In the week since Hamas launched its terrorist attack on Israel, Donald Trump has managed to take positions that alternately praised the terrorists as “smart” and insulted President Biden as complicit with the terrorists. It has been the sort of typically incoherent, self-serving ramblings that characterize Trump’s anti-American brand of asininity.
However, not content with merely disparaging America, alienating our allies, and emboldening our enemies, Trump has also been directing his diatribes toward our fellow citizens here at home. On Friday Trump posted a video on his failing social media scam, Truth Social, wherein he sought to frighten his cult disciples with nightmarish tales of an impending doom that only he can save them from. Which is a deranged decree that he has delivered many times before.
In Trump’s latest video he outdid himself with brazenly bald-faced lies. And the fact that he was exploiting the tragic suffering and loss in Israel for his egomaniacal glorification makes it all the more repulsive. Here is what he said with all the sincerity and credibility of a poison-laced snake oil salesman…
“The same people that raided Israel are pouring into our once beautiful USA through our totally open southern border at record numbers. These are the same people, many of them, that did a number in Israel, a sneak attack. Same people we have pouring into our country by the thousands. Are they planning to attack within our country?
“Crooked Joe Biden and his boss Barack Hussein Obama did this to us. We cannot let this happen. They may be planning something very very bad. Don’t forget, I’m not making this as a prediction. But there’s a phrase out there: Trump was right about everything. We have to be very careful. I don’t want to be right about this. But people are pouring in from the Middle East into our country, largely males, strong young males. What’s going on over here? Are we going to be raided like Israel was raided?”

Needless to say, not a single word of that bears the slightest resemblance to reality. It is entirely intended to stoke the most severe fears and anxieties of the glassy-eyed cultists who worship him. There have been exactly zero Hamas, or any other Middle East terrorists, crossing our Southern border, which is most definitely not open.
What’s more, Trump’s frequent assertion that Obama is controlling Biden is just a manifestation of an obsession that continues to occupy his feeble brain seven years after Obama left office. And his repetitive warnings of an attack by imaginary Muslim terror cells is only going to fuel further prejudice and potential violence against innocent people.
For the record, PolitiFact addressed these remarks by Trump and found them to be “Pants on Fire” level lies…
“Terrorism experts told us that there is no evidence that Hamas, a terrorist group in Gaza, has militants crossing the Mexico-U.S. border, much less in record numbers. And a DHS spokesperson said there is no credible intelligence to signal a threat to the U.S. from Hamas.”
Furthermore, PolitiFact’s analysis of Trump’s statements over time reveal that 75% of them have been determined to be “Mostly False” “False,” or “Pants on Fire.” To anyone who has been paying attention for the past several years, that won’t come as much of a surprise. But it is nevertheless alarming that such a grotesquely dishonest, sociopathic, aspiring authoritarian is still leading the Republican Party’s race for their 2024 presidential nomination. It says all you need to know about today’s GOP, that can’t even manage to elect a Speaker of the House.
