Donald Trump has gotten hammered in the press for his effusive praise during the Republican debate for President Eisenhower’s mass deportation of undocumented workers — a program that was actually called “Operation Wetback.”

It’s gotten so bad that The Donald was even put on the spot during an appearance on Fox News — with Bill O’Reilly, of all people, who neatly explained to him all the inhumanity that was actually committed during those good old Eisenhower years that Trump longs for.

“Do you know what the program was called?” O’Reilly asked.

“I do, but I wouldn’t use the term,” Trump said, with even some apparent hesitation. “I don’t like that term at all.”

Though come to think of it, it’s possible all this talk of the brutality of mass deportation might just make Trump’s supporters like him even more.

The key exchange is just after the 5:00 mark in the video above.

The House Select Committee hearings are swaying political independents and centrists to reject the power-grabbing tactics used by Donald Trump and his Republican enablers to overturn the 2020 presidential election, according to several polls and surveys of battleground state voters released on Thursday, June 30.

“Vast majorities of the American people are paying attention, and they are deeply concerned,” said Leslie Dach, co-chair of Defend Democracy Project, an advocacy group dedicated to the principle that voters determine the outcome of elections. “They believe that a crime has been committed. They want accountability in the courts and at the ballot box. And they hold not just President Trump responsible, but they hold his allies and Republicans responsible for what happened.”
