Brooke Baldwin

As tensions continue to escalate on the left over immigrant family separations at the border, one lone CNN anchor exposed the hypocrisy of the left by calling out a U.S. Senator for not protesting when the Obama administration kept children in cages and shipped children to New York and other states.

CNN Anchor Brooke Baldwin interviewed Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis., no relation) about the turmoil at the border.

After listening to Senator Baldwin criticize the Trump administration for "something that I think violated all American values," Brooke Baldwin turned the tables on the senator.

Brooke mentioned photos of immigrant children sleeping in cages with foil blankets -- images that were taken in 2014 while Obama was in office.

"And so as so many people in this country are certainly outraged by the cages, and the thermal blankets, and the facilities housing these kids, you know, they were all there in 2014 under President Obama. And my question to you, Senator Baldwin, is did you speak up against them then?"

Caught off guard, the senator stuttered and avoided answering the question.

"You know, on the, on this issue that we get into a moment where we’re making progress and then when it, uh, when it stalls, we turn around. I think we all need to continue to be focused on it and press it through. The American people need confidence that we can solve problems. Nobody believes that we have an immigration system that works. It is broken. It needs fixing. And we’ve just got to resolve to do that."

But Brooke didn't let the senator off the hook. She pressed her to answer the original question.

"But were you worried about it then? Did you raise your voice under the Obama Administration?"

The senator replied that she emailed Obama privately about one particular child, but she didn't raise her voice in the media like she's doing now.

"You know, in numbers of cases, usually, I remember a constituent who was in detention at the border, arguably very inappropriately," Sen. Baldwin replied. "And, we, you know, we raised our voice in that instance and many others. But that's, we've got to do this now in unison. It's not enough to do it case by case for a Senator or a House member by House member. We’ve got to resolve to fix this issue."

    Black folks have too many issues to concern ourselves with issues that don't affect us......Mexicans have to hold your own nuts.....Because when they get over here they practice white supremacy too.......That's not our fault yall took chances with yall babies to get over here.....The Mexicans need to deal with their government and its issues over there. We need to keep and save our energy for our fight/fights......Sorry but it's not my (our) problems.......

  • iWasteTime

    President Obama's administration and the others since 1997 did separate children who came ILLEGALLY with their family.
    The 2700 plus kids and families aren't crossing illegally. They are seeking asylum which is NOT Illegal. 45 has been talking and tweeting about thees asylum seekers since they started their trek from South America to North America.
    In order to lead you have to be educated enough to know the difference and act accordingly

  • dontgetblocked

    Of course not. Everything that Obama did was perfect. President Trump is fixing all of Obama's screw ups. He was too busy having WH parties with rappers. My President has Made America Great Again! We have the lowest unemployment rate for black people in 40 years. Don't listen to the liberals. Get your money. Separated Mexican kids aren't my problem. They don't like blacks anyway. How many illegal aliens joined the Black Lives Matter movement? They can put together their own Mexican Lives Matter group and stop jumping fences and crawling through tunnels to get to America.

  • dontgetblocked

    What about the black immigrants seeking asylum? They send them right back. How are they seeking asylum from South America? They're illegally seeking the America life. Come on now.

    Trumps 1st lie/spin:
    There's no policy to take kids from their parents."

    2nd spin: "Yeah, there's a policy to take kids from their parents, but it's the Democrats fault."

    3rd spin: Congress must solve this problem

    Today, "Trump will reverse his policy"

    Trump's a malignant lying sack of sh/t.

    There you have it.

  • xenaD

    Same thing I said! Same exact thing I was saying yesterday! ?????

  • Pitty Patty

    The difference that Obama TEMPORARILY detained unaccompanied minors until relatives/and or parents were able to identify and retrieve the children. And they weren't getting prosecuted like criminals. And another point. Obama is not the damn president no more. Get off his nuts.

    Trump is basically trying to make America Nazi Germany. And its happening right before our eyes. NOW its illegal immigrants, NEXT it will be anybody with African blood etc...This IS everybody problem. This is an American problem.

