TRUMP IMMIGRATION SPEECH LAST NIGHT

I believe Trump lost a big opportunity last night and didn’t do a lot of things I’d hoped he’d do.  I believe he was right, I just don’t think he sold it better than he has the last few weeks….

I’m just reading that FOX really raked him over the coals in the form of Shepard Smith, who ‘corrected’ his falsehoods, but I don’t believe they were falsehoods, they just weren’t backed up enough.   Here’s an article …

Donald Trump’s Border Speech Gets A Savage Instant Fact-Check on FOX NEWS:

    Even my buddy, Rich Galen, from Mullings.com, (a Republican who’s not a Trump fan and who I believe goes overboard in criticism…used to work for Newt, etc…big in the R party), says what I thought “The speech last night was written quickly”..

    I do NOT GET WHY it wasn’t better.
    Part of his column says :”He then turned political saying Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer “backed a physical barrier until I became president.” There is probably some truth to that. He incorrectly claimed that Democrats will not pay for border security. They won’t pay for a wall, but they are open to other elements of border security. “

    “Some truth in that?” Yes, Rich, it IS true.

    More “He said hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants have been arrested for criminal activity. There wasn’t any time range so it will be difficult to fact check that. ”
    I believe that was highly hyperbolic…

    More “The main body of the speech dealt with criminal activity of illegal immigrants. He talked about two murders – one of a policeman – California. He mentioned one vicious crime that occurred in different areas of the country.
    This is something Democrats typically do very well – choose a few egregious examples and suggest they are something that happen all day every day. ”

    Z: RUBBISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do NOT understand how TWO MURDERS aren’t enough. LIBS DO NOT SEEM TO GRASP THAT IF THOSE ILLEGALS WERE NOT HERE ILLEGALLY, THOSE PEOPLE WOULD BE ALIVE.
    Yes, we have enough murders of Americans BY Americans, does that mean we shouldn’t worry about illegals killing us?

    Shep has really morphed into a “tool”. The response from Chuck&Nancy was pretty much what we figured it would be. Until they started to speak, they (to me) looked like corpses propped up. They both looked as cold as a dead body in a casket.

    The other thing I noticed prior to the POTUS speech is many MSM sites reporting on the Wall story were using the word “terrorist” rather than illegal immigrant. Stories that more “terroritsts” have been apprehended attempting to enter the U.S. from the Canadian border. Well, yeah, so? Trump hasn’t said a U.S.-Mexico wall is for “terrorists”. But the MSM had to flip from “illegal immigrant” to “Terrorists” because it fit their narrative. MSM=desperate and then some.

    DAVE…totally agree with you.
    And yes, Chuck and Nancy looked like they’d been embalmed. “Thank you, Speaker Pelosi”…hilarious….and SO DUMB.

    I can’t watch Shep Smith anymore…if I’m watching TV and he comes on, off it goes…..so I’m not at all surprised but I am saddened they let HIM do a post mortem on the speech at all.

    The fact that FOX puts Smith on this, is a great way to describe why I don’t watch FOX, even if I did take up watching TV news again.

    We need the wall.

    22,000 illegal children entered in December and this is after we sent all the military down there to help the agents.

    There is an endless stream coming across and through a large Arizona ranch. Fact is No One knows just how many are coming across. I’ll bet 40 million are here already.

    The only answer is for DJT to declare an emergency and build the wall. He’ll never get anything through congress. We had the house and senate the first two years and those bums didn’t get jack done. To add insult to injury, Mitch McChuckles is now complaining about the dems on this…. He should be bitching about Ryan not getting anything done for two years. Then he should bitch about himself for not going to the 51 vote majority. Like the dems will play nice with him when they get the majority back? Pleassssse….

  9. Shep is trying to chisel out a spot for himself as the Trump hater extrodinaire. He took facts and twisted them. The Daily Signal did a fact check and cleared them all. It is instructive that the ani-Trump media has been fairly muted in their criticism. I think mainly because Trump didn’t make mistakes last night. He just laid it out there low key and gave up his seat on the hyperbole train.

