Trump Spanks Paul Ryan Over Birthright Citizenship, No Wonder He’s Retiring

Be better, Paul!

After President Donald Trump said he’d look for a way to end birthright citizenship (possibly via executive order), Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wasn’t on board.

“You obviously cannot do that. You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” Ryan, who rarely breaks with the president, told WVLK radio. “We didn’t like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives, we believe in the Constitution.”

“I’m a believer in following the plain text of the Constitution, and I think in this case, the 14th Amendment’s pretty clear, and that would involve a very very lengthy Constitutional process,” Ryan said Tuesday. “I believe in interpreting the Constitution as its written, and that means you can’t do something like this via executive order.”

Ryan is set to retire from Congress come January.

Check out Trump’s words for Paul:

Trump is right. Ryan’s focus should be on retaining the House.

Women from Mexico and many, many other nations come to America by any means necessary in order to give birth.

This give’s their children American citizenship by default.

What ends up happening is the American-born kids don’t get deported and often times neither do the mothers (or fathers).

It is a system of which plenty of Americans are not fond.

About that potential executive order to end birthright citizenship.

President Trump plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil, he said yesterday in an exclusive interview for “Axios on HBO,” a new four-part documentary news series debuting on HBO this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Why it matters: This would be the most dramatic move yet in Trump’s hard-line immigration campaign, this time targeting “anchor babies” and “chain migration.” And it will set off another standoff with the courts, as Trump’s power to do this through executive action is debatable, to say the least.

WATCH:

The problem with the EO is that Trump may run into trouble constitutionally.

Enter South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who plans to introduce legislation to make the process easier:

Now more than ever it is absolutely vital the GOP retains both chambers of Congress in November’s midterm elections.

Save conservative media!

Ivanka Trump Responds To CNN Panel Mocking Trump Supporters, Says What They Did Is ‘Disgusting’

Published

on

A panel on CNN mocked Trump supporters over the weekend in a video that has since gone viral and earned the ire of not only those who back the president, the president himself, but also his family members. Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter came to the defense of millions of Americans who voted for her father in the previous 2016 election, calling what the panel did “disgusting.” In the video, CNN host Don Lemon and friends made fun of Trump fans, calling them “rubes” who can’t read or do basic math. Here’s more on what Ivanka said about the whole fiasco via The Daily Wire: Early Tuesday morning, Trump’s daughter Ivanka took CNN to task for the panel, pointing out that the network constantly bemoans the divisions in the country while making fun of those who don’t vote Democrat. “You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,” Ivanka tweeted. “The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.” https://twitter.com/IvankaTrump/status/1222126462347681793 As The Daily Wire previously reported, the panel consisted of writer Wajahat Ali and Republican consultant Rick Wilson, who claimed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it.” Wilson later went on to dawn a horrible fake southern accent and said, “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb.” Here’s a full transcript…

CNN Panel Mocks Trump Supporters In Viral Video; President Calls Don Lemon ‘Dumbest Man On Television’

Published

on

Popular left-wing news outlet CNN has a well earned reputation for being a little less than trustworthy when it comes to the stories they pursue and cover for their viewers, but what’s worse is how they treat folks who tend to have a different worldview than the one they ascribe to. A recent clip, which has gone viral, of a panel on CNN disparaging Trump supporters is proves this claim to be true, but thankfully, we have a president who isn’t afraid to punch back and to defend his backers when someone attacks them. Here’s more on this from the Daily Wire: In the discussion, which occurred over the weekend, the host, Don Lemon, and two Trump critics, op-ed writer Wajahat Ali and Republican Rick Wilson, suggest that Trump supporters are illiterate “rubes” who can’t read a map or do basic math. Speaking of Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, Wilson said that he “knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it” — a line that Lemon found side-splittingly hilarious. Wilson then widened his mockery to include Trump’s “base” of supporters. “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb,” said Wilson, adopting a southern accent. “You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling…” mocked Ali. “Your math, your reading,” said Wilson. “Yes, your reading, you know,” Ali added. “Your geography knowing other countries. Sipping your latte.” “All…