  • Nophace

    You may be right but some folks were too busy focusing on the fact that he was half Black and had a cool walk to even care what he did.

  • Pitty Patty

    And where the hell are the missing girls. They seem not to be accounted for. The government is selling them kids to the highest bidder. Sex trafficking and organ selling.

    WE ARE NOT BLIND!

  • the guest

    The anchor is right. It is important to be consistent in criticism and protest in order affect real and positive change.

    Whether under Obama or under Trump, separating children from their parents and placing children in kennel like conditions is inhumane and unacceptable.

    As parents, our first concern should always be the safety, health, and well being of our children. If there is any risk of losing or being separated from our children under an illegal immigration policy of any country, a parent should not attempt to enter the country illegally.

    I know there are proud and dignified people in Mexico, in El Salvador, in Europe, all over the world who do not wish to be in the US at the expense of their children.

    Believe it or not but there are millions of people everywhere who do not worship the US and have no desire to live in the US or become US citizens.

  • dontgetblocked

    Yes we are. Crying over the children of a group of people who hate us. We need to protect our own. Where are the missing black girls? Where's the outcry about our children who are endangered? Those Mexican kids are getting treated better in confinement than they were walking across the desert barefoot to get to America.

  • the guest

    EXACTLY.

  • Phillybruh

    The issue I have with the Media is they reported all this back then and explained the reasons why, Children were not separated from their parents, they were sent here because word spread that if they got here by a certain date they would be considered dreamers and would not be deported that is why there was an influx of unaccompanied minors crossing the border. What this administration did was charge the parents with a crime and then classified the children as unaccompanied. It is not the same. The media is the reason this fool is in the Whitehouse kept giving him pass after pass because he was good for ratings.

  • Karen Brady

    "Mexicans have to hold your own nuts... " Too early in the day. Too early. teee heee

  • Phillybruh

    Because what the Obama administration did was not the same as this mess.

  • francine

    Thank you!

  • Phillybruh

    I would agree with you, if those crossing the boarders were Mexican 96% of them are not.

  • iWasteTime

    Asylum seekers are not sent right back, no matter where they are from. We either deny them out right and don't accept i.e. Syrians and Libyans or they arrive here and go through the process and are granted asylum, directed to another country or sent back.

    How are they seeking asylum from South America?
    ------------------------
    South America is a continent with 20 plus countries or regions. In Venezuela for example people stand on long lines for basic needs including food and toiletries. There are days where whole families do not eat due to not being able to pay the exuberant prices for eggs, bread milk etc
    Some have to walk miles for basic medical treatment. This is do to an corrupt and heavily sanctioned government.

    We can all answer that question? Its NO they didnt... Its a fake issue that Democrats wanted to politicize... Like the guy walking around on fathers day they were using Pictures from 2014 showing people... It was fake.... But the drama was effective because the people bit...
    Why are they not saying anything about the sorry poor excuse for parents trying to do a crime with their children... What god awful Parents.. if they were black everybody would be on the Illegal Aliens...
    Now why did they not say anything about Bill CLinton keeping all those Haitians in Guatanomo Bay... Bill Clinton had AIDS camps... and they didnt even give some of the extremely sick Medicine and they really did DIE.... The Democrats are frauds fakes. Supporting illegal Immigration but wont stand with black lives matter... or prison reform for Americans.
    Oh wells they send the illegal children to the minority sides of town to help further mess up the education system. They take tax dollars away from American kids to teach them the language etc.

    The Democratic Party uses these type of tactics whenever they feel their voting block is slipping... They come up with a polarizing race issues to divide... because a lot of people are looking at them differently...... So they are like Ohhhh look at the mean border patrol they are seperating families of illegal ALiens and then they fail to tell the full truth that the people leave the kids. Dont pick up the children and refuse to show up for the court date. They break the law go around the law and thats a privilege that Liberals and even some Republicans dont mind.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    ???

