Sarah Huckabee Sanders reads DU?????

 
This morning SHS told Fox & Friends that she said 4000 terrorist come in through our southern border because "even one is one too many" which is the phrase the CAPTION-Trump used yesterday which reads, in part: "Some people say 4,000 terrorists tried to come across illegally, some people say six, . . . but even one is one too many. . . . . We could learn about the next illegal in the form of a mushroom cloud."


Maybe today Trump or one of his puppets will bring up the mushroom cloud.

Here's the entire CAPTION:

While I'd like to find her actual quote, in context, this NBC News article shows that Sanders used the wrong data rather than lied:

Quote
WASHINGTON — White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday that Customs and Border Protection picked up nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists last year "that came across our southern border."

But in fact, the figure she seems to be citing is based on 2017 data, not 2018, and refers to stops made by Department of Homeland Security across the globe, mainly at airports.

In fiscal 2017, the latest year for which data is available, according to agency data and the White House's own briefing sheet, the Department of Homeland Security prevented nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists from "traveling to or entering the United States."

The partisan versions of this "fact-check" arrive at the 4 or 6 figure by distinguishing between US citizens or legal residents and those entering illegally, a distinction Sanders did not make. That disingenuous distinction reduces a number in the 40s to the "reported" 4 or 6.

If DUpipo and their fellow-traveler-Progs want to argue that 40 terrorists are an insignificant number, they should make that argument to a person who lost a loved one or friend in the WTC or Pentagon.
Facts don't matter to DUpipo

Well if she used the wrong data she obviously got it from DU. "DU the home of wrong data"
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Every Prog media source in the country were chortling over this - or calling her a liar. I doubt Sarah Sanders know DU exists - nor the Cave.
