I saw the interview with Gen. Flynn and Erin Burnett on CNN when it aired, these were my immediate thoughts…
It was bad.
BURNETT: So let me ask you, when Trump said — and you just heard him there in Trump’s piece — he said, “to keep immigration levels, measured by population share, within historical norms”, what is he saying? Because historically that would mean that you’re going to preserve a white country. If it changes and you have more people who are not white that want to come into the United States, this country could become white unless you were to keep immigration levels measured by population share within historical norms. Is that a white supremacist thing to say?
MICHAEL FLYNN: I don’t know the details of that so you’ve got me on that one there.
BURNETT: I know you said this is sort of beyond your area, but ‘to keep immigration levels measured by population share within historical norms’? Is there any way to interpret that other than to keep this country white?
FLYNN: I don’t know. I don’t know. I think what you’d have to do is you have to look at how do we currently do it, and the way we currently bring immigrants into this country and then take people through the legal process which I believe takes about 18 months on average. That’s what I believe. I think that that system is obviously not working, and the number of individuals in this country that stay beyond their visa period that are here, again, illegally, I mean, we have to fix this problem. We have to have security in this country. If we don’t, then we don’t have a country.
Feel free to complain about the out, Media Matters, if you want but the Trump surrogates are absolutely embarrassing.
Be better at this, this was a softball. Blow up Burnett as part of a biased and ridiculous media.
Here is what you can’t do, say “you got me” when asked if your candidate is racist.
