This week MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell decided it was appropriate to use President George H.W. Bush’s funeral to criticize President Trump’s posture during funeral.
”Watching that service, the president sitting with his arms like this,” Mitchell begins to demonstrate by crossing her arms and frowning, “When everyone else was looking forward. There was one handshake with the Obamas sitting closest to him but no other interchanges we could see.”
It is pretty distasteful that leftists use funerals to attack the President any way they can. This was supposed to be a funeral of remembering and honoring the passing of George H.W. Bush. The left can never help themselves when attacking the President. It seems whenever something happens in this country.. the left can’t ever just put politics to the side and be respectful. If a conservative host was doing this, we would never hear the end of it.
The media, especially most of the hosts at MSNBC have all used George W.H. Bush’s death as an opportunity to attack President Donald Trump. Instead of accurately retelling Bush’s legacy, which had its flaws like every other person that has been in office, they put him on a pedestal to viciously attack President Trump. Let’s not forget the funeral of John McCain and how they used that stage to attack Trump. A real media would never use funerals to further their political statements. It’s quite tragic to see this happening. We sure didn’t see the media personalities criticizing Barack Obama during his time in office. In the eyes of a MSNBC Host, a republican can do nothing right.
MSNBC should focus on reporting the truth instead of bizarre segments using a funeral to constantly criticize President Trump’s body language. Who knew sitting normally at a funeral would cause such a freak out at MSNBC.
The Daily Caller report:
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell criticized President Donald Trump’s posture during the funeral for George H.W. Bush this week in Washington, D.C.
“Watching that service, the president sitting with his arms like this,” Mitchell said while crossing her arms and frowning, “When everyone else was looking forward. There was one handshake with the Obamas sitting closest to him but no other interchanges we could see.”
Four presidents were seated together Wednesday at the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush. The fifth living president, George W. Bush, sat across the aisle with his family.
When President Trump arrived, he and former President Barack Obama shook hands. Trump also shook hands with former First Lady Michelle Obama. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not attempt to shake the Trump’s hand but as Melania was entering the pew, she reached out to former President Bill Clinton, who smiled and shook her hand.
Throughout the rest of the ceremony, the Trumps simply sat quietly and followed along the program. Continue Reading

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
