DACA Despicableness, Debt Deals, Delightful Dishes

Dearests, happiest of Thursdays.
Ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is despicable, especially after this country gave a promise and a way forward for these individuals. Per usual, Indivisible Guide has a very good guide to why DACA matters, and how you can make your voice heard.
And if you’re a keebler elf turning around and telling me that DACA was unconstitutional in the first place as a salve for the betrayal of 800,000 people who came to this country as children and know no other home, then submitted their personal information and underwent background checks in order to remove the threat of deportation so that they could take the legal steps necessary to be in this country legally, and whose personal information may now be used against them in deportation actions a) a shit ton of law professors disagree with you and b) REALLY? Ugh.
Regarding that repugnant repeal of DACA, Maggie Haberman says that Trump “does not actually want to do this,” and was pushed to do so by Stephen Miller, who seems like such a nice fellow that I would have absolutely no desire to blow an air horn at at a party. Haberman also reports that the outcry against the DACA statement is “delighting” Miller, because he seems to have a pit of antimatter where his heart should be. That last bit of lack-of-soul reporting can be credited to me.
Meanwhile, Steve Bannon said that Catholic Bishops “need illegal aliens to fill the churches.”
And Trump sided with Democrats on the debt ceiling? Only Seth Meyers can capture how I feel.
In other news…
Movie I won’t be seeing this weekend: the ‘It’ remake (that’s a HELL NOPE on my end,) but I did enjoy the NYT review which included a line about the “non-clown essence of it.” Mmkay.
Yorkshire pudding pizza is now a thing, and I don’t know whether to laugh, cry, or nom. Who am I kidding, I’m sure I can do all three, I’m a pretty talented human.
Y’all are lovely. TTYTomorrow!