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I agree

  • shelly

    Fact check , Bush and Obama did not have policies that resulted in mass separation. Under Trump 2,342 kids have been separated from their parents. DHS could not provide any statistics of kids being separated under Obama. So do your homework people it’s very easy.

  • JV

    It is indeed very easy. Under a 1997 consent stipulation, a child cannot be detained for more than 20 days. The families were held together during that time. Prior to 20 days, the offending parent or parents are either prosecuted for crossing the border illegally, or everyone is sent packing. No one was separated.

    Like phillybruh stated below, the anchor was referring to an entirely separate issue of a glut of unaccompanied minors crossing the border to gain DACA status. This is head-smackingly simple.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I agree......the first thing came to my mind was what about all the homeless American family's that are still on the street and starving, meanwhile in the so-called concentration camps kids are playing soccer and eating three Square meals a day.

  • Pitty Patty

    I guess I'm just not that intimidated by immigrants. I welcome them over. Some of them have skills we can use in America. Especially if we can get them to properly assimilate. People saying we would be treated like shyt if we tried to get into their country. Of course we would. Thats why they are trying to leave their country. We as American are supposed to be better than all those other third world countries. Not act like one. I think we are taking the Us vs Them thing to far.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't care that much, just pointing out that Mexicans aren't really crossing the boarder.

    Think when it comes down to it, this is the elephant in the room. People are practicing self preservation as if America is going treat blacks better if Hispanics don't exist in large numbers. Lol, its nonsense. People just really don't like Mexicans and instead of black people just saying that, they pretend its about them only caring about black people. Meanwhile somewhere in America a black man is killing another black man for no reason at all, but that don't matter cause we are all we got........smh. I am all for black pride, but we need to stop pretending to be naive about life. Just because we are under the gun doesn't mean we have to look past other t people of different races getting done dirty. And it doesn't mean we have to pretend every black man is our brother, when some of these fools would kill your whole family without even blinking......

    The black race needs to make their minds up, are we soldiers or victims? You can't be both. Stop straddling the fence. Either be grown ups and stop being scared of white people or kneel down like cowards and keep pining for their affections by siding with their racist actions to preserver their own racial domination.......

    No, Donald Trump’s separation of immigrant families was not Barack Obama’s policy

    By John Kruzel on Tuesday, June 19th, 2018 at 7:32 a.m.

    http://static.politifact.com.s3.amazonaws.com/politifact/photos/800.jpg
    In this photo provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, people who’ve been taken into custody related to cases of illegal entry into the United States, sit in one of the cages at a facility in McAllen, Texas, June 17, 2018. (via AP)

    Critics of the Trump administration’s separating of families illegally crossing the U.S. border with Mexico have characterized the practice as a distinctly cruel feature of Donald Trump’s presidency.

    But some Republican commentators argue the policy is essentially a continuation of previous administrations.

    "You know what's ironic? It's the same way Barack Obama did it," conservative commentator Matt Schlapp said during the June 15 broadcast of Fox News' America's Newsroom. "This is the problem with all of these things, the outrage you see coming from the left. There wasn't outrage over Barack Obama separating kids from adults."

    While the Obama administration's immigration approach was not without controversy, it’s simply untrue to say he had a policy of separating families.

    Trump policy

    Let’s recap what the Trump administration is doing, before turning to Obama’s handling of immigration.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions in April announced a "zero-tolerance" policy, meaning every person caught crossing the border illegally would be referred for federal prosecution.

    A good number of these people are adult migrants traveling with children. By law, when adults are detained and criminally prosecuted, their children cannot be housed with them in jail. Instead, kids are placed in a Department of Health and Human Services shelter until they can be released to a legal guardian.

    Some 2,000 children have been separated from the adults they were traveling with across the U.S. border, according to the latest figures from the Department of Homeland Security. The children were separated from 1,940 adults from April 19 through May 31 as a result of border-crossing prosecutions.

