I don't always drunkenly live tweet a political speech, but when I do you can bet it is a Donald Trump crazy ass anti-immigrant speech.

To be fair I started off being perfectly sober.
But then things got crazy.

And then I went a little Gif crazy.

And then I started to go a little crazy crazy.

And then thankfully it all came to an end.
Afterwards I felt drained and like I should be searching for affordable housing in Canada.

But I pulled my shit together and realized that Donald Trump had just taken the long predicted pivot and shoved it right up the Hispanic community's ass.

And yep, they noticed.

Courtesy of Politico: 

Several major Latino surrogates for Donald Trump are reconsidering their support for him following the Republican nominee’s hardline speech on immigration Wednesday night. 

Jacob Monty, a member of Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council, has resigned, and Alfonso Aguilar, the president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, said in an interview that he is “inclined” to pull his support. 

“I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately,” said Monty, a Houston attorney who has aggressively made the Latino case for Trump. “What I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate.” 

He withdrew from the board following Trump’s speech in Phoenix, which was heavy on calls for border security and emphasized that all immigrants in the country illegally were subject to deportation. 

Yeah I think Trump's chances of attracting more than a handful of Hispanic votes is somewhere between slim and no fucking way.

And any argument that he is willing, or even capable of change is now completely off the table.

In other words everything is right back to where everybody with half a brain should have already realized it would end up.

Now I am simply awaiting the sweet sweet political ads the Clinton campaign is throwing together with Trump's own words from last night.

    He really is working overtime to lose the election now, lol. I be he is soiling his pants thinking about the actual work & responsibility of POTUS. God knows he has never worked that hard a day in his life, and fully intends not to in the future.

      I'll bet he didn't eat or drink anything the entire time he was there.

      Probably didn't even go to the bathroom.

      Quick meeting and then back to his private plane to poop, pee and have some lunch.

    The man was talking out of all three sides of his prissy little mouth yesterday:
    1) Trying to paint himself as a Statesman with the meeting with Nieto;
    2) Delivering a hate-filled, fire-and-brimstone speech that went on and on (and on and on and on);
    3) In said speech, backing away from pledge to instantly deport all 11M illegals now in country.

    The speech as a whole was so heil-Hitler that I didn't even realize #3 until a pundit pointed out that his specifics included only instant deportation of illegal aliens who are guilty of crimes (which I'm almost certain is current law anyway.) So basically he was trying to have his cake ("softening") and eat it too. One starts to see how the man has bullied his way to fame and fortune, speaking out of whichever side of his mouth serves his purposes at any particular moment.
    Too bad for Dirty Donny, the Internet remembers.

    So, as long as you're not shot by an undocumented Mexican you're not sincerely dead and Miracle Max will make a chocolate golf ball for you to swallow and everything will be alright?

    Nice to know.

    And he did pivot.

    Remember Amnesty Don and his "softening"?

    He simply immediately pivoted right back again.

    He did a 360.

    I guess he wants those hard core bigots and racists more than he wants the votes of independents and fence sitters.

    Anyone still on the fence is either a moron or off the grid out of touch with all media.

    I can't believe there is anyone left who hasn't decided who they are NOT going to vote for. The only ones left are the ones deciding if they are going to vote at all.

    1. Anonymous9:54 AM

      Oh no!

      Your comment about him pivoting 360 has implanted in my brain an image of Orange Judas in a tutu spinning 'round and 'round. Thanks for the belly laugh!

      You know, there is a wonderful (large, overweight, balding) man that goes around the country taking photos of himself in a pink tutu. He does it as a fund raiser for cancer. I think his child had cancer.

      Some of them are quite poignaint.

      Donald Trump can't hold a candle to the courage, sensitivity and creativity of this man.

      I think it's called the pink tutu project.

      With Donny I think more of an orange badger chasing it's tail.

    He is a nasty, awful man and thankfully does not represent the majority of Americans.

    He's in no way a statesman - mentally or physically. Interesting to watch him 'lumber' acoss the stages to his speaking spots. Don't think he appear healthy at all.

    Fuck you, Donald Trump! You'll never be elected POTUS.

    Vote for Hillary Clinton folks- she'll bring us back sanity in this election process and in following President Obama!

    I like her a LOT and do not believe she and Trump are tied - per his polls!

    For those still wondering if Trump wants to win.....nope, never did. I have to admit normally I change the channel as just the sound of his loud voice, let alone his presence turns my stomach...but I watched until we got to the actual numbered things. Rachel did a live show just to talk about this speech. There really aren't any words to describe how much damage this vulgar man has done to us, all of us. My youngest daughter is 32 and after spending 15 years in NYC as a fashion designer/graphic artist...she quit in May, literally dropped out. It all started 2 years ago on a vacation in Mexico when she snorkeled for the first time. After that every vacation was spent scuba diving around the world until she now has a rescue diver certification, meaning she can teach herself. The reason for this story is, well the most common question among the scores of people she has met from around the world Donald Trump? Granted following Obama will be a feat, but Trump??? How did America turn so ugly? Who are all these stupid people hating everyone? She is totally not interested in politics but had to comment on this to me, how embarrassing it is for our country...and her age group says it all. Stupid, ugly America, Nov can't come fast enough.

    I emigrated to Canada during the Reagan years because I was disgusted with the direction the US was heading, yet Reagan did grant amnesty to millions of undocumented aliens. As I watched Trump's speech last night, it came to me that his white rabid fans are like those good Christian Germans who enthusiastically supported the Nazis who were the perpetrators of the Holocaust.

    I thought we would never see another George Wallace type candidate again in the US, but here he is in the bloated body and bad hair of Donald Trump.

    We must get out the vote to take this disgraceful man out of the limelight. Only a good old-fashioned ass whooping by Hillary will keep this sort of person from reaching a party's nomination.

  13. Gryph, I followed your twitter feed last night as I watched the speech, stomach churning, hairs on the back of my neck rising. November can't get here soon enough. Some people think we should have laws to make the election process short. That it should be mandated by law to be 3 months, or 6, but if we did. There would not be enough time for the bullshit to be uncovered, the slime to be revealed, and who knows what we could end up with as president? Some people can keep the mask on for a while, but it will be revealed, given time. This monster will be revealed. I was waiting, hoping for him to stroke out last night.

    There was another crazy person about 80 years ago, who rounded up all those he felt were inferior. He put them on trains and sent them away, most never to be seen again.

    Like the vast majority of illegal immigrants, they were not criminal, worked hard for their living, and paid their taxes - but they were not white, Anglo Saxon, blue eyed, blonde haired members of the 'master race'.

    What is different about dRUMPf's plan?

    He's showing the world his weakness and fear, practically writing Hillary's ads on his own, he has a bunch of nutjobs as surrogates, and he knows more about war than the generals do....... all from watching "the shows".

    Jacob Monty: Trump wants to lose and create a 'nativist' media empire

    Several key Latin American supporters of Donald Trump's presidential campaign are reportedly considering their withdrawal after the Republican nominee's tough immigration speech in Arizona on Wednesday.

    Jacob Monty, a Houston lawyer and key proponent of the Latino case for Trump, resigned from Mr Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council following the Republican presidential hopeful’s remarks in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Mr Monty said: “I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately”.

    “What I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate.”

    Another important Hispanic supporter of Mr Trump, Alfonso Aguilar, president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles has also said that he is “inclined” to withdraw his support.
