David Spade Offers a Refreshing A-List Attitude & New Late-Night Option for Those Tired of the Political Pounding

In an interview published by Variety Tuesday, actor/comedian David Spade revealed just how utterly woke he is. And by “woke,” I mean awake — to the world around him.

David clearly isn’t wholly blinded by a Hollywood bubble. He knows what most civilians well realize: that America is comprised of people with all sorts of viewpoints. That both the Left and the Right are in any given audience.

Judging from comments made by many in Tinseltown, there are more than a few who fail to notice this.

Discussing his upcoming late-night talk show — which will consist of a monologue, a panel of guests, and on-location pieces — the SNL alum explained it will focus on pop culture rather than the politics which seem to rule much of contemporary night-time talkies.

To quote Revelation, “Here is wisdom:”

“I don’t want half the crowd tuning me out.”

Nicely done!

He went on to say he’s “just not that smart,” and that “there are other guys doing it better.”

“I still like to make fun of everyone and what they are doing,” Spade explained, “but it’s more good-natured.”

I like it.

And he’s right: Nothing’s wrong with a bit of ribbing of our elected leaders; but when a show turns into a national political party’s convention — as many appear to with regularity — for a portion of the butts in the seats, the train’s substantially derailed.

Joe Dirt continued:

“When people do things, I think it’s fair game to make a few jokes, and then you move on — not too personal, of course.”

He made things similarly clear to The Daily Mail recently:

“The country is going to work or not work without me involved. So I will stay away and let all the other celebrities handle fixing that. At this point, it would be just piling on.”

David wants to offer “a non-political fun show.”

Sounds fantastic.

Lights Out with David Spade debuts on Comedy Central July 29th after The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Check it out if you want something different than the regular ranting rigmarole.

Walking Paradox Michael Moore Has a Message for Democrats in Light of Mueller: ‘Shut the ?#@! Up’

Here’s a story about every conservative American’s favorite guy, Michael Moore.

The documentary filmmaker’s an interesting character, to be sure — the vocal radical doesn’t seem to understand the definition of the words coming out of his mouth. And yet he says them with such conviction.

He’s a devoted capitalist who charges people to listen to him protest capitalism. That endeavor has made him a guy worth $50 million who charges people to listen to him rage against the wealthy (please see here).

In other words, the things to which he appears to dedicate his life are in complete contradiction to the way he lives his life. What’s that called? Whatever it is, he’s about to burst from it.

He’s a walking mathematical equation, wherein values on opposing sides of the equal sign cancel one another out.

What’s left?

Well, for one, it’s his message to a whole bunch of Democrats in light of Wednesday’s Mueller hearings — “Shut the !#@? up.”

And away he goes:

“A frail old man, unable to remember things, stumbling, refusing to answer basic questions. I said it in 2017 and Mueller confirmed it today — All you pundits and moderates and lame Dems who told the public to put their faith in the esteemed Robert Mueller — just STFU from now on.”

Did you watch the hearings? Here’s how Fox’s Chris Wallace described them:

“He has been attacked a number of times, and you would think that almost anybody else would have defended his own integrity and the integrity of the investigation. And over and over, Mueller just sits silent and allows the attacks from the Republicans to sweep over him and says nothing. I think it does raise questions about the degree to which he actually was in charge and in control of this report because he doesn’t seem very much in control or in charge of what the final report was.”

And from The Daily Wire:

Mueller’s performance before the House Judiciary Committee sucked all the life right out of the Democrats’ ongoing push to impeach President Trump prior to the 2020 election, a testimony in which Mueller often looked confused and ignorant of the situation.

Michael saw it as a definite Trump victory:

Interesting prediction, but I don’t know if I’d trust Michael Moore’s futuristic insight. Lest we forget, here’s a sampling of his eagle eyes:

Michael Moore: Donald Trump May Be The Last President Of The United States

There’s a word for that, too; but it escapes me.

Don’t Be Gaslit, Today’s Hearings Were a Total Disaster for Robert Mueller and the Democrats

Westlake Legal Group mueller-house-hearing-2-620x317 Don’t Be Gaslit, Today’s Hearings Were a Total Disaster for Robert Mueller and the Democrats Robert Mueller republicans Politics partisan Mueller report media bias Jerry Nadler hearings Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump disgraceful disaster democrats bias adam schiff 2020 election

Former special counsel Robert Mueller, is sworn in before he testifies before the House Judiciary Committee hearing on his report on Russian election interference, on Capitol Hill, in Washington, Wednesday, July 24, 2019. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

A few days ago, I opined that today’s hearings with Robert Mueller before Congress would be a total dud. I said that nothing worthwhile would come from them. I also, even though I didn’t write it at the time, felt that Mueller would likely come in and be sharp, able to deflect questioning with some semblance of skill while sticking to his report.

