Fox Host Maria Bartiromo Suggests Baltimore Bridge Accident May Be Linked To Border Crisis

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo suggested this morning that the late-night accident that caused the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore may be linked to what’s transpiring at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Speaking with Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott, Bartiromo remarked, “Let me also get your take in terms of what’s going on in world affairs. The White House has issued a statement on [the bridge collapse], saying there’s no indication of nefarious intent in the collapse of the Francis Scott Key bridge … You’ve been talking a lot about the potential for wrongdoing or the potential for foul play given the wide-open border … Why have the Republicans had such a hard time securing this border?”

What in the actual f*ck is she talking about? There is absolutely NOTHING about the accident that would suggest any connection to the border or immigration, as the Baltimore Sun notes when it comes to the investigation.

In the middle of the night, a massive, driftless container ship traveling 9 mph issued a “mayday” as it traversed toward the iconic Francis Scott Key Bridge. The ship had departed the Port of Baltimore only 30 minutes prior, but as it tried to navigate the channel, it lost power before colliding with a support column, causing a din that could be heard ashore and immediately toppling the essential mid-Atlantic thoroughfare into the frigid waters below.

Twitter users were outraged by Bartiromo’s comments.
