Nielsen to reporters in reference to the growing crisis on the southern border-a wall, she said, “just to be clear, is not a new one.”

She continued, “It’s already happened, and extended over many decades. But currently, it is the exclusive product of the gaps in our Federal immigration laws to prevent illegal immigrants, minors, and relatives of the detained and removed to their own countries.”

Brzezinski, in an infamous feud with President Trump in 2017, followed up with more tweets: “Again another lie. It IS true,” “A familiar relationship? If a woman is breast feeding her baby, is that enough for you? A very sad day for America .. so much lost,” “a Coward she is. Wow.”

Again, another lie. It IS true.

Nielsen had to deny Twitter on Sunday, it was a White house, politics, separation of children from their parents at the border. Brzezinski struck back, calling it “a POLICY, and you have to show your cowardice. Written all over her face. Trump u sent-he makes women to mop his mess.”

You’ll excuse me, it is a POLICY, and you have to show your cowardice. Written all over her face. Trump u sent it women’s mop makes a mess

She added that Nielsen was “lie to the American people,” and that her “Standing up for a racist is a terrible thing to see,” referring to the Secretary on Instagram as “yet another trump card-the sidekick”, a “full fumbling bumbling mess” in “HORROR SHOW” and ended the press conference “full of lies.”

It combines it all, and we are clear. The Cowardice. It is offensive. The policy is offensive and you know it ..

At the briefing, Nielsen said that those who are “the loudest criticism of the enforcement of the current laws such that their policies created, to the perpetrators of the crisis and its policy.”