I was wrong. Today was not a dud. It was an abject disaster for Robert Mueller and the Democrats

We actually learned a lot. For instance, that Mueller was simply a figurehead who had very questionable knowledge of his own report. He didn’t know who Fusion GPS was. He claimed the Steele dossier, which was directly related to Russian election interference, was “outside” his purview. We also learned that Mueller is not the sharp edged, ruthless prosecutor he’s been built up as. In fact, he presented himself as a man not in control of all his faculties. He stammered, constantly complained he couldn’t hear, repeated himself, got confused multiple times, and contradicted his own past statements.

In essence, Robert Mueller made the case today, inadvertently, that Republicans have been making for years.

It wasn’t just Republicans pointing out how bad this was for Democrats and Mueller though. Here’s Laurence Tribe, a crazed Trump opponent who’s never met a conspiracy theory he wasn’t willing to fluff. Today’s outcome was even too much for him to spin.

Tribe is right in a sense. This was a disaster and it did certainly set back the efforts to get Donald Trump, but that’s precisely because the rule of law was recognized. Republican members of the committees, in what was a pretty shocking display of competence, actually did an incredible job at exposing Mueller and his investigation for what it was. Some examples were shared on RedState earlier today, such as Matt Gaetz grilling Mueller on the Steele dossier and Jim Jordan evicerating Mueller on not charging Joseph Mifsud for lying to the FBI.

Things were so bad for Mueller and the Democrats that even MSNBC had to admit it.

They’d eventually get Rachel Maddow on the phone to sooth their souls with more conspiratorial nonsense, but for a moment, even the most anti-Trump forces in the media saw the writing on the wall.

This is over.

The American people do not care about this issue and every minute the Democrats spend continuing to push it is only going to hurt their case in 2020. Adam Schiff can continue to lie to to voters but no one is even paying attention to him anymore. It has reached the point where all of the machinations appear pathetic and contrived.

Two things died today. One, Democrat hopes of getting the ball rolling on impeachment are over. Perhaps more surprisingly though is the death of the myth of Robert Mueller. He was supposed to be the finest, smartest, fairest among us. SNL sang Christmas songs to him and liberal sites sold prayer candles bearing his image. Establishment Republicans assured us of his honor and ability. In the end, Mueller himself was revealed to be a sham. He wasn’t even in control of his own investigation, nor did he show any capacity to lead it.

The former special prosecutor refused to answer questions 198 times today, mostly about things he inexplicably refused to investigate, including the origins of the investigation, as well as possible conspiracy between the Democrats and foreign actors (i.e. Hillary Clinton and Christopher Steele). This wasn’t a sharp, forceful investigator on display. This was a man out of his depth, cowering and unable to answer the most basic inquiries.

Worse, Mueller’s actions were contrary to everything we’ve been assured about our justice system.

I’ve seen some Republicans of a certain stripe opine that today wasn’t necessary. That there was no reason to go hard on Mueller. I completely disagree. Today was absolutely necessary. After three years of this nonsense, there needed to be a reckoning. Every inconsistency, double standard, and partisan bias needed to be laid bare. The ridiculous canard of impeachment needed to not just be countered, but destroyed.

Towards the end of the hearings, I was actually starting to feel sorry for Robert Mueller. This was a man who never should of been given the position he was in. Regardless, there was a certain cosmic justice to this entire thing blowing up the face of the Democrats. They’ve led a witch hunt (and continue to lead one) for years that has culminated in vast nothingness. That deserved to be exposed and exposed it was.

Perhaps this will serve as a lesson to prevent future overreach? We know it won’t though. News rooms across America are busy, desperately trying to spin the dumpster fire that happened today into some kind of liberal victory, but don’t be gaslit. This was a total disaster for Robert Mueller and the Democrats.

In an Effort to Force Congress to Save the Earth, Radicals Superglue Themselves to Walls in Washington. Yeah — That’ll Do It

Sometimes, “activism” is just a way for people to say to the world, “We’re a bunch of nuts.”

Apropos:

NUT: Left-Winger Fights Brexit By Stripping Naked On Live TV & Challenging Politician To Nude Debate

How To Save The Planet: During Brexit Debate, Climate Activists Glue Themselves To Parliament. Naked.

In my opinion, participants in showcases such as the above only hurt their cause — folks aren’t positively impressed with wild acts of craziness.

But a group that visited the U.S. Capitol Tuesday clearly disagrees.

Radical organization Extinction Rebellion wanted to protest Congress’s neglect to formally declare a planetary emergency over climate issues.

They believe the U.S. is in great need of a “national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization of the resources and labor,” as stated by recently failed legislation. It would seem the world’s being oppressed by goons who don’t realize we’re about to all cease to exist.

Therefore, in order to raise awareness and fight the power (company), dissidents used Gorilla Glue to adhere their hands to the walls inside tunnels connecting House office buildings to the Capitol.

Yeah. That’ll get everybody joinin’ ya.

Point well made.

The resolution at the center of GlueFest ’19 was sponsored by your rich Uncle Bernie as well as that legendary fighter of farts, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (here and here). It was introduced in July but tanked in both chambers.

Extinction Rebellion demands otherwise.

Spokeswoman Kaela Bamberger explained to The Washington Post:

“What we wanted to do was disrupt business as usual in the lives of the congresspeople as they headed to the Capitol for votes at 6:30. We were prepared with [an acetone solution to dissolve the glue] if the police had started forcing them off.”

So they hoped for a tiny group to wrestle Congress into doing their bidding? Isn’t that at odds with the general idea of American government?

A video reveals that the gang hoped for national law to be thrust upon hundreds of millions of people due to a blocked doorway:

“We’re blocking this doorway because Congress isn’t taking the climate crisis seriously.”

Their human chain didn’t turn out to be very effective.

As per The Daily Wire:

Although the protestors instructed passersby to go outside and around the building if they wanted to get to the other side of the human chain, many individuals ducked under their glued limbs in order to get through the doorway.

One protestor announced:

“If you respect the climate emergency, you will go around.”

Republican Texas Rep. Lance Gooden spoke to TDW about the world-changers:

“It was silly, it was borderline comical. … [I went] between a gentleman’s hand and foot and said ‘Excuse me’ both times… In the future, I would have just let them remain self-glued to the walls when everyone goes home for the night. See who has the stamina to stick with it.”

Maybe they could’ve saved Earth if they’d gone the naked route. The men could’ve glued something other than their hands to the insides of the tunnels.

That would’ve proved their commitment — when it comes to rescuing humanity, their heroism is balls-to-the-wall.

And actually, I think I just solved Jessica Yaniv’s problem — DIY (Dongally Injure Yourself).

Poor Beto O’Rourke.

He launched his campaign 4 months ago in a blaze of glory, but outside of having a decent fundraising haul in the first few weeks, his polling numbers have languished in the basement.

He’s had a series of missteps, went on an apology tour of sorts to apologize for being white, and attendance at his campaign rallies has been nothing like the glory days of when he ran against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in 2018.

Last night, he appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and he was asked about some really important issues like his love of music and how he once had a trampoline on his roof when he lived in Brooklyn.

He was also asked about Cruz.

When the subject turned to the upcoming Democratic debates, Meyers brought up how hard it must be for O’Rourke to differentiate himself from the 20+ candidates who are currently running. He asked the former El Paso Congressman if he missed how easy it was to distinguish himself from Cruz. Here’s what O’Rourke said:

“Very rarely uttered and yet here we are,” Meyers joked in response.

Watch that segment from the interview below:

Sen. Cruz caught wind of Beto’s quip, and one-upped him in a big way:

Translation: You didn’t just run against me, buddy. You lost. You know where to find me.

The End Of A Dream…Not Even Chris Wallace Thought The Democrats Had A Good Day

Westlake Legal Group ap-robert-mueller-migraine-620x432 The End Of A Dream…Not Even Chris Wallace Thought The Democrats Had A Good Day Special Counsel Robert Mueller President Trump Mueller Investigation House Democrats Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption donald trump democrats corruption Congress Allow Media Exception 2020

What a way for it all to end. Throughout Mueller’s testimony, one could almost hear the sound of the air escaping from the Democrats’ impeachment balloon. By the afternoon, committee members had gotten the memo. Other than some variation of “I support what’s in the report, I’m not going to get into that, that is accurate, true, yes, or no,” Robert Mueller would not be answering their questions today.

