Trump's Base Loves His Racist Shithole Comments

Hey they may not get the wall, they may not get Mexico to pay for it, and they may have to put up with DACA, but Trump's base will get racism from the Oval Office, so it's all good for them.

Kaitlan Collins tweeted the same message she gave to Wolf Blitzer last night: they're apparently high-fiving in the West Wing.

Congress is getting close to a compromise on DACA and border security, and the president might go along with it, to the disgust of his base. [Note: link goes to Breitbart. --eds.] Maybe White House staffers are hoping that this will keep him in the good graces of the base, even if he signs what base voters regard as an "amnesty" bill. (Right-wingers regard any immigration proposal that isn't exclusively punitive as "amnesty," which is the worst imaginable insult.)

We know we have an abhorrent president. This is a reminder that it isn't just him -- we have an abhorrent administration. And if, as is likely, condemnations from elected members of the Republican Party are rare or nonexistent, we have an abhorrent governing party, appealing to an abhorrent voter base. The rot goes deep.
