Timing is everything. Earlier today, Ivanka Trump posted a photo of herself and her child with the hashtag #SundayMorning.
The tweet was immediately met with responses referencing a recent report that Steven Wagner, acting assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families, revealed to a Senate subcommittee that the Office of Refugee Resettlement couldn’t account for nearly 1,500 immigrant children over the last three months. How could Ivanka proudly share a touching moment with her baby in light of news that her father’s administration essentially lost 1,500 kids pulled away from their parents? Halsey acknowledged the poor timing of her tweet, including a nice touch where she said, “Fuck your #SundayMorning."
Of course, Donald Trump has tried to blame anyone and everyone but himself and his administration since the news surfaced.
Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 26, 2018
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) called out Trump’s “fake news,” adding that “separating parents and children is your administration's choice."
No law requires this — separating parents and children is your administration’s choice.— ACLU (@ACLU) May 26, 2018
Hundreds of kids as young as 18 months are in danger of suffering lifelong trauma.
We won’t let you shift the blame or use families as bargaining chips for your wall. #EndFamilySeparation https://t.co/ixRFgPgCq6
