The media is nothing if not totally full of fake outrage. But when it comes to Trump, forget about it…they have thrown all rational thought out the window.
Joe Scarborough said about Trump’s comments: “Let me just say, everybody knows that granddad and grandmom and people with early onset of dementia, I know this, say things that they would have never said five or six years ago. Just ask members of my family and my mom about how they’ll say stinging things about you or other people. I’m just saying.”
Stephen Colbert said, “Trump reportedly said why are we having all these people from [bleep]hole countries come here. Sir, they’re not [bleep]hole countries, for one, Donald Trump isn’t their president. Am I right?”
Jason Johnson said: “The president is a white supremacist. Our president is a terrorist sympathizer. Our president is a clear and present danger to nonwhite people in America. It’s that simple. There’s no reason to pretend that’s not what’s going on.”
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said of Trump’s comments: “could lead the Ku Klux Klan in the United States of America… He’s “somebody who could be the leader of the neo-nazis.”
Some CNN news anchors even cried. Live. On air.
Enter Tom Cotton who released a statement that put them all to shame. Cotton released a joint statement with Senator David Perdue that said:
“President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides. But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith.
In regards to Senator Durbin’s accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest,” they said. “We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades.”
