More Sleaziness From The Administration

“Democrats who stand in our way will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants.”

Trump Immigration ad.  Seriously?

Yes, the ad reminds of what Republicans do with total disregard for decency and politics without racism. Watch and listen to a Karl Rove/Roger Ailes and Bush I ad with clear racial imagery.

As pf this morning it seems some White House officials are working to distance the White House from the ad. Huffington Post is reporting on the White House’s legislative affairs director, Marc Short's, visit with Meet The Press and Chuck Todd. HuffPo  linked.

Todd didn't exactly allow Short to pull a "trump."

It is as clear as the morning dew, Trump is rotten with racism and apparently has a tight group of White House (social) facilitators. Short may work the networks to call off the dogs on Trump's assertion of national murder perpetrated by Democrats, but it seems someone in the White House has the wherewithal to at any time affect overt slander with a slant towards racism. 

Despite our political correct tendencies to avoid comparing Trump to past dictators and nation-killing leaders, we cannot avoid thinking about a paragraph in an article from My Jewish Learning dot com:
Once in power, Hitler moved quickly to end German democracy. He convinced his cabinet to invoke emergency clauses of the constitution that permitted the suspension of individual freedoms of press, speech, and assembly. Special security forces — the Gestapo, the Storm Troopers (SA), and the SS — murdered or arrested leaders of opposition political parties (Communists, socialists, and liberals). The Enabling Act of March 23, 1933 — forced through the Reichstag already purged of many political opponents –gave dictatorial powers to Hitler.
The United States cannot survive years of Trump and his swamp in an around Washington DC.
