Trump <> Obama

Remarkable exchange. 

It’s remarkable in that Trump admits they do it differently, but it is the same policy.  Well, no.  If you do it differently, it is not the same policy.

Tear gas was shot this weekend at a few hundred members of “the caravan” as they attempted to cross into the United States from Mexico to seek asylum.  Tear gas.  At women and children.  

What is remarkable, apart from the stupidity, is that Trump is trying to HIDE behind Obama. Rather than saying “we are doing THIS way, OUR way”, he is getting defensive and claiming (falsely) that this is no different than what has been done in the past.

Who buys this crap?
