Trump warns we need to watch out for flying bags of dope. I never even dreamed that could be a threat. Good thing we have people watching out for this stuff…

 

Trump says Mexico wall needs to be see-through to stop ‘sacks of drugs’ hitting people on the head

The proposed wall along the US-Mexico border must be see-through to prevent people being hit on the head with sacks of drugs, Donald Trump has said. The US President estimated “anywhere from 700 to 900 miles” of barricades were needed between the two countries, with mountains and rivers providing “natural barriers” along the rest of the 2,000-mile frontier.

Ya. History.

It seems Gov. LePage has been reading alt-right history (“alt” meaning alternate universe). To wit: Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, but it didn’t free any slaves, because it was limited to “all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free,” where Lincoln had no practical jurisdiction. The slaves in Kentucky, Delaware, and Louisiana were not freed until the Thirteenth Amendment, ratified after Lincoln’s death, which ended slavery everywhere.

Further, the Republican Party in 1865 was the socially liberal party and the Democratic Party was conservative; the opposite of today’s politics. Alt-righters have a funny way of annexing anything historical called Republican (like, for example, Jefferson’s Democratic-Republicans) and applying their own twisted ideology to it. But the modern Republican Party resembles the one of 1865 about as much as it resembles the Irish Republican Socialist Party.

Of course, to know this, one would have to be willing to study history in this universe, so sadly it remains likely that LePage and his ilk will remain benighted. РKeith Cox, Ph.D. University of California, History.

Paul LePage: John Lewis should thank Republican presidents for ending slavery, fighting Jim Crow

LePage’s comments come after Lewis said on NBC News that Donald Trump was not a “legitimate” president. Trump responded by tweeting that Lewis was “All talk, talk, talk – no action or results.” “How about John Lewis last week?” LePage said on WVOM Maine radio’s George Hale and Ric Tyler Show.

“I didn’t want to win those states…”
