If you thought Trump would spend his days trying to either defend his cruel policies against migrant children due to the justified outrage Americans feel over it or work to clean up the mess he’s made, you were wrong. Just two weeks after Trump and his team were exposed as committing human rights abuses against children, he’s back to whining about what a victim he and his administration are as a result of the Russian investigation and the backlash over those abuses.
We’re back to Trump’s paranoia and attempts to convince his rabid fanbase of a massive conspiracy to keep him from the presidency, a conspiracy that apparently did not work but he needs to deflect from the alleged crimes he and his campaign team committed. As long as he can discredit those charged with investigating the crimes, he ensures that it doesn’t matter what they find, his voters won’t believe it and will prefer the conspiracy theories instead.
Just after press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used her official Twitter account and violated ethics by naming a specific business and its location in order to affect their ability to earn money, Trump is doing the same. It’s highly doubtful that Trump has ever seen the inside or outside of a Red Hen Restaurant, but his comments about the “dirty outside, dirty inside” rule is interesting considering that he owns some of the most expensive golf resorts and the health department continues to find code violations inside.
Are we really supposed to feel sorry for the plight of Sanders not being able to peacefully eat in a restaurant while she supports abusing children? It takes some real gall to complain about how you’re being treated while you remain unoffended by the human rights abuses being inflicted on kids.
Of course, he finally returned to defending those policies, as well. For two days, he’s called to violate the Constitutional right to due process and to ignore those immigrants who have a right to legally seek asylum in the United States. The Constitution, which Trump swore to defend, has never really meant much to this president when it stops him from doing the awful things he wants to do and promised his voters he would do.
Twitter also responded to Trump’s insane rant. See some of their comments below:
