Luckily, Ann Coulter has deduced that these crybabies are simply child actors.

What. the. fuck. is wrong with these people? They're literally holding children hostage in an attempt to secure funding to put up a border wall. And an increasing number of them concoct delusions of conspiracy in which they themselves are always the victim, no doubt taking cues from the president's tweets. This country is teetering on the edge of irreparable.

Yeah I kinda feel like the elections from here on out need to be "you're either with the babysnatchers or against the babysnatchers."

When was the last time a first lady came out against a presidential policy? This is so fucked, even by Trump standards.

At least when we threw Japanese Americans in prison camps it was so a bunch of Okies could steal their farms. This time?

Apparently a disturbing percentage of Republicans believe cruelty is its own reward.

I do not recommend reading the comments on many social media platforms and accounts regarding this story. I heard on the radio 55% of registered republicans support this policy.

I honestly read about half a paragraph of this story and had to stop.

I could only listen to a few minutes of audio. How can a parent, whether Democrat or Republican, support this?

So the common defense is that it's the parents' fault because they broke the law (trying to provide a better life for their children which you'd think would impart some empathy). They have no options but to cross the border illegally because the Trump administration has closed the only port of entry. In order to apply for asylum, you have to do so in the US. So by default asylum-seeking immigrants have to cross the border illegally. A crime that is a misdemeanor. And this is our current response to a misdemeanor. How can you support this? Because you're a fucking racist and think these people are less than human.

    Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
