Occasionally Trump does or says something that is just hilarious.
This is the funniest thing I've heard come out of trumps mouth in, well, days at least.
Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken

Immigration is no joking matter. Although the federal government has limited authority over states and cities, they in turn should not impede federal responsibilities, especially not while taking federal money for law enforcement. Fine. If sanctuary cities protect immigrants from the federal government then maybe the best place to sort immigration issues is in those high minded cities. Pulling federal grants is a dark response that only gives the cities a better political platform. Grants are temporary programs to entice cities to better ways of governing. It’s a show me why we should change method for improvement. Cities are supposed to recognize the better means and alter budgets to fund them. It’s voluntary. However cities twist it into something the feds owe them rather change their ways.....now that’s funny.....expecting city staff to recommend change when they’re so well cushioned with salary and benefits packages. It’s easy for staff to build public resentment toward the federal government for ending the grant money.
