“Something just doesn’t sit well with the image of a bureaucrat scoffing at a reporter’s question about whether separating young immigrant children from their parents constitutes a form of child abuse.
But Kirstjen Nielsen should know better than to attempt to reduce a crisis as visceral as this one to statistics and wonkish D.C. policy-speak — especially when it is a crisis of the administration’s own making and all part of an elaborate sham aimed at pleasing her boss, the President, who sees the children caught up in this drama not as human beings, but as mere negotiating chits in a game of brinkmanship with a Congress that doesn’t want to give him his “wall.””
See I have known Kirstjen Nielsen for nearly 30 years. She should resign nowA crime against humanity is still a crime against humanity if it is committed by one trying to please the boss. Neither the boss nor the minion get to deny the harm they do.
Trump and all his minions should resign immediately and report to prison. They don’t belong free to torment children in the modern world. Who will file the charges of child-abuse? Who will impeach POTUS? Who will speak truth to power? There should be resignations and factual statements made to the public up and down the chain of command to/from this “commander in chief”. His title would be better, “mob boss”, “saboteur”, or “traitor”. He’s making USA smaller than it has been for more than a century. The people who help Trump in the destruction of USA and all it stands for are just as guilty.
