8 times MSNBC, CNN hosts flip-flopped on border crisis rhetoric, from Chuck Todd to Wolf Blitzer

MSNBC and CNN pundits downplayed the notion the situation along the southern border was a crisis until suddenly shifting the narrative.

The theory that the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border was manufactured by President Trump's administration to score political points hit a fever pitch in early January as the president declared a "humanitarian and security crisis" during a primetime Oval Office address.

The overwhelming migrant flows and poor conditions at some detention centers have since become undeniable, resulting in prominent liberal pundits flip-flopping on the issue.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough

"He is going to be telling nothing but lies and falsehoods, and he’s going to be twisting reality,” Scarborough said on Jan. 8. “And at this point, I’ve got to say, how stupid are Americans who still believe there’s a crisis on the southern border?"

But on June 10, Scarborough reversed course and called the situation a "crisis" after all.

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd

"[Trump's] claims about why he needs the wall, who is going to pay for it, how is he going to build it, and who he thinks it would stop have been endlessly debunked and endlessly contradicted by his own statements and misstatements. Just consider this one: He is going to argue before the nation tonight that there is a full-blown crisis at the southern border," Todd said on Jan. 8.

But on June 25, Todd opened "Meet the Press Daily" by declaring breaking news regarding "the humanitarian crisis having to do with the migrants coming over the southern border."

MSNBC’s Brian Williams

"Tonight, the president tries to sell a crisis that the facts tell us does not exist, and he used the backdrop of the Oval Office do it," Williams said on Jan. 8 when recapping Trump's primetime Oval Office address.

But on June 25, Williams said Special Counsel Robert Mueller agreed to come to Congress and testify "as this President is facing a crisis on the border."

In 2009, in the midst of a multi-year decline in the undocumented immigrant population,[1] Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), then Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security, inserted the following language regarding Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) detention budget into the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2010: “…funding made available under this heading shall maintain a level of not less than 33,400 detention beds.”[2] This directive established what would become a controversial policy interpreted by ICE as a mandate to contract for and fill 33,400 (increased in 2013 to 34,000)[3] detention beds on a daily basis. The directive would come to be known as the “immigrant detention quota” or “bed mandate.” The immigration detention quota is unprecedented; no other law enforcement agency operates under a detention quota mandated by Congress.

Dumb Alfie is very confused. Let's see if we can clear things up. Trump talks about a made up crisis that doesn't exist. Trump consistently makes up claims without evidence to support it. The real crisis at the border are the death of over 30 migrant kids in concentration camps and the deplorable and inhumane conditions of the concentration camps. Trump doesn't talk abut the real crisis. But he does make them up without any evidence. Here you go! 500 example of crisis made up by Trump. He's got you confused! :laugh  :laugh  :laugh

You usually call migrates and refugees illegals? What's going on? Earlier you claimed you didn't call asylum seekers illegals?

If you open the link, do you find dead illegals?
