Somewhere, Roger Ailes' face has turned an alarming shade of crimson. Today on Fox News Sunday, George Will went maverick and gave something for the blue-haired set to wag their disapproving tongues at for some time to come.
George Will: We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America, you’re going to go to school, and get a job, and become Americans. We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. The idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old criminals with their teddy bears is preposterous.What oh what is the world coming to when you can't reliably click on Fox News to get a good dose of racist hate against all of those filthy, diseased children overrunning our border to bring America to its knees?
Chris Wallace: You got to know, I mean I can just sort of feel them clicking off, that we’re going to get tons of email saying, ‘This guy doesn’t understand the border. Why should we be dealing with Central America’s problem? We can’t import the problem, they’ve got to deal with it there, and our border has to mean something.
George Will: We can handle this problem is what I’m saying. We’ve handled what Emma Lazarus called the ‘wretched refuse of your teeming shore’ a long time ago, and a lot more people than this.
George Will has said some pretty despicable things over the years without repercussion. Wouldn't it be ironic if he were to be sent packing for showing a modicum of humanity on reliably inhumane Fox News.
