There are no shortage of disturbing issues with the liberal left’s stance on border security, not the least of which was on full display last night.
Shortly after President Trump delivered an 8-minute address to the nation on the subject of the southern border, the media spin-machine was turned up to 11. In the immediate aftermath of the Commander in Chief’s speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to the podium, looking eerily similar to the famous Grant Wood painting American Gothic. During their terse, dry, and unconvincing read of their vetted and re-vetted verbiage, the two failed to make any sort of point that resembled a counterattack to the President.
The American people weren’t buying it, with anchors on CNN even visibly disappointed by the lackluster language.

Then came the late night hosts, who again attempted to downplay the severity of what it happening on the border.
“All the major networks covered his speech live, and for good reason,” Jimmy Kimmel began. “It was historic. Rarely does a president of the United States interrupt primetime television to warn us about a completely made-up thing.”
Kimmel then suggested that the speech should be accompanied by the following disclaimer: “The following presidential address is a work of fiction. All personalities, incidents, events, locations and facts were pulled directly from the president’s ass.”
“So with that as a caveat, the president spoke. He did not mention the caravan that was coming to get us three months ago. I don’t know what happened to that, but I guess it disappeared when the election was done,” Kimmel said. “But he does want us to believe there is a crisis at the border beside the one he created. He desperately wants us to be worried about the border.”
Kimmel’s remarks are akin to denial of the horrific conditions that many of the migrants face.
Not only are these human beings subjected to blistering temperatures, dangerous trails, and nefarious ne’er do wells on their journey, but we have already seen at least two instances in which children are dying as a result of their attempts to be marched across the border.
And this doesn’t even take into account the unspeakable and unfathomable things that occur to women and children as they mingle with these hardened smugglers.
If the democrats and the comedians want to downplay the severity of that, they do so at the peril of being labeled “Border Crisis Deniers” – a term purposefully reminiscent of “Holocaust Deniers”.
But, what else do you expect from a man who habitually wore blackface for chuckles?
