Fox's Howard Kurtz: Women in media criticize Ivanka Trump because they feel "a personal resentment" toward her

Fox's Howard Kurtz: Women in media criticize Ivanka Trump because they feel "a personal resentment" toward her

BILL HEMMER (CO-HOST): ​So Ivanka Trump under fire on this family separation crisis even though she lobbied her father to change the policy. Some media outlets are still criticizing the president’s daughter​ and Howard Kurtz has a look at ​all that. Fox News media analyst and host of ​Media Buzz​​ with me now​. Howie, ​how are you doing, ​what have you found,​ what have you heard, what have you​ read about this?

​HOWARD KURTZ (FOX NEWS MEDIA ANALYST): What I’m seeing is a pattern here of liberal pundits led by MSNBC​’s Mika Brzezinski,​ beating up on ​I​vanka Trump​ for not going public ​ ​and criticizing her father. ​CNN had a piece, “Ivanka’s deafening silence.” ​Except we now know ​that ​she was not just pressing her father publicly​,​ she was bringing him pictures of the kids at the border saying we have to do something about this​, ​c​ontributing to changing his mind​,​ and in other words, as she chose to engage i​n​ private persuasion rather than public virtue signaling. My sources say ​that​ reflects her style of ​preferring to ​trying to get​ some​ action as opposed to ​just ​joining the Washington ​blab.​

​HEMMER: ​So let me just read one of your lines. “​This has become the go-to move ​especially ​for female pundits on the left.​”​ What​’​s that about?

​KURTZ: There​’​s a personal resentment that many of them have. They think​ that​ Ivanka Trump​,​ who ​wa​s not a political operative before​,​ is more socially moderate or liberal and ​secretly ​agrees with them​.​ ​A​nd​, therefore,​ they expect every time ​one of these​ controvers​ies​ come up for her to​ go​ public and rip her father. The​y’​ll never be happy unless she does that. ​

Kilmeade and Kobach bemoan federal judge's ruling that Kansas' extreme voter registration law is unconstitutional

Kilmeade and Kobach bemoan federal judge's ruling that Kansas' extreme voter registration law is unconstitutional

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Kris, we have a little bit of news. A judge — it’s not good news for you. Judge tossed this Kansas proof of citizenship voter law. So get this, if you bring — you wanted people to have to bring ID to vote, and this judge says no you don’t have to.

KRIS KOBACH (KANSAS SECRETARY OF STATE): So our law says you have to prove citizenship when you register, and this opinion is a very extreme one, which I think will not stand on appeal. She basically takes a position I’m not aware of any other federal judge in America taking, that it is unconstitutional for a state to require proof of citizenship. Even the Ninth Circuit, the liberal Ninth Circuit rejected that argument 10 years ago. So I’m pretty confident on appeal the state of Kansas will prevail.

KILMEADE: Yeah. There are laws that are hard to figure out, this was not one of them. But they got it wrong, it seems.

Fox Business host whines about "disrespect" by Democrats and citizens protesting Trump administration's policy of ripping immigrant families apart

STUART VARNEY (HOST): It was a disgraceful display of disrespect. Throughout the day, and late into the night, the left poured out its scorn for President Trump. It was unprecedented. It started early. The hearing on the Clinton email scandal was hijacked within seconds of it beginning. Democrat Jerrold Nadler demanding a discussion of family separation, not the Clinton email problem. Every Democrat on the panel followed suit. Two women with babies interrupted the hearing, calling the president inhuman. Democrat Elijah Cummings, close to tears, talked about child internment camps. 

Later, President Trump went to Capitol Hill to discuss immigration. A woman screamed “F you” — right at him. The Democrat Hispanic Caucus got right in the president’s face shouting abuse right at him, and after that a confrontation Juan Vargas, Democrat, and Carlos Curbelo, Republican, it was the Democrat doing the shouting.

Away from Capitol Hill — Homeland Security Secretary Nielson tried to eat dinner in a Mexican restaurant. A socialist mob forced her out. And throughout the day, the president was reviled in the most personal terms. The shelters for children at the border — “concentration camps.” It’s come to this — Democrats believe they found an issue, family separation at the border. They piled on the emotion, and now the insults. We’re covering this throughout program, we’re going to show you what happened last night, you’ll hear it all, and we’ll ask what’s going to happen at the border when the next migrant surge arrives. Varney & Company is about to begin.

STEPHANIE RUHLE (HOST): ​​DHS Secretary Kirst​j​en Nielsen, we’ve been saying her name a lot these days. She’s justifying family separation by saying there​ i​s a huge jump in smugglers and gang members using kids unrelated to them to try to get inside the U.S. But​ Ms. Nielsen,​ I hope you’re watching​.​ For fact’s sake, you need to know ​some ​context. Here is specifically what ​S​ecretary Nielsen said at yesterday’s ​W​hite ​H​ouse briefing.

​KIRSTJEN NIELSEN (SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY): In the last five months we’ve had​ a​ 314​ percent​ increase in adults and children arriving at the border fraudulently claiming to be a family unit.

​RUHLE: Come on, now. The Washington ​P​ost points out this is actually a ​teeny ​tiny fraction of the families apprehended during that time period. ​Listen up. ​In​ fiscal year​ 2017​,​ there were 46 cases where people falsely claimed the children they were​ travelling​ with were​ actually​ theirs. In the first five months of fiscal year 2018, there was 191 of these cases​,​ which is ​in fact ​an increase of 315​ percent​. Those numbers sound big, right?

But here’s where the context couldn’t be more important. In the first five months of this fiscal year, more than 31,000 families were a​pprehended at the border. ​So if we know 191 of them were fraudulent, that​ i​s less than 1​ percent​. To put it another way, for every 1,000 families who are approached at the border at that time, only 6 involved are pretending to be a child’s parent. That is 6 out of 1,000. ​Six​ out of 1,000. It’s like saying all homeless people must be drunks or broken out of an insane asylum. It’s absurd.​
