“Fox & Friends” accidentally booked Democratic Massachusetts state senator Barbara L’Italien on their show instead of former Arizona Rep.] Ann Kirkpatrick, who supports ICE and their detaining of immigrant children and families.
L’Italien used her air-time to promote her run for the U.S. Congress and to hold President Donald Trump responsible for imprisoning children:
Good morning. I’m actually here to speak directly to Donald Trump. I feel that what’s happening at the border is wrong. I’m a mother of four and I believe that separating kids from their parents is illegal and inhumane.
I’m actually Barbara L’Italien, I’m a state senator representing a large immigrant community and running for Congress in Massachusetts, I keep thinking about what we’re putting parents through and imagining how terrifying that must be for those families,
imagining how it would feel not knowing if I’d ever see my kids again. We have to stop abducting children and ripping them from their parents’ arms, stop putting kids in cages, and stop making three-year-olds defend themselves in court —
Fox News co-hosts Rob Schmitt and Jillian Mele were clueless as to who L’Italien was even after she clearly identified herself, and ended the segment because it did not match the Trump/Fox News talking points.
