Before emitting this morning’s anti-transgender edict, the Cretinous Clementine warmed up with some scare-mongering about immigrants.

President Donald Trump compared America to a nation under wartime occupation that needs to be liberated from illegal immigrants during a “Make America Great Again” rally in Ohio Tuesday night.

Trump said illegal immigrant gang members are like “animals” and that they’re not using guns to kill people “because it’s too fast and it’s not painful enough.”

He claimed gang members will “take a young, beautiful girl, 16, 15 and others and they slice them and dice them with a knife because they want them to go through excruciating pain before they die.”

Add The infliction of excruciating pain the ends in death to the IOKIYAR list. If these alleged girl-torturing gang members would put away their knives and support policies that increase teen pregnancy and reduce access to health care, the GOP would welcome them with open palms.

Trump said that “people are screaming from their windows, thank you, thank you to the border patrol and to General Kelly’s great people that come in and grab these thugs and throw them the hell out.”

It’s hardly unique to tRump, but his style of lying involves constantly one-upping himself with increasingly outrageous whoppers. I imagine that if he had stuck to this topic, the audience would have learned about the month-long battle, complete with tanks and burning 60 lbs. bags of drugs launched from trebuchets, between High Quality General Kelly and the massed forces of MS-13. Followed by flowers and candy.

As an aside, I think Orange Droolius’ rallies are too short. I think he ought to be allowed to talk at his supporters until he’s ready to shut up. That would teach them.

“We’re liberating our towns, and we’re liberating our cities. Can you believe we have to do that?” he asked.

Let’s see. Lips are moving, so the answer must be No.

And of course there’ll be a base-pleasing hint of head busting for MAGAmerica. And it can double as plausibly deniable encouragement to go out and attack people who don’t look MAGAmerican.

Trump said that this is not being done “in a politically correct fashion. We’re doing it rough.”

Meanwhile, back in reality.

By and large, those arrested under Trump’s executive orders have been undocumented immigrants who have not committed a violent crime.

Between January 22 and April 29, ICE made 10,800 “non-criminal arrests” compared to just 4,200 during the same period in 2016. There are many examples of families who have been separated in these instances.

The only thing people should be screaming from their windows is Abolish ICE.
