CNN’s Angela Rye Refuses to Admit that Donald Trump is Her President

CNN contributor Angela Rye has done everything she can to spread the idea that President Trump is not her Commander-in-Chief. On a Monday segment, she went to great lengths saying over and over again how she didn’t recognize Trump as her president.

That’s when Republican Rep. Jack Kingston responded. And, boy, was it epic!

Angela Rye, the former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus and CNN contributor, refused to accept on CNN on Monday that President Trump is the president of the United States.

Arguing with former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA), Rye said, “There are a lot of things that your president has done to defy logic.”

“Your president, too, Angela. Your president too,” Kingston responded with a smile.

“He’s your president,” Rye shot back.

“The president of the United States,” CNN host John Berman said as he concluded the segment, seemingly agreeing with Kingston.

Watch the tense exchange here:

Here’s why I am not pressed to start calling Rye any type of names. It is ironic when eight years ago, many Republicans said Barack Obama was not their president. Now with Trump in office, it’s the Democrats turn to say, “not my President.”

You don’t have to say or even believe it, but if you are an American citizen, I’m sorry to break the news, but Trump is, in fact, your president. I never claimed Obama to be my president while he sat in the Oval Office. But I didn’t go around publicly saying that. I knew in my heart what we conservatives needed to do politically and we were able to win this past election with Trump.

Are you angry at Rye for saying Trump isn’t her President? Do you think she’s just having a temper tantrum and will have to get over it sooner or later? Share your opinions below in the comment section. And add this article to your Facebook/Twitter page.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
