Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 22, 2018

On Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, President Donald J. Trump visited his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, reportedly his 91st trip to a golf club since taking office. Meanwhile, in New York City, hundreds rallied in Judson Memorial Church, demanding freedom for Jean Montrevil and Ravi Ragbir, two men who had just been detained by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Both men have been in the U.S. for almost 60 years between them, and both are prominent immigrant-rights organizers. They aren't the only ones who've been targeted by ICE lately, either, suggesting a concerted effort by the Trump administration to round up leaders in the immigrant community.

Jean Montrevil, a well-known community leader in New York City, was, indeed, taken out. "I just had my first wake-up in Haiti after 32 years," Jean told us on the "Democracy Now!" news hour Wednesday morning. He went on to describe his ordeal: "I was deported on Tuesday, without any notification from my lawyer. They just deported me. My case was still in court. It was very tough, two days of hell. ... Imagine staying up for two days straight, with no food and shackled up and with no explanation. And now I'm in Haiti."

I'm really, really beginning to hate these people (the Trump administration) with a passion.

At the very least they're consistent in that what they accuse others of they're doing themselves and what they claim to be they're not.

Any Trump supporter claiming to be in favor of law and order is full of s---.

This is okay because Mexicans aren't Jewish, right?

This is what Trumplings voted for.

GOP values on full display.

Congress could act here. They won't. Because they're okay with it.

Wait until the images of families being torn apart hit your TV screen.

We'll see how "good" it is for the Haters then.
