During an MSNBC segment Monday morning, cameras inadvertently caught an obscenity sure to chill the spine of leftists everywhere: reality. The crushing blow to the network’s activist narrative came in the form of — gasp — illegal aliens sneaking into the country, right where MSNBC doesn’t think a wall needs to be.
For a piece titled “Designing Trump’s Wall,” correspondent Jacob Soboroff was near the southern U.S. border when suddenly a group of illegal immigrants easily negotiated an erected fence, entering the United States right there in front of God and everybody.
Just prior, Soboroff asked a Border Patrol agent about the existing fence, “So what happens now? Does the president come out here and literally say, ‘Okay, I like that one?’” The agent replied, “We’re going to test it for breach-ability, for the sub-terrain aspect…can we dig under it, can we cut through it, scale over it?”
As the agent was explaining, a group approached the fence and jumped over it. As if shocked to learn that people actually do sneak into the country, Soboroff exclaimed:
“What happened?! The people are crossing!”
Sure to seize the dramatic opportunity to paint the illegals in a sympathetic light, Soboroff narrated:
“Almost on cue, a group of asylum-seekers…jumped over the existing fence to turn themselves in to border agents on horseback.”
Continuing at the border, Soboroff said to the officer:
"A small group of three people just jumped over in the middle of the day!...Can you explain what’s going on?”
The agent responded:
“This is the reality of every-day border enforcement. The United States is the draw for people with dire situations where they are at. We are going to continue to witness this. It plays out on a regular basis for us.”
Another thing that plays out on a regular basis is MSNBC trying to discredit President Trump at every turn. But Monday, they accidentally proved him right: America needs to secure its border.
