As Trump's World Turns: Gas Them, Sell It Via Fox News And Receive Accolades From the Base

Days after the US lobbed tear gas canisters into a neighboring nation, Reuters has published a video center around a now iconic image of a mother racing to remove her twin daughters from the gased area. Reuters piece linked, here.

It is impossible to imagine but a Trump Administration Border Patrol official actually said the tear gas used on the migrants was " for kids." 

BRANDON JUDD (PRESIDENT, NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL) and two minutes of utter authoritarian garbage.  

Judd joined CNN host Briana Kielar. The host was absolutely remiss in failing to challenge words such as " for kids". 

Media Matters Excerpt 
BRIANNA KEILAR (HOST): Mexico is clamping down on the migrants who rushed the U.S. border yesterday, saying that they will deport around 500 people because of the violence. Now these are images, some of them, that are hard to ignore. You see here small children running from tear gas canisters that were shot into the crowd by U.S. Border Patrol agents. And here with me now is Brandon Judd, he's the president of the National Border Patrol Council, which is the organization for 16,000 border agents. You lead that organization. Just to be clear, your organization endorsed President Trump in 2016, you support his proposal to build a border wall. When you look at these pictures, I wonder what your reaction is. 
BRANDON JUDD (PRESIDENT, NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL): My first reaction is what led up to this situation? And unfortunately what happened was a monstrous act took place. They started going towards the port of entry, then they broke off and they went east and went of the ports of entry to cross the border illegally. They pushed women and children up front and from behind the women and children, they started throwing projectiles at our agents, such as rocks, bottles, and even small concrete slabs. 
KEILAR: And were agents injured in that? 
JUDD: There were a couple agents that were hit. And once that happened, we then had to take into account the safety of everybody involved, not just the agents, but those people that are also south of the wall. It was determined to deploy tear gas to break up the crowd which is exactly what happened. We did not use any kinetic force. It was tear gas, which has been deemed to be safe even for children. We never want to see a child get hurt.

Trump's major media outlet, FOXPEN-Fox Propaganda And Entertainment Network, stood tall in support of a US President's gassing a group of human beings in another country., and against US Law.

Bum-rushing the border is a CHOICE and has consequences. Watching the USA FINALLY defend our borders was the HIGHLIGHT of my Thanksgiving weekend. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
