Anyone care to answer how Obama stranded Cuban asylum seekers a few weeks before he left office?

He had people deported back to Cuba, likely ending up in prison. That was just a few weeks ago.

Leftists have really, really lost their marbles. Its quite clear for everyone to see.

It is certainly worrying that a racist, homophobic, misogynist, anti-Semitic, self-proclaimed white nationalist should have the ear of the President.
It wouldn't be the first time a US President was groomed by a racist, anti-semetic homophobe:

Quote:
America was introduced to Mr. Wright in the spring of 2008. The racist, America-hating pastor quickly became an embarrassment to then-candidate Barack Obama. The more cable TV shows endlessly looped Mr. Wright’s extremist, bigoted tirades, the more of a political liability he became to the Obama campaign.

Furthermore, Mr. Wright says Mr. Obama possessed an “Islamic background”and despite his conversion to Christianity has never abandoned his Muslim roots. In short, Mr. Wright appears to be confirming what I have argued for years: Mr. Obama is a cultural Muslim whose Christianity is deeply tied to black liberation theology - the belief that America and the West have an evil, imperialist civilization bent on oppressing the Third World.

Therefore, it would be a great irony of history if the pastor who baptized Mr. Obama’s children, presided over his marriage to Michelle, guided his conversion to black liberation theology and spent more than two decades as his spiritual and religious mentor turns out to be the man who triggers the president’s downfall

Obama deported more illegal immigrants than any previous President.
Now you are against this policy?

edit - Trump is deporting legal immigrants

Do you see the difference?

The loved the mayhem. It allows politicians to grandstand about their supposed moral values. Even allows some EF members to claim moral superiority over Trump.
Why do you allow it to rattle you so much, though?

I'm not a leftist! I'm from Wigan! There's a huge, massive difference, commonly known as a Wigan kiss which is a flying headbutt with a decent run up. Lilly livers like you wouldn't last a day where I come from and am now.

If this banter gets him to come out politically, I'm blaming you if he then turns this thread into a safe space.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Really like the term: closet leftie

This thread is keeping me up.. 3 nights in a row.

I misread Potus in a sentence a few pages back, thought it referred to the pet animal on Trump's head. I need sleep..

If I decide to become a lefty how long do I have to wait until I can assert my moral superiority on others?