The former Special Counsel, who will turn 75 in two weeks, appeared in both looks and demeanor to be closer to age 90. He asked for most questions to be repeated. Questions about Christopher Steele and the FBI’s role in spying on the Trump campaign were off limits. At a certain point, it became difficult to watch and I almost began to feel sorry for this man whom I’ve despised for two years.

In terms of kick-starting national enthusiasm for impeaching the President, it was a flop. After today’s hearings, it will be challenging, to say the least, to make the case for impeachment. Prior to Mueller’s testimony, the majority of Americans were opposed to the measure. That number will, if anything, increase.

Not even Chris Wallace thought the Democrats had a good day! He said, “This has been a disaster for the Democrats and I think it’s been a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller.”

There was, however, one point upon which Mueller made himself very clear. He wanted Americans to know that, but for the DOJ OLC guidelines, his team would have recommended charges against Trump. I will be posting on this topic separately.

Today was the day Robert Mueller was going to make it rain for the House Democrats. Many Republicans, including Rush Limbaugh and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), were fearful of what he might say. Both had expressed concern over the last week that Mueller had been rehearsing with Democratic committee members and would reveal some devastating new information with which they hoped to breath new life into their impeachment dreams. But Mueller failed to deliver. In a big way.

Rush put up a clip of a rather unhappy Chuck Todd, whom he refers to as F. Chuck Todd. Todd is speaking to NBC co-anchor Andrea Mitchell. Todd says:

The fact is we are living in this twenty-first century new type of asymmetrical media warfare that we’re in. You have a propaganda machine on the right — that’s what it is, is a full-fledged propaganda machine on the right — that the Democrats haven’t figured out how to combat very well yet.

Andrea Mitchell responds, “And they were warned —.”

Todd replies, “And I think they took the Trump bait, meaning they said, “Oh, yeah? You’re good at TV spectacles? We’re gonna make a TV spectacle!”

Rush translates this for us:

F. Chuck Todd thinks this has been a disaster today. He thinks it’s been an absolute disaster…They’re worried. They really are. This has been a debacle! Mueller was supposed to be fit, full of vigor. He was supposed to be cogent and coherent! He was supposed to be say, “I can’t get the guy, but you have to!” That’s what they were hoping! They’ve been trying to make something real that isn’t!

Apart from Mueller’s obvious fatigue, his unfamiliarity with much of the material in the report was remarkable. A Fox News panel this morning was calling it a “staff driven investigation.” Many of us guessed it had been run by Andrew Weissmann. Today confirmed it.

Rush sums it up:

The Democrat Party — led by Jerry Nadler and this committee — has been attempting to maneuver Mueller into saying, essentially, “I was hamstrung by Department of Justice guidelines. I couldn’t get the guy. You have to do it.” That’s what they wanted him to say. They wanted him to greenlight impeachment because the polling data on it is so opposed to it, and he won’t do it. I don’t think Mueller knows where he is today. Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But it is obvious Robert Mueller has never been more than a figurehead in this investigation.

Jim Jordan Fillets Mueller on Joseph Mifsud Not Being Charged, Exposes Serious Credibility Issues With the Probe

Today’s hearings have been an absolute disaster for Robert Mueller’s reputation and the Democrat narrative push toward impeachment. Seriously, look up the word disaster in the dictionary, and you’ll see a snapshot from today of Mueller sitting barely lucid before Congress. He couldn’t remember basic details, stammered constantly, and he obviously has no idea what is even in the actual report, that being the report he supposedly wrote.

There are going to be a lot of viral moments from the proceedings, almost all of them dealing with Mueller looking clueless or making nonsensical statements.

One of the major issues brought up today dealt with Joseph Mifsud. If you don’t know who that is, he’s the “informant” that claimed to have Hillary’s emails and appears to have purposely sought out George Papadopoulos to plant that seed. Mifsud also lied to the FBI three times during the course of the investigation.

Given that Mueller had no qualms with charging multiple people with lying to investigators, the natural question is why Mifsud was let off the hook. Rep. Jim Jordan asks that question and absolutely fillets Mueller’s nonsensical and obfuscating response.

Mueller hides behind privilege, claiming he can’t discuss charging decisions, which is absolutely ridiculous. The entire Mueller report is a discussion of charging decisions. Why is Mifsud special? Why was Michael Flynn’s life destroyed over a white lie dealing with something completely mundane, but Joseph Mifsud can lie to the FBI three times and not even be brought in for further questioning?

