The Fantastically Successful, Incredibly Cynical Democratic Exploitation of Trump's Idiotic Border Policy

The Trump administration decided that it would be in the best interest of illegal alien children to separate them from their parents who are apprehended at the border. Or, they believe that separating families will deter others from trying to cross the border illegally.

Or, they have absolutely no idea what they're doing and are ripping nursing babies from their mothers' breasts because they're cruel and hate Hispanics.

Whatever else you can say about official U.S. policy of separating illegal alien families at the border, you have to admit it is marvelous political theater. It gives conservatives a chance to thump their chest about border security and liberals the opportunity to emote to their hearts' content. It allows pundits to stretch their vocabulary to find ever more novel and unique ways to express their outrage.

It wouldn't be a Trump administration scandal without a series of outrageous lies from the president.

President  Donald Trump on Monday once again wrongly blamed Democrats for his administration's migrant family separation policy — one that he could end whenever he chooses.

Faced with mounting condemnation of the practice, the president dodged responsibility for splitting up families who have crossed U.S. borders illegally. Trump urged Congress to pass a broader immigration bill that meets his strict demands for border security.

"And I say it's — very strongly — the Democrats' fault. They're really obstructionist and they are obstructing. The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility — won't be," Trump said at an event about promoting American activity in space.

The president added: "If the Democrats would sit down instead of obstructing, we could have something done very quickly. Good for the children, good for the country, good for the world. It could take place quickly. We could have an immigration bill, we could have child separation. We're stuck with these horrible laws. They're horrible laws. What's happening is so sad. It's so sad. And it can be taken care of quickly and beautifully and we'll have safety."
