    Anyone with half of a sense of humor can see that President Trump enjoys trolling the Democrats and fake news.

    The reactions of the Democrats and the fake news are also predictable based on the Presidential troll; Consider the recent revelation concerning “sending released illegal aliens to sanctuary cities” that President Trump mentioned months ago. After the usual cacophony of noise from the left in rejecting President Trumps statement – they don’t want illegal aliens being sent to their sanctuary cities while they accuse President Trump with the usual worn out accusations of racism and xenophobia. This reaction prompted the President to tweet "
    Strongly Looking' at Releasing Migrants in Dem Cities".

    The left wing reaction to the Presidential troll was closer to a tantrum than it was to a thoughtful response.


    The left wingers created sanctuary cities as an “in your face” to the Presidents attempts to control the flow of illegals into the United States and the attempts of ICE to round up and deport the illegals. They regularly troll the President for the need of these sanctuaries to protect the illegals from Presidential over-kill, They want to protect the illegals until the President suggests he might start sending illegals to those places that want to protect illegals. Then, any thought of illegal aliens being sent to their towns is violently rejected.

    The Democrat leaders can’t figure out how foolish their reactions appear to the general public. Consider the claims the Mayor of Oakland made that her city is safer with illegal aliens, yet she squawked among the loudest in rejecting the idea of more illegals being sent to Oakland. A ditto for Nancy Pelosi who supports San Francisco’s sanctuary city status while following the Mayor of Oakland in her outright rejection of taking in more illegals. What’s the problem with a few more illegal crapping on the sidewalks and assaulting American citizens.

    The hypocrisy and NIMBYism (Not In My Back Yard) of the left is astounding.

    If the left wingers and their fake news sycophants kept their yaps shut, no one would care. But like a child having a tantrum, they can’t help themselves – Trump taunts them and they react like a bunch of spoiled, half witted children crying and screaming like it’s the end of the world.

    I used to hold many of these Democrats in high esteem – but their actions since Trump was elected tells me that there are no adults left in the room.

    DUH!!!Sanctuary cities began in 1979 with Los Angeles, long before Dirty Donald and his racism and xenophobia.

    No, there are no adults in the White House. Trump has the mentality of a six year old schoolyard bully, and about that level of knowledge.;

    He is exactly what he looks like, a spoiled rich kid who was handed everything he has and stil has a giant chip on his shoulder. He’s a man child.

    Anyone with any brains at all ought to know better than to see this as just one big game of Trump and his flat earth base giving the world the finger for no good reason than it soothes their resentment.

    But apparantly not. Once we take out all the code words, idiotic memes and name calling, that’s just about all that’s left.

    This is not a reality TV show. Even if you and Donald Trump think it is.

    I’m not going to bother. Besides, I doubt that there’s anything to it.

    Trump is diddling the white resentment of his base. And judging by your post, he hit his mark.

    It's the Romans and the lions. It's a fetish. It's a child torturing a small animal. It's the same thrill some people get from seeing someone beat to death.

    I wouldn’t go as far as the say that.

    However, this is not the first Trumpster post that boiled Trumpterism down to this sort of “take this job and shove it”, “born loser” sort of thinking.

    I really do think that many of these people actually believe that they’re informed because some right wing ex disc jockey bellows spin and resentment at them all day long.

    I get regularly attacked by right wingers for describing their media that way.

    But, ironically, not too many weeks ago, one of them asked an open ended question about where people got their “news’. One after another, all the Trumpsters listed the right wing trash blogs and AM right wing talk radio shows, that they all vigorously denied getting their news from to me.

    I wasn’t surprised at this at all. Abject hypocracy is a core value in the reactionary right. And being informed is something to be avoided. Indeed, between the rampant anti intellectualism you see all the time here, the appeals to fear and ignorance, I expected it.

    I don’t think its’ torturing small animals or anything like that.

    I thinks it’s a lot of ordinary people, who are ordinarily well meaning in their daily lives, who have been consuming this toxic soup for three decades. A soup that speaks directly to the fears, xenphobia and fear of forces they don’t understand, and aren’t actually going to make much effort to learn about,

    At least, not as long as there is a man in their AM radio, or on one TV channel with a few simple slogans that fit their world view, and a few villians (real or imaginary) to point to, they generally stop there.

    As an influencer on the conduct of a world power, it is a formula for weakness, dissipation and decadence.

    And Donald Trump is a poster child for all of these things.

    American like to think of themselves as the home of the free and the brave.

    But when freedom is boiled down to nothing more than guns, and chest beating an jingoism are substituted for courage, it’s no wonder that a weak little bully is a hero to some.

    You're correct - my bad. Sanctuary cities for Illegal aliens was started in Berkley, California in the 80's in response to the rounding up and deportations of illegals. However, since President Trump was elected President, sanctuary cities have mushroomed. Your post ignores the reactions of the various Democrat leaders as they bend over backwards to prevent the federal government from sending illegal aliens to their communities. They want to keep open borders that allow the free flow of illegal aliens, illegal drugs and weapons, and human trafficking. And then they say they don't want these criminals in their communities. What complete hypocrisy!

