CNN did something really unusual. They went and talked to some real live Trump supporters and asked them what they thought about “family separations.”
Here is what one nice old grandmotherly type said:
“To be perfectly honest, I’m angry at the parents,” she said. “I feel very honestly that it’s their fault that the children have been separated, because they’re bringing them in illegally. And the other thing is, the law that has been put on the books was not put on recently. It was put on back many years ago, and I think very seriously that they need very firmly to say enough is enough.”
She faulted the media for using children to play on people’s emotions.
“I think people need to stop constantly bringing up the poor children, the poor children. The parents are the problems. They’re the ones coming in illegally,” she said. “Quit trying to make us feel teary-eyed for the children. Yes, I love children a great deal, but to me, it’s up to the parents to do things rightfully and legally.”
She pretty much nailed how I feel.
I have noticed that there are a lot of wealthy liberals who are demanding that we do something. I think they should open up their homes to all the “refugees” that reach their front gates. Provide them all with food, shelter, and healthcare. And they should give all their remaining money to charities that feed the hungry. No, not the Clinton Foundation, a real charity.
