Rick Santorum has lost what little bit of a mind he had, and his entire segment was filled with lies and errors that CNN’s Alisyn Camerota was constantly forced to correct. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this. Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/07/cnns...

During a recent appearance with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, not only did Rick Santorum get every fact about the administration's policies wrong, but he also managed to somehow blame the migrant parents coming into this country for the fact that their children are languishing in Donald Trump's baby jails. Take a look.Okay. Great. The last numbers that we had were that it was 2,000 plus, okay? And guess what? They're not even telling us the actual numbers because it seems like they don't know. Do you know of a process whereby these parents will ever see their children again?You know, the answer to that question is that, yes, some parents will and some parents won't, because some parents have already been deported-Right. I mean, just get your head around that.... as we know. That's been reported. And those-Just get your head around that. These parents don't know where their kids are. Can you imagine not knowing where your kids are?Well, I understand that, but let's just ... The parents are not blameless in this situation. The parents came across the border illegally and knowing full well that they were putting their children and themselves in jeopardy by doing so. By the way, most of the-Not really, Rick. Some of them were asylum seekers. Some of them were asylum seekers.Yeah.That's legal.Asylum seekers are not separated.Yes, they are.That's been very clear.Yes, they are.No, they're not.Yes, they are.If you come to the border and make an appeal for asylum, you are not separated-Yep.... from your children.Rick, no. I wish that that were true. They have been separated. We've heard John Kelly say that. We've heard Stephen Miller say that. It was a zero tolerance policy. Everybody would be separated from their children. That's zero tolerance. It was supposed to be a deterrent, and it has blown up into this, you know, human crisis.Look. There's no doubt that it's blown up to human crisis and the media has reported on that in many ways, but what the media doesn't report on is the human crisis of these children coming to the border themselves. I mean, the fact is that most of these folks are coming from Central America, not from Mexico, and they've made a 2,000 mile journey through Mexico. They had to cross the Mexican border-Yes.... which is no picnic.Yes.The idea that putting these children in detention is the worst thing that's happened to them since they've made this long trek, I'm not sure that is necessarily the case. These kids have been traumatized a lot-Yes. That's how desperate-... over the past several months in getting here.We agree.You know, it's really hard to figure out where to start with Rick Santorum here because, again, he got every single thing wrong. He came out here trying to be a spokesman for the administration, I guess, and then flat out lied about everything that's happening in this country.Credit where it's due, right? Alisyn Camerota did a phenomenal job of trying to point out every single time Rick Santorum said something that wasn't true. That was a full-time job during this interview because the man wouldn't stop saying things that were blatantly false.
