This went from ridiculous to insane.
On Monday afternoon, Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith went after the Trump administration over allegations that border crosser children were being mistreated. The Democrats have been ramping up that rhetoric over the past few days hoping that it would catch on either to help their impeachment case against Pres. Trump or to help their candidates with the first debates coming up this week.
Smith: “Dirty and hungry children sleeping on concrete floors without blankets, toothpaste, soap or diapers. Some kids found covered in mucus. Some 3-year-olds being cared for by 7-year-olds and 8-year-olds. Horrifying. Both President Trump and Vice President Pence defended the treatment of migrant children. Yesterday, the VP tried to shift the blame to Democrats in Congress.”
“Just last week, a Justice Department attorney argued that they don’t necessarily need to provide migrant children with soap and toothbrushes for them to be safe and sanitary. Soap and toothbrushes not necessary for safe and sanitary conditions.”
“Soap and toothbrushes are not optional for children in detention. They are necessary. Were these particular children prisoners of war rather than innocent children, failure to provide those necessities would be a violation of the Geneva Conventions. Yet President Trump claims his administration is doing a fantastic job under the circumstances.”
Shep was the first one to go to the dark side but not the last. If you watch Fox News Channel from AM to PM, you’ll see that it’s no longer “fair and balanced.” It’s a lot of leftists disguised as moderates with a few token “conservative” or “populist” commentators on at night. But even then, half their guests are liberals pushing their agenda.
FOX isn’t what it used to be, but thankfully there are other outlets for news and information. You need to move on.
No one forced their parents and handlers to bring them here. We did not ask them to come, but then again maybe the Democratic Party had their pamphlets and leaflets begging for them to travel over the dangerous terrain.
What many don’t understand is that nobody is keeping these illegal border crossers. They may ALL leave at any time. Until then, it is not torture, punishment, or any other nasty thing you want to call it. It is self-inflicted.
