Tea Party lawmaker insists baby jails crisis is over: ‘He signed an order — what else do you want?’

Published

on

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.”

Former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on Sunday blamed Democrats for racism after she was asked about President Donald Trump's controversial bigoted statements.

During an interview on CNN, host Fareed Zakaria asked Rice about some of Trump's most racist statements, like telling Democratic congresswomen to "go back" where they came from. And when he said there were good people on "both sides" at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.

"When you hear Trump, this is a repudiation of everything you were trying to do," Zakaria pointed out.

"The president needs to be a lot more careful," Rice agreed. "Race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have the birth defect of slavery, we have the birth defect of a number of people being treated badly."

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with host Jake Tapper, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took several shots at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) over her desire to attack Iran and her defense of departed White House adviser John Bolton.

Asked about his ongoing feud with the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Paul said the congresswomen is out of touch when it comes to American's taste for war.

“The Iraq War, President Trump has said, was the biggest geopolitical blunder of the last generation," Paul explained. "It destabilized the Middle East and increased the strength of Iran and tipped the balance toward Iran, so really there was nothing good about the Iraq war and Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney and John Bolton still don’t get it. They are still advocating for more regime change in the Middle East.”

On Saturday, CNN anchor S.E. Cupp gave a passionate lecture about the sexism female politicians face during political campaigns.

The host read a quote from a "top" advisor to former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I don't know of anybody who has taken as sustained and vitriolic a negative pounding as Biden ...really the most vicious press I think anyone's experienced,” the Biden advisor told Politico.

"Come again? What's that now?" Cupp asked in disbelief.

"I think there are some women who beg to differ," she noted.
