– Steve King
As rumors swirled around D.C. last night about President Trump ‘s dinner with Reps. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other Democrat leaders, he was apparently working out terms on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). This sent resident nationalists into a frenzy, even trending #AmnestyDon on Twitter for several hours. It unveiled real doubt for the first time in the President’s integrity among the Trumpkin faithful.
Rep. King went on a rant, including an inaccurate statement claiming fmr. President Reagan’s amnesty failed (it passed the same year with bipartisan support), and that DACA was amnesty. But nonetheless, it was entertaining.
That last Tweet has since been deleted. Pesky screenshots. /sarc
Whiplash firebrand Ann Coulter got in on the collective depression, as well:
She had no thumb-hangover, though, and kept the tweet in all its inglorious bastardry.
As he cleaned up his Twitter account, Rep. King went on air with cable interviews, expounding his 140 character screeds, telling CNN’s Alyson Camerota, “Something has to get reversed here with this president’s policy or this will just blow up his base.” He continued, “This was a straight up promise all the way through his campaign. What it means is the base will leave him. They won’t be able to defend him anymore.”
Something normal people stopped doing long ago. It doesn’t mean Rep. King can leave his sandbox though. Just that a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.
