In a perfect blending of Fox News political advocacy with presidential politics, Donald Trump made Bill O'Reilly's "Kate's Law" an official part of his anti-immigration platform.
You may recall that Trump's milkshake buddy, O'Reilly, has been stumping for "Kate's Law" ever since he inserted himself into the tragedy of a young (white) woman, Kate Steinle, shot and killed by an "illegal immigrant." Fox's Megyn Kelly and Jesse Watters joined the exploitation. When Congress failed to pass the law, which punishes criminal immigrants, O'Reilly almost became a criminal himself, as he threatened Republicans who didn't "wise up" by saying, "I know where they live, and believe me, we’ll come right to them."
But Trump doesn't have to worry. During his anti-immigration speech last night, Trump promised to pass Kate's Law on "my first day in office."
The Fox News presidency takes one step closer to reality.
Watch it below, from Trump's August 31, 2016 speech in Phoenix.

JM, one of our drawbacks here in the good old USA is that we have deeply ingrained ignorance in this country that can trace it’s roots back to the Civil War. Ignorance that people ARE proud of. Ignorance that is aided and abetted by one Faux Noise.
Please everybody, repudiate the reputation of America and do everything you can to say ‘No, we’re better than that’ in the strongest possible terms.
So, get out and vote no matter how lopsided it seems. The cranks always vote. It is up to the rest of the voters to do one of the very few things our government asks of us, that being voting.
Maybe they should read that constitution that they claim to love so much.
