Whether you agree with Pat that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is the “worst living human being on the planet” or Stu that he is not just senile or evil but “evnile,” there is no question Reid’s behavior has become increasingly erratic. His most recent claims about the border seem to further solidify the fear that Reid may be losing it.
“I'm concerned for our country. There is something wrong with the man. There is something deeply wrong with the man that goes way beyond politics,” Glenn said. “No man can actually get away with saying this that doesn't need serious psychological examination.”
After the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch on Tuesday, which included a briefing from Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NV), Reid steadfastly declared the southern border is “secure.”
“The border is secure,” Reid said. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”
According to The Hill, Reid then added Congress should worry less about securing the border and more on approving President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to deal with the current immigration crisis.
Glenn is not the only one questioning Reid’s mental state. As TheBlaze reported, conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer debated the topic during an appearance on Fox News.
“When you hear Harry Reid saying the border is secure, you got to wonder, you know, whether he’s on his medication or not,” Krauthammer said. “That is so detached from reality.”
Reid’s comments follow those of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who visited a Border Patrol facility housing illegal immigrants last month.
During a press conference in Brownsville, Texas, Pelosi called the recent influx of Central Americans across the U.S. border an “opportunity” rather than a “crisis” before adding that wished she could take some of the 60,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children home with her.
“I wish I could take all those children home with me,” Pelosi said.
Below are Pelosi’s full remarks (applicable video begins around the 6-minute mark):
“Nancy Pelosi has come out and said she wishes that she could take all of the immigrant children home with her. I invite her to do so,” Glenn said. “She's got more than enough money to adopt all kinds of children. She could set up her own shelter.”
In fact, Glenn believes all the politicians who have said the bussing of these illegal immigrants to cities around the U.S. is no big deal should have to open up their own communities to these individuals.
“I want all of these illegal immigrants shipped right directly to [Rep.] John Lewis' (D-GA) home district. I want them all going to San Francisco… I want them all to go to Boston,” Glenn said. “Ship every single one of them. Because liberals [apparently] understand some things that conservatives don't. Liberals [think] that they can make this work. That this isn't going to affect your community in any negative way. ‘It is a blessing’… The minute we start shipping these people to their towns is the minute they will all have a problem.”
