I almost forgot Debbie Wasserman Schultz existed, and yet HERE SHE IS – grandstanding about how everything she doesn’t agree with is BIGOTED and LIESSSS.
It backfires. Big time.
Deb attacked Former ICE director Tom Homan’s testimony as raaaaacist.
“I think it’s important to really make sure that the jingoistic, bigoted testimony of Mr. Homan is called out as nearly completely untrue, as being an outrage, and as a former official directing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, he should know better,” she said.
He put her in her place.
“If I can respond to the earlier remark from Wasserman Schultz, I’ve forgotten more about this issue than you’ll ever know,” he said. “So if you say my testimony is inaccurate, it’s wrong. Everything I said here is accurate. Bottom line. If you want to go toe to toe, I’m here. I’m here on my own time to speak to the American people about what’s false and what’s fact.”
“I’m happy to go toe to toe with you Mr. Homan,” Wasserman Schultz responded. “I’m happy to do that any day.”
“Then you gotta let me respond to your question rather than dropping a bomb and running away,” Homan fired back, to which Wasserman Schultz said, “It was my time.”
God, she’s insufferable.
According to Fox News:
Homan’s defense of the Trump administration was that while Democrats are claiming the medical deferred action program is going away, the only change is that decisions on who gets deferred action are now being made by ICE instead of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which is not a law enforcement agency.
“It is not lawful to have a deferred action program at any federal agency,” he said during his opening remarks. He clarified that deferred action is a form of prosecutorial discretion that had to be made on a “case by case basis” and “even then only by the relevant prosecution agency … that has the statutory authority over those laws.” He said it was untrue that the administration was getting rid of medical deferred action entirely.
“It doesn’t help to have a mixed message that all of a sudden deferred action is going away,” he said later on. “ICE doesn’t put their heart on a shelf when they wear the badge and gun and all of a sudden don’t care about humanity. It’s ridiculous. It’s a ridiculous false narrative, and I’m going to be here ’till the day I die defending the men and women of the Border Patrol and ICE who put it on the line defending this country.”
She looks like such a pathetic little weasel here.
