Border Crisis Is the New Death Panels

Trump and his surrogates have spent the two weeks since Trump shut down the government promoting their latest big lie — that there is a crisis at the southern border.

But after years of being on the receiving end of Trump’s lies, the media ain’t buying it. Check out this list of fact-check articles about the Oval Office speech he gave last night from mainstream media outlets:

The GOP Frontrunner Is a Notorious Adulterer Whose Current Wife Posed in Her Altogether – Is This the End of GOP ‘Family Values?’

Update May 2016: Google informed us that it considers this photo of the wife of Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s nominee for president, to be obscene and ordered us to remove the photo because this page features Google advertising. You can see the full, uncensored photo here.

Original story:

Now that we have a Republican frontrunner who is an infamous serial adulterer and whose current wife once posed nude for a magazine in his private jet, can we say that the GOP’s 35-year masquerade as the party of “family values” is officially over?

Imagine for a moment that photos had emerged of a wife of a past Republican frontrunner — Ann Romney or Cindy McCain, for example — supine on a fur rug in the altogether. Their husbands’ campaigns would have been over faster than Rick Perry could say “Oops.” But this is Teflon Don, so even evangelicals are apparently okay with what they’d otherwise consider a sinful display.

And then there is the candidate himself. Just 14 years after impeaching Pres. Clinton over a sex lie in civil lawsuit, the Republicans are now giving majority support to a notorious philanderer who openly carried on an affair with wife number two while still married to wife number one, and may have started seeing number three (the one who posed nude) while still married to number two.

Obama’s announcement last week that he is instructing immigration police to exempt about 800,000 children of undocumented workers from deportation, it would be instructive to remind GOPT spittle-spewers that their patron saint, Ronald Reagan, signed a law in 1986 that provided amnesty to 3 million “illegals”:

[In] 1986, Ronald Reagan signed a sweeping immigration reform bill into law. It was sold as a crackdown: There would be tighter security at the Mexican border, and employers would face strict penalties for hiring undocumented workers.

But the bill also made any immigrant who’d entered the country before 1982 eligible for amnesty … The law granted amnesty to nearly 3 million illegal immigrants, yet was largely considered unsuccessful because the strict sanctions on employers were stripped out of the bill for passage.
