Former President William J. Clinton sent a sanctimonious tweet this morning meant to criticize President Donald J. Trump’s stance on illegal immigration.
“On this Father’s Day I’m thinking of the thousands of children separated from their parents at the border,” Clinton said. “These children should not be a negotiating tool. And reuniting them with their families would reaffirm America’s belief in & support for all parents who love their children.”

Right on cue, FOX News contributor Stephen Miller stepped in, responding “Sure bro,” and attaching a picture of the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) busting into the home where Elian Gonzalez was staying in 2000.
Gonzalez garnered massive press coverage when, as a young boy, Clinton’s Attorney General, Janet Reno ordered the him returned to Cuba to live with his father.
Gonzalez’s mother had drowned when he and twelve others fled Cuba for the United States in an aluminum boat. The ensuing custody battle was vicious, as Gonzalez’s family members in Miami fought against his deportation back to Cuba. Ultimately, the Clinton Administration signed off on the deportation and snatched Gonzalez at gunpoint in a pre-dawn raid on Easter Sunday, April 22, 2000. A three-judge federal panel then ruled that Gonzalez could not be deported until he had an asylum hearing. He was barred from receiving asylum on June 1 and sent away.
Now that Trump is president, Clinton wants to play the “moral superiority” card for political purposes. But Americans are not stupid. They remember that Clinton was notoriously hawkish on borders, at least in his rhetoric.
“We are a nation of immigrants, but ultimately we are a nation of laws,” said Clinton in his 1995 State of Union address, mirroring Trump’s immigration stance nearly word for word.
Watch the full clip here:
“[Citizens] are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country,” Clinton said. “The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers.”
Clinton went on to brag about his record hiring of border patrol agents promise faster deportations in the same speech.
It looks like Clinton has had a politically expedient change of heart.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.

If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
