Well, that'd be a start

See? Good things happen to those who link to the Daily Mail for their heds:

Donald Trump leveled a national-security flamethrower at Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, blaming her for embracing an immigration policy that would drive more Islamic radicals to stage terror attacks like the one from which Orlando, Florida is only beginning to recover.

Yes, but where's the ignorance?

Clinton, he said, would negligently implement a 'catastrophic immigration plan' that would 'bring vastly more radical Islamic immigrants into this country, threatening not only our society but our entire way of life.'

'Ignorance is not bliss,' he said in a half-hour speech at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.

'It's deadly. Totally deadly.'

It seems pretty unlikely that anyone needs reminding of what sort of fetid weasel has clawed his way to the top of a major political party that apparently found Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio insufficiently stupid and racist for the long haul. But I do hope we can all agree to join in the quest to end deadly ignorance.

Speaking of Marco, this tidbit needs noting as well:

Donald Trump is rescinding the Washington Post’s credentials to cover his campaign events, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said Monday in his latest attack on the press.

“Based on the incredibly inaccurate coverage and reporting of the record setting Trump campaign, we are hereby revoking the press credentials of the phony and dishonest Washington Post,” Trump posted on Facebook.

This seems to be the reason, per Politico:

The Washington Post article Trump appeared to be balking at now has the headline “Donald Trump seems to connect President Obama to Orlando shooting.” The report includes a series of comments the candidate made on the morning news shows about Sunday's mass shooting in Orlando that left 49 dead and at least 53 injured. It originally had the headline "Donald Trump Suggests President Obama Was Involved With Orlando Shooting."

“Trump seemed to repeatedly accuse President Obama on Monday of identifying with radicalized Muslims who have carried out terrorist attacks in the United States and being complicit in the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando over the weekend, the worst the country has ever seen,” the report begins.

“Look, we're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he's got something else in mind. And the something else in mind — you know, people can't believe it,” the Post quoted Trump as saying on Fox News Monday morning. “People cannot, they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can't even mention the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on.”

Trump, who called on Obama to resign for not using the term “radical Islam” in his address to the nation Sunday, explained to Fox News, “He doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands — it’s one or the other, and either one is unacceptable.”

Sound familiar?

And let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. Barack Obama is undertaking a systematic effort to change this country, to make America more like the rest of the world.

That’s why he passed Obamacare and the stimulus and Dodd-Frank and the deal with Iran. It is a systematic effort to change America. When I’m president of the United States, we are going to re-embrace all the things that made America the greatest nation in the world and we are going to leave our children with what they deserve: the single greatest nation in the history of the world.

Basically, add a dab of Rank Anti-Semitism® and you'd have the classic conspiracy theory of American politics, so keep an eye out for that. And not to change the subject, but did you catch the ear on the Drudge play? Here's the latest:

If you've been paying attention for a bit, you might have noticed a few of the circumstances that can make your first name a headline name at Drudge: You can be a Democratic political candidate -- a Hillary or a Bernie --  or you can be guy with a Muslim name and a gun. Let's see what facets of Omar's identity the party press decides to foreground in the next few days as its chosen candidate proclaims his policy wisdom.
