Recurring MSNBC Guest Sees Ending DACA as ‘White Supremacy Agenda’ (NewsBusters)
Appearing as a guest on Monday's MSNBC Live, recurring MSNBC guest Karine Jean-Pierre hyperbolically claimed that ending the DACA program for young illegal immigrants would amount to "enforcing -- advancing a white supremacy agenda" as the left-wing analyst from MoveOn.org commented on predictions that President Donald Trump will likely end the program.
At about 9:11 a.m. ET, as Jean-Pierre joined a discussion of the latest on North Korea, Hurricane Harvey, and matters to be taken up on Capitol Hill, substitute host Chris Jansing wondered how so many issues going on at once would affect the North Korea issue. Jean-Pierre began her response:
They have a tough time of it, Republicans on the Hill, because before the natural disaster of Harvey came along, they had a difficult September coming their way. And I just don't see how they're going to be able to do tax reform -- there's still this question of even playing politics with Hurricane Harvey and taking a billion dollars from the natural disaster relief for the wall.
So there is a lot there on the table. And, honestly, I mean, look, Chris, we are at an inflection point. We have -- we are closer to war than we've ever been with North Korea.
