I just watched 45's "Breaking News" on MS13 arrests.

They showed a map that I thought indicated where most MS-13 activity and arrests happened, hence the Special Breaking news. After Barr spoke 45 started talking about Liberals and Democrats, Seattle and Portland. Washington and Oregon were not on the map!!!

I know I haven't had enough coffee to follow his disjointed rambling, can someone with more tolerance to his jubberish tell me I'm wrong.

P.S. why did he invite the press if he wouldn't take questions?!

Answer: it was all a distraction.

Republicans went all in on MS-13 for the 2018 mid-terms and it was a total disaster because people were more concerned about healthcare.

Hmm, I wonder if there's anything going on in the world right now that people consider to be more important than MS-13?

He's convinced himself he can do the same thing he did last time. He knows racists want to vote for him. Unfortunately for him, he's alienated all the mild racists with his COVID response disaster.

That was ridiculous and went away immediately after the mid-terms.

I didn't see or her anything about invasions after.
