As many of you know, I attended Donald Trump and Sean Hannity's "town hall" on immigration in Austin on Tuesday. I figured it would be painful, awkward and full of protests (which it was) but I was truly taken aback at this:
I wrote more about this chaotic six-minute exchange before it aired the following night, but it was so confusing and flat-out weird that it was difficult to properly describe. Frankly, it was hard to say anything other than "what the hell was that?!"...a sentiment that was shared by a great many of his supporters in the arena.BREAKING: Trump (w/ Hannity) is pivoting HARD on immigration here in Austin. The crowd is confused and divided. Honestly, this is pathetic.— Hillary HQ (@Hillary_HQ) August 23, 2016
Luckily, Fox News aired the entire scene unedited on Wednesday night. And even more luckily, Stephen Colbert tore the whole thing apart in a segment on Thursday night...and it's perfect.
Just how pathetic is the candidacy of Donald Trump at this point? Watch:
By the way, as anyone would expect after watching this, Donald is already flip-flopping on the flip flop...and I'm pretty sure he has no idea what his own position is at this point.
