LOL...….who knew you couldn't just sail around the world and come ashore in whatever country you want to without following some sort of procedure to enter...…….oh wait...…...there are apparently millions of our fellow Americans who didn't know that

There are non-news players on all sides who spread fake stuff. You should know, one of the biggest ones is Russia, and Trump embraces them readily.

But as you have stated, the legit media reports the news. It may be biased, but it is not lies.

Thank you for helping prove that the POTUS is trying to spread lies (he's not the news either, btw) and divide our country with a false narrative.
Trump stated if you’re a criminal or don’t have proper documentation, you will not be let in to the states. He never said he will refuse anyone from the Bahamas because they’re all bad.

Y’all just stop with your BS already. Y’all looking like total idiots, Lol.

And why are you comparing sending assistance to country suffering from natural disaster to accepting hundred of thousands TPS refugees into the country?

It's like damn if we don't and damn if we do.
exactly. we let them in as an emergency measure but leftists scream 'racism!!' when it's time for them to leave.

Just more fake news outrage by the TDS left. Lol. Smh.
So, Trump's own words are fake news? Who knew.

Hey, remember when Obama just threw the doors wide open to refugees in 2010 after the Haitian earthquake?

I don't.

Sure looks like you are shamelessly using racism as a political weapon.

I have to agree that all refuges need to be vetted. I also agree that we need to help them, and there's a right way to do it. Turning your back on people that need help is a despicable mentality. There are kids involved here ya know. I don't have to "take them in my house," Nobody is expected to take perfect strangers into their homes, but we can donate money to churches that will help. There's a way for all of us to help.
Per the bolded --- This what happened to the FEMA trailers used for Katrina victims:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...tims/71342988/

It was big news at the time it happened.

Why not take "perfect strangers" into your home? After all, your heart bleeds for them. When Kosovars were victims of ethnic cleansing, they fled over the border to Albania. Albanian families in the area gladly opened up their homes to "perfect strangers". If it's good enough for them, why isn't it good enough for you, too?

Ethical and moral countries that are neighbors help each other when needed. Bahama is not only the neighbor of the USA, but it is also often it's closes Caribbean playground.

What Trump is spearheading is unethical and immoral. But then, who is surprised with that?
So, when do you expect the Bahamian family that you will be hosting in your snowbird condo to arrive?

After all, you're up on your high horse claiming to have a heart and empathy. When do you plan to stop talking the talk and walking the walk?

Is Canada taking in these Bahamians? If so, you can also open up your Canadian home to them

Which is it? The post I quoted said that the Media was reporting that it was not true, and it was just left wingers trying to make up the lies. I tend to believe the media over the wing-nuts. What about you?

I, like most rational people, believe that it's only MOSTLY the extreme wingers on both sides that make up the lies and spread them. Right now the Right wingers are more effective at it, but it's attempted equally by both.

My point, as was shown by Hawiiancoconut was that the mainstream media is reporting the truth. This constant barrage of misinformation from our POTUS that they are the enemy of the people is once again (for the millionth time) proven to be false. It just shows how radical our POTUS is. The media, whom he calls the enemy of the people, has once again posted in his defense when lies are spread about him.

His only complaint seems to be when something shines him in a bad light. Unfortunately for him, the truth does not reflect well on him MOST of the time. In this case it did, and he was defended. If he wants to have a better image, he needs to be much less of a Douchenozzel of a human, and he'll get better reporting.

Takes a low person to blame others for reporting his deuchnozzelry.

Are you willing to open your own home and take in a family?
Are you willing to respond to the thread topic? Which is about the occupant of the oval office. What that person has said and is saying, what he has done and is doing. It isn't talking about actions the posters to this thread choose to take or not take. And it is not talking about what other countries might or might not have done about U.S. citizens who have experienced category 5 storms.
