Towards the end of the Fox News program “Outnumbered” co-host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, who also hosts her own show “Kennedy” on Fox Business, had some choice words for House minority leader Nancy Pelosi.
After playing a clip of Pelosi, strongly denouncing President Donald Trump’s proposed latest immigration stances as “trash,” Kennedy said the former speaker reminder her of a dog.
“She reminds me of a very unfriendly Chihuahua. I think she has betrayed Dreamers. They are upset with her. I don’t think they’re going to forgive her anytime soon,” said Kennedy. “She has spent so much political capital within her own party. She has taken so many groups for granted. And she has lost their support as well. I think she is the absolute wrong person to be putting in front of this issue.”
Trump and Democrats are currently negotiating over a deal that would protect the roughly 800,000 DACA recipients, commonly known as Dreamers in the United States. Earlier this week, the president, released a number of tough demands, including wall funding — a third rail for Democrats like Pelosi.
Trump formally ordered the end of the DACA program in September, but punted the issue to Congress, giving the body six month to craft a legislative solution. It remains unclear what will happen to individuals in the United States under DACA if a deal is not struck.