The answer is simple. Joseph Mifsud wasn’t connected to Donald Trump.

When you go through the Mueller report and who was charged, one thing is clear. Robert Mueller and his team purposely chose to ignore criminality by various actors and only focused on people in Trump’s orbit. That means they give a sweetheart deal to a Ukrainian Oligarch instead of charging him. That means they let a pedophile leave the country and remain uncharged for years because they thought he had dirt on Trump. It means they don’t even interview Christopher Steele after it was known he lied to the FBI. Fusion GPS’s founder, Glenn Simpson, escaped scrutiny as well. This despite him being at the very center of the Trump Tower meeting. In fact, Mueller claimed to not even know what Fusion GPS was.

Despite all of this, we still have some “Republicans” making excuses for this nonsense because they’ve put so much of their own credibility into backing Mueller.

Joseph Mifsud was not a “fruitful foreign intelligence source.” He was a liar who’s actions started an investigation into what turned out to be disgusting smear. It takes an otherworldly level of obtuseness to hand wave away Mifsud’s actions in such a way, but Rothman manages to reach that level. It’s also ironic to see so many “rule of law” conservatives suddenly decide that if you are a “foreign intelligence source” that said laws don’t apply anymore and we should just trust the bureaucracies to make those decisions.

This investigation was a partisan farce and it’s been exposed as such today. Mueller was simply a figurehead. He didn’t write his own report and that’s painfully obvious. He let a group of partisan Democrat boosters like Andrew Weissmann run wild and simply rubber stamped their work. Meanwhile, blatant criminality by people like Steele, Mifsud, and Podesta was completely ignored and covered up with ridiculous claims that they were outside of Mueller’s purview.

Now, we are left to hope the Barr-Durham investigation sheds some light on the misconduct that took place during this entire ordeal. I sincerely hope Barr realizes how important his work is and how reaching conclusions in a timely manner, before the next election, is paramount to rebuilding some kind of public trust after this dumpster fire we witnessed today.

In my opinion, Cory Booker is sort of the Michael Avenatti of our current congressional landscape. He seems intent upon posturing in really goofy ways and wholly unaware of how he comes across.

But maybe I’m wrong.

On Tuesday, Farticus (here) revealed a private urge: the compulsion to commit violence against one Donald J. Trump.

He admitted the dark urge to Seth Meyers on his eponymous nightly NBC gig.

Cory wanted everyone to know he’s a man.

“Donald Trump is a guy who — you understand, he hurts you. My testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly, out-of-shape man that he is if I did that. This physically weak specimen.”

What would’ve happened if a congressman had gone on national television and said that about President Obama?

How might it have impacted a politician trying to attain Oval Office glory?

I’m thinking their plight would’ve been less than optimal afterward.

But the media, so far as I can tell, believe where Trump is concerned — as the song in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom says — “anything goes.”

Cory continued:

“But you see what I’m talking there? That’s his tactics, and you don’t beat a bully like him, fighting him, on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf. He’s the body shamer. He’s the guy that tries to drag people into the gutter.”

He’s mixing the high stakes of America’s future with something as asinine as criticizing a person’s fitness level? And didn’t Cory himself just call Trump “out of shape”?

The senator went on to share a story — he was in Iowa campaigning when a former Stanford tight end put his arm around him. The athlete asked Cory to punch the President in the face.

The New Jersey politician used it as a teachable moment for all of us.

Here we go…

Cue the inspirational music. Cast the best Lincolnish light on Cory…

“This is a moral moment in America. And to me, what we need for our next leader — especially after the time for moral vandalism that we’re in right now — is we need a leader that’s not going to call us to the worst of who we are, but call us to the best of who we are. In this moral moment, we need to not to talk about necessarily what we’re against, but what we’re for, and the best way of looking at this is just our history.”

Isn’t he neck-deep in talking about what we’re against?

The goob is all over the place.

Back to his 2020 presidential moment: A montage would be good about now. Maybe some military shots. Footage of protests…families…some people saying the Pledge…

“The gardens of our democracy have never been free of the weeds of bigotry, hatred, demagoguery. Every generation has had them.”

Someone should tell Cory that bigotry means “intolerance for an opposing view.”

Booker compared Trump to integration-opposing Alabama Gov. George Wallace.

Something Cory may not know: George was a Democrat.

