Children are being ripped from their mother’s arms by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents following the policy that children be separated from their parents when crossing the border. After one reporter lost his cool with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace eviscerated the White House press secretary for her lack of empathy.
“It’s been a while since I unloaded on one of these,” Wallace said of the daily press briefing. “That was unbelievable. First all, it is a policy change. That’s lie 4,072 told from the White House podium.”
During the press conference, Sanders attacked the reporters, belittling them for being stupid and saying she had to speak in small sentences. Wallace found that amusing given the limited communication President Donald Trump seems to have.
“Most reporters write longer sentences than the president of the United States,” Wallace said. “So, the idea that she has to speak to them in short sentences so they understand is rude and wrong. It is straight up inhumane.”
She wondered why the White House has the no-tolerance policy but when questioned refuses to own up to being “straight up cruel and inhumane.” She said they should fess up and move on to the next question from reporters.
“If you are going to rip an infant from a mother’s arm, just do it. But she wants to have it both ways and smear the reporters. What was that?” she asked.
MSNBC justice and security analyst Matthew Miller said that like Sanders his father was a Baptist minister, and he can’t help but wonder if Sanders was operating from a different kind of Christianity.
“I think I read a different Bible than her,” Miller said. “The Bible taught me growing up that you are supposed to extend a helping hand to the people in the world that have the least.”
He said that often times people in government have to defend things they don’t completely agree with. This, however, is an outright immoral policy.