    Obama policy

    Immigration experts we spoke to said Obama-era policies did lead to some family separations, but only relatively rarely, and nowhere near the rate of the Trump administration. (A Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman said the Obama administration did not count the number of families separated at the border.)

    "Obama generally refrained from prosecution in cases involving adults who crossed the border with their kids," said Peter Margulies, an immigration law and national security law professor at Roger Williams University School of Law. "In contrast, the current administration has chosen to prosecute adult border-crossers, even when they have kids. That's a choice — one fundamentally different from the choice made by both Obama and previous presidents of both parties."

    Denise Gilman, a law professor who directs the immigration clinic at the University of Texas School of Law, said immigration attorneys "occasionally" saw separated families under the Obama administration.

    "However, these families were usually reunited quite quickly once identified," she said, "even if that meant release of a parent from adult detention."

    In Trump’s case, family separations are a feature, not a bug, of the administration’s border policies, said David Fitzgerald, who co-directs the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies.

    "The family separations are not the small-scale collateral consequences of a border policy, but rather, a deliberate initiative," he added.

    Former Obama officials in recent interviews drew sharp distinctions between Trump’s policy and that of his predecessors.

    The Trump administration's current approach is modeled after Operation Streamline, a 2005 program under the administration of George W. Bush, according to Obama spokesman Eric Schultz. The key difference, he said, is that while the 2005 program referred all illegal immigrants for prosecution, it made exceptions for adults traveling with children.

    Jeh Johnson, Obama’s Homeland Security secretary from 2013 to the end of his presidency, said such separations occurred in rare cases, but never as a matter of policy.

    "I can't say that it never happened. There may have been some exigent situation, some emergency," Johnson told NPR June 9. "There may have been some doubt about whether the adult accompanying the child was in fact the parent of the child. I can't say it never happened — but not as a matter of policy or practice. It's not something that I could ask our Border Patrol or our immigration enforcement personnel to do."

    Obama’s top domestic policy adviser, Cecilia Muñoz, said the Obama administration briefly weighed the separation of parents from children, before deciding against it.

    "I do remember looking at each other like, ‘We’re not going to do this, are we?’ We spent five minutes thinking it through and concluded that it was a bad idea," she told the New York Times. "The morality of it was clear — that’s not who we are."

    Andrew Selee, president of the Migration Policy Institute, said that, as a deterrent, the Obama administration began prosecuting border-crossers who had already been deported at least once.

    "But very few of those people crossed with children, so it didn’t become as visible an issue," he said. "There was some child separation and some pushback by immigrant advocacy groups around that, but the numbers were quite limited.

    "The idea of prosecuting people who cross the border illegally the first time they are caught is entirely new," he added. "So we haven’t seen children separated from their parents on anything near this scale before."

    The Obama administration’s immigration policy was not without controversy, to be sure.

    In 2014, amid an influx of asylum seekers from Central America, the administration established large family detention centers to hold parents and children — potentially indefinitely — as a means of deterring other asylees. The practice eventually lost a legal challenge, resulting in a 2016 decision that stopped families from being detained together.

    Schlapp told us that his claim referred to the fact that both Obama and Trump are bound by the same procedures prohibiting family detention.

    However, Schlapp’s full comment gives the misleading impression that Trump is essentially continuing Obama’s policy, when in fact Trump’s zero tolerance policy is quite different.

    Our ruling

    Schlapp said the Trump administration’s policy of separating families is "the same way Barack Obama did it."

    Obama’s immigration policy specifically sought to avoid breaking up families. While some children were separated from their parents under Obama, this was relatively rare, and occurred at a far lower rate than under Trump, where the practice flows from a zero tolerance approach to illegal border-crossings.

    We rate this False.

    But the flaw in your argument was this wasn't started by the democrats his administration was releasing pictures. And the media does what the media is supposed too do asked questions about them and then when they the inept administration could answer the simplest of questions the media looked into it more. And here we are. Then it became the democrats this and republicans, mind you they control both house and the senate and the executive branch. And they can't get anything done and they have controlled both of them for 4 years now.

