There have been some dumb takes from mayors and governors after President Trump “threatened” to give them exactly what they asked for: thousands of illegal immigrants bused into their cities and counties.

We thought Seattle’s mayor had the worst take of the day — Trump should visit the city to see how many homeless people they’ve managed to maintain? — but Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has taken first place with his hot take that America is a sanctuary country … in other words, please, Mr. President, don’t ship thousands of illegals to Chicago.

Tying the rise of sanctuary cities to Donald Trump is one hell of a stretch — not to mention that it doesn’t explain the same phenomenon under Barack Obama.
