The Trump administration’s horrifying policy of kidnapping the children of undocumented immigrants and separating them from their families far outstrips even the worst, most cynical predictions previously made of what they might do. It’s evil in its most distilled form, a process that helps no one and accomplishes nothing beyond inflicting harm.
The children are being imprisoned in massive detention centers and the administration is now looking to build tent cities to house the growing number of detainees, so massive is the scope of this insidious crime.
Meanwhile, the lapdogs and sycophants surrounding the president continue to defend the policy.
Today, professional liar White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the inhumane separation of migrant families. Not surprisingly, she cowardly defended it on behalf of her boss.
She spewed some nonsense about how the problem is really Democrats fault then tried to move on to a new question. Playboy’s Brian Karem refused to let her off the hook.
Jumping to his feet, Karem passionately confronted her.
“You’re a parent don’t you have any empathy? Come on Sarah, you’re a parent. Don’t you have any empathy for what these people are going through? They have less than you do. Sarah, come on seriously, seriously,” Karem said.
Huckabee Sanders tried to silence him and cynically accused him of trying to get more television time because apparently someone as heartless as the Press Secretary can’t fathom the idea that people might actually be angry and worked up about a government-organized war on people of color and their helpless children.
Karem effortlessly batted her accusation aside and demanded she answer the questions honestly, trying in vain to appeal to her empathy. She ignored him and moved on to a new question like the craven collaborator she is.

Trump has weaponized ICE against children, and unless he is removed from office he is sure to invent even more hideous ways of victimizing the innocent.
ICE, in turn, has proven itself to be a fascist organization populated by rapists, pedophiles, and sadists. Every moment it continues to operate in the United States is a stain on this country’s conscience that will horrify future generations. It must be disbanded, and the criminals in its ranks immediately prosecuted.
MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff visited one of the child detention facilities and tweeted out a must-read thread about what he saw. Every American has a responsibility to take immediate action. Call your elected officials and demand they do something to stop these ongoing human rights violations.
I’m a part of the first group of journalists to go into the shelter for detained child migrants in Brownsville Texas since the zero tolerance separation policy was announced. 1000+ boys here.
Going in right now.
