“Trumpified” Republican Platform: Less Porn More Wall




Republicans have finished their new party platform and it’s apparently been “Trumpified.” Not enough to include language against the TPP apparently. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Donald Trump is putting his stamp on the official policy platform of the Republican Party.

Republican Platform Committee members on Tuesday voted to include language calling for the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico
border…

The only mention of the Trans-Pacific Partnership — the international trade deal crafted by the Obama administration that Trump vehemently opposes — was stricken from an early draft of the platform.

The language on the border wall passed unanimously through a subcommittee and did not attract any opposition or amendments at the full committee hearing.

It passed easily on Tuesday without any additional debate.”*

  1. Isn’t it just too ridiculous,as if it’s been written to be laughable. The
    whole coal thing gives it away, could this be the establishment GOP attempt
    to get moderate Republicans to hold their respective noses and get behind
    the only establishment figure running, yes Clinton. She running on a
    republican like platform, she’ll pass TPTP and maybe cause more war. The
    republican backers are flowing to her, they think better Clinton than
    Trump. This crooked election anything is possible

  2. carbon (coal)+oxygen –> CO2 (pollution)
    BASIC SCIENCE HERE.
    If you don’t know that……you are f***ing stupid.

  3. I love the Republicans platform, they go all in. If they lose, they are
    screwed big time and if the win they’ll be screwed four years from now.
    It’s kind of win win for the Democrats.

  4. What are the republicans going to do when all the old white people die
    off???

  5. I’m impressed. Trump is actually doing what he said he would. That’s a
    major first in politics. If he keeps it up he has my vote.

    • Sure there will be. Mexico will pay for it too. Wouldn’t you pay for a wall
      if a maniac moved in next door and you couldn’t re-locate or get rid of
      him? Canada will probably build one too.

    • i doubt Canada would build one; we tend not believe the rampant stupidity
      of the USA

  6. I voted liberal here in Canada, but please America don’t let Hilary become
    the next Angela Merkel. Please don’t commit cultural suicide and jump on
    the sinking ship that is Europe and Canada. Please America stand strong for
    your culture or the west will be lost.

    • +Bobby Rogers There she is! I know you would be baited to show your true
      face Bobby or should I say Bubba! Your racist and stupendously idiotic and
      uninformed point is made. now go back to reading Mein Kumpf!

    • +superscottie69 Maybe if you try to understand why I’m racist instead of
      just calling me out a hater you’l spot your own ignorance. No one’s the
      wiser here.

  7. You have to call them “illegal aliens” so people will know that “It’s no
    fun being ” one.

    • Why? We have engineering now that’s a million times better than the ancient
      Chinese and the terrain is far different. Plus, we don’t have the manpower
      available the Chinese did and our techniques would be way different.
      Building a wall isn’t hard. It’s just stupid, ineffective, environmentally
      destructive and crazy expensive.

    • Then again, maybe that’s Trump’s job program. Put everyone to work cutting
      blocks of stone and hauling them to the border with rope slings to build a
      modern replica of the Great Wall. Either that, or no food stamps. Betcha’
      Pence would go for it.

  8. Killer Klowns from Outer Space II: the Mexican Invasion. I always knew
    they’d make a sequel!

  9. When coal can be considered a clean energy source, is it any wonder your
    politicians are so dirty?

  10. i wish TYT could stop MSNBC from having their ads played before their
    videos…its cringe worthy, yet eerily ironic.

  11. Let’s REMOVE ALL cops from black areas. See how long they last policing
    themselves until they’re down to a couple of old ladies and a blind dog.
    I’d give it
    about 12 months.

    • I remember watching a video on liveleak where crowds surrounded alleged
      thieves and set them on fire w/ gasoline.., it looked to be somewhere in
      Africa and according to the description; these incidents were almost daily
      and was due to a lack of law enforcement. Without cops, civilians would
      take the law into their own hands and chaos ensues :/

  12. Hell yeah! Time to reverse this illegal alien invasion, throw them all out
    and raise a big beautiful wall on the border to make sure they stay out.
    That will thwart the Mexican plan of taking their old desert back by
    displacing White Americans demographically.

    • Yah throw the illegal aliens out! All of them! But why are you talking
      about Mexicans and whites? Mexicans will go back to mexico and whites will
      go back to Europe.

    • building the wall is stupid, do it or not, it doesn’t matter. It will not
      stop immigrants. It will only cost a lot of money to build and maintain.
      Forcing mexico to pay for the wall and setting market controls is the real
      problem. Mexicos economy is 11th of the world and is soon to pass the
      threshold of “rich” nations in GDI per capita. Thats 20-22k yearly per
      person, mexico is currently at 18k. Also mexicos economy is entirely
      dependent of the US economy. If you limit trade and constraint mexicos
      funding the economy will collapse. If the mexican economy collapses the
      wall will not stop millions of mexicans crossing the border. Desperation
      forces people to do extraordinary accomplishments.

    • Americans are displacing Americans. Only reason that illegal immigrants are
      “taking jobs” from Americans is because AMERICAN companies are allowing the
      illegal immigrants to get the jobs. To say that they are stealing jobs is
      wrong

    • +CannedPenguins to go even further, as a 1st world country the income
      distribution is terrible. Americans are loosing jobs that they should not
      be doing anymore. Native-born Americans should be having middle income jobs
      and above and after increasing border controls the fewer immigrants in the
      labor market should have no trouble finding the indispensable lowest income
      jobs. And that is how a healthy economy of a rich-country should work.
