Bill Maher and Chelsea Handler team up to hilariously destroy Trump’s lies about the ‘migrant caravan’

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s strategy for the midterm elections is to raise fears about a group of several thousand Central American migrants walking toward the united States to seek asylum.

The so-called “caravan” is still thousands of miles away, but Trump has dispatched the army to the border with orders to shoot anyone who throws a rock at them.

Trump has also made outrageous claims about the people participating in the walk, claiming that there are dangerous hardened criminals among the desperately poor people walking thousands of miles.

On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher discussed the migrants with a panel that included comedian Chelsea Handler. Together, they hilariously mocked Trump’s lies.

“He said there are gang members, lepers, people with smallpox, TB… It’s this refillable cup of everything bad,” Maher said. “He said there’s terrorists in there from the middle east—why would you come from the middle east to come up from Honduras almost 2,000 miles away?”

Fox News personalities are picking up on the chance to invent threats in the caravan, Maher said.

“Jeanine Pirro said today, there are pedophiles, career criminals and wife beaters,” Maher said. “Who isn’t in this caravan?”

“Meanwhile, you just described like the entire White House,” Handler said.

Maher then shared an “internal strategy memo” of other people Trump will be claiming are in the caravan.

Since 2017, he has been known for his stunts and conspiracy theories intended to discredit the Russia investigation and throw suspicion on anyone who looks into Trump's conduct.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

The conservative Washington Examiner trolled President Donald Trump for his failure to construct any new border barricade during his 30 months in office.

On Monday, Trump lashed out at the media on Twitter for not giving him positive coverage for his wall, which he erroneously claimed would be paid for by Mexico.

The Examiner replied to Trump on Twitter, posting an article headlined, "Trump has not built a single mile of new border fence after 30 months in office."

Here’s how a new study implies the Supreme Court has killed 16,000 people since 2012

A new paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research looked into the effects of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion to people below 138 percent of the poverty line, which has seen nearly 15 million people enrolled in participating states. The results were encouraging: the mortality rate for near-elderly adults has dropped over 9 percent in the four years for which data is available.

But while this is cause for celebration, The Atlantic staff writer Annie Lowrey offered a darker take on the implications of these numbers:
