President Donald Trump gave an address on border security on Tuesday night where he explained the need for the border wall.
Democrats put forward Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to deliver a response for the Democrats.
And without even getting into their bad substantive response, the pair lost badly because of their appearance that immediately sparked memes across the internet.
After their disastrous rebuttal, some wondered why they didn’t put someone forward to deliver a response who would come across better on television (although they’re the leaders that Democrats have chosen).
But Rachel Maddow on MSNBC tried to supplement with a response from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and that only added to the disaster.
She says “no one should feel unsafe.” Except apparently people like Ronil Singh and Pierce Corcoran and thousands of others who have been killed by illegal aliens. Not to mention all the other crimes and drugs brought across the border that have harmed millions of Americans.
Ocasio-Cortez does what those on the left do often – conflating legal immigrants with illegal aliens. No, it’s illegal aliens being discussed not immigrants who come here legally.
What she can’t argue away is that the Americans harmed and killed by people who should not have been here, who broke out laws to get here.
And again she gets multiple things just factually wrong. But don’t worry, it’s okay because she thinks she’s “morally right.”
She seems to think detention centers suddenly appeared under Trump and then spreads leftist propaganda about kids and families being held in “freezing boxes.”
She talks about a child who died in border custody. Except there are several problems with what she says.
Not to mention there is no indication yet that the Border Patrol did anything wrong in their response. But who needs facts, when you’re “morally right?”
But if you thought that was bad, then she really goes over the slide.
Now that’s a hot take.
So anyone who is for legal immigration but not for illegal immigration is now un-American, according to Ocasio-Cortez.
