Fox News WTF?!

Clueless Bartiromo Asks Jim Jordan Why There’s No Money For The Border Wall In Biden’s Infrastructure Bill

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo said Sunday she simply cannot understand why 13 House Republicans voted for President Joe Biden’s $1.2 billion infrastructure bill, which will be signed by the president on Monday at the White House. After all, she noted, it didn’t contain any funding for the border wall that was one of former President Donald Trump’s pet projects.

On “Morning Futures,” Bartiromo told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH):

“Where is the accountability? What would your colleagues, thirteen Republicans, vote for this bill when there is not a dime in it for the border wall?”

Jordan seemed unsure why Bartiromo was attacking him for what his colleagues did:

“Yeah, I mean, I don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I wish they wouldn’t have voted for it. I wish this thing hadn’t have passed, there is simply no accountability for how we spend taxpayer dollars in the Biden administration.”

Those 13 Republicans voted for the infrastructure bill because they know it’s going to be good for their districts and states. Even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called the package a “godsend” for his state:

“We have a lot of infrastructure needs, both in rural areas and with big bridges. It’s a godsend for Kentucky.”

The wall, on the other hand, was never anything but a political stunt by Trump to appeal to his racist base of supporters who hate the very thought of anyone being allowed to seek a better life in the United States, even though most of us wouldn’t be here now were it not for immigration.

Sorry, Maria, but your question is almost a stupid as your opposition to rebuilding the roads, bridges, and other crumbling infrastructure in this country.
