The Morning Briefing: The Media Continues to Gin Up Border Hysteria and Much, Much More

Good Monday morning.

Here’s what is on the President’s agenda today:

  • The president meets with the secretary of State
  • President Trump and the first lady meet with Their Majesties King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein and Queen Rania Al Abdullah of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
  • The president participates in an expanded bilateral meeting with His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
  • President Trump participates in the departure of His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
  • The president participates in the McMaster for Governor Rally in West Columbia, South Carolina

Hollywierdos head to border to protest Trump and generate material for tweets and virtue signalling

I love this.

A handful of Hollywood stars, including Lena Dunham and Joshua Jackson, showed up in Tornillo, Texas on Sunday afternoon to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policy.

The protest, located near El Paso, Texas, also attracted director Rob Reiner and Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, Texas.

I wonder what these special snowflakes would do if someone broke into one of their palatial, million-dollar homes. Would they call the police and have the police take the burglars away or would they allow them to stay and hang around?

So we’re good on this? I just want to know when the official announcement will come stating that everyone can exact revenge in any manner judged as fit against those who hold “undesirable” belief systems? The same people celebrating this hateful restaurant and its owner were demanding the government force a shop owner to violate his religious beliefs and bake a wedding cake. I’m so confused, but that is because the elite thought emotion-leaders aren’t operating under any principles at all but merely acting out on their primitive impulses. Whatever they deem “unclean” is fair game. Now that we are operating under the new rules where anything goes, I sure hope their firemen, ambulance drivers and emergency room surgeons are with HER.

The owner of the Virginia restaurant that kicked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders out on Friday said that she’d do it again in an interview with the Washington Post on Saturday.

“I would have done the same thing again,” Stephanie Wilkerson, co-owner of the Red Hen, said. “We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one.”

Well, some convictions at least, not wedding cake or abortion convictions — that’s for sure!

Glenn Beck walks out of interview with CNN’s Tater

Tater*, AKA Brian Stelter, hosted Glenn Beck on his tabloid, agitprop Sunday schlock show, where he wailed and lamented that many people think the media are a bunch of lying punk-ass b!tches. You can read about it here.

Beck walked out after Tater wanted to chit-chat about the Beck company’s rumored financial problems.

“Wow, Brian. Thanks a lot. I think that’s the most ridiculous question I’ve ever heard,” Beck told Stelter. “I’m sitting here getting ready to talk to you about the detaining of children and parents, and trying to break families apart.”

“We want to stop it and you want to play those games? Have a nice day,” Beck said, before removing his mic and walking off camera.

Good for him.

*Tater is the name given to Brian Stelter by my friend, author and, most importantly, woke Twitter personality Kurt Schlichter
