‘That’s a lot of questions’: Sarah Sanders wilts as Fox host grills her for lying about terrorists on border

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was grilled by Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday over the accuracy of the administration’s talking points about President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.

During an interview on Fox News Sunday, Sanders asserted that “roughly 4,000 known or suspected terrorist come into our country illegally and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border.”

“Wait, wait, wait,” Wallace interrupted. “I know this statistic. I didn’t know you were going to use it, but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4,000 people — where they are captured? Airports!”

“Not always!” Sanders insisted.

“The State Department says there hasn’t been any terrorists that they’ve found coming across the southern border,” Wallace pointed out.

“But the one thing that you’re forgetting is the most vulnerable point of entry that we have is the southern border,” Sanders repeated.

“But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah!” Wallace scolded.

The Fox News host also pressed Sanders about a claim that the president can build a wall on the southern border without authorization from Congress.

“How serious is he about that?” Wallace asked. “Has the White House drafted an emergency border — a resolution that he could announce tomorrow we are declaring a national emergency, we are going to build a wall? Has he set a deadline for when his going to end talks and simply say I’m going to go off on my own and do it?”

“That’s a lot of questions,” Sanders complained.

“Three,” Wallace said, adding, “It’s all the same question. How serious is he? Is he really prepared go off on his own and use money that was authorized for military construction and building wall instead?”

“The president is prepared to do what it takes to protect our borders, protect the people of this country,” Sanders remarked.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

US Fed ‘grappling’ with need for rate cut: Jerome Powell

Published

on

America's grinding trade wars are darkening the economic horizon and could justify a decrease in interest rates, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Tuesday.

But Powell also insisted the central bank was "insulated" from political pressures despite President Donald Trump's persistent criticism of the Fed chairman.

Powell's speech in New York amplified the central bank's recent message that policymakers are ready to step in to protect the world's largest economy, which next week will mark its longest expansion on record but is showing increasing signs of strain.

Markets overwhelmingly expect the Fed to cut rates next month as Trump's trade battles drag on and the global economy slows -- both factors that have begun to dent business confidence and investment in the United States.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
