Pathetic: Hillary Gloats After Trump Ends Family Separation at the Border

Share

Note to Hillary Clinton: Gloating about anything involving President Donald Trump probably isn’t the best idea. This is doubly true when it involves immigration issues.

Yet, that’s exactly what the 2016 election loser did when she emerged from the woods for an appearance in Dublin, Ireland, on Saturday.

In a speech that focused on Trump’s immigration policies — and which was apparently meant to raise money for “separated families” — Clinton called the policy a “dark hour,” according to The Daily Caller.

“Americans from every political background, ideology, and walk of life watched heartbroken and outraged as immigrant families were ripped apart and children were treated cruelly as political pawns,” Clinton said.

“Yet, even in this dark hour, we are witnessing an outpouring of moral conviction, civic engagement, and lasting commitment to stand up for the most vulnerable among us,” she continued.

“In fact, it was because of the outcry from every corner of our country, and indeed, from around the world, that the Trump administration was finally forced to take at least a step toward ending family separation.”

She added, however, that “the fight is far from over.”

According to the hard-hitting journalists at Marie Claire magazine, the former Democrat standard-bearer raised $1.5 million last week for separated families. I’m sure they’ll see every dime, just the same way that the families affected by the Haitian earthquakes saw every cent collected by the Clintons.

Does this prove Hillary is a hypocrite?

So, here are a few things Hillary didn’t mention while she was gloating:

a) The “step toward ending family separation” the administration took means that now children can be held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for an indefinite period, should it pass legal muster. While family facilities are no doubt being constructed, this means that the children won’t be housed in significantly better accommodations while their cases work their way through the judicial system.

b) The Obama administration — which Hillary supported and was once a part of — admits it used the exact same tactics that Trump did during the 2014 border crisis.

c) During her campaign, Hillary made no move to distance herself from these policies.

d) Speaking of separation, Hillary’s husband is responsible for the Elian Gonzalez raid in Miami back in 2000, perhaps the ultimate example in recent years of an individual child being used as a political pawn.

Well, whatever. Pay no attention to the policies behind the curtain, people! Hillary Clinton is a woman who cares about families being separated, so long as she’s not in a position to do anything about it.

I do believe one thing she said, however: The fight is far from over. After all, Clinton’s coffers aren’t going to fill themselves with money.
