Trump is a blowhard. Let’s just admit it. He’s a loud mouth. But that doesn’t mean one can’t still be a Trump supporter. Frankly, if he’s right on the issues, who cares if he’s a blowhard.
Well, he’s not right on all issues. So why is he still so popular? Why does he remain at the top of the heap despite bashing everyone but his mother? It’s uncivilized they say. Yet none of that appears to matter due to two little words: Illegal Immigration. That’s it.
Although I’m not a Trumpster, I was glad someone finally brought up president Eisenhower and “Operation Wetback,” during the last debate. We “republicans” are supposed to be up on the issues, but I’ll wager 90% in the audience or viewing on TV didn’t know about Eisenhower’s very successful deportation program.
Well, Bill O’Reilly, on behalf of his “folks,” did not take too kindly to Trump invoking the name of Ike. Business Insider writes that the “Eisenhower program has a dark history – including its name, ‘Operation Wetback,’ a derogatory slur. Of course they neglect to mention that in 1950s parlance, the term “wetback” was more factual than merely derogatory, nor did they care a wit about politically correct speech.
And according to CNN, the 1950s-era transfer process resulted in a number of Mexican migrants dying along the way.” They are attempting to make us believe this deportation was the Mexican Trail-of-Tears?
