Donald Trump traveled to West Virginia today, where he was scheduled to give a speech promoting the now-patented Republican Tax Scam that has already proved to be one of the most gigantic lies ever foisted on the American public by the GOP.
But true to form, Trump couldn’t stick to his prepared remarks, calling them “boring” and throwing the papers in the air:
Pres. Trump tosses his prepared remarks at roundtable on tax reform.

But nobody expected Trump to veer quite so wildly off-script as he did.
You might think he would at least have stuck to taxes in general, but on the heels of his idiotic decision to send the National Guard to the southern border to patrol for undocumented immigrants, and after his early-morning idiocy on social media Thursday, it was clear that taxes were the furthest thing from his mind — he wanted to talk about brown people.
The tweet this morning set the stage:
The Caravan is largely broken up thanks to the strong immigration laws of Mexico and their willingness to use them so as not to cause a giant scene at our Border. Because of the Trump Administrations actions, Border crossings are at a still UNACCEPTABLE 46 year low. Stop drugs!

In a seamless segway into more nonsense about immigrants coming from Central America, Trump began recalling his rhetoric from the campaign days of 2016, when he said Mexico wasn’t “sending their best,” this time applying his racist logic to Mexico’s southern neighbors — perhaps in Trump’s mind, the further south you’re from, the rape-ier you must be:
“Yesterday, it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody has ever seen before. They don’t want to mention that.”
Of course, nobody mentions that because it’s disgustingly false — yet another riffed remark from Donnie Dotard that he no doubt believes he can simply keep repeating until his cult followers believe it.
These are dangerous and false smears against a people that he doesn’t understand and has no interest in understanding.
