CNN’s Moody On The Border With King and Bachmann

In some non-Ferguson related news… CNN’s Chris Moody spent time with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Congressman Steve King last week at the US-Mexico border. Chris discussed President Obama’s new executive order on immigration with the two staunchly opposed representatives.

King and Bachmann, whose districts are 1,000 miles from the border, have been adamant in their opposition to the President’s move, believing that it will encourage further illegal immigration. In July, the two visited a spot outside of Roma, Texas that overlooked the Rio Grande, where they supposedly captured footage of a pregnant woman crossing the river, as well as what they claimed were narcotraffickers.

Returning to the location with Moody last week, King stated, ”It just occurred to me, the pregnant mother who was put off on the side here, she surely had the baby. That little baby is an American citizen. Last night Barack Obama gave that little baby’s mother amnesty. She now has amnesty. Lawless, unconstitutional amnesty.”

However, King and Bachmann must’ve chosen a slow traffic day when returning with CNN, because this time, they were unable to find any border indiscretions.

John McCain (R-AZ), admitted that her father wishes she could be more like Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of President Bill Clinton and expected 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, in an interview with POLITICO “On Media” reporter Hadas Gold.

Referring to a 2012 interview with Playboy magazine, Meghan McCain told Gold:

“He was not pleased at all…That’s actually one of the few fights we’ve ever gotten in about things I’ve done publicly. He was just so embarrassed. And he was like, ‘Why can’t you be like Chelsea Clinton?’…He didn’t really say that but that’s what he’s thinking in his mind. So I just try to curb it a little more. I can’t really regret things you just have to move on and live your life.”

The two went on to discuss McCain’s repaired relationship with Rep. Michele Bachmann, critical comments of Sarah Palin, and respect for her father. For the full story, click on over to POLITICO.
