“It’s ignorant. It’s stupid. It’s wrong.”
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle unloaded on Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade on Friday after he made a disgusting comment about immigrant children on his show.
Friday morning, Kilmeade said on-air, “Like it or not, these aren’t our kids. “Show them compassion, but it’s not like he [Trump] is doing this to the people of Idaho or, uh, or, uh, Texas. These are people from another country.”
He added, “And now people are saying that they’re more important than people in our country who are paying taxes and who have needs as well.”
After showing a clip with Kilmeade’s comments, Ruhle couldn’t hide her disgust.
“I don’t think there’s anyone who is saying a life of a child in Idaho or Iowa means less than someone on the other side of the border,” Ruhle said. “I think this is about humanity and the mistreatment of children.”
“If you are so worried about how every American child is being treated, think about the money that is being blown, that is being spent, that is being flushed down a toilet for this political theater,” she continued.
“This, however, is noise and nonsense, and a crisis created by the president,” Ruhle added. “So please, with your propaganda that anyone is putting the life of a migrant child ahead of the life of an American child is simply nonsense. It’s ignorant. It’s stupid. It’s wrong.”
Thank you Stephanie for saying what we’re all thinking.
