A Couple on the Address Last Night

Fact checking by Wash Po. Lots of fact checking.

LA Times on the VOICE fascism.

He wants to form a new agency within the Department of Homeland Security called VOICE, for Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement, to provide “a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.” That follows his recent directive that Homeland Security collect and publish weekly data detailing crimes committed by undocumented immigrants.

That isn’t data collection, that’s propaganda, and a shameless effort to stoke fear and suspicion of our immigrant neighbors and co-workers.

"President Trump has all but declared war on refugees and immigrants," Beshear said.


"You and your Republican allies in Congress seem determined to rip away health insurance from millions of Americans who need it," he said.

And here's some pre-address blame shifting. I missed part of it the other day. So, in the interest of completeness. 

 In an interview with Fox News that aired Tuesday morning, Trump said the mission “was started before I got here.”

He noted that the operation was something his generals “were looking at for a long time doing.”

“This was something that was, you know, just — they wanted to do,” Trump said. “ And they came to see me and they explained what they wanted to do, the generals, who are very respected.”

“And they lost Ryan,” Trump continued.

What a profile in courage he is.

Paul Waldman on Trump being a cynical SOB.

And because Trump doesn't care about any of the other stuff. Obama had 7.2 million more viewers
