Immigration: How Trump Derangement Syndrome Dumbs Down the Press

How many IQ points do you lose from Trump Derangement Syndrome or similar conditions of blind political rage?

I was asking myself that while listening to the stupefying question asked of Trump adviser Stephen Miller by CNN’s Jim Acosta at Wednesday’s White House press conference. Miller had been explaining — with a level of clarity and specificity not often seen at these events — the immigration proposal being proffered by Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue and now being backed by the president. The press audience appeared impatient with these details, however, waiting to pounce as it almost always does.

    The “press” was not asking questions at all; they were lecturing and virtue signalling. This was not a press conference in any real sense where reporters ask questions, allow the other to provide answers and then report the results. This was the Media Party or the PR wing of the Democrats/Deep State in operation. Honestly I would not have had the patience to put up with this crap like Miller did, especially the constant trying to talk over me when I am answering the question.

    • Exactly Alain, it was the media attempting to assert itself as the true governing party.

  • It is really is childish to carry on this futile vendetta against Trump.

    He won. Get over it.

      They can’t get over it. They are leftists, SJWs and Progressives: without their hatred they have not identity, and so they must maintain their rage to retain their group identity.

        Right. It’s easy to complain, but much harder to put together a winning program that voters like.

        • Watchman

          These people only care about what voters like if these voters have the same viewpoints as these Progressives/SJWs.

      • I suppose you’re right.

        Without their hatred, they are nothing.

    “But what about : Emma Lazarus’ poem!?”
    “It’s like part of The Constitution, or something!”

    We are living in heady days.

      Postmodern times: where ‘the feelz’ supersedes ‘the facts’.

      They’re like teenage girls on facebook or something.

      I love how lefties go from “because it’s 2016” to this sorta thing in no time flat when it suits their immediate political purposes. Alrighty then.. let’s pretend it’s the turn of the 20th century again! No probs.. let’s do this!

        The new shtetls and ethnic ghettos are going to be fabulous!
        One thing I would love to bring back from 1903 is the statistic that 1/3 of all immigrants return to their land of origin within 36 months, and that none of them, or their children, are entitled to any social services or automatic citizenship.

          And then there’s women not voting.

    English has become, for all intents and purposes, the world lingua franca.

    The Québécois and Québécoise maintain their anger at this fact and pray for the day that French again becomes the lingua franca of the world.

    • Clink9

      French is going the way of Latin.

    • They should move to the EU. I believe it has now removed English from its list of approved languages. I believe it also, in its heady early days, tried to invent a Euro language, which presumably everyone in the EU would be have been inculcated with from birth.

      There are times when I wake up in the morning and think I have strayed into Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

    Mark Steyn:

    “We cannot fix failed states by inviting millions of their people to move in with us. All that ensures is more failed states, more failure, and eventually, one by one, the nations of the west will join them. And then you’ll really be yearning to breathe free and there will be nowhere to do it.”
