Here Are 8 Times The Media(D) Said That President Trump “Manufactured A Crisis” At The Border

Written by Wes Walker on July 3, 2019

In their defense, they’re all a little slow on the uptake…

Since 2015, Trump has said the border is a problem that needs fixing. There was a time when the left (and their PartisanPress flunkies) agreed with that statement. They would speak of the harm that could have on the lives of their working-class supporters.

That was before their party’s paradigm shift. The one that said their party’s entire electoral future hinged on open-borders policy. (They slipped, and the memo admitting as much was made public.)

Now their policy denounces any enforcement of the border, and when Trump made it a key issue last December, the Democrats and Media rallied around Chuck and Nancy’s lead calling it a Manufactured Crisis.

We NOW know the crisis is anything but ‘manufactured’ — Even AOC agrees. (Well NOW she does, anyway.)

On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General released a report titled “DHS Needs to Address Dangerous Overcrowding and Prolonged Detention of Children and Adults in the Rio Grande Valley.” It’s a strong header for a government document, and the pictures within do even more to underscore the horrendous conditions for many of the migrants detained at Border Patrol facilities.

Federalist’s  put together a great list commemorating 8 times the Media were gas-lighting us on the immigration crisis (see the original piece for full background and commentary on each) instance:

1. We’ve got Jim ‘LookAtMe’ Acosta:

2. This professor here is ‘enraged’ by NBC’s reporting of a ‘manufactured crisis’ (while using an NBC photo many have criticized as looking staged):

You will remember this particular situation involved groups rushing the border en masse, and was resolved only when troops were massed to meet them and the border was (briefly) shut down entirely.

3. Don Lemon is beclowning himself as usual…

This time he has help: Don Lemon was afraid that people might actually BELIEVE Trump’s claim that there was a crisis on the border.

4. Joe Scarborough — (again).

Jan 8: “And at this point I’ve got to say, how stupid are Americans who still believe there’s a crisis on the southern border?”

Great work, Joe. That quote aged like milk.

5. Anderson Cooper

While pretending not to be for or against any policy, he claimed to be calling the president out on his dishonesty:

The number of people able to apply for asylum each day at a legal point of entry, that’s been slowed intentionally to a trickle. One intelligence official has had enough of what he or she says as all the misrepresentation telling CNN, quote, no one is saying this is a crisis except them,” he said.

6. The New York Times’ podcast ‘The Daily’

“It’s also grown so that now when the president describes this crisis, he doesn’t just talk about illegal immigration, he talks about anybody who is crossing the border for any reason at all,” said New York Times reporter Caitlin Dickerson. “All of it is a crisis he says and the only way to stop this crisis he describes is by building a wall.”

“At the risk of over-simplifying, none of it is true. Just to be clear, there is no significant body of research to back up any of these ideas even though we hear them repeated all the time,” she said.

7. Univision’s Jorge Ramos (who is a dual citizen) as recently as April wrote in the Times:

8. Times Editorial Board:

“He creates nonexistent threats, generates manufactured fears.”

It was discredited then: 8 Recent Reasons The “Manufactured” Border Crisis ISN’T Manufactured

And even THEY have switched positions now…

But eventually, (even at CNN) the truth comes out:

So, what happened? It’s ‘Almost’ like they’re all singing from the same script, isn’t it?

They wouldn’t being blowing smoke to manipulate an issue to their own political advantage, would they???
