There is no doubt that we are about to, or maybe already have, reached peak absurdity in American politics after the left has chosen “triggered” over “determined” in the wake of President Trump’s election in 2016.
Of course, the democrats were stunned, believing all along that Hillary was the rightful heir to the sullied throne of Barack Obama. When the American nation turned their back on her in earnest, revealing the extent to which the candidate was riddled with corrupt disqualifications, the left simply shoved their fingers deep into their ears, shouted “LALALA” at the top of their lungs, and took to Twitter to foment their “resistance”.
Now, everything and anything has become an opportunity to attack the President and his conservative brethren, including a photo of Ivanka Trump holding one of her children.
Yes, this photograph is now a problem, according to the left.
Critics were quick to point to a “zero tolerance” policy announced earlier this month by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that authorizes border security agents to take away the children of people who enter the United States unlawfully.
The government places such children in foster homes, but Steven Wagner, a senior official in the Department of Health and Human Services told a Congressional committee last month the government was “unable to determine with certainty the whereabouts of 1,475” minors after attempting to contact their sponsors in the last three months of 2017.
“Isn’t it the just the best to snuggle your little one — knowing exactly where they are, safe in your arms? It’s the best. The BEST. Right, Ivanka? Right?” tweeted comedian Patton Oswalt.
“If there were a Tone-Deaf Olympics, you would be its Michael Phelps,” added John Pavlovitz, a writer.
Soon, we won’t be able to eat at Taco Bell because it would be “appropriating Mexican culture”. Perhaps the left will outlaw dyeing our hair because it disenfranchises those Americans who’ve gone grey.
Give me a break. If you’re going to reach this far in order to disparage the man responsible for you and your family’s well-being and safety, we’re going to have a hard time taking you seriously in 2018, let alone 2020.
