Black sheep of the Republican party, and total Trump kiss-ass, Sarah Palin, is weighing in on the Republican presidential nominee’s recent flip-flopping on his controversial immigration policy, in which millions of illegals living in America will be deported.
Turns out, Trump is less racist than we originally thought, and the bigotry with which he displays himself to the public is just that — for the public. In an attempt to anger people a little less, Trump recently said that he would not tear people away from their families, but would make them pay back taxes to remain in the country.
According to the Wall Street Journal:
‘At a Fox News town hall on Wednesday, Mr. Trump said “the bad ones” who came to the U.S. illegally have to leave, but he said the federal government could “work with” others with families who have lived here for years.’
Now, even though we all know The Donald’s “policies” will continue to change every other day depending on what crowd he is speaking to, Sarah Palin was pretty upset by her bestie’s revelation that he is “softening” his policies on immigration. Palin warns that this is a very bad move for Trump’s campaign.
According to Palin, we are in for a massive “disappointment” if Trump allows illegal immigrants to remain in the country. Palin agrees that Trump’s messages change with the wind, telling the Wall Street Journal this:
‘If Mr. Trump were to go down a path of wishy-washy positions taken on things that the core foundation of his support has so appreciated, and that is respecting our Constitution and respecting law and order in America, then yeah, there would be massive disappointment. Parts of that message we heard in the last week are clearly not consistent with the stringent position and message that supporters have received all along.’
Sarah Palin has a point … yes, I really just said that. Trump’s base following, however, is made up of America’s most uneducated and bigoted Caucasians, who don’t really want to hear Trump pander to the likes of liberals and minorities.
‘The focus needs to be not on whether an illegal immigrant is a good person or a bad person but how sustainable it is to incentivize illegal immigrants to come over our borders.
‘What we appreciate about Trump is that he hasn’t been a politician, and I would hope the people around him are not influencing him to be a typical politician. As in all campaigns and administrations, you have people who try to mold and meld and massage that candidate or that administrator to become something that they want, as opposed to what is in the core of that candidate or that administrator. That’s why the candidate or administrator has to have a backbone of steel.’
This could spell even bigger disaster for Trump, as liberals are far too intelligent to fall for this desperate attempt to win votes; his followers will likely see this as an act of aggression toward them because, let’s face it, liberal compassion is almost always viewed as a sign of aggression towards conservatives.
