Over the course of the last 24 hours, Donald Trump has:

— Repeated the conspiracy theory that George Soros is behind the caravan, a theory that led to the shooting deaths of 11 people 6 days ago;

— Called the 14th Amendment to the Constitution a “crazy, lunatic policy”;

— Forcefully repeated his claim that the media is “in fact, the enemy of the people”;

— Blamed two white supremacists of his own creation for stopping Republican momentum heading into the midterms: “We did have two maniacs stop a momentum that was incredible, because for seven days nobody talked about the elections. It stopped a tremendous momentum.”

— Made his 6,420th false claim over the last 649 days;

— Suggested that he would build “tent cities” at the border to house people who come across the border as part of the migrant caravan;

— Said that he would “build a wall” of troops to keep these very dangerous people from invading the country;

— Said that if migrants threw rocks at troops, he would give them permission to shoot them.

This is what Trump is trying to scare his base with:


“It’s like an invasion. They have violently overrun the Mexican border.”

I had a big rant worked up for this, but you know what? This guy — who served in the military — says it a lot better than I do:
