A Story About Mexican Drug Violence Donald Trump Is Too Weak To Tell

Donald Trump has become persona non grata among decent people these days, because he said Mexican immigrants are “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.” Sure, he allowed that some Mexicans are just the sweetest, except for the rape. Thursday, former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer affirmed that she thinks Trump is completely right, that illegal immigration is out of control, and that the desert in Arizona is literally impassable these days, due to all the headless corpses. However, underneath xenophobic, racist, hateful, broad-brushing, nativist remarks like these, is there a grain of truth? Is there a story to be told here? Did you idiots even watch “Breaking Bad”?

Enter GOP Rep. Peter King, who is freaked out because he heard that the White House is shipping Xerox copies of all its national security secrets to Hollywood, to make sure the filmmakers can make the story as accurate as possible because that’s what Hollywood always does. What’s your source for that shocking reportage, Rep. King? Oh, Maureen Dowd? Yes, Maureen Dowd. Here is another sentence from that same column that is scaring Peter King: “Barack Obama blazed like Luke Skywalker in 2008, but he never learned to channel the Force. And now the Tea Party has run off with his light saber.” Is it possible that this information is mostly a product of Maureen Dowd’s latest fever dream breakup with her sissy on-and-off again boyfriend, Barack Obama?
