REVEALED PREFERENCES: I’m surprised by the readers of The Washington Post — they’re so Trumpian on illegal immigration. “Reading these comments, I believe the American culture has changed radically since the fall of 2016, when Trump was painted as a racist for saying the situation at the border had to change. I think, for all the press resistance to Trump’s fight against illegal immigration, minds have changed. It seems that Democrats are no longer using the idea that it’s racist and hateful to want to control immigration. I feel there’s been much less talk about the suffering of the children, but when a child dies, like this poor boy, it will be reported, and it gives us an opportunity to see how Americans are reacting to a sad story about a child. I’m amazed at the reaction in The Washington Post. It’s so Trumpian!”

People are tired of having their own compassion weaponized against them, perhaps.
