Because nothing says “party” like being forced to drink from the toilet: Fox Host Brian Kilmeade compares overcrowded concentration camps to a crowded house party with too many people.
Kilmeade, who previously defended Trump’s family separation policy by claiming “These aren’t our kids… it’s not like he (Trump) is doing this to the people of Idaho or Texas” is now trying to minimize the horrific conditions faced by migrants being held in Trump administration concentration camps.
Speaking on Fox News earlier today Kilmeade compared the overcrowded concentration camps at the border to having a house party with 100 people and only two and a half bathrooms. Kilmeade said:
Here’s the thing. Picture yourself, you have a house, family of five. You have a party, you have 30 people over. Maybe you have a big party and you have 100 people over and you have two and a half baths. In the beginning, it would be OK with 30. Then after 100 people, it would be a little bit taxed, maybe you got to get an outdoor facility. Can you picture 5,000? You can have the best facilities in the world but they are so overstocked…
Adding insult to injury, after agreeing with Kilmeade, Fox Guest Co-Host Griff Jenkins complained about the term “concentration camps,” noting:
Well that’s a very important point. Look, you got to remember, the comparison to the concentration camp, her previous criticism, isn’t fair because all the people that are in our custody came on their own accord.
As one might imagine, the insensitive and cruel remarks were met with scorn by many. For example, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:
What was the last “party” you went to where you:
– Were locked in a cage under armed guard
– Drank out of a toilet
– & given food of such poor nutritional value, for so long, that it gave you mouth sores? https://t.co/UfO8EQzRbI

Bottom line: Fox Host Brian Kilmeade compares overcrowded concentration camps to a crowded house party with too many people.
