Congressman Dan Crenshaw blared former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, criticizing her for “insane gaslighting” after she had targeted Republicans for the recent happenings at the southern border.
As Sister Toldjah noted at RedState, Clinton attacked Republicans on Twitter, saying, “Friday, Two-year-olds in detention. Children forced to take care of other children. Not enough food or water. Demand accountability from your Republican representatives for allowing this administration to cage children and keep them in unconscionable conditions."
Clinton followed with a tweet saying, “There are amazing groups at the border and beyond doing critical work to defend the rights of immigrant and refugee children. If you can, please chip in to support a few of them today.”
Crenshaw fired back stating, “What insane gaslighting. You know Dems have refused to support funding for resources at the border & have offered no solutions. So tell us, if you were President, how would you manage hundreds of thousands of people illegally crossing our border and dragging children with them?”
He added: “After blatantly lying, you’re also fundraising for 'rights of immigrants' using ActBlue, the Democratic Party fundraising platform, so that donor data is collected for the Democrats. Absolutely shameless.”
Maria Bartiromo of Fox News provided a statement regarding Crenshaws remarks. Bartiromo said:
"Congressman, you say we need more detention space. You’re not getting it. The Democrats basically put a limit on the number of beds that you can actually have available for people going into these detention centers. So they are putting a limit in terms of how many people — and the detentions centers are busting out."
She added: "One of the Border Patrol people told me when I was there two weeks ago, that when they decide, okay, you’re gonna stay for X number of days and then you’ll have a hearing, that hearing is in eight years. Literally. The system is so overwhelmed that the hearing is not for a year, seven, eight years. Of course, they’re not going to come back."
According to reports, Crenshaw retaliated and continued to push back.
