Leftist Sunny Hostin admitted on Wednesday that she does not care about the poor treatment the Obama administration gave to migrants because she only cares about what the Trump administration is doing.
In a segment on ABC's "The View" talking about the recent incident where tear gas was used on migrants who threw rocks at U.S. Border Patrol agents, conservatives Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain highlighted the media's hypocrisy in their coverage for largely ignoring worse actions from the Obama administration. NewsBusters reports:
Citing the National Review, Whoopi began by pointing out that the conservative outlet argued that when President Obama tear-gassed illegal immigrants crossing the border, no one made a fuss like they are doing now in the media. But co-host Joy Behar was reticent to believe that Obama did such a thing.
"Do they have a photo like that when Obama was in office?" Behar asked while showing a picture of a woman running from tear gas with her two kids.
"Homeland Security data does validate that, that it happened multiple times, more than once a month, in fact, during the Obama years," McCain responded.
Huntsman went even further, saying: "In that piece, it said over a period of four months in 2014 under the Obama years HHS allegedly placed a number of unaccompanied children into the hands of a ring of human traffickers, who forced them to work on egg farms in and around Ohio, leading to a federal and criminal indictment. According to the indictment, the minors victims were forced to work six and seven hours a week, 12 hours per day. These are the things we don’t talk about."
"The last I checked President Obama is no longer in office," Hostin said, as she became visibly angry. "President Trump is in office!"
"And he's destroying the country!" Behar added.
"I don't care what Obama did!" Hostin continued. "I care what Trump is doing right here right now!"
