On Wednesday night, MSNBC once more placed on show how aligned the liberal community is with the far left as host Pleasure Reid entertained the potential for Donald Trump administration members being tried on the Hague for presumably breaking worldwide regulation by allegedly “torturing” unlawful immigrants when kids had been being separated from their dad and mom after unlawful border crossings. She fumed, “Ought to members of this administration come up earlier than the Hague for what they’ve carried out?” 

For his half, correspondent Jacob Soboroff expressed sympathy for the left-wing anti-Trump “resistance” as he lamented having to criticize former Deputy Lawyer Normal Rod Rosenstein who’s in any other case admired by the liberal crowd for authorizing the Russia probe.

The ReidOut was one among a number of MSNBC reveals on Wednesday that hyped a report by the New York Times shedding gentle on which Trump administration members voted in assist of prosecuting all unlawful border crossings, with Reid calling it “one of many darkest chapters … in American historical past.” She additionally could not convey herself to make use of the phrase “illegally” as she recalled that migrants had crossed the border “with out paperwork.”

When she gave Soboroff an opportunity to answer the Instances report, he lamented:

 

 

What I noticed on the time with my very own eyes — what Physicians for Human Rights now calls the “torture” of 5,500 folks, based on the UN definition, was precisely what was enjoying out, and that what we had been informed on the time had been lies, they usually knew precisely what they had been doing — Jeff Periods, Rod Rosenstein, particularly — Rod Rosenstein, you realize, I am sorry to say, a hero to many in “the Resistance.”

Reid adopted up by turning to her different visitor, Sergio Gonzales — a former advisor to Democratic Senator Kamala Harris — and requested if Trump administration members must be tried on the Hague for his or her dealing with of unlawful immigrants, although they had been following the regulation because it was on the time:

That is thought-about torture — taking breast-feeding kids from their mothers and separating households on this approach. And all I might consider once we had been making ready for this phase right now speaking to my producers is whether or not or not these are thought-about worldwide crimes, that means: Ought to members of this administration come up earlier than the Hague for what they’ve carried out — Jeff Periods, the previous, you realize, DHS head, all of them, Donald Trump possibly?

With out anybody clarifying that it was really the Barack Obama administration that built the so-called “cages” and beginning utilizing them to carry unlawful border crossers for a day or two till they are often relocated into extra everlasting detention facilities, Gonzales agreed with the premise of Reid’s query:

Sure, there isn’t any query there are human rights abuses, and I feel, lengthy after Donald Trump and Mike Pence depart the White Home … that is going to be one of many darkest chapters in American historical past. The truth that babies, infants had been ripped away from their moms’ arms and that these kids had been put in cages with out their dad and mom, with poor therapy, is one thing that this nation and that all of us are going to must cope with and reconcile for a very long time.

After Reid and Gonzales repeated the purpose once more, suggesting that it must be troublesome for Trump administration members to journey abroad due to their “cruelty,” the MSBNC host inserted an accusation of racism as she asserted that the coverage was aimed toward “a really explicit shades of individuals.”

Earlier within the day, Morning Joe, MSNBC Dwell with Hallie Jackson and MSNBC Dwell with Katy Tur additionally devoted segments to hyping the Instances article.

The ReidOut

7:44 p.m. Jap

JEFF SESSIONS, EX-ATTORNEY GENERAL (in June 2018 interview): It hasn’t been good, and the American folks don’t love the concept that we’re separating households. We by no means actually meant to do this.

JOY REID: “By no means meant to.” Almost 3,000 kids had been ripped away from their dad and mom after crossing the Southern border with out paperwork as a part of Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance coverage in 2018. It is one of many darkest chapters of the Trump administration and, frankly, in American historical past. 

(…)

JACOB SOBOROFF: There isn’t any doubt, Pleasure, that what I noticed on the time with my very own eyes — what Physicians for Human Rights now calls the “torture” of 5,500 folks, based on the UN definition, was precisely what was enjoying out, and that what we had been informed on the time had been lies, they usually knew precisely what they had been doing — Jeff Periods, Rod Rosentein, particularly — Rod Rosenstein, you realize, I am sorry to say, a hero to many in “the Resistance.”

(…)

REID: The USA is not a part of the UN Human Rights Council. The Trump administration pulled us out of it in 2018. So we’re not part of that. The U.S. can also be not part of the Worldwide Prison Court docket. Nevertheless, that is thought-about torture — taking breast-feeding kids from their mothers and separating households on this approach. And all I might consider once we had been making ready for this phase right now speaking to my producers is whether or not or not these are thought-about worldwide crimes, that means: Ought to members of this administration come up earlier than the Hague for what they’ve carried out — Jeff Periods, the previous, you realize, DHS head, all of them, Donald Trump possibly?

SERGIO GONZALES, EX-ADVISOR TO SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS: Sure, there isn’t any query there are human rights abuses, and I feel, lengthy after Donald Trump and Mike Pence depart the White Home — and that shall be in November — that is going to be one of many darkest chapters in American historical past. The truth that babies, infants had been ripped away from their moms’ arms and that these kids had been put in cages with out their dad and mom, with poor therapy, is one thing that this nation and that all of us are going to must cope with and reconcile for a very long time.

And so, to reply your query, I completely consider that these are crimes towards humanity, and my earlier boss — who’s going to be on the controversy stage tonight, Senator Kamala Harris — I labored along with her on this subject. She routinely referred to this as a human rights abuse.

REID: Is there a world physique that would even have the aptitude. I imply, I keep in mind in the course of the George W. Bush administration when there was a whole lot of speak of whether or not it must be rather more troublesome for Dick Cheney, particularly, or different members of the administration to journey abroad due to the torture of Iraqis and that there was some sanction to make it actual laborious to journey. In your view, do you assume that is one thing that ought to occur to the individuals who did this to those kids and to those dad and mom?

GONZALES: Sure, I consider that these folks must be held to account for the atrocities which were dedicated in our identify towards these kids and their dad and mom — hundreds of children separated from their dad and mom — and never simply separated, however once more, the varieties of situations that these kids had been positioned beneath. That is an administration who argued that kids weren’t entitled to toothpaste and cleaning soap in detention settings. That is one thing that we’ve not seen — whenever you type of consider that, what involves thoughts, proper, camps. And also you assume again to focus camps. And so I’ve usually mentioned that once we have a look at immigration, particularly. cruelty has been the purpose of this administration — inflicting as a lot cruelty as potential on as many individuals as potential.

REID: Yeah, certainly, and on a really explicit shades of individuals — let’s simply put it that approach.