    Great video, Kid. The best argument I have heard to date is still this one: All the Dems that are against the wall now have supported it in the past, and we have videos of them saying so. People can draw their own conclusions as the reason for the change.

    I didn’t read the article, but I will tell you the Shepard Smith is not the brightest bulb in the scoreboard. Most of his rebuttal is in the category of “so what?”, or “does not apply”. For example, how can you know how many undocumented crossings there were when they are not documented, and any number is an estimate? How can there be less crime from illegal aliens when over half the inmates in the California prison system are illegal aliens (can you check me on this?)?

    So please forgive me for not reading any opinion by Shepard Smith. If not a pretty man on the tv, he could not make it in the real world.

    As far as Trump’s speech, I think he said what he had to say. You have to start the argument somewhere, and he took the term “border security” out of the Dems hands. Now, the whole world knows that the Dems don’t want any border security.

    As far as the speech sounding like it was quickly written, there may be some truth. However, it was likely written weeks ago and has been re-written many times since with each draft reflecting the political measures of the moment.

    Chuck and Nancy looked so ridiculous in their follow-up rant that my wife called the visual the New American Gothic. I think the Dems lost support just on the basis of that visual alone.

    HERE IS WHAT I JUST WROTE in a comment on Yahoo……to an article about how
    Trump walks out of shutdown talks after Pelosi refuses to give in on wall funding

    So the very thing the Dems DID vote for not so long ago is now hated by the Dems…wonder why? It’s not concrete anymore, Chuck and Nancy…it’s what you voted for, what Bill Clinton pushed for, what Obama pushed for…but SUDDENLY, it’s ALL OVER and it’s Trump’s fault people won’t have their mortgage money. jerks. One person already responded with a thumb’s down to my comment…do they not KNOW the Left wanted borders until Trump or don’t care? interesting. Pelosi says she understands financial insecurity, like she does? Chuck, the pres walked out because what’s the point? No, you have nothing to discuss if it’s not going up, it’s not temper, he’s trying to get some agreement, for something to work so people CAN pay their mortgages. Chuck…what #$%$. “Trump throws a tantrum because it’s not what Trump WANTS’???NO….most people want better border security and Border Agents are saying a wall will help….it’s what most of America seems to want, even Lefties until Trump wanted it.

    I just posted it and got a thumb’s down so I added that bit inside the comment about that…since then I’ve got one thumb up already.

    “You have to start the argument somewhere?” NO! It’s BEEN started, Bob…he did NOT say what he could have which MIGHT have changed more than 7 opinions, as Rich Galen says.

    I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO LISTEN TO SHEP FOR A YEAR OR SO…HE DESPISES TRUMP AND SEEMS TO BE WITH CHRIS WALLACE IN PLAYING UP TO THE FOX OWNERS WHO ARE SO FAR LEFT ….

    apparently, TRUMP WALKED INTO THE DEM MTG TODAY AND SAID ‘WILL YOU AGREE TO MY WALL?’ Nancy said “NO” and he pounded the table and walked out…

    Kid, good video, …I don’t think ANYBODY here at GeeeeZ doesn’t want the wall, that’s for sure.

    The medical stories are horrifying, too…children now coming down with TB again, a new strain of polio…and the TB, by the way, is a very tough strain to heal from.
    There are MANY more because I believe I heard a third of the kids are coming in sick…

    I have to laugh when we hear how “America’s borders just aren’t equipped to handle this many asylum requests” and that’s apparently AMERICA’S FAULT?

    Kid, I’m reading that everywhere but a FOX article I read. I don’t believe he stormed out…but I do think he left the meeting early…but who wouldn’t? If they’re not agreeing to concrete OR metal, which apparently is included now, why wait around?

    But for them to say he has tantrums if he doesn’t get his way is NUTS….As I said in BOLD which I copied from my Yahoo Comment, why would Trump hang around? take a look at my comment in BOLD above.

    And yes, I’d heard measles was bad again and a tough strain, too.Think people will FINALLY care if their kids or grandkids DIE??
