Trump Flip-Flops On "Syrian" "Refugee" Influx

by JASmius

3) Guess which "Republican frontrunner" is all for taking in as many "Syrian refugees" as we possibly can?:

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump says that the United States will have to accept some of the refugees fleeing the chaos in Syria.

Appearing Tuesday on Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor, Trump said he does worry that some in the group could be terrorists and said a screening process will be needed.

"But something has to be done," he said. "It's an unbelievable humanitarian problem."

Kinda clashes spectacularly with the issue gimmick - immigration - that got him where he is today, doesn't it? As a matter of fact, Trump has now put himself on the same side of this particular issue with Senator Marco Rubio - you know, the face of "comprehensive immigration reform" a couple of years ago - and - wait for it....wait for it - Senator Lindsey Graham, the ultimate GOP border eraser along with his "old buddy" Senator John McCain and the same guy whose cell phone number he scrawled all over media bathroom walls back in July.

Donald and Lindsey, sitting in a tree....

I know your hero is bulletproof and can do no wrong in your eyes, TPTers, but doesn't his call for the country to open our borders to a jihadist-infested Muslim tide that he pretends to want to deny to Hispanics at least create the urge to do the slightest double-take?

- Me, three and a half weeks ago

Donald Trump, today:

The government's plan to bring Syrian refugees could result in "one of the greatest military coups of all time," GOP front-runner Donald Trump said Saturday, claiming that ISIS fighters could be among the refugees and the migration would be like a "Trojan horse."

"I heard about three weeks ago when I saw the migration as they call it," Trump told Fox News Cashin' In host Eric Bolling. "They were talking about 3,000 people coming here. You say who are they, do they have papers? Then I heard ten, twenty-five. Now 200,000 people. If you look at this migration it is mostly young, strong men."

And, Trump told Bolling, he wondered "why aren't they fighting for Syria if in fact they come from Syria. Then I said, 'how are we going to take 200,000 people?' This could be one of the greatest military coups of all time...some of them definitely in my opinion will be ISIS."

Does it not bother you, Tea Party Trumpsters, that your hero either (1) is that slow on the up-take that he cannot instinctively recognize the national security threat inherent in deliberately (because they can't swim here) importing tens or hundreds of thousands more Muslims into this country, at least ten percent of which are jihadists by definition; or (2) so readily flip-flops, weathervanes with the political winds as necessary, like the sort of professional politician he's not supposed to be and he's built his campaign on vilifying?

It's great that Trump is now echoing me, but shouldn't he have been out there amplying what I was saying a month ago?  Isn't that supposed to be his gimmick?  And why doesn't it matter to Trumpsters that it appears the answer to that question is "no"?
