Blast From The Past: James Woods Reminds Hillary That She Is NO Moral Authority

Hillary Clinton looked to follow in the steps of former First Lady Laura Bush in echoing her dissatisfaction ongoing illegal crossing and the separation of children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

As adults are continuing to illegally cross the border with children, they are being apprehended and are separated. The parents are arrested for the illegal crossing while the children are detained in holding areas until they are put into the care of the Health and Human Services Department.

Bush called the separations “cruel” and “immoral” while Trump said she “hates to see children separated from their families.”

In a series of tweets, Clinton said the border situation is a “humanitarian crisis” and that parents everywhere should be outraged.

“What’s happening to families at the border right now is a humanitarian crisis,” Clinton tweeted. “Every parent who has ever held a child in their arms, every human being with a sense of compassion and decency, should be outraged.”

Clinton then went after the Trump administration and said they are lying about the immigration law – saying no such law which inadvertently causes these separations exists.

“Despite what this White House claims, separating families is not mandated by law,” the Democrat said. “That is an outright lie, and it’s incumbent on all of us – journalists and citizens alike – to call it just that.”

And, “Those who selectively use the Bible to justify this cruelty are ignoring a central tenet of Christianity. Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little children unto me.’ He did not say ‘let the children suffer.’”

“We should be heartbroken to see families torn apart, but we should not be hopeless,” Clinton continued. “There’s something you can do right now to help.”

“The test of any nation is how we treat the most vulnerable among us. First Lady @LauraWBush made that case eloquently.”

“We should be a better country than one that tears families apart, turns a blind eye to women fleeing domestic violence, and treats frightened children as a means to a political end.”

“I still believe in the vision we share for our country. We will elect politicians and enact legislation to protect the most vulnerable among us – but first, we have to address the urgent needs of families at the center of this crisis.”

While the situation at the border is tragic, actor James Woods chimed in to remind Clinton she should not be the moral authority on the issue.

“Now do Haiti…” Woods said in response to Clinton.

Many people who replied to Woods agreed and criticized the Clinton Foundation and several others were also quick to remind Clinton of comments she made in a 2014 town hall meeting on the border issue:
