CNN and MSNBC journalists on Tuesday freaked out over Donald Trump’s decision to end DACA, deriding it as “cold hearted.” An agitated Jim Acosta fussed at the way in which Barack Obama’s questionably constitutional program is being phased out: “Why did the President not come out and make this announcement himself today? Why did he leave it to his Attorney General? It's his decision. These kids, their lives are on the line because of what he's doing?”
Well, Hollywood celebrities and other elite liberals reacted about like you’d expect to the Trump administration’s decision to rescind Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. The overwhelming accusations of racism and hatred levied by Hollywood’s loudest (and most privileged) in the past two or three days have glossed over the context of the DACA policy, the decision to overturn it, and the potential consequences (which are unknown at this point).
Even before Tuesday’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) announcement from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the liberal media have been alarmist in their attacks on any proposed rollback. Of course, this follows the exact blueprint the media used in 2012 and 2014 as they did all they could do to lay the groundwork for Barack Obama’s DACA announcements by filling their stories with unbalanced talking heads and sob stories by those who could be deported.
On Tuesday, hours before the Trump administration announced a gradual end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration executive order implemented by President Obama, the network morning shows feared the “immigration battle” to come while promoting the “blue-state backlash” as left-wing activists took to the streets in protest.
Appearing as a guest on Monday's MSNBC Live, recurring MSNBC guest Karine Jean-Pierre hyperbolically claimed that ending the DACA program for young illegal immigrants would amount to "enforcing -- advancing a white supremacy agenda" as the left-wing analyst from MoveOn.org commented on predictions that President Donald Trump will likely end the program.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump was supposed to finally make an announcement regarding his long awaited decision on the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). It’s a touchy issue for most because it deals with the children of illegal immigrants, the job market, the economy, and questionable legality. But in an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, Princeton University Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. claimed the real reason DACA had its opponents was that of race.
The Sunday after President Trump met with and aided the victims of storm-ravaged Texas, ABC’s Martha Raddatz exploited the natural disaster to lobby for him to keep the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). “The experience of Harvey has been a profound moment in a tumultuous year,” she righteously opined during This Week. “Showing the best of America, but also threatening to expose the cost of the rancor and division that has infected our political life.”
