Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi made history Wednesday Using a powerful 8-hour speech on the floor of the House, pleading with her colleagues to stand up for Dreamers.
So Fox News, always a stalwart protector of Donald Trump’s agenda, is attacking not just Pelosi, but her 6-year-old grandson too.
During her record-breaking speech, Pelosi told the story of her grandson and his close friend Antonio, from Guatemala.
When her grandson blew out the candles on his birthday cake, he also stated he desired to have brown eyes and skin like Antonio.
“So beautiful,” Pelosi said. “The face of the future for our country is all-American. And that has many versions.”
It’s bad enough for Fox to sneer at Pelosi for sharing the stories of young immigrants who were attracted to this country as children and now, as a result of Trump, are facing deportation to countries that they don’t even know.
But to attack her young grandchild by mocking and lecturing him — even accusing the little boy of playing “identity politics” with his birthday wish — is a disgraceful and petty attack that proves just how desperate right-wing media is to fight against the desire of the majority of Americans to protect, rather than attack, these young Americans who should be able to stay in the only home they’ve ever known.
