Of all the recent stories about the separation of immigrant children and parents at the United States’ border with Mexico, the Mexican foreign minister said on Tuesday that one story was particularly heartbreaking: A 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome was taken away from her mother in South Texas.
But Corey Lewandowski, President Trump’s former campaign manager, offered a different response when he heard about the girl while appearing on Fox News on Tuesday night. “Womp womp,” he said.Mr. Lewandowski was appearing on “The Story With Martha MacCallum” opposite Zac Petkanas, a Democratic strategist. Mr. Petkanas was telling the story of the girl when Mr. Lewandowski interrupted him.
“Did you say, ‘Womp womp,’ to a 10-year-old with Down syndrome being taken from her mother?” Mr. Petkanas responded. “How dare you! How dare you!”
“What I said is you can pick anything you want to, but the bottom line is very clear: When you cross the border illegally you have given up the rights of that country,” Mr. Lewandowski said, as the two guests talked over each other. “When you cross the border illegally, when you commit a crime, you are taken away from your family because that’s how this country works.”
Jesus! Is the prerequisite for working with Donald Trump to have absolutely no compassion?
Because if that is true that would explain a lot.
By the way, Sarah Palin should be all over this. Let’s see how long it takes her to say anything.
