As you all know, Laura Bush is the latest in the now disgraced dynasty to take a whack at President Trump. This time over his enforcement of border control laws. sarah Sanders, one of my favorite Trump appointees decided that Bush had gone too far and she gave her a royal slap across the bow.
Bush had said:
Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children in converted box stores or making plans to place them in tent cities in the desert outside of El Paso. These images are eerily reminiscent of the internment camps for U.S. citizens and noncitizens of Japanese descent during World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history. We also know that this treatment inflicts trauma; those who have been interned have been twice as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease or die prematurely than those who were not interned.
During the daily press conference Sanders was asked about Bush’s remarks.
“Frankly, this law was actually signed into effect in 2008 under her husband’s leadership, not under this administration,” Sanders said at the White House press briefing on Monday.
The law she was referring to was the Trafficking Victims Prevention Reauthorization Act signed by Bush in 2008, which Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said was in need of reform.
“This law encourages families to put children in the hands of smugglers to bring them alone on this dangerous trek northward,” Nielsen said during the White House press briefing. “And make no mistake, we’ve talked about this before — this trek is dangerous and deadly.”
laura tried to score some points in order to make her family look better and it backfired big time. George W Bush was a vanilla president who never tackled the tough jobs other than his tax cuts, But President Trump is a pistachio president with chocolate and whipped cream with a cherry on top.
