“These Aren’t Our Kids”: Fox & Friends Belittles Stories Of Detained Children

Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade said Thursday "it's not like [Trump] is doing this to the people of Idaho or Texas.”

Thursday morning on Fox & Friends, host Brian Kilmeade minimized the trauma inflicted on migrant children at the border as they're separated from their parents, saying:

"These aren't our kids. Show them compassion, but it's not like he is doing this to the people of Idaho or Texas.”

Like President Trump's use of the terms "infest" and "animals", Kilmeade's words further work to dehumanize immigrants -- and in turn legitimize the maltreatment of fellow human beings by the federal government.

Watch above.