    By the way, the lying Democrat politicians and fake news say crime statistics are down in sanctuary cities while never mentioning that actual crime is way up! They ignore the fact that prosecutions are way down because the illegal aliens are released before they go to court where ICE can arrest and deport them.

    Meanwhile the hate-Trump brigade is posting it's usual garbage such as "Trump has the mentality of a six year old schoolyard bully," or "Anyone with any brains at all ought to know better than to see this as just one big game of Trump and his flat earth base giving the world the finger for no good reason than it soothes their resentment." or "Trump is diddling the white resentment of his base. And judging by your post, he hit his mark."

    Not one of these posters refuted the OP in any way, because they can't deny the facts that Democrat leadership and their fake news lap dogs don't want illegal aliens in their neighborhoods - preferring instead to flood conservative states with the drugs,disease, crime and human misery represented by the open borders policies of these America-phobic Democrats

    What I'm most amazed at is the groundless accusations these factions hurl at the President as they ignore their own violent and demeaning words hurled at the President and his supporters.

    I've seen no KKK, but I have seen plenty of Antifa
    I've seen no right wing racism, but I see plenty of left wing race hypocrisy
    I've seen some right wing political violence, but it pales in comparison to the near daily assaults of left wingers against the right wing.
    I don't know of any crime ridden GOP cities while I recognize that Democrat cities are segregated, crime infested and intolerant bastions of failed policies and opportunities denied.

    BTW, have you seen Cher's comments about illegals being bussed to her community? She said ""I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can't Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,"
    Cher sounds like a Trump supporter.

    As far as being informed, you do realize this is a play out of Obama’s play book? He was first to weaponize movements of illegals. I’m sure you knew this just failed to include it because it doesn’t fit your narrative. Right?

    Well if you're not going to bother, I will.

    Its because many of them are a drain on the communities in which they are placed.

    Unless you can offer a better reason why sanctuary cities aren't enthusiastic about getting more illegals?

    That's exactly what Trump was doing when he said he knew nothing about WikiLeaks, and of course the MSM took the treble hook all the way down in the gut.

    You don't see the difference between providing protection or 'sanctuary' to those who are already a part of the community, versus the ability to accept throngs of new folks because of a spiteful tantrum?

    Anyone with a sense of patriotism understands the President should represent all U.S. Citizens and govern accordingly. What he and some posters on this site think is that it is his job to put down, disparage and punish those that disagree. When President Trump was elected I thought that a step away from politics as usual might be good for this country. We did take several steps, all in the wrong direction. Running this country is not a joke, so I will have to agree with the original premise. We need more adults.

    You're right, the President should represent all Americans. If the Americans he represents are split on policies such as Open Borders, he should represent the constituency that elected him which means NO open borders and NO illegal aliens. As far as Trumps demeanor - he's a fighter with the personality of a construction worker; he doesn't turn the other cheek - and he does enjoy trolling the left wing - and we all must admit, the antics contained within the Democrat responses are hilarious; look at the continuing tantrums the Democrats are having because Trump wants to send people needing sanctuary to sanctuary cities - which would appear to be a win-win; but maybe not.

    Yup - no adults in the room. Time for Romney or Nikki Haley to take Drama Queen Trtump out in the primaries.

    Hell, Trump chased away the guy on his staff who got him his one win on tax reform - Cohen.

    Aside from the fact that this isn't even really a serious threat - that it has been a ridiculous diversionary tactic for Trump - the idea that the Righties on this board are supporting his threat...giving free transportation for illegals to a place in America...is unbelievably telling. Where is the 'wall at all costs' chant? Where is the concern for the country's safety? What about the national cost?

    Representing all citizens means you can't promotes ideas that you support, because others disagree with them?

    Yes, an adult in the oval office would realize that trolling the political opposition, and American fellow citizens, or playing reality show games with people's lives would not be befitting the office they hold.

    There is no one calling for open borders almost all Americans are looking to improve immigration problems they just disagree about how we should proceed. The open borders argument is just another way to avoid governance, avoid discussion and to blame others. He was not elected to troll anyone he was elected to govern. It is time he curbed his mean spirited "sense of humor" and did his job, after all he claims to be a great deal maker. He should try to make a deal.

    If you weren’t serious I would think this is a joke especially comparing us to children having a tantrum when you have an orange jerk in the White House who has daily tantrums and shares that with everyone using vulgarities and childish names. And only a fool says Trump’s taunts are a good thing...And he deliberately talks to his base like they are children and they act appropriately repeating stupid things like fake news when they’re reporting trumps actual words and deeds.. You see immigrants as pawns to be played around with. You are dehumanizing them just like Hitler did. And your last line is actually funny that there are no adults left in the room but yet you consider trump an adult. He is the laugh all over the world and if they’re not laughing they are angry as hell. Nothing like a bully and he knows his base loves it
