Rep. Escobar: Kevin McCarthy 'Comes Into My Community To Use It As A Prop' | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC 1

 

Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (D-TX) joins Andrea Mitchell to respond to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) labeling the surge in border crossings a "Biden border crisis" during a GOP congressional delegation trip to the southern border. "It is so deeply frustrating to hear the Minority Leader's comments," Rep. Escobar says. "He comes into my community to use it as a prop. He knows full well we have been seeing this flow of humanity from Central America since 2014. It is not a new phenomenon." Aired on 03/16/2021.

      @Damien Darko247 Your boy Biden is a “Legend” Kamala gets XOXO, from me all day! And Pelosi. Well you already know, and if you don’t, your loss!

      @michael lleb Interesting reach, there. Glad you know where everyone else’s priorities are. Just so you know, some people don’t just blindly worship and defend a political party, or certain political leadership. Much more freeing to call a spade a spade. Good luck to you, on your growth journey.

  4. Where was he when his demagogue Trump lied to Americans and over half a million people are dead? Where was the concern for protecting the people all last year?

    It’s time McCarthy to give it up, he should even still be in office, all the Republicans that are still in office should be removed stop the lies!

  6. But I thought Trump built a wall, that was paid for by Mexico.

    Exactly. Instead of doing real work.

  8. GOP know there are consequences for their rhetoric and lies … they just don’t care.

      Look at the mass of illegals at the border since biden opened the border…. International humanitarian crisis. He is even using barry’s cages again. Republican lies🤣..?
      Illegal border crossings were down 80% – now this illegitimate puppet has failed to protect the country from untested, undocumented interlopers. Congratulations

    • Hey dumbfuck, funny how record number of arrests are happening at the border and you’re too stupid to realize why

  9. As Texas Republicans desperately try to distract from their blatant failure to Texans during the winter disaster, they revert to their only tactic, distract and blame others.
    How about they ask Texans how they’re going to pay the immense bills that they were faced with after surviving without leadership from Texan politicians

    Seriously. Where in the heck were you when Trump was pulling his bs. 🙈🙉🙊

    I would hate it if a politician tried to use the halls of congress or white house to promote an agenda or sell products. Imagine what would happen if for instance if trump used the white house as a backdrop to his campaign or Lindsay Graham used the halls to solicit donations to his campaign or if Ivanka did an add for Goya from the white house . It’s almost as bad as when president Obama wore a tan suit.

    There is not a right adjective appropriate in describing the republicans…smh

  13. Roxann Hanrahan | March 16, 2021 at 4:56 PM | Reply

    He is severely depraved of mind.

  14. That’s all they do, lie all the time, but guess what we are woke and we will vote with all the rage bwe have.

  15. Every opportunity the GQP gets, they’ll try to frame it and market it to their gullible followers. “Biden Border Crisis” is the term more of them are going to repeat just for that.

  16. The GOP is so salty that their cult leader couldn’t win and bully his way back into office. It’s disgusting.

    “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,”
    ~ Kevin McCarthy June, 15th 2016.
    My my how things have changed, the way he is kissing Trump’s sphincter, [ which is technically still a ring] seems like Putin is paying him also .

    Where was McCarthy’s outrage when Trump started taking minor children away from their parents and put them in cages without benefit of legal counsel?

  19. Susan Teeter | March 16, 2021 at 9:55 PM | Reply

    Wow, she informs us backed by facts. What a concept, perhaps the Republicans can pick up on it.

  20. “There’s a border crisis and a wap crisis.”
    -GOP
