Huffington Post reports on July 16 that Angela Merkel tried to console a teenage Palestinian girl on television after telling her that she would be deported because there isn't enough room for her in Germany.

After hearing Merkel say that Germany can't cope with all the people who want to come from Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, or from Africa, the young woman began to cry, and Merkel rushed over to give her a pat on the back. telling the TV moderator that she wanted to give the refugee a hug.

One wonders how many Mexican "rapists" Donald Trump will be willing to give hugs to before he deports them if he becomes president. For that matter, there are in all probability no public records showing whether President Obama hugged any of the more than 2 million people he has deported since he has been in office.
