If it's *that* easy to plug up ICE, then some guy named Mohammed should legally change his name to "John Smith" ("Donald Trump?" hahahahahah) and commit a crime.

Here's the "logic" manifested in the minds of Team Trump while explaining the ridiculous budget:


We know about the $54 billion defense spending increase—now we’re finding out about the cuts to help cover that massive, unnecessary ballooning of military spending. The Trump budget would completely eliminate funding for 19 agencies, including the Appalachian Regional Commission, the Chemical Safety Board, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Legal Services Corporation.

Mulvaney (Office of Management and Budget director) has some very special logic on these cuts:
When you start looking at places that we reduce spending, one of the questions we asked was can we really continue to ask a coal miner in West Virginia or a single mom in Detroit to pay for these programs? The answer was no,” Mulvaney said Thursday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Jo e.” “We can ask them to pay for defense, and we will, but we can’t ask them to continue to pay for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.”
Coal miners’ kids and low-income kids in Detroit don’t need no edumacashunal programmin’, am I right? Except that, as it turns out, “68% of all kids age two to eight watched PBS during the 2015-'16 season” and “PBS stations reach more kids age two to five, more moms with young children and more children from low-income families than any other kids TV network.

And, speaking of Detroit, Detroit’s public television station’s “reach to African-American households and its black viewership exceeds that of white audiences,” while West Virginia Public Broadcasting announced in December that it was adding a channel to run children’s programming 24 hours a day. If you’re still laboring under the misapprehension that public television is some kind of coastal liberal affectation, consider that Idaho Public Television has the highest per capita viewership in the United States.
So: kids needs bombs, but not PBS. Must be some kind of personal grudge Trump has against Sesame Street, which —and I didn't know this— parodies him as an uncaring capitalist grouch:

Trump wants to defund PBS. ‘Sesame Street’ brutally parodied him for decades.
In 2005, his likeness returned to Sesame Street as “Donald Grump”: a grouch again, but now in an orange wig — and famous among muppets for his reality show and spectacular wealth.

With a great rumble, Grump popped out of a can atop a table strewn with Grump-branded trash.

The muppets chanted: “Grump! Grump! Grump!”

“I’m the trashiest, I’m the grouchiest Grump,” he sang.

And then, as he always did, Grump sowed division on Sesame Street.

Mark, add to this why anyone should pay for meals for poor seniors or for hungry school children? This is social Darwinism at their finest. Guns not butter ............. or bread .............. or any sort of nourishment. There is no proof that feeding a hungry senior or a hungry child in school helps them in any way ............... other than to ease their hunger.

What's amazing to me is that government supported PBS in the first place.

What's not amazing to me is that you would say that.
