Trump team bobbleheads admit it’s all about fomenting chaos

Because nothing says stable, decisive, effective leadership like a turbid fustercluck:

“You’re talking about 325,000 people from overseas came into this country just yesterday through our airports,” [Kellyanne] Conway replied. “You’re talking about three hundred and some who have been detained or are prevented from gaining access to an aircraft in their home countries and must stay for now.”

“That’s 1 percent,” she pointed out. “And I think in terms of the upside being greater protection of our borders, of our people, it’s a small price to pay.”

Trump’s Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was even more shameless, denying it was chaos when it, well, was chaos:

“It seems that a lot of the chaos yesterday could have been avoided, had you at least included some sort of timed grace period,” Chuck Todd asked Priebus on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Why was that not included?”

“Well, I don’t think you want to have a grace period,” Priebus replied. “Then people that want to do bad things to Americans will just move up their travel date two days in order to get into the country before the grace period’s over.”

Priebus said that “a lot of people,” including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, “would just tell you you’ve got to rip off the band-aid.”

“It wasn’t chaos,” he insisted. “I mean, the fact of the matter is 325,000 people from foreign countries came into the United States yesterday and 109 people were detained for further questioning. Most of those people were moved out.”

Priebus said that a “couple dozen” people are still being detained.

“I would suspect as long as they’re not awful people, that they will move through before another half a day today, and perhaps some of these people should be detained further,” he said. “And if they’re folks that shouldn’t be in this country, they’re going to be detained. And so, apologize for nothing here.

    Where does the 325,000 people number come from? That seems like an exaggeration.

    It’s all about creating more fear in the public so tRump can grab more power coming closer to being a full fledged dictator(anti-christ).

    This is exactly what a KGB agent would want for the US. Vlad has done his job well. His Useful Idiot is going along with the plan exactly.
    The US is taken over by the Russian secret police and no one even says “Boo”. What a bunch of whiny assholes this country has become.

    ” … it’s a small price to pay.”

    Team Trump is Machiavellian ideology personified.

      How large the price is tends to have a direct relationship to who’s doing the paying, and how much it hurts to pay. She ain’t payin’, she ain’t sufferin’, so for her it’s a “small price to pay.”

    So much for the founding principle that it’s better 9 crooks should go free than 1 innocent person be imprisoned. But of course no one in the Trump gang really gives a damn about principles, American or otherwise.

    they move through in a day or so and at what cost to that person? They obviously think that by doing this they lesson the chance of an attack meanwhile creating havoc and possible enemies because of it. You do not get peace by forceful oppression. You get war.
