CNN Host Practically Begs Syrian Refugee To Slam Trump, Instead He Goes Scorched Earth On Liberal Hypocrisy [Watch]

Mike Miller, Independent Journal Review

Following the deadly chemical weapons attack in Syria last week, CNN's Brooke Baldwin aired a segment with refugee Kassem Eid — a reported survivor of the 2013 chemical weapons attack — during which Eid pleaded with President Donald Trump to “not make the same mistake President Obama did” and “let Assad walk away.”

Baldwin brought Eid back Friday and attempted to frame Trump as a hypocrite over his concern for babies killed in the attack — as contrasted with his foreign travel ban.

After playing a clip of Hillary Clinton denouncing Trump by stating that “we cannot in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America's doors to them," Baldwin asked Eid to respond.

Bad idea.

"With all due respect, I didn't see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban. I didn't see you three days ago when people were gassed to death.

I didn't see you in 2013 when 1,400 people were gassed to death. I didn't see you raising your voice against President Obama's inaction in Syria that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria.

If you really care about refugees, help us stay in our country. ... We don't want to become refugees."

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it. 

-- Milton Friedman,
