Hemingway on Media's Avocado Concerns: It Shows How 'Unserious' They Are About Border Security
The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway said the media's coverage of a potential avocado shortage shows how "unserious" they are about national security and the humanitarian crisis unfolding at the Mexican border.
On "Fox & Friends," Ainsley Earhardt played a montage of MSNBC and other network hosts lamenting the possibility that America will run out of avocados in three weeks if President Trump follows through on his threat to shut down the border.
Congress must get together and immediately eliminate the loopholes at the Border! If no action, Border, or large sections of Border, will close. This is a National Emergency!

Hemingway said that, while the media is concerned about "breakfast," some people "are worried about the rule of law and national sovereignty."
"When the media focuses on whether or not they are going to get their breakfast with avocado toast, it just shows how unserious they are about this very pressing issue," Hemingway said.
She added that the avocado panic seems to have trumped any border control concerns in the eyes of the press.
"There are so many people flowing over the border, there's so many flowing across parts of the border not currently guarded," she said.
