Since when is a president of one party who sits down with congressional leadership of another party committing a cardinal political sin?
Under a different president, it’d be praised as bipartisanship.

Really? That hardly seems Trump-like to give away the baby with the bathwater.
As the New York Daily News noted: “The top House and Senate Democrats announced an immigration reform package Wednesday that will protect Dreamers and provide border security. … The agreement does not include funding for Trump’s long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. It doesn’t protect 800,000 immigrants, known as Dreamers, who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children.”
Quick sidenote: They’re only called Dreamers by the amnesty-loving crowd. The rest of America calls them illegals — which, of course, they are. They came to America on the pen- and phone-backed arrogance of the former president, Barack Obama, who bypassed Congress to create an amnesty door — a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals measure — for supposed little innocent children who didn’t even know they were illegals. It’s their parents’ fault — so why should they see their lives upended? That’s the logic of the left, anyway.
And here’s the logical answer of the sane: Because they’re illegal. Because they have no right to citizenship or citizenship privileges. Because granting amnesty to those who are here illegally only sends the message to those…
