'It's Disgusting': McCain Rips NBC for Having Kids Read Fearful Letters to Trump
NBC News recently posted two videos that show children reading letters to President Trump, and discussing their hopes and fears under his administration.
The kids unanimously spoke out against Trump's policies, including a temporary travel ban, a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and "extreme vetting" of refugees.
They also expressed concern about Trump taking the country in the wrong direction and stirring up hatred.
"Most of my family is black," one boy said. "I’m afraid that you’re going to hurt some of us blacks."
Another said, "You may be the most powerful man in the country, but you are still a servant to every one of us."
"Some of my friends are really scared about you building a wall and the travel ban," a young girl said.
On "Outnumbered" today, Meghan McCain said the video made her "wildly uncomfortable," because she hates seeing children being used for propaganda.
"This is despicable," she said. "It's a really gross political trick. And it's really dirty and it's really low-brow."
She said she was surprised that NBC would put their name behind these "disgusting" videos, and she called for them to be removed immediately.
Harris Faulkner agreed that it's "disturbing," because these children are clearly too young to understand the actual facts. Judge Alex Ferrer noted that it appears obvious that the political messages were scripted for the children to read.
