Washington (AFP) — An angry President Barack Obama said Monday his Republican foes in Congress have refused to pass an immigration reform bill this year, dealing a shattering blow to his top remaining domestic priority.

Obama said he would begin a new effort to fix as much of the broken system as he could on his own, setting up a toxic new clash with Republicans already accusing him of flagrant abuses of presidential power.

Donald Trump Jr.

You've probably heard about Donald Trump's claim that his Democratic rival got "a big fat se onhot in the ass" before delivering a nearly perfect performance on a recently televised town hall. Or his more recent demand that Joe Biden get a "drug test" before their debate on Tuesday night. Having spent months lowering expectations for Biden, the Trumps are now busily defaming him as a junkie.

But that particular slur backfired spectacularly over the weekend when the Trump campaign posted a bizarre video of Don Jr. -- seemingly in a condition that called for rehab services. As his father might put it, "many people are saying" that the presidential spud looked and sounded like someone abusing a controlled substance. (His slurred message was disturbed too, something about an "army of able-bodied men and women" to intimidate voters).

It's both funny and sad to watch Don Jr. decompensate on Twitter. (More funny, though.)

Click and judge his condition for yourself.
