It should not come as a surprise to anyone that Donald Trump is a hypocrite. He’s been saying one thing and doing something else his entire life and certainly his entire presidency. Trump lies the way other people breathe – it’s an automatic function that happens without thinking.
But this piece of business is particularly egregious. For a man who tried to derail Democrat hopes in the 2018 midterms (and fortunately failed) by turning a caravan of tired, hungry and scared immigrants into a desperate band of disease-ridden, sexually assaulting, desperate invaders in order to play to his base (and what a good word that is for them – base) the reality that for years he has hired illegal immigrants at his resort facilities is hypocrisy of such an order it cannot possibly be measured. In particular, the woman in this New York Times story, who has been personally responsible for looking after Trump when he visits his New Jersey golf course.
Has there ever been such a liar, such a scoundrel, such a grifter, such a hypocrite to occupy the presidency? I think not.
