Donald Trump just trumped all the Republican candidates for President.
The day after the mom jeans wearing squat to pee President came out to assure us that tolerance, gun control, and climate change would save us from ISIS, Donald Trump demanded we bar any muslims from entering this country and bar any American citizen who is muslim from re-entering the United States.
Set aside the merits of what amounts to at least, in part, an unconstitutional position.
This is actually brilliant politics for the here and now. Immediately, every other Republican candidate except Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% rushed out to attack Donald Trump. He’s unhinged, hateful, etc. And the responses all amounted to “we must let muslims enter our country,” which sounds a whole lot like “we must allow all Mexicans in our country,” which everyone knows is blatantly untrue on both counts.
We do not have to do it, but the other candidates, unable to nuance their spittle, went all in with “no religious tests” and “yes we must do this because it is who we are.”
So, to put it another way, the day after the President failed to reassure a scared public following the second worst terrorist attack since 9/11 on domestic soil, Donald Trump not only got himself to the right of all the other candidates, but also got every single one of them save for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% to align themselves with Barack Obama.
Hate Donald Trump all you want, be offended by his proposal all you want, but it is really brilliant politics for Trump right now in the Republican primary and the reactions from the other candidates prove it. All the people attacking Trump on his immigration proposals now attacking him on this have done themselves no favors within the primary process.
Have none of these people read Art of the Deal? This is an opening, bombastic salvo to set the terms of negotiations and the other candidates except Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% just decided to negotiation in Barack Obama’s position. And it comes at a time some polls are suggesting Trump is starting to fade in places like Iowa.
Vote today in House with over 400 votes to prohibit refugees from the ISIS territories which are 98% muslim vindicate Trump.
I WANT TO VOTE TOMORROW........
Go rot somewhere and give mushrooms a home.
Well .. Erik better check the Constitution again .. because it is Constitutional to bar certain people from coming into this country .. and especially those who have a “religion” that tells them to destroy our country.
Sorry, we don’t have to let them in.
Should some in-country jihadi mole pop up soon, Trump will have plenty of people to call out as enablers.
So this from the same EE guy who barred Trump from a Red State sponsored gathering of candidates earlier on after the Megyn Kelly ‘blood’ thing?
Now Erickson is spreading lies. He’s despicable on many levels.
I hate to deflect the discussion but could someone explain to me what on earth “mom jeans” are??????????????????????????
Old lady here-—I thought jeans were just jeans. Period.
“...bar any American citizen who is muslim from re-entering the United States.”
I heard Trump say it would not affect American citizens.
From now on I’m gonna equate The Donald’s hair with that of a kingly lions mane.
I am in Atlanta and he is on the main am station on the ride home. I will listen in a little between changing to sports talk and music.
What strikes me as total bat crap crazy about him is that he is very crass and dirty, but banned Trump for what he argues was a crude, crass and dirty insult.
Yeah, I am not over that yet, Erick.
Erik must have lost a bunch of support and Freepers! to be groveling.
From the article
“the mom jeans wearing squat to pee President”
As funny as this is,what isn’t funny is that’s how our enemies see BHO
Erick Erickson, the Judas of the right, has something to say for 30 pieces of silver.
And I don’t care.
Trump seems to be the only one who is serious about stopping foreigners from killing Americans in our own country, be they Mexican or Mohammedans.
I did too. He means Muslim immigrants
The really brilliant part of Trump’s proposal is that Dumbo won’t be allowed back in the US if he travels abroad.
