According to Fox host and political pundit Mark Levin, the Democratic rebut to President Donald Trump’s speech reveals that the Democratic leadership are “pathological liars.”
Levin’s comments came as he was a guest of Sean Hannity on his program, shortly after the president’s Tuesday speech.
According to Levin, both Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi haven’t done anything to secure the border in almost “half a century.”
The Fox host also called President Trump’s address to the nation an “outstanding speech” that underscored the importance of border security in general, and the wall specifically.
Levin said that Schumer and Pelosi had the opposite effect and that the two leaders have accomplished so little in the last few decades that they have little to show for themselves.
“Schumer began his term on Capitol Hill as a congressman in 1981, and later the Senate after defeating popular Republican Sen. Alfonse ‘Al’ D’Amato in 1998,” Fox News reported.
“Schumer’s House seat was filled by his then-longtime aide, Anthony Weiner.
“Pelosi was first elected in 1987 as the endorsed successor of Rep. Sala Burton (D-Calif.). Levin said the two Democrats and their caucus successfully ‘fooled’ every Republican president from Ronald Reagan through George W. Bush”
“[Schumer and Pelosi] are part of the scam artists. They get amnesty, legalization, citizenship — and never secure the border,” Levin said.
“They’re not going to fool Donald Trump,” he said.
Levin also noted that past presidents, specifically Reagan and both Bushes have agreed to other “amnesty-type legislation” as a bargaining chip for border security.
However, Levin pointed out that like other former top Democrats, Schumer and Pelosi “are never forced to explain their flip-flop” on the issue of illegal immigration.
The former Justice Department member said that he believes the change in opinion could have to do with American companies being in favor of illegal immigration, because of the unskilled workers that result from it.
“[It’s] Democratic Party before country,” Levin said.
