I would rather Rachel ask about issues other than the big story of the week, which this week is border issues, putting people in cages, separating families. We get these rote, canned responses from the candidates because they've been asked about it so much. And on the issue of this week, most of the Dem base knows that any candidate with a chance of getting the nomination will not do what the Trump Administration is doing. By focusing so much on immigration issues, it just energizes the Trump base who believe these people are bringing drugs, violent crime, and terrorism into America and stealing jobs along the way. Ask the candidates about economic development, taxes, health care, climate change, the deficit, how they will work with a divided Congress, hate crimes, mass shootings, military spending, and so on. What will be their biggest priorities in the first 100 days, what will they do by executive order, what legislation will they try to pass?
Give Julie Brown and the Miami Herald a Pulitzer, a Peabody, and any other prize or accolade that exists. They did what Acosta as US Attorney was supposed to do - they gave victims a voice.
