Over the weekend, left-wing political pundits, celebrities, and news organizations went after First Daughter and White House advisor Ivanka Trump for posting a photo of herself embracing her 2-year-old son. Ivanka was knocked as “tone deaf” and “insensitive” for daring to hold her toddler while our Southern border laws are enforced. Also, unsurprisingly, a number of the attacks were misleading and based on mainstream media misinformation about our longstanding and current immigration policies.

The backlash was triggered by a tweet posted by Ivanka on Sunday, which featured a photo of the 36-year-old mother holding her young son. “My [heart]!” she captioned the tweet.

The sweet photo was enough for the Left to lose it.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who’s known to play fast and loose with the truth, slammed Ivanka for spending time with her son while the Trump Administration is “brutally separating migrant children from their asylum-seeking parents and lost track of 1,500 of them.”

This is untrue, of course. As debunked by The Daily Wire’s James Barrett on Tuesday, the feds have not separated, nor did they “lose” 1,500 children. “The nearly 1,500 children in question came into the country ‘without their parents,’ thus could not have been ‘ripped’ from their parents arms. Nor could they be described as ‘lost,’ as had been initially claimed,” wrote Barrett.

Moreover, the much-hyped 1,500 number initially came from a Department of Health and Human Services survey concerning sponsors of the 7,635 children placed in such homes. As noted by The New York Times, those who were “unaccounted for” are not simply “lost,” but, likely, “some of the adult sponsors simply chose not to respond to the agency.”

Other high-profile leftists echoed the same faulty sentiment:

CNN unsurprisingly ran an entire on-air segment over the “backlash.”

The Trump Administration has been ridiculed by Democrats over Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ latest comments concerning a “zero tolerance” border policy.

“If you cross the border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. It’s that simple,” Sessions told reporters last week, adding, “We don’t want to separate families, but we don’t want families to come to the border illegally and attempt to enter into this country improperly. The parents are subject to prosecution while children may not be. So, if we do our duty and prosecute those cases, then children inevitably for a period of time might be in different conditions.”

As noted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting director Thomas Homan, this isn’t some new blanket policy under AG Sessions, we just happen to be enforcing the laws at a great rate of efficiency under the current administration.

“Every law enforcement agency in this country separates parents from children when they’re arrested for a crime,” he said. “There is no new policy. This has always been the policy. Now, you will see more prosecutions because of the attorney general’s commitment to zero tolerance.”

They willingly put their kids at risk when they climb the border walls, tunnels, fences, etc., to come to the USA without any legal paperwork. So blame it ALL on the parents. It is the fault of the PARENTS ONLY. The kids get fed and treated fairly. So GO HOME or SHUT UP about it!!!

Some just never 'get it'. It's not the United States, our Wonderful President Donald J. Trump and it's not our legitimate immigration and criminal laws that are responsible for separating children from their parents (or other family members), the fault lies with the parents of these children. Whether the parents (or family members) bring or even send these children here, it's the parents who are responsible for EVERYTHING these children are exposed to or have to endure. Those parents and the governments that allowed these illegal immigration are responsible. They know what awful things can and often do happen. They know these children's being separated from family is more than likely. So stop trying to blame our country, our President, our government, our laws, etc for what was the parents decision and therefore the parents guilt.

So what is she supposed to do? Perhaps never hold or hug or kiss her child? I am sooooo sick of this kind of crap. Your lives must be so miserable. But why bring others down to your level?

The first line of the article "left-wing political pundits, celebrities, and news organizations" says it all. They all have optical rectitus. In case that medical term is not recognized, it'when the nerves in a persons eyes get crossed with the nerves in their ass and they can't see for shit. Uum, pretty much cover the socialist dem party and all libs.

We didn't ask for these people to come here. They were told that children cannot be kept in adult facilities, for many reasons, including their own good. They were told that they might be separated from their kids, and they came anyway. Doesn't look like they were all that concerned about the separation when they were climbing over the walls or demanding asylum. They willingly put their kids at risk! Ivanka was just enjoying a beautiful mother/son moment, and why shouldn't she?

I caannot understand the correlation here. What has holding her baby got to do with the children who sneaked over the border. They are being taken care of as best as can be done short of sending them back over to where they came from. Now THAT would be something for the left to complain about.

Last I knew, Ivanka’s son is not an illegal immigrant. The out of control left will find any reason, even if there is no reason, to bash the Trumps. They should be extremely ashamed.

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.”

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.”
