President Trump Commissions Catapult At Mexican-American Border In Preparation For Migrant Caravan
US President Donald Trump announced that he has commissioned the use of a catapult at the Mexican-American border in preparation for the incoming Honduran migrant caravan. The president has also ordered both American and Israeli troops to guard the border and prevent unlawful migrant passage into the United States.
Numerous media outlets and political figures have criticized Trump's decision. Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has called Trump's actions "insanely cruel, even for me." Meanwhile, CNN and MSNBC both had another routine Trump meltdown, calling these actions "beyond the pale even for a guy who is literally Hitler" and noting that "we are seeing the use of military force to achieve Trump's racist dream of a whiter America."
"Sure, if I was a president and they went up against my interests, I would deport them too in a heartbeat and this includes the pregnant women with their small children," said Hillary Clinton in a short interview with Flake News. "But the thing is I wouldn't make it a point talking about it and I wouldn't use no damn catapult. That's too sloppy. With me, I'd just get a few of the top troublemakers to 'commit suicide' and send a message to all that disagree with my plans, showing them what might happen to them. But... since I'm feeling nice, I would let them in and allow them to live the American Dream."
Former US President Barrack Obama responded to Trump's border catapult in a speech Monday morning at Yale University.
"What the hell is this guy, Trump, uhhh, doing? Bothering troops, taking them away from their families, so that they stop other people from being able to achieve the American Dream as well," said Obama to an auditorium full of college students. "And what's the deal with that catapult? I'm way more of a drone guy, myself. But, uhhh, I wouldn't use it over there, to the people fleeing Latin America. These are Christians. I thought we decided, as Americans, to only use unnecessary acts of military violence against Muslims in the Middle East."
FOX News' Sean Hannity called both Obama and Clinton's comments "strangely honest, yet hypocritical at the same time" and "it's simple, if the people approaching the border don't want to be threatened by the presence of an armed military with a functional medieval catapult, then they should turn back now."
Don Lemon of CNN said that Trump's most recent executive order is "beyond the pale even for a guy who is literally Hitler" and "seriously, are we living in Nazi Germany right now or is it just me? Are you people seeing this?"
Rachel Maddow broke down in tears on MSNBC, saying, "Think of the little children being denied access to our country, with rifles pointed at them. This is the point we are at," said Maddow. "What we are seeing is the use of military force to achieve Trump's racist dream of a whiter America."
"It's not a wall, but it's a start," tweeted Trump. "This will send them flying back to wherever they came from. Adios, mis amigos."
