OPINION| ICYMI| This exchange happened back in October ’18, but we thought it would be interesting to see how it has aged since then. Who do you think has been proven to be right thus far? Do you think Water’s actions were justified?
Juan Williams seems to have lost his mind. He proved to be a semi-reasonable Democrat for numerous years when appearing on Fox News.
He seemed to see weigh both sides of any given issue before making judgement, but since President Donald Trump has taken office, Williams seems to have lost his mind. The man can’t be taken seriously anymore.
Case and point: Just look at what happened when he appeared Fox News’ “The Five” this week. Williams called his colleague a “liar” after reporting that the migrant caravan traveling from Central America to the United States is carrying criminals.
The Daily Caller reports that Watters stated, “Juan, I have to address some of the things you just said. Sara Carter, one of your colleagues here at Fox News, went down there. Actually you’re not there. She’s down there. She’s a colleague. Spoke to Guatemalan intelligence and interview people in the caravan and is confirmed there is MS-13 affiliated gang members among the caravan.”
“If you are going to sit there and call your colleague a liar while you are sitting on your tush in a nice air-conditioned studio in Manhattan, I really think that’s unbecoming. Second of all, you have not said — what are you going to do but the caravan, Juan? You have no plans to do anything about it. Have you had anything to add of substance to what to do with this 7,000 strong migration coming north? What are you going to do?” Watters questioned.
“Why don’t they fix the immigration system that is so badly broken in our country,” Williams quickly answered. “This is lowball politics and you are on message for President Trump, although today he said he has no proof.”

Take a look at the full segment below, but right around the 8:15 mark is the vital part of the clip.
Then there’s the fact that we know, without a doubt, that the caravan is carrying criminals. Those riding with the caravan even admitted it!

Juan Williams is playing the go-to Democrat card. He’s blaming everyone around him when things don’t go his way. It’s a classic page out of Hillary Clinton’s playbook. Hell, she’s still doing it two years after she lost the presidential election to Trump.
