The liberal news media was apoplectic this week after US Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended detaining the children of illegal immigrants at the border, that just happens to be the law, and we are a nation of laws. Sessions went beyond the law in his defense. He resorted to the Bible.

Pay close attention as Acosta bleeds all over the floor and Sanders takes him to the cleaners.

Families don’t exist here. You won’t have a family any more.”

Hypocrisy big time.
