Donald Trump, who has as little regard for truth as anyone who has ever walked the earth, now says the media has distorted his claims about Mexicans being rapists and murderers. They distorted if, of course, by quoting him. And to prove that, he’s now adding even more racist bullshit.
Trump said in his statement that some in the news media had begun to “totally distort” what he had said over the past week, and that “many fabulous people come in from Mexico and our country is better for it.”
However, he said, the United States has become “a dumping ground for Mexico” with illegal border-crossers smuggling illicit drugs and carrying “tremendous infectious disease.”
Trump said the recent killing of a woman in San Francisco by a illegal immigrant from Mexico with a criminal record proves him right.
“This is merely one of thousands of similar incidents throughout the United States. In other words, the worst elements in Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government,” he said.
Ah yes, the old myth of the diseased immigrant. Trump neither knows nor cares that vaccination rates are actually higher in Mexico than they are in the United States. Oh wait, Trump is an anti-vaxxer too. Nor does he care that first generation immigrants have a significantly lower crime rate than American citizens do. Those things are facts and Trump could not possibly care any less about facts.
Imagine being a political adviser for Trump. Every day must be exactly the same, just pleading with Trump: “You can’t fucking say that!”
