Dana Perino Mocks Biden's Silent Retreat Away From Bogus Border Patrol Story
It's humiliating enough that the media jumped all over the 'border patrol agents whipping illegals' story without all the facts, but when the White House joined in it became a disgrace. Last year a photographer shot images of border patrol agents blocking Haitian illegals trying to dash across the border. The agents were on horseback holding whips, you know... for horses. The image was used by the media to claim that agents were whipping illegals but the truth soon came out when the photographer quicking rushed in to explain that no illegals were whipped during the taking of his photo.
\well after the real nature of the photo was exposed Biden's White House declared that the border patrol agents were monsters and that Biden would make them 'pay'. Again, by that point we all knew that the media misled viewers but Biden didn't care—It was a talking point and nothing else.
Well, they've silently withdrawn from their efforts to 'punish' the innocent agents. The administration isn't offering so much as an apology for demonizing the agents and just expects this whole mess to get swept under the rug. That's why I commend Dana Perino for barking as loud as she possibly can and refusing to let the Biden mob have a free pass on this one:
"I find this in the long list of embarrassing things for the administration. This for me goes to the top because it incorporates all of the things that are wrong. They’ve never been outside of the eastern seaboard, so they don’t know what it’s like to actually ride a horse and utilize a horse. They’ve convicted these guys before they had even investigated. Then when they found out — that oh it was horse riding, oh they didn’t do anything wrong? They still didn't pull it back.
They don’t deserve anything but an apology. All of these agents that were on horseback that day, they’ve been on desk duty since last September. We are down 2,000 agents at the border. Do you think that’s a good idea? To tell everybody to cool their heels? Now to add insult to injury, to add administrative violations? What could they possibly be? And the president could use his discretion here. Mr. Empathy. He could call the Department of Homeland Security and say let it go. Let these guys get back to work. But instead, they have to come up with some trumped-up charges like some third-world dictator. That makes me furious."
This administration is allergic to accountability. Thus far, every single crisis we have faced under Biden has been someone else's fault. Every shortage is because of Russia, Trump, or private businesses... Not insane spending problems and inflation.
Biden's failed withdrawal in Afghanistan—Trump's fault. Biden's border crisis—Trump's fault. We could play this game all day but I think you get the point. Now, they've used the reputation of good agents to pander to the left's obsessive narratives and don't have enough respect for the brave agents to show an ounce of humility and apologize.
