After Chief of Staff General John Kelly informed reporters Tuesday that the discrepancy between the quantity of registered DACA recipients and people eligible for this system was in all probability as a result of folks being too lazy or too fearful to use for this system, the media went right into a tailspin of fury over Kelly’s blunt feedback.
Of course the liberal hosts at The View threw a mood tantrum over this assertion, on the February 7 present. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg instantly launched right into a thoughts-numbingly silly tirade towards Kelly, that sounded prefer it got here straight from the DNC playbook. Sneering that the General was the “lazy one” one, Whoopi lectured Kelly over what making use of to this system entailed, since he apparently didn’t know:
I wish to level one thing out John Kelly. You is perhaps really be the one who’s just a little lazy right here as a result of 600,000 of these DREAMERS weren’t eligible for DACA as of final yr since they hadn’t met the age or schooling necessities, they have not utilized some out of concern. Many folks eligible for DACA have households under the poverty line and it prices $495 to use for DACA. Another $495 to resume each two years. Three-quarters of these over 16 and eligible for DACA work are juggling. 1 in four juggle each job and faculty research.
She went on to talk for each one of these tens of millions of unlawful immigrants, gushing that they have been “busting their butts” to remain afloat on this nation.
Always prepared with the anti-Trump quip, Joy Behar griped,“They weren’t fortunate enough to inherit $1 million from their daddy like he was!”
If the Democrat speaking factors weren’t already overblown sufficient, visitor co-host Valerie Jarrett jumped in to gush that DACA “kids” have been “just like all of us,” and “love our country.”
“They are confused and don’t understand why they haven’t been taken care of!” Jarrett complained.
As conservative co-host Meghan McCain argued that DACA was a bipartisan situation, Joy Behar jumped in to disagree, “It’s Trump!”
“No it’s not just Trump,” McCain argued, mentioning Chuck Schumer and the Democrats’ unwillingness to compromise on something, resulting in the most recent authorities shutdown. “There’s room for agreement on this,” McCain mentioned, noting that Democrats wanted to provide Republicans need they need on border safety and chain migration.
That upset the remainder of the desk who talked over one another as host Sunny Hostin angrily lectured McCain on why Republicans have been “wrong” on immigration:
The drawback with chain migration although is, Meghan, in the event you give the DACA recipients, citizenship what this administration is doing, is ensuring that their mother and father get despatched again and so that you’re breaking apart households and immigrants do not deserve that sort of therapy!
As Hostin completed up her emotional spiel on what unlawful immigrants “deserve” from our authorities, the viewers clapped in approval. Jarrett pressed McCain on “why” Republicans and President Trump couldn’t simply go DACA with no strings connected. McCain needed to clarify to the previous Obama adviser why President Trump, who ran on a platform of implementing our borders, couldn’t “alienate his base” who acquired him elected.
“So the minority is running the country!” Hostin sneered at McCain’s argument. “So the minority is running this country against the will of the people!” she repeated once more.
“I imagine there’s bipartisan settlement however the sticking level is him, it really is him!” Whoopi agreed with Behar.
To make the entire section finish in its typical hyperbolic vogue, Hostin acquired one final pot shot in at Kelly, saying that calling unlawful immigrants who didn’t apply to a program they have been eligible for “lazy” was rhetoric that “undermines the values of our country.”
“The factor is, , you may have the Chief of Staff, John Kelly, calling immigrants lazy. When are we going to cease with the nasty rhetoric that’s undermining the values of this nation?” Hostin gushed because the present minimize to business.
Last week on the present, Hostin additionally complained that the Trump administration was “demonizing immigrants” by calling out the violent unlawful immigrant gang, MS-13.