Do it, Senator:

“How did we beat [racists] before? We beat Bull Connor, for example, in Birmingham, not by bringing bigger dogs and bigger fire hoses and matching his demagoguery with more, but these were incredible artists of activism that called to the moral imagination of a country. That called us to a revival of that civic grace, that pulled black folks and white folks and more folks together. That relegated that demagogue to the ash heap of history.”

“That demagogue,” it should be observed, was also a Democrat.

But I’ll give Cory points for two things:

  • The ol’ use of “us” versus them. To all those aspiring to electoral greatness: Use “us” as if you were part of the good guys in some far-removed event, and contrast that against the baddies. Example: Even though you’re on Earth and living in 2019, if you run for office, say things like “We beat Darth Vader by using the Force.” Suddenly, voters think of you as Luke Skywalker, even though you had nothing to do with it.
  • Cory’s notion of bringing the races together. That’s genuinely a good idea, and something Democrats don’t seem to much mention.

So how do we triumph over the Dark Side? Like this:

“We will not beat Donald Trump by trying to be more like him, but by showing that we are not like him. We are not weak morally, we are not weak mentally, we’re a strong nation, and we’re a nation that unites.”

Fight on, Farticus Skywalker. Use the Farce.

Mueller’s Testimony Drives a Stake Through the Heart of the Impeachment Boogeyman

Robert Mueller’s testimony is over and the verdict seems to be that so is any serious talk of impeachment.

I don’t know what Mueller expected…or even if he’s capable of expecting anything…but he faced a fired up and prepared Republican caucus that flayed him alive. He was obviously unfamiliar with his own report, he was evasive, he was non-responsive, he was detached…not in the aloof kind of way but in the senile kind of way. He claimed to not know about things that were not only covered in the report but which had been center of public discussion for months, such as the role of Fusion GPS and the nature of the contact between Joseph Mifsud and George Papadopoulos.

This is the consensus from the people who saw Mueller’s testimony as the way of jump-starting an investigation that had died.

There are still true believers out there who were quoting Ted Lieu

but Lieu is an idiot and everyone knows that.

Democrats who are concerned about 2020, that that would be the nearly all the Democrats who created Nancy Pelosi’s majority in 2018, aren’t going to want to vote to start impeachment proceedings based on the mutterings of a man who seems one step away from sitting in a corner and drooling.

Ironically, the upside to this farcical performance is also its downside. On some level it was always hard to shake the notion that President Trump was trying to goad the Democrats into beginning impeachment and having that in the background as the nation was making its choice for president and for who would represent them in Congress.

Video: Dan Crenshaw “Sets the Record Straight” on AOC’s Claim About Migrants Drinking From Toilets

Earlier this month, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) visited a border detention center in Texas along with a Congressional delegation of other Democrats. She made some alarming claims after her visit, including alleging that migrant women told her they were forced to drink water out of toilets.

Here’s what she said at the time:

There have been other disturbing things alleged about the conditions at these centers, but while most Republicans and Democrats agree (for now, anyway) that the conditions represent a crisis, reports that migrants had to drink from toilets seemed to be far-fetched. Nevertheless, the mainstream media latched on to them as evidence that President Trump was deliberately mistreating those being detained.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) posted a video on Instagram Tuesday in which he indicated he wanted to “set the record straight” on AOC’s claims about migrants and the toilet water. Here’s what he said (transcribed):

“You all remember the controversy of immigrants having to drink out of toilets. Now, I don’t think that most people believed that but let’s actually clarify it.

I spoke to the agents today here in El Paso who were there when AOC was making that accusation. Here’s what happened.

When she was asking immigrants where they got their water from, they said ‘el baño.’ Okay. In Spanish, ‘el baño’ could mean toilet, it could mean bathroom. Here’s what they were actually pointing at.

They were pointing at this. You see a sink and you see a toilet. This is potable water. This is where migrants actually get their water from a lot of times. Either this, or a water cooler right outside.

In subsequent conversations, they made that very clear. They said no, no, no we’re not actually drinking out of a toilet, but that lie …”

The video cut off at that point. Watch Crenshaw’s demonstration below:

The first term Congressman has not been shy in the past about taking on AOC’s assertions about the illegal immigration issue on the whole and conditions at the border specifically. In fact, he has emerged as a leading Republican voice in the House when it comes to the border crisis and how the true Democratic party position is for open borders with no enforcement.
