Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Thursday seemed totally unconcerned that the Trump administration has no plans to reunite the 2,300 immigrant children who have been separated from their parents as part of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy.
During a CNN interview, host John Berman asked Jordan if he was not alarmed that “the administration doesn’t have a plan to reunite these 2,300 kids their parents.”
Jordan responded by saying family separation was no longer an issue worth discussing.
“The president signed an executive order yesterday!” Jordan said.
“That is not about reunification,” Berman interjected. “That is about what to do going forward.”
Jordan, however, was unfazed by this and continued to insist that the executive order reversing the Trump administration’s policy of separating immigrant families was good enough.
“He signed an executive order yesterday,” Jordan insisted. “What else do you want?”
“You show me in the executive order where he says anything about reuniting the people already separated,” Berman shot back. “He doesn’t say anything about reuniting those kids with their parents.”

Trump’s ‘stupid’ call to Kemp ‘bordered on criminality’: Ex-Senate leader Harry Reid
On CNN Saturday, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) tore into President Donald Trump for his phone call demanding the governor of Georgia convene the legislature to overturn the election.
"Trump is out of touch with reality," said Reid. "The Republican secretary of state in Georgia has been very strong. Georgia is a state that is not going to allow this foolishness to continue. They had an election. They've proved it. They certified it. And I think that Trump is wasting his time. Georgia is not going to have its reputation ruined by some stupid damn thing that Trump is trying to do that is outside the realm of reality."
She’s ‘gone full MAGA’: Ivanka Trump scrambling to salvage her political aspirations
According to a report from CNN, there has been a noticeable change in the Twitter habits of Ivanka Trump since her father, Donald Trump, lost his re-election bid to former Vice President Joe Biden, with the first daughter now pushing back against critics when she usually fills her tweets with highly-flattering pictures of herself working for the White House.
Now that the Trump family is seeing their dream of a political dynasty slipping away with the loss, both Ivanka and her brother Don Jr. are asserting themselves in different ways to remain viable if they have any hope of running for office one day.
CNN host abruptly ends interview with Georgia’s GOP head for continuing to spout election fraud claims
CNN host Martin Savidge called an abrupt end to an interview with the head of the Georgia Republican Party on Saturday morning after his guest continued to question the results of the 2020 presidential election in his state.
Appearing on CNN on Saturday morning, Republican David Shafer was repeatedly fact-checked by the host as he maintained that there was widespread fraud in Georgia that led to President Donald Trump's loss to former Vice President Joe Biden.
"Mr. Shaffer, do you believe that there is widespread voter fraud in Georgia?" the host asked.
"There are unquestionably problems with the election," the Republican shot back. "We filed a lawsuit yesterday that shows that thousands of votes were cast by inmates in prison, by people who don't live in the state."