  • EMILY POST

    There you go blaming Donald Trump... The flaw in almost all your post is you too caught up with Donald Trump. Donald Trump may have a F'd up delivery and no he is no way as smooth as Obama when it comes to messages.... but he did not create the illegal immigration crisis and shame on the fools who have allowed Democrats to give him that blame while they sat back ignoring it and it impacts their voters first and they know about it..... Anybody who has ever lived in a border state knows how crazy illegal immigration is... Most of the parties just ignore it and pass it off to the poor neighborhoods. It has been a big huge problem that both parties have ignored until now.. but the Democrats are todays nut cases.

They continue to make & carry out policies that are not for our good on a daily, we just dont hear about it. The problem has and always will be not dem vs rep, its rich/people in power vs poor/middle class/not in that 1%. We need to get with our own families and teach them to navigate in these systems. Thats when you can have a better life for your own individual families. Injustices happen everywhere. Every city, every country. That is life and it will only get worse. Come on people its happening right before our faces. Stop focusing on trying to belong to a group, a race, a political party, a religion, activists, movement. Belong to God & your family cause this if " we humans/citizens stick together" is a lie.

    This whole hate Trump and Melania and Ivanka and Barron and the other sons and the wives and their kids thing is just too much. Most Americans don't care anymore. He won the election. Get over it and vote in 2020. Sore losers and whiners. That's the Democratic party.

  • Phillybruh

    Nowhere do I blame him for the immigration crisis. But this here issue is self inflicted and no one is too blame but Donald Trump. But seriously at what point in his Presidency does it become his. He's two and half years in. And once he decides to act on a policy it becomes his. So yes he owns this now, just like he owns healthcare ( that he still hasn't delivered on). At what point will yall hold him accountable?

  • Phillybruh

    Then why are yall still here? Why do yall find your way on to these very stories that no one cares about.

  • dontgetblocked

    The Democratic party is lost. Folks would be surprised to learn who supports President Trump. That person sitting quietly next to you at work, at the dentist, behind you in the grocery line...secretly voted for him. That's why he won. Liberal will never be able to gauge how many supporters he has because they persecute anyone who speaks out. People think I'm a black liberal woman. Guess who I voted for?

  • Phillybruh

    Why in secret though. I guess just like him they don't want too own the shit they do.

  • Cats Gold

    Black is a color not a person. When did you poll "Black People" and ask them do they dislike Mexicans? Did you hold a town meeting with "Black People"? Are you President of the American "Black" Association? Are "Black " people a monolithic group? If you care so much about "Black on Black" crime come up with a solution and implement that stop complaining get off your butt and be proactive. We are all human beings stop putting yourself and others in the "Black Box". Black is a color in a crayon box not a human being or group!

  • dontgetblocked

    How many black kids only eat one meal...at school? Some schools don't close on snow days because they know that's the only way the kids will eat. Sigh. I can't with this mess.

  • Cats Gold

    Black is a color in a crayon box not a person.

  • dontgetblocked

    Somebody has to do it. They have gotten on my nerves with this nonsense.

  • dontgetblocked

    What they aren't is AMERICAN!! And they're not black. Not my problem.

  • Cats Gold

    Let go of your divisive mindset we are ALL human beings!

  • Cats Gold

    Stop being divisive we need to ALL come together.

  • EMILY POST

    lol Thats exactly what you do to throw them off. Like when the ask you on some of those surveys... Who gives out their real political opinion in todays climate.

  • dontgetblocked

    Ooops. There it is. The parents broke the law.

  • Cats Gold

    Black people need to stop killing each other. Its self inflicted no one else to blame.

  • dontgetblocked

    He was crying. Sweet Jesus! We always have a bleeding heart for those who give us the cold shoulder. I can't. I just can't.

