First Lady Barbara Bush joked and laughed at the refugees
The former First Lady's remarks were aired this evening on National Public Radio's "Marketplace". She was part of a group including her husband and former President Bill Clinton, who were chosen by her son, the current president, to head fundraising efforts for the recovery. Sen. Hilary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama were also present.
"What I’m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas."
On the show, the first lady said, "What I’m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas." Then she added, "And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (little chuckle) is working very well for them." The first lady then went on to force a black man to drink her urine while she pistol whipped his wife and mocked them for losing their children.
Bill Clinton, after seeing the violence and abuse, said, "One hundred percent of the people recognize that -- that it was a failure to bring the former First Lady here. In an appropriate time we should analyze what went wrong and why and what changes should be made."
You do the math.
