Probably, Screen, but the Ignoble Piss Prize is on the cards, or maybe the sheets.

I have an immigration client whose 23 month old baby was taken from her. The government can't (or won't) tell us where he's being kept, or who is caring for him. What the hell does the government want with a toddler, other than to terrorize. #WhereAreTheChildren

There are few worse crimes than selling children into slavery, especially sex slavery. Along with many others lost. The ICE and Border patrol individuals responsible for this, along with those who enabled them through this monstrous policy, should be given life in prison

So to fully understand the context we would ned to know

(1) How many were released to the custody of a parent?

(2) How many were released to the custody of a relative?

(3) How many were released to the custody of a "sponsor"?

(4) What were the ages of those involved?

(5) Then give us the exact same information for the duration of the Obama administration.

This has been going on for years......the media trying to pin it mainly on Trump and the Republicans is fake news of the highest order

Erick Erickson, the founder of the conservative website RedState, who once described Mr. Trump as a “walking, talking National Enquirer,” said the president’s invented stories also speak to the public’s desire to have an easy explanation for events it cannot control.

“A lot of people really want to believe a conspiracy because it’s a lot easier to think a malevolent force is in charge than that our government is run by idiots,” Mr. Erickson said in an interview

Didn't the Nazis let parents keep their children close on the way to the gas chambers?

Richard Stengel

@stengel


While it is by no means his worst character trait, it may be the most annoying: Self-pity. Oh, poor Donnie, everyone's out to get you. In addition to the narcissism, it is also typically part of the authoritarian personality mix of autocrats. That's the danger.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?

I’ve stopped watching news as I just would rather not be angered and disgusted every evening by his personal conduct. The most despicable human being to ever hold the office. But unfortunately, it probably won’t end with him.

Anyone read about the NY Times reporter tweeting about how upsetting and disheartening  it was to have kids taunting her at Trumps Nashville rally with cries of “fake news”

She went on to report that attendance at the rally was 1,000

She later corrected the attendance to 5,500

Keep it up
