CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin could not get a straight answer out of Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.) Wednesday when she accosted her about the hypocrisy of demanding President Donald Trump change the family separation policy that existed before he took office.
“Did you speak up against them then?”
“As so many people in this country are certainly outraged by the cages and the thermal blankets and the facilities housing these kids, you know, they were all there in 2014 under President Obama,” Brooke Baldwin said, “and my question to you Senator Baldwin is did you speak up against them then?”
“You know, on the, on this issue,” Senator Baldwin responded, “that we get into a moment where we’re making progress and then when it stalls, we turn around, I think we all need to continue to be focused on it and press it through.”
“The American people need confidence that we can solve problems,” she continued. “Nobody believes that we have an immigration system that works. It is broken, it needs fixing, but we’ve just got to resolve to do that.”
“But were you worried about it then?” Brooke Baldwin pressed on. “Did you raise your voice under the Obama administration?
Sen. Baldwin offered one instance where she raised her voice about someone detained at the border, but then continued to shift the focus away from the responsibility of individual politicians.
