45 got his Nielson marching orders from Lou Dobbshttps://www.thedailybeast.com/lou-dobbs-to-trump-fire-dhs-secretary-kirstjen-nielsen-or-millions-of-americans-will-die?source=twitter&via=desktop
"Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs has called on President Trump to fire the flailing and overwhelmed Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen after she dared to warn of a system-wide meltdown amid the presidents immigration crackdown.
Dobbs, whom Trump occasionally patches in via speakerphone in Oval Office meetings, did not take kindly to Nielsens apparent admission that Trumps immigration authorities are unable to cope with migrants at the border. He began his Friday broadcast by applauding the president for standing up to Mexico and threatening to close the southern border if they didnt use their strong immigration laws to help the United States. (Of course, it was Dobbs who just a day earlier had urged Trump to shut down the border while a guest claimed Americans were getting raped by all of the expense of immigration.)
The pro-Trump Fox host then turned his ire on Nielsen.
The Border Patrol unable to do its job despite the presidents national emergency declaration and calling up the U.S. military to back up the Border Patrol, Dobbs huffed. DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is flailing and her department appears utterly paralyzed under ineffectual leadership.
He continued: So desperate that shes trying to raise, it seems, a posse of DHS employee volunteers to help secure the border, and the Border Patrol responding to the border crisis by releasing illegal immigrants on to American streets. Are they also dumping deadly drugs at the same time?
"The president needs to fire her, he shouted. Because she is nothing but a roadblock on creativity, innovation, adaptiveness, and responding to the situation we have instead of the one that she apparently wants to dream about, I dont know! She is absolutely overwhelmed!
I saw the clip on Daily Beast, I think. He was adamant that Nielson must go. Lou Dobbs pulls a lot of weight with the other geezer in the Oval Office.
...openly have shadow cabinets of right-wing crank pundits.
And old enough to remember when "I'm old enough to remember..." lines weren't a daily punchline.
And its ALWAYS someone else whos whizzing in the cornflakes. Its Obama, its Hillary, its (gasp!) socialism, its the Democrat Party (sic), its union thugs, its the communists (a classic), its John McCain, its government schools, its Jeff Sessions recusal, its the CARAVANS of murderous barbarians headed this way, its the liberal colleges that crank out more liberals, its death panels....Any one of us could go on and name many more RW-paranoia-borne hobgoblins that they can never stop yapping about.
Think how MISERABLE it must be to have hitched your misery-wagon to 45s dim star. Hate this, hate that, get all ginned up while listening to Rush and Hannity, just chugging down a steady stream of rage and being informed about how OTHER people (make them African American, for greater effect) are getting free stuff, all paid for by YOUR TAXES! Blah, blah...blah...
I do not underestimate the danger posed to our country by those who actually believe these whacked-out ideas. But their victimhood is second to none. Every day brings another wave of anger and fear to them. Snowflakes? Theyre absolute slush.
Its reached the point where Democrats are stuck in the roles of caretakers/civic minders for these folks when they do insane shit like start wars or elect Trump. Think of the heavy lifting done in these past two-plus years, just trying to hold the line, playing for time, (still) hoping that our democratic republic will survive this wild ride of lawlessness, corruption, and an authoritarian, white nationalist government. Thankfully, least some brakes were applied to this insane administration by re-taking the House.
Where does it go from here? Every day brings another crisis, gaffe, embarrassment, outrage, and always more worry about a free and fair election in 2020. So we continue to hold fast, and push back as hard as humanly possible. Its all we can do, for now.
