This Is The Dem Rep From CALIFORNIA Who Is Saying YES TO THE WALL!
There’s a big misconception politically in the United States when it comes to Democrats and Republicans that a lot of people get completely and totally wrong.
It’s the idea that anyone in any one political party agrees with every single thing on the agenda for each individual party.
That’s just not true. If you have someone that agrees with everything about something than that person is just going for a knee jerk reaction than actually thinking about the issues at hand.
For example, there are Democrats out there that are completely and totally wrong on abortion for example. They have no problem with the idea of abortions being totally legal. All we can do is pray for them to see the light on that one.
However, when it comes to having something like a secure border, they are totally on board with us as far as that goes. And if you can agree with someone on one thing, maybe someday you might agree with them on two things and the like.
Despite what the mainstream media would want you to think nothing is as black and white as they make it out to be. There are Democrats that simply do not agree with every single tenet of the Democratic Party.
The Freshman Democrat congresswomen from California stunned CNN’s Poppy Harlow when she seemed to be asking an innocuous question, that every good, Trump-hating Democrat should answer the same way, right?
But, oops…Rep. Katie Hill, the daughter of Republican parents, who also comes from a family of law enforcement officers, didn’t quite answer Poppy’s question the way she expected.
CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked a question that was meant to confirm that Democrats won’t budge on their opposition to Trump’s border wall: “How can the White House, the Republicans, believe that you one thousand percent that you’re going to give any money on the wall—when the Pres…I mean—Nancy Pelosi herself, said, “No—zero dollars for the wall”?
Harlow asked, “Do you think Democrats should give any money to the wall?”
Harlow couldn’t hide the disgust on her face when Rep. Katie Hill responded by changing the subject to what the wall will be called. As she attempted to rephrase the conversation with a focus on the name of the physical barrier between Mexico and the US.
Rep. Hill responded to Harlow, “It’s a high priority for my district. You know— like you said, I come from a Republican family, a law enforcement family. We understand the need for border security.”
Poppy pushed on, reminding the Freshman Congresswoman that one-third of her constituents are federal workers, and are being affected by the partial government shutdown.
Harlow desperately wanted clarification about whether or not Rep. HIll would vote to support funding for Trump’s wall, saying: “Call it steel slats then if you will, in areas where there aren’t any natural barriers. Call it what you want. Will you, as a Democrat vote for any funding for that?
CNN’s Poppy Harlow: “I just want a really straight answer here: will you vote for any money for a steel barrier?”
Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA): “I mean, I will definitely, I don’t know if it’s steel, I will vote for some money for physical barriers.” pic.twitter.com/V7VotOyRwh
