In what appears to be a major deflection from the highly anticipated IG report, CNN’s Jim Acosta joined the Democrat “outrage” over immigration on Thursday.
In the hours before and just after bombshells surfaced from the IG report, Democrats became fixated on families being separated at the border with Pelosi asking why ‘uprisings’ weren’t happening nationwide (video at end). In what was shaping up to be an already highly heated press conference, it seemed Sarah Sanders grew impatient with Acosta for carrying the Dem’s water:
“If I can just ask a second question, completely unrelated, on these children that are being separated from their families as they come across the border. The Attorney General earlier today said that somehow there’s a justification for this in the Bible. Where does it say in the Bible that it’s moral to take children away from their mothers?” he said.
Sanders responded by saying that she wasn’t aware of the AG’s statements, but that it’s Biblical to follow the law.
In an apparent attempt to tie her comments with Jeff Sessions, Acosta blurted out, “You did say it’s in the Bible to follow the law.”
Sanders had enough.
“It’s not what I said and I know it’s hard for you to understand even short sentences, I guess, but please don’t take my words out of context. But the separation of illegal alien families is the product of the same legal loopholes that Democrats refuse to close. These laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade. The President is simply enforcing them.”
After more back and forth and “gasps” from the pearl clutching journos in the room, Sanders finally ended it.
“The Democrats have failed to come to the table, failed to help this president close these loopholes and fix this problem. We don’t want this to be a problem. The President has tried to address it a number of occasions. We’ve laid out a proposal and Democrats simply refuse to do their job and fix the problem.”
Hours earlier, Nancy Pelosi had asked why there hasn’t been an “uprising” against the country over immigration. “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy they defend,” she said.
Pelosi’s remarks happened to coincide with the release of the IG report which will be dissected for weeks to come. But, so far as revealed some pretty big bombshells, including a seemingly very biased Mueller attorney, and FBI text messages that vowed to stop a Trump presidency — messages that were never turned over to Congress.
