Jennifer Rubin, a left-wing Washington Post opinion writer who masquerades as a “conservative” in her Twitter bio, charged Monday that President Donald Trump only signed new restrictions on immigration because the president’s base is racist.
“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States” Trump announced on Twitter.
Rubin took the opportunity to repeat the exhausting leftist line of attack that everything the president does is racially motivated, just like the China travel ban implemented earlier this year that dramatically slowed the spread of the Wuhan virus.
“No doubt Trump’s base is primarily motivated by racism. This is why Trump does this. Every. Damn. Time,” Rubin wrote back to Trump’s declaration on Twitter.

As the conservative columnist at the Washington Post, Rubin is a lot like Elizabeth Warren as a Native American at Harvard. She sincerely believes she’s the minority within the institution but is actually just like everyone else.
“I think the rest of the party has gone insane,” Rubin told The Federalist’s Bre Payton following a 2018 panel before she “had to run” to avoid answering anymore questions.
Rubin’s illness from Trump Derangement Syndrome has pushed the “conservative” writer to flip-flop on any position that might be conservative. She opposed the Paris Climate Agreement before supporting it to remain at odds with Trump, recommended John Bolton for a senior position in the White House before deploring his appointment, called for Brett Kavanaugh’s impeachment, promoted open borders, condemned pro-lifers, opposed lower taxes, chastised gun owners, and derided the president’s Middle East foreign policy.
On Wednesday, Rubin attributed deaths from the novel Wuhan coronavirus to Trump.

In 2018, Rubin’s rejection of any conservative ideas prompted dozens of top conservative leaders including American Principles Project’s Francis P. Cannon and Terry Schilling, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, and the Conservative Partnership Institute’s Jim DeMint to request that the Washington Post stop affording Rubin the false label.
“We, of course, respect the right of The Washington Post to employ whatever writers it pleases — even Jennifer Rubin. However, we ask for the sake of intellectual honesty that the Post cease to identify her as in any way ‘conservative,'” the group wrote.
Rubin’s aversion to conservatism even drew the ire of freshman Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney who admonished Rubin using a fake Twitter account disguised with the name “Pierre Delecto.”
“Jennifer, you need to take a breath,” Romney wrote from the account after she attacked Romney’s non-confrontational approach to Trump as “spineless.”
“Maybe you can then acknowledge the people who agree with you in large measure even if not in every measure,” Romney finished.
