I don’t believe it’s an accident that the face of these horrific detentions has been overwhelmingly female
There’s so much to be angry and terrified about this week, it’s hard to know where to start. What’s struck me, though, is that in the midst of the crimes this administration is committing against children, they’re being quite strategic about who they’re sending out to defend themselves.
Sarah Sanders. Kirstjen Nielsen. Ivanka. Melania. White women have been trotted out to explain why children were stolen from their parents and forcibly detained like prisoners – or to applaud Trump’s phony executive order, or to feign giving a shit while quite literally stating they “really don’t care”.