  • dontgetblocked

    Sounds like the hood in any American city to me. Only difference is black folks have to dodge gunfire. Where do we seek asylum???

  • dontgetblocked

    I need some some receipts on that "fact". Remember they're undocumented and sneaking into the country.

  • Mob67

    Under Obama, the kids that were shipped off came to the US as unaccompanied minors, i.e., THEY CAME OVER BY THEMSELVES. NO PARENTS, ADULTS, etc. were with them. Now unaccompanied minors AND accompanied minors (ones who are with their moms and dads) are being shipped off to other states. Past administrations (Republican and Democrat) NEVER separated ACCOMPANIED minors. But don't let the facts get in the way Auntie...smdh.

  • Cannelle

    I'd like to provide another perspective. Here goes:

    There are sooo many issues in the world today, it is humanly impossible to care/fight for them all. If any of us tried, we would be completely consumed with desperation and despair. Therefore, some issues will go unaddressed by some people. That doesn't mean that we don't think these issues are horrible.

    Each person gets to decide what matters most to them and focus on that. Everyone does it, no matter their background. One example of this is the majority of non-black Americans who don't seem to care much about BLM movement. Another good example are the majority of non-disabled people who don't care much about disabled rights (apologies for the terminology). We can and do work on getting as many people as possible to see our POV, but have to accept that this will not be the case or everyone.

    So with that said, black people who state that black Americans already have many problems that they'd rather focus on (the poster who responded to you agreed) may not necessarily be intimidated by immigrants. They may mean that the majority of their emotional capacity and physical willpower will not be spent on this particular issue, but on themselves.

  • Phillybruh

    You kinda do since they aren't Mexicans...lol

  • dontgetblocked

    Every single underage illegal alien was an unaccompanied minor? Come on now. I need some receipts and lots of them.

  • dontgetblocked

    If he stole the election, so did Obama. Every president is elected through the electoral college. Do your research.

  • Mob67

    That's always been the policy until now. But these days the sun rises in the east and sets in the south...so receipts aren't worth a damn.

  • TheOwley

    Does she still have a job at CNN?

  • AGlassofPinotGrigio?

    This?

  • TheOwley

    Seems she gets her news from CNN, a site owned by democrats and the Clintons.

  • AGlassofPinotGrigio?

    Anytime this guy in the WH signs an Executive Order, he goes to have a late night rally to see if his base is pleased with what he has done. He can't function unless he has idiots cheering him on.

    ? Facts!

  • AGlassofPinotGrigio?

    Including Sandra, they don't because it didn't happen under his or Bush Administration.....but these days facts doesn't matter.

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly...These zombies are in a box of group think but they actually believe the spoon-fed views they get are credible.

    These zombies have actually been brainwashed to believe they're intelligent therefore they're often perplexed when independent thinkers disagree with them because they actually believe the propaganda they're fed is truth.

    They tell people to "fact check" liberal "fact checking sites".They can't even comprehend the irony in that.

  • Elevated Soul

    Bingo!!!!!...They think I'm liberal too just because I'm Black.

    I use to be a liberal (LMAO) but now I'm an Independent who supports President Trump because his policies are best for Black people and I am smart enough to know that.

    I 'd never voted for a Republican until 2016.I was 19 in 2012 and voted for Obama! I was so happy to vote for President Trump and that was the best vote I'd ever casted.

  • TheOwley

    People have been conditioned to think only one way. I actually leave US news sites and read from foreign journalists who don't have dog in the fight.

  • Karmen

    I could not have said this better! Watch what people do,not what they say. Following blindly without thinking, will lead you straight to hell. You'll spend eternity wondering how you got there. I teach my children to think critically.

  • Allison Derico

    Those children were unaccompanied minors back then; what does that have to do with fixing the current situation? Sandra, what is it going to take for you to do better?

  • Rhondalousey

    So sorry for them but dont finally get to the US and act like ur better than blacks. You know the routine, they do it wvery time.

