Waffling on the waffles

Ol' Hoof in Mouth is really doing some serious Buck-pedaling these days.

No legal status for undocumented immigrants

Donald Trump ruled out Thursday a pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants in the United States, walking back comments he made earlier this week in which he appeared open to the idea.

But the Republican nominee declined in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper to clarify whether he would still forcibly deport the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the US -- a major tenet of his immigration platform -- after he suggested this week he was "softening" on the idea.

Seriously. He's beginning to sound like Ken Buck, back when he made his run for the Senate.

Wonder how all this is sitting with the far right base that got him the nomination, based on all that tough talk on illegals.
