Sharyl Attkisson hits Bill Kristol over the head with the cold, hard truth on immigration

It would appear that the more time conservative political analyst Bill Kristol spends on CNN and MSNBC advising Democrats on how to defeat President Donald Trump, the more he mimics their tactics — such as conflating legal and illegal immigration.

But leave it to former CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson to call him out for the deception.

Kristol posted an ad sponsored by a ‘conservative’ group that takes a not-so-subtle dig at the president over his staunch stance against illegal immigration.

“This ad will air tomorrow morning, July 4th, on selected stations including Fox News, to remind our fellow Americans, Republicans and conservatives that we are a nation of immigrants, and stronger for it,” he tweeted.

The ad is from the conservative group Becoming American Initiative, and uses Reagan to attack President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” for illegal immigration.

The group’s director, Linda Chavez, served in the Reagan administration, but doesn’t appear to adhere to the former president’s rule of not attacking fellow Republicans.

Nonetheless, when Reagan spoke of immigrants, he was speaking about those who came to America legally, through the front door — a point Attkisson aptly reminded Kristol of as he declared that “we are a nation of immigrants.”

The encouraging thing is, despite all the ginned up hysteria by the media, is that outside of the Democrat Party, which now openly advocates for illegal immigrants over American citizens, people seem to get it when it come to Trump’s endeavors to finally fix the problem.

At least, the reaction from social media users suggests as much, even if they are less than kind to Kristol, whose hatred for Trump appears to cloud his judgement, as one social media user noted.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
