Pelosi Wonders Why There Aren't 'Uprisings All Over the Country' Because of Border Policy

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelois of Calif., gestures as she speaks during a news conference, Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Nancy Pelosi's weekly press briefings are becoming the stuff of legend.

That is, legendary bonkers.

Pelosi has given her opinion on the tax cut ("crumbs"), jobs growth ("means little"), and now offers her thoughts on the separation of children from their parents at the border.

“I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy that they defend,” she said. “It’s a horrible thing, and I don’t see any prospect for legislation here.”

The Republican Party responded to her “extreme rhetoric” in a YouTube video:

Republicans are actually taking it easy on Pelosi by using the descriptive "extreme" to describe her unbalanced musings. In fact, she's bat guano crazy. Is she actually hoping for conflict in the streets? Sure sounds like it.

The hysteria coming from Democrats on this issue is a smokescreen. What really bothers them is that the parents of these kids are being arrested for crossing the border illegally, as the administration points out.

“Individual children are separated from their parents only when those parents cross the border illegally and are arrested,” Health and Human Services Sec. Alex Azar said in response to criticism from Democratic Rep. Suzanne Bonamici of Oregon. “We can’t have children with parents who are in incarceration, so they are given to me… So the best advice I have is, actually present yourself at a legal border crossing and make your case.”

Azar pointed out that all children are given “medical care, full education, dental, vision. They’re provided athletics, meals.”
