Yesterday, Vice President Kamala Harris may have tossed the final straw onto the camel’s back when it comes to breaking the media’s patience with the Biden Administration dodging its self-created border crisis. When asked if she planned to visit the border, Harris laughed – let me repeat that: “laughed” – and said, “Not today!” She might think it’s a laughing matter, but she’s definitely the only one.
Biden may say that the border is closed and migrants shouldn’t come here, but that message is being covered up by the giant WELCOME mat he's rolling out.
While claiming to be discouraging migrants from coming here, he's ceased construction of the border wall, ended deportations, ordered Border Patrol to release illegal border crossers on the US side without even giving them future court dates, and given migrants free food, medical care, education and bus and air fare at taxpayer expense to go wherever they want to go. Now, he's spending $86 million of our money to provide them with hotel rooms.
As Matt Margolis points out, the US has half a million homeless people, many of them veterans, plus National Guard troops camping in a freezing parking garage in DC for no real reason, but Biden is spending $86 million to put illegal immigrants up in hotel rooms. Here’s what a formerly homeless veteran had to say about that: "What I don’t understand is why we can allow our greatest heroes, our American veterans that have gone to fight for this country, that have gone and put their lives on the line and then they come back home and have nowhere to go. And this administration is putting more money into people that have never contributed to this society and to me that is very heartbreaking.
Meanwhile, Project Veritas released more shocking photos of the appalling, cramped conditions inside the facilities for unaccompanied minors that the White House has barred the media from entering.
The obvious humanitarian catastrophe combined with the attempt to cover it up seem to finally be forcing the media to shake off its mancrush on Biden. A CNN correspondent even dared to call the situation on the border a crisis. But Biden spokesperson Jen Psaki, having rejected “crisis” and called the gigantic Biden-created mess a “challenge,” has moved on to a new term: it’s now a “circumstance”:
"Children presenting at our border who are fleeing violence, who are fleeing prosecution, who are fleeing terrible situations is not a crisis. We feel it is our responsibility to humanely approach this circumstance and make sure they are treated, and put into conditions that are safe."
If they were facing the conditions they’re in now only under Trump, Democrats wouldn’t be calling it “humane” or a "circumstance." Maybe Kamala Harris was laughing because she thought of Curly Howard saying, “I’m a victim of coicumstance!”
Let me know when Ms. Psaki finally exhausts all the feeble euphemisms in the “C” section of the dictionary and moves on to “D”: “disaster.”
