CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin had a chemical attack survivor on her show Friday to discuss the Syrian regime’s sarin gas attack on civilians in Khan Sheikhoun, and President Trump’s subsequent military response. To say Baldwin’s transparent attempt to coax an anti-Trump soundbite from Kassem Eid — who now lives in Germany — wildly backfired, is an understatement.
Kassem said he cried with joy when he heard that the United States had bombed the Syrian airbase. “I thanked God, “I was overwhelmed,” he said.
Baldwin acknowledged that the president received praise from both Democrats and Republicans following the missile strike, but made made sure to point out; “At the same time, he doesn’t want Syrians to come into this country with this refugee ban.”
She then queued up a clip of none other than Hillary Clinton weighing in on Trump’s dastardly travel ban at an event earlier this year: “We cannot speak of protecting Syria’s babies, and in the next breath close America’s doors to them,“ Clinton intoned.
“Quickly Kassem, how do you see that?” Baldwin asked, hoping for a big anti-Trump soundbite to ensue.
A soundbite ensued, alright. Kassem proceeded to tear into bleeding heart liberals like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for being more concerned with sending Syrians hither and thither than actually helping them in their own country.
“With all due respect, with all due respect,” Kassem began. “I didn’t see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban… I didn’t see you three days ago when people were gassed to death…I didn’t see you in 2013 when 1,400 people were gassed to death. I didn’t see you raising your voice against President Obama’s inaction in Syria that left us refugees,” he said, completely deflating her expectations.
“If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please — help us stay here in our country,” he continued. “We don’t want to come to the United States. We want to stay in our country. We want to stay in our country,” he repeated. “With all due respect, this is hypocrisy. If you really care, if you really care…help us stay in our country. We don’t want to become refugees. We want to stay in our country. Help us establish safe zones, he pleaded.
