The hypocrisy of Trump and his Caravan Crusade

There is some hypocrisy to the way Trump is handling the caravan approaching our southern border. To the casual observer, Trump is making a sales pitch, and he’s barking a pitch that the military will protect us from a vulnerable group of immigrants fleeing their violent and impoverished homeland. Implied in Trump’s message is that those people in the caravan are going to storm the border to get in. Trump claims patriotism, and I recall long ago, that someone told me that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.
