In the realm of politics, given polling, partisanship, and payoffs, it’s hard to know whose — and which — words to believe.
As an example, many Dems currently pointed at Trump wholly applauded President Clinton’s 1996 speech before Congress about the damage of illegal immigration (here).
For that matter, Trump was a veritable media darling before he tacked an “R” to his name and became a real threat.
How about a sharper example?
Feast your eyes on a tweet by Barack Obama, circa 2011. First, though, recall every instance of the Left labeling Donald Trump a racist for his stance against the breaking of immigration law (and for everything else, here, here, here, and here).
I know — if you recall each one, you’ll get to my next sentence somewhere in 2036.
It’s okay; my point will wait.
Here we go:
I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. #SOTU
