“I mean, they should come first. You were born in this country. You were born here legally. You’re here legally. I mean, wages have been stagnant for the last 15 years and it’s because you have, you know, Syrian refugees coming in,” Eric Trump continued.
And it’s those damned leopards, too.
A 12-year-old boy is running Donald Trump’s presidential campaign office in one of Colorado’s most vital counties, according to a new report.
Weston Imer runs operations for the GOP presidential nominee’s camp in Jefferson County, KDVR News said Sunday.
KDVR News said Jefferson County is one of the most populous counties in Colorado as it includes part of the Denver metro area.
Imer is responsible for gathering volunteers and helping get out the vote for Trump in the critical swing state, the news station added.
KDVR News said Weston Imer starts school next month, so he hopes to perform his job with Trump’s campaign until at least that time.
Maybe he can get a note from his mother.
Donald Trump’s newly established campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Friday that she hopes people forgive the GOP presidential nominee after his speech expressing regret.
“He was talking about anyone who feels offended by anything he said,” Conway said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“That’s all him. He took extra time yesterday going over that speech with a pen so that was a decision he made. Those are his words,” she said.
“I hope that everybody who’s criticized him at some point, David, for being insensitive or mocking someone, at least show some recognition and some forgiveness,” she added in the interview with David Muir.
He actually took extra time going over his speech with a pen, fer chrissakes, so c’mon people cut him some slack here!
Except for the celibate nun part. Unfortunately, that ship has sailed.

Makes me kind of teary. *sniff*
Trump is also set to call for increased vetting of individuals entering the United States by developing a “test” that would question visa applicants on their support of US values and seek to weed out any supporters of extremist ideologies.
The campaign official specifically noted as an example that “large numbers of people” in Afghanistan “may have attitudes about women or attitudes about Christians or gays that would be considered oppressive, even violent.”
“We have no reason to bring someone into our country who is going to harbor that hostility. We want to bring in people who are reformers or who support moderation or who embrace or expand pluralistic ideas,” said the campaign adviser.
The senior campaign official declined to say exactly what such a test would look like, but said it could include a questionnaire to get potential immigrants on record about their views.
And we all know how truthful everyone will be on these tests.
(Note: that was sarcasm, Donald.)
