I understand Hurricane Matthew is about to reach Jacksonville and is expected to make landfall in Charleston, so everybody hang in there.
Back to the Clown Show — Sunday is the next debate, and it appears Donald isn’t prepping for that one, either. I guess this is what one can expect from a man who has never had to work for anything. He doesn’t know how to work.
However, he does know how to bullshit. He’s telling people the “feds” are encouraging undocumented immigrants with criminal records to vote in November.
â€œIâ€™m sure youâ€™re not going to write it,â€ Trump told reporters covering the meeting, according to a transcript posted by NBCâ€™s Ali Vitali. â€œTo me thatâ€™sâ€” theyâ€™re letting people pour into the country so they can go vote.â€
Trump was responding to a statement from Art Del Cueto, the vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing border patrol agents that has endorsed Trump, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Cueto said that â€œtheyâ€™re checking the records, theyâ€™re noticing that they have criminal records but theyâ€™re setting them aside because at this point, theyâ€™re saying immigration is so tied up with trying to get people that are on the waiting list â€” hurry up and get them, their immigration status corrected, make them citizens,” according to Vitali.
Trump asked why that was the case, and Del Cueto answered, â€œSo they can go ahead and vote in this election.â€
Nate Silver has the Clinton-Trump chances of winning at about 80 percent to 20 percent, respectively, this morning, with less than a month to go. Barring an unforeseen calamity of some sort, Clinton will win. Will Trump concede, or will he throw a tantrum and claim he was cheated? He could be setting the country up for some long-term domestic upheaval.
