After CNN rolls a clip of Dem Rep. Jackie Speier saying the airliner shoot-down is "yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken by in a provocative way by the President of the United States," Alisyn Camerota expresses support for Speier's statement, saying, I think it’s fair to say this would not have happened if there were not tensions between the US and Iran."
Wolf Blitzer and his CNN colleagues won’t acknowledge there’s an actual crisis at the southern border, but still insists it’s the United States’ responsibility to take in illegal immigrants.
