known as One Journal Square, to more than 100 Chinese investors gathered at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Beijing.

      The money would be provided through a much-criticized government program known as EB-5 that awards foreign investors a path to citizenship in exchange for investments of at least $500,000 in American development projects. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/06/world/asia/jared-kushner-sister-nicole-meyer-china-investors.html

      • David L. Caster

        So if $=speech then why not $=merit. This is the US after all.

        /s

    • And white!

  • Halou

    Does being a soft-core porn actress / prostitute count as “merit” or can we deport Melania and her children to Slovenia? Something about not wanting to “import Europe’s problems”.
