Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa in Disney’s smash hit “Frozen,” took to Twitter Saturday to celebrate after numerous news organizations called the presidential election for Joe Biden.

In her tweet, Menzel claimed her son hugged her and said, “mommy no more kids in cages!” Menzel said she cried “Tears of joy and tears of sadness.”

As was quickly pointed out on Twitter, President Donald Trump didn’t build the “cages” to which Menzel was referring. It was former President Barack Obama who built those “cages,” and Biden was Obama’s vice president. The Trump administration continued the policies of the Obama administration in how it handled children illegally crossing the U.S. border from Mexico.

In 2018, any prominent Democrats and left-wing pundits shared an article about kids in cages, using it to smear the Trump administration. The article was actually from 2014, when Obama was president. Former Obama speech writer Jon Favreau later defended the Obama administration’s treatment of migrant children by saying it happened during “an influx of unaccompanied minors who showed up at the border, fleeing violence from Central America.”

He also said that the pictures were taken during a time when the administration was trying to “move those children out of those shelters as fast as humanly possible and connect them with their parents, most of whom were already in the United States.”

No such caveat has been made for Trump, who has faced multiple massive caravans of people traveling to the U.S. from Central America.

The Trump administration enacted a “zero tolerance” policy for illegal border crossings, but instead of sending children into prison with their parents, the children were taken to the same facilities where they were housed under Obama. Democrats and their media supporters failed to acknowledge the complexities of illegal immigration and weren’t asked whether the children should be sent to jail with their parents or whether they thought illegal immigration shouldn’t be considered a crime.

The same sentiments were ignored when illegal immigrant families were held together in the Border Patrol facilities. Democrats and the media decried the facilities without explaining what should be done with the immigrants. Should they have been taken to hotels? Who would pay for that? Would the American people agree to paying for illegal immigrants to be housed? Or perhaps letting them loose on the streets without any accountability?

These questions were never asked. Instead, Trump was demonized for cheap political points.

As to Biden, he never had to answer for the Obama administration’s cages, and Menzel hasn’t acknowledged that her tweet was misinformed.

Further, though media outlets have called the election for Biden, Trump has not conceded, and his campaign has filed lawsuits in several states to look into voting irregularities.

Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser and attorney for the Trump campaign, said in a statement to The Daily Wire that the election is not over.

“Media coordinated efforts are attempting to simply declare Joe Biden the president and ignore the rule of law. There is no official winner until every legal vote is counted accurately, the states certify results, and all legal challenges are resolved,” Ellis said.

Biden, however, has assumed he will be the next president of the United States.

    This “actress” is woefully ignorant of reality and it shows. I feel bad that her child is being brought up in the same vacuum that his mother seems to be wandering through life in.
    FIRST.. It was the obama/biden/clinton administration that built those cages to hold illegal minors in. NOT President Trump!
    SECOND… The election is NOT over and Harris-Biden have NOT WON.
    THIRD… WHO CARES WHAT AN AIRHEAD ACTRESS says anyhow!

  • How very sad that people are so ignorant that they watched Obama put people in cages for real for eight years, but believe “only Trump did it, Obama was the second coming of Christ, you bigots need to stop disagreeing” is valid.

  • Angel says:

    aawwww…. we’ll, got news for you: since Obama created that, I dont think he will let Biden get rid of them…
    are you crying harder now??

  • Joseph says:

    Did he cry when Obama and Biden built and put the kids in cages, or di you forget to tell him that?

  • Bj says:

    He must be a dumb little bastard. He didn’t notice any of those kids in cages during Obama’s reign. Luckily we have pictures. If you can drag your sorry, useless azz off the producer’s couch long enough maybe you could tell your son the truth. He’s going to find out about you sooner or later and he’ll know you lied to him. Try to slip it in between your 4-5 marriage.

  • ED says:

    So, why did she lie to her son about who really put the children in the cages?

  • JOHN BURCHARDT says:

    The #CRIMINALinCHIEF’s plan was nothing like Obama’s, you #DATS are hilarious…how many kids haven’t seen their parents in 3 yrs? We don’t even know where the parents of 545 kids even are…#CluelessConservativeChristianity in action.

    Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

    Published

    on

    Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

    Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

    In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

    “We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

    She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

    “When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

    The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

    “There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

    Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

    “I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

    Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

    “[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

    Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

    Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

    “I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

    “I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

    The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

    WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

    Published

    on

    President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

    Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

    At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

    House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

    During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

    But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

    Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

    On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

    White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

    Published

    on

    The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

    “The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

    “During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

    “TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

    “In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

    Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

    “The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

    New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

    Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
