Hair Führer Makes ANOTHER Kobayashi Maru Test For The Republicans

“Buenos snowshoes, amoebas!”

I’m just going to throw this out here: Preznint Stupid has just set up the Republican-controlled congress in the un-winnable Kobayashi Maru scenario. Take it away, Politico!

Trump has decided to end DACA, with 6-month delay

Politico broke this story last night, and aside from the wrongness and cruelty of ending DACA, it has his stubby orange finger all over it; ie, it’s really STUPID.

Dude is one of the people that Hair Führer would deport. To go where? He’s as American as I am (probably more: I bet he watches sportsball). But I digress.

Here’s the GOP congress’s to-do list just for September:

  • Harvey Relief
  • 2018 Budget
  • Debt Ceiling
  • Flood Insurance renewal
  • CHIP renewal

All of those things are do-or-die.

Not on list:

  • DACA
  • Tax cuts for Corporations and those who Own Them
  • Taco Curtain

Anyone got some Quatloos riding on this shitshow?

But there is more stupidity than kicking people out of the country who belong here and whom we really need: his timing for this will hit just as the Republican Congress is hitting their re-election stride. Yup, they will have a primary to face at the same time they are boxcaring (is too a word!) 800,000 people out of the country; if they don’t vote to kick out the Dreamers, they will be primaried from the right;  and if they do vote to kick them out, I suspect a Tsunami will sweep them out of office.

Comrade Stupid has the political Midas Touch in reverse.

    Trump realizes, in his feeble mind that his only support now is the 20+% of the voting population that is his racist, xenophobic base and that he feels he must satisfy their lust. There is no upside for him in the wider electorate to ending DACA so he’s forcing the GOP Congress to give them a path to citizenship knowing that his orc-like base will have already forgotten the details once it’s done. Hence the Kobayashi Maru test. But, if he announces a border wall funding for DACA tradeoff, I hope Congress will give him the middle finger and go ahead with fixing DACA anyway. (We can always dream.)

    It’s as if he were a Manchurian Candidate, for the dems.

    Yelled at the radio again this morning. Whoever the stupid naive myope on NPR was said tRump was having trouble finding the right stance between the politics of DACA and policy. Really, he attributed considerations of policy to what tRump is flapping his arms about. Jebus X. Christ on a pogo stick, wake the fuck up, open your goddamn eyes and smell the fucking coffee, media.
