I am super bummed watching so many media sources, progressive or mainstream, falsely report that Trump backed down. I want a win, badly, too, but we haven't won. The plan is indefinite detention for families, i.e. concentration camps.

Happy for Trump, that is. Not anyone else.

4h Ago Trump’s plan is to create concentration camps for families. The family separation policy was a stalking horse for that, either by design or by happy accident.

@the_FrederickS Pedantry on Twitter is especially tiresome, since there is no edit button.

One would think that reunification was never part of the plan.

@PastorSeaLion I hope so, but it’s clear to me they have fun and are energized by trolling. Plus, lying takes a lot less energy than debunking.

It seems clear to me the plan is to violate that order and dare the courts to do something about it.

@johnlk1980 Well, the detention lasts for months past the conviction, as they wait for their asylum hearing.

This strikes me as obviously unconstitutional, a violation of the ban on “cruel and unusual” punishment to imprison an entire family for a misdemeanor.

7h Ago These cases are complicated and usually take months to resolve. So what Trump is saying is that *entire families* should be imprisoned for months at a time for a “crime” that is the equivalent of a traffic ticket.

@dholton14 @Mededitor No. His entire life, including his three marriages, is a long history of him honing his manipulation skills. You don't need to be a supergenius to be an abusive fuck. Men of average or lower intelligence manage to become successful wife beaters every day.

But the plan is always to play sweet for a day or two, and then get right back to pushing, and they know they will be able to push further next time, as they've exhausted the resources for resistance. This is how men train women to accept beatings. And how Trump trains us.

What I do know is that Trump is an abuser, through and through. And this is what abusers do: They keep pushing, seeing how far they can go. Sometimes they hit a red line, though, and when they do, they pretend to back off.

To be clear, I don't think Trump had some grand plan to back off the baby-stealing. I think he flat out wants to steal babies and his team is likely already looking into ways to start doing so again.

I know that's a comforting thought, but he is manipulating us with expertise. He is an idiot in most things, but when it comes to trolling, he's very good at it.