  • Elevated Soul

    That dude is gay and like many gays he see Obama as a gay icon. Obama used politics which was done to make gays feel relevant.

    Obama pushed the gay agenda to the mainstream which makes him iconic to dudes like Philly,which is why I usually skip over anything he says because h's simply not rational.

  • Rhondalousey

    Omg, without looking at your comment l just typed that.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Brooke is so fine.

  • Phillybruh

    That's odd I hardly respond to anything you posts you remind me of my angry uncle whose a rebel with out a cause whose still living off my grandmother whose been dead for 10 years.

  • EMILY POST

    Hell did you see the documentary on how they treated blacks in Mexico.... lol They have blacks that been there for 200 yrs and they wont even acknowledge them as citizens... These idiots supporting Democrats and their political foolery.

  • EMILY POST

    You stay blaming Donald Trump.... for everything... Just like the idiots over there on NBC and CNN.... Its so sad they have a problem with ICE trying to control the border they are hiring for those that need a job... Yet they dont have any energy for the black teen who ran from the police and was murdered.... but they have all the energy in the world for the Illegal alien running across the border and from ICE placed in the detention center ....

  • Mike Love

    SO WHAT THEY WERE PUT IN HOLDING CELLS AKA CAGES BUT TO THE LIBERAL MIND THAT DOESNT MATTER ONLY THE HATRED FOR TRUMP

  • BingBangBoom

    End of story! You won't convince me otherwise

  • abby500

    I’m all for that but trust us needed.

  • abby500

    I agree. I know blacks who voted for him. Hey it’s their right.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Great minds think alike.......I'm so serious.....You got black folks feeling sorry.....NOT HERE.......

  • P0shzZ0la

    Like I say..."Trump may not be perfect but he's PERFECT for what America needs right now." Obama was about the feminine principal and he was very lose about the law and discipline. He's actually a bona-fide socialist/communist and should have never been in office. Now daddy's home (Trump) and all of Obama's undisciplined children don't like it because Trump is trying to actually...FOLLOW THE LAW....! They covered for Obama because he was as corrupt as they come...this is what happens when people get positions because of "diversity engineering." Obama obeyed his white liberal masters well. But Trump is no slave and "the establishment" can't stand it....!

  • the watcher

    so where were they suppose to be kept at the waldorf astoria?

  • P0shzZ0la
  • the watcher

    well said my friend! well said said!

  • Elevated Soul

    You wrote the perfect analogy to what is really going on!!!!

  • Mark mcharm

    No he stole the election with Russian help Stevie Wonder can see that and History will not be kind to this incompetent,immoral small hand idiot and his zealots,the electoral college its just one other token of stupidity when dealing with American elections that when YOU read it makes zero sense within itself.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Stopped reading after the first sentence. Sorry hate non thinking politically correct nonsense. You consider yourself a black person and white people white......its not a derivative of a crayon its a world wide accepted description of a person of African heritage or descent. Now stop beating around the bush, and either combat my statement real a real thought provoked response. Or don't quote me.

  • Mike Love

    Hey to tell you the truth I don’t care what they do to them fuck those kids and the parents too don’t come here illegally I was stating that not only under obama were they separated they were put in cages to but democrats don’t care about that only this blind hatred for President Trump

  • the watcher

    Well, don't you think trump has something to do with all the hatred towards him? You can't call a whole race of people rapist and drug dealers? Calling NFL players SOB's because they are peacefully protesting sayin that a whole race of people shouldn't be allowed in this country because of their religious beliefs. Now I don't believe anyone should just be able to just walk into this country because I can't do the same to their country. But this president has truly divided this country since he took office. You didn't get this racist division bs coming from bush and the other republican presidents like you have with trump and his administration.

  • Coffy

    Both parties suck, I lean in the middle, I am sick of Dems wanting to let everyone come here who wants to. Where are the Dems when an innocent Black person gets shot in the back, where is their anger then. They all make me sick, except Corey Booker. Hahahaha
