Lies, lies, and more damned lies.
That’s a good way to describe Illinois Democrat Congressional candidate Lauren Underwood’s TV ads.
Though Lauren studied nursing in college, the “Naperville Nurse Running for Congress” never once practiced in real life.
She headed straight for DC after graduating to intern for Barack Obama, unlike her peers who remained in the nursing profession.
And yet, Underwood wants voters to think she’s actually a nurse.
From Kane County Reporter:
In college, congressional candidate Lauren Underwood studied to be a nurse.
Her University of Michigan classmates spent their summers working at hospitals, assisting doctors and learning on the job. But Underwood headed to Washington, D.C., instead, to intern for then-U.S. Senator Barack Obama.
“ICU (intensive care unit) or mother-baby, like that just wasn’t my interest,” she told former Obama campaign staffer turned podcaster Ravi Gupta on his show, “The Arena,” back in April. “I always knew that this policy space was where I would land.”
But she just moved back to her native Naperville last year. And while she’s registered to practice nursing, she never has, in Illinois, nor anywhere else.
In 2015, Hillary Clinton boasted about voting to build “barriers” on the southern border to keep out illegal aliens while she was a senator.
In 2009, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said illegal immigration is “wrong.”
However, President Donald Trump chose to tweet out a 2005 clip of former President Barack Obama basically saying illegals were not welcome in America, noting that illegals “disrespect the rule of law.”
Obama: “Those who come here illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for following the law. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”
Trump agrees with Obama.
