Brzezinski Slams Nielsen as ‘the Face of the Trump Administration’s Abuse of Children’ at Border

Thursday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski reacted to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony at a House Homeland Security Committee’s hearing.

Brzezinski slammed Nielsen, calling her the “face of the Trump administration’s abuse of children at the border.”

“I don’t know any way to say it, she’s become the face of the Trump administration’s abuse of children at the border,” Brzezinski said. “Secretary Nielsen is presiding over a humanitarian crisis at the border caused by the White House that now requires skill, urgency and humanity to resolve. And instead, once again, at Wednesday’s hearings, she acted like a hapless, hostile, hopeless robot. … Secretary Nielsen’s incompetence is having a direct impact on the most vulnerable — children.”

She continued, “When she says they don’t use cages, look at these pictures. She’s defying the obvious in the most Trump-like way. Do you see those cages? They have roofs on them. The people are locked in there — children, too. The situation is shameful. And it just seems like she lacks the ability to care about the border crisis in a real way.”
