Trump Now Claims 'Humanitarian Crisis' at Border


January 8, 2019 at 6:43 am EST By Taegan Goddard

Playbook: “The White House is increasingly positioning the situation at the southern border as a global humanitarian crisis of epic proportions, for which the same old solutions will not be sufficient. Sure, they’re still talking about the wall — on which they are demanding Congress spend $5.7 billion — but this new line of thinking is taking increased prominence. Expect to hear it tonight from President Trump during his address to the nation.”

“The administration is trying to shove off the politics of the wall, and turn the focus to what they consider the humanitarian impact. Basically, the administration is trying to move the narrative away from politics and to national security, even though this issue has been — and continues to be — part and parcel to Trump’s political rallying cry.”

1. A humanitarian crisis? Like putting children in cages or destroying water-reserves in the desert?

2. Children in cages.

That's the humanitarian crisis. And someone need to be tried for crimes against humanity.

4. So....how best to solve this "crisis"?

How about at the source, the beginning of the problem not the end.

Prevention. Use the resources of our nation to improve living conditions in Central American nations.

Boy howdy, if there was oil there instead of bananas.....

5. our historian pres (USSR now Russia) should study what we did to democracy

in these counties where refugees are fleeing and stop putting the problem on Mexico
closing the border or hitting them with teargas will not help

6. Let's all join the "Reason-of-the-Day for the Wall Club."

Sunday - Caravan of terrorists and rapists
Monday - Disease-carrying Muslim terrorists
Tuesday - Global humanitarian crisis of epic proportions (huh?)
Wednesday - Children (potential terrorists) who need to be separated from parents for their own good
Thursday - People with brown skins carrying diseased terrorist children and raping every cow in sight
Friday - Meatless Friday
Saturday - Two caravans and a partridge in a pear tree

I am reminded of Helen Thomas' question to Dubya (paraphrased): "You've given this reason and that reason and another reason for the invasion of Iraq. Why did you really invade?"

It got her kicked out of the front row center seat in the briefing room that had been hers for decades.
