It’s unbelievable how fast people erase their own memories:
He’s been president for nearly two years, and up until last week, Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress. At any point during that two years, Republicans could have passed a bill to fund the border wall, and he could have gotten at least $5.6 billion.
No, “they” couldn’t have passed the bill. Because there’s no “they” here. Paul Ryan is a fanatical neoliberal. He opposed the wall because – see above – he’s a fanatical neoliberal. This all happened very recently. What is this, sudden collective Alzheimer’s?
Trump was not an establishment Republican. Jeb was an establishment Republican and he was deeply into creating an even larger marginalized and exploited illegal class to please his big business cronies. Marco Rubio was an establishment Republican and he was the same. Trump savaged them on immigration during the debates because his is not an establishment Republican position. After he won, he had to deal with the deeply establishment neoliberal fanatic Paul Ryan whose only interest in life is to promote the deeply establishment neoliberal tax cuts and destruction of the welfare state.
This all happened like 15 minutes ago. How come nobody has managed to retain the memory of it? Jeez.
