  1. They were to busy planning an insurrection.

      Red rum….our pesky troll, is a Putin/Trump Troll Bot. You know……a sucker.

    • @FactsarenotdirtyFwords yes Nancy is a sucker lol

    • ​@Eric Graham Liberals understand it. It’s the extremist socialist / state sponsored media ideology that brings us real liberals down.

    • @FactsarenotdirtyFwords says the moron who doesn’t comprehend how heavily the Biden Administration is invested in fossil fuels. Sucker indeed…you’re just too stupid to realize your reality.

    Donald’s reaction reduce capacity as much as possible.
    And spike the tires on the bus as you leave… The children can walk can’t they

  3. This is also the consequences of not having a proper transition.

      @Chaninification Yeah, because the opposing party abusing the FISA court to illegally spy upon his campaign- and outing a CIA source in the process-, defaming and slandering him as being a Manchurian candidate, and getting their lapdogs in the media to bark the same tune, when their candidate lost didn’t set the stage for his petulant stance when he lost.

      @V Trump lives rent free in your head still lol!

      @John Patrick I’m 4th generation Palm Beach County, born and raised. I don’t know what it would take for people that defend him, to recognize what he actually is. But I have known for decades before he became president that he should be under a prison.

    • @Chaninification are you unable to defend your position or counter others?

    • John Freedman | March 24, 2021 at 11:47 PM | Reply

      Lol in 3 months they can’t bring military cots from one of the 30 military bases within a day’s travel?

  4. In other news: water is wet.

  5. Donnie got the best treatment when it came to transition. Biden got the exact opposite because Donnie is a big baby.

    • the facilities were large enough during the trump administration. So why are they too small now? Don’t try to blame this on Trump. thanks.

    • @MilkCow They weren’t large enough during the Trump administration; he overcrowded them.

    • John Freedman | March 24, 2021 at 11:46 PM | Reply

      @Geralt Rivia It’s up 70%, so it seems they are much more crowded now. Interviewed refugees themselves say “we came here, because of Joe Biden”. He really made his own bed. The leaked photos of the camps would call it a prison/super spreader.

    • Biden was handed a gift.. How do we keep kids with their family? Zero tolerance and boarder walls. Biden threw it out the window on day 1.

    • @John Freedman What’s up 70% Immigration? Detention facility capacity? Since it’s neither, I don’t know what youre on about. Of course recent photos will look bad; it takes time to fix a monumental screw-up like what Biden has inherited, and the pandemic just makes it slower.

  6. The people in here saying why is Biden blaming the Trump administration for everything are the same people who thought it was ok for Trump to blame the Obama administration.

    • Obama blamed Bush for everything for eight years! The only thing Creepy Joe can blame Trump for is making Creepy look bad!!!!!!! BOOYAH!!!!

    • @David Eby It took nearly 8 years for Obama to clean up Bush’s mess and Trump only makes Biden look Good, by comparison. But I’m not going to argue with someone who subscribes to OAN; you’re lost.

    • John Freedman | March 24, 2021 at 11:50 PM | Reply

      As to what? Obama was tough on the border, and deported more “immigrants” than Trump ever did. Obama also frequently said on video “don’t come here, you will be sent back”. Biden told them come on in, so they are.

    • @John Freedman Biden told immigrants the exact opposite though…And Trump detained immigrants, rather than deporting them, so that for-profit-prisons could get paid hundreds of dollars, per day, per immigrant.

    • Barack Hussein Obama was useless worthless a waste of eight years you know it I know it

  8. Use milatary cots man.

  9. Just so you know. The “dire” situation this year is not as bad as it was last year. Last year the initial spring surge was 31%. This year it is only 28%.

  10. I think everyone knws it was Trump’s intentionally delays to make him look bad

  11. 🤔❤

    The other guy is down right mean. He knew this was going to be a problem.

  13. Steven Lassiter | March 24, 2021 at 11:46 PM | Reply

    Maybe Trump thought there were 15 people and it would soon go down to Zero.

  14. Blaming it on the transition? What about now? Biden has had months and yet hasn’t visited the situation at the border….

    • TheDiamond2009 | March 25, 2021 at 4:34 AM | Reply

      Nor Kamala. In fact I saw her laughing when asked the question.

      Crisis at the border – they don’t care.

  15. This mess at the border is bidens fault

    As always, it’s TRUMP’S FAULT

  17. Trump gonna be back in office soon enough. 😘

  18. Not surprised. Do you guys just do nothing but give false information out? Stop listening to them. Actually research.

  19. This administration is like cut out cardboards a mock up compared to the Trump administration

  20. Why does Biden need more Space for Migrant Children? BECAUSE HE IS ENCURAGING THEM TO COME
