Hannity is about to air his interview from the border with Trump. Follow me for a video thread.
Hannity hypes completely decontextualized crime stats to smear undocumented immigrants as violent criminals.

(They in fact commit crimes at lesser rates than native-born Americans.)
Hannity almost refers to Trump as "President Bush," but catches himself
Hannity, taking a page out of Trump's playbook, uses crime victims to demonize undocumented immigrants
Trump, w/CBP agents around him, tells Hannity, "They have a tremendous amount of drugs they just captured right behind us."

"We built a lot of wall," Trump says, falsely. "It's not a $ thing. It's a political thing. They look at the 2020 race & aren't feeling too good about it."
Trump says "the real collusion" is "the fake news" and Democrats both calling the situation at the border "a manufactured crisis"
TRUMP: "Many of the people that aren't getting their checks -- they are with us 100 percent. They want us to win this battle. These people want us to win. Everybody wants us to win this battle. It's common sense. Death is pouring through."
In single clip, Trump:

1. Lies about "new" Dems saying "we can't win this battle with Trump"
2. Threatens to declare nat'l emergency if he can't strike deal w/Congress
3. Says: "You know what works? A wheel & a wall"
3. Offers disturbingly graphic description of a kidnapping
TRUMP: "I don't need this. Look, I could've done something a lot easier. I could have enjoyed myself. I haven't left the WH b/c I'm waiting for them to come over in a long time. I stayed home for Christmas. I stayed in the WH for New Year's...I consider it very important."
Trump concludes by hinting shutdown could go on for long time

"We are not changing our mind," he says

Hannity reminds him that "I know you're thinking about furloughed employees" (lol)

The two wrap it up by asking Border Patrol agents if they support the wall. They say they do
Trump uses Border Patrol agents as props during Fox News interview…
