The media went nuts yesterday when alleged comments leaked about what Trump said in a private immigration meeting.
I say allegedly because Trump denies he said what the media accused him of saying for the last 24 hours.
It has been nonstop coverage of Trump and his comments and the media has reacted in typical fashion – they bashed.
Joe Scarborough said about Trump: “Let me just say, everybody knows that granddad and grandmom and people with early onset of dementia, I know this, say things that they would have never said five or six years ago. Just ask members of my family and my mom about how they’ll say stinging things about you or other people. I’m just saying.”
Stephen Colbert said, “Trump reportedly said why are we having all these people from [bleep]hole countries come here. Sir, they’re not [bleep]hole countries, for one, Donald Trump isn’t their president. Am I right?”
Donny Deutsch said, “If you take Charlottesville and his blessing and love of or kinship with understanding there are nice Nazis out there if we take his implied support of a pedophile, and now if we take this additional, very clear racist thing, he is an evil man. We don’t talk about that a lot. We talk about he’s insane, he’s crazy. That’s evil. This is just an evil, evil man.”
One CNN news anchor cried and Anderson Cooper came darn close. Dick Durbin, the guy who clearly leaked the hit piece to the media, told the media they had the story correct.
But Tom Cotton, who was also in the room, just released a statement shut them all up. Cotton released a joint statement with Senator David Perdue that said:
“PRESIDENT TRUMP BROUGHT EVERYONE TO THE TABLE THIS WEEK AND LISTENED TO BOTH SIDES. BUT REGRETTABLY, IT SEEMS THAT NOT EVERYONE IS COMMITTED TO NEGOTIATING IN GOOD FAITH.
IN REGARDS TO SENATOR DURBIN’S ACCUSATION, WE DO NOT RECALL THE PRESIDENT SAYING THESE COMMENTS SPECIFICALLY BUT WHAT HE DID CALL OUT WAS THE IMBALANCE IN OUR CURRENT IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, WHICH DOES NOT PROTECT AMERICAN WORKERS AND OUR NATIONAL INTEREST,” THEY SAID. “WE, ALONG WITH THE PRESIDENT, ARE COMMITTED TO SOLVING AN ISSUE MANY IN CONGRESS HAVE FAILED TO DELIVER ON FOR DECADES.”
