C-SPAN caller says Trump should ‘hold out’ for wall: ‘I’m holding out, I’m storing food… I’ve got my gun’

A C-SPAN caller on Tuesday encouraged President Donald Trump to “hold out” for his border wall because she says there is a “one world order” conspiracy to bring undocumented immigrants into the U.S.

Calling on C-SPAN’s independent line, “Linda” from Florida said that she is a former Democrat who supports the border wall.

During her rant, Linda blamed the Democratic Party for creating a “one world government.”

“We’re going to have one world government from the Democrats,” she explained. “If we keep them in here, they’re going to mix us all up, they’re going to make each one of us dislike each other. We’re all one nation, under God, we’re individual people.”

“Our kids in this country are going to jail,” Linda continued, “while we let all these illegal immigrants come over. Not only are they illegal, many of them [are] criminals.”

C-SPAN host John McArdle asked Linda if Trump should “hold out” for the full $5.7 billion for the border wall or take a deal from the Democrats for billions less.

“Hold out!” Linda exclaimed. “I’m holding out. I’m storing my food and water and got my gun. And I’m 70 years old.”

“I’m sick and tired of this new world government and them bringing all these people over here to bring us down to low level again,” she added.

With that, McArdle cut off Linda and introduced the next caller.

C-SPAN caller poisoned by Trump says congresswomen in The Squad own ’27 million black African slaves’

A Republican caller told C-SPAN on Monday that four non-white congresswomen own "27 million black African slaves."

On C-SPAN's Washington Journal program, a woman in Washington called in on the Republican line to rant against members of the so-called Squad: Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ayanna Pressley (MA) and Rashida Tlaib (MI).

Lara began her call by chastising the media.

"There's a lot of facts that are being walked around," she complained. "For example, regarding the Russia-Mueller thing, it's a proven fact that there was false evidence bought by Obama, Clinton and all the rest... those are facts. That's not an opinion."

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday fired back at President Donald Trump after he told her to "go back" to her country of origin -- even though she was born in the U.S.

"It's unfortunate that he feels the way he feels about people of color," Ocasio-Cortez explained to NBC News. "It's unfortunate the way he feels about immigrants, naturalized citizens or not."

"What I would tell him is that it's time to move on from him," she continued as she seemed to choke up. "And it's time to move on from his conception of an America that we tried to move past for a long time."
