MSNBC ‘Morning Joe” host, Mika Brzezinski, bashed Ivanka Trump Friday for publicly thanking her father for ending family separation at the border. The same outlets that complain that President Trump’s daughter doesn’t ‘publicly speak up enough’ bash her when she does. It’s a lose lose situation for the First family- when it comes to the liberal media.
“How sick for someone in the White House to tweet thank you to Donald Trump for these reunions,” she added. “Because these reunions, they should have never happened. These children should have never been taken away from their parents.”
Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families
“Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families”, Ivanka Trump wrote.
How utterly sick!” Brzezinski continued. “This is not where we need to be. And at some point I pray all Americans get it. But I get when I see what happened at this rally last night, the people clapping when they’re hearing lies, I get that all of you are part of creating a big lie for this presidency and protecting something that is utterly un-American.”
“We’re talking about Ivanka Trump congratulating her father for ending a policy that he started,” Joe Scarborough claimed, “that caused so much human misery it’s kinda like Donald Trump thanking Kim Jong Un for releasing Americans that Kim Jong Un kidnapped!”
“It’s like you’re thanking the person that created the policy that created the pain and human suffering,” he continued, “for reversing that policy, for trying to fix a situation that they created out of the most base, cynical, political motives.”
Her overly dramatic spin leaves out one key factor, as they all do, and that’s that Congress is responsible for writing laws. It will still be up to Congress to work with the President on a long term solution- which so far they have avoided doing.
While much of the media is presenting the issue as if President Donald Trump directly changed immigration policy so as to call for family separation, the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy merely imposed the laws already on the books.
It is that policy of charging everyone who illegally crosses into the country with a misdemeanor criminal charge that triggers some families to be separated.
