Who wore it best?
So it has come to this.
The legislation that allows children of refugees illegally entering America to be separated from their parents has been on the books since W Bush but neither Bush nor Obama seriously considered implementing the policy because the mere thought of the images of screaming children separated from their parents was considered political suicide.
Not so for Trump.
The decision to go full blown Israeli on children at the border was a hardline position Trump decided to endorse because he believes the deep resentment he plumbs the depths of for power will see those screaming children and not blame Trump, but the parents who have brought them.
The policy itself is cruel and pointless. People fleeing the abortion of South America’s various American corrupted basket case economies and societies are prepared to risk unspeakable danger to get to America, punishing desperate people by taking their children from them won’t deter their desperation, merely exacerbate it.
But Trump knows that, and he doesn’t care.
The days get darker, the solutions more vicious.
Trump’s crypto-facsism becomes less crypto by the passing month.
