A spokesperson for the DHS put out a statement this morning regarding an incident that happened last night at a Mexican restaurant in D.C. involving Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. The statement read:
While having a work dinner tonight, the Secretary and her staff heard from a small group of protesters who share her concern with our current immigration laws that have created a crisis on our southern border.
If by “heard from” they meant Nielsen tried to bury her head in her frijoles while people shouted, ‘Shame! Shame! Shame!’ then sure, she “heard” from protesters.

When it comes to this administration, lying has become the norm, but today’s technology allows people to record events so we can see and hear the truth. The following video, which the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America posted to Facebook, showed the so-called “meeting with protesters.”
You can see for yourself it was hardly a meeting at all.
People are no longer buying blatant lies and PR spin.
LIAR. Apparently you didn't realize there was video of a restaurant full of people screaming, “Shame Shame Shame!!” at @SecNielsen for her lies about and enforcement of Trump's barbaric policy of kidnapping & torturing migrant children and babies.#Maddowpic.twitter.com/dOJuR6Nkdy

This is some impressive double speak, Tyler. Tell me, how do you sleep at night?

Kirstjen Nielsen, you're a villian, locking up immigrant children …
Shouted at @SecNielsen while she ate in a DC Mexican restaurant this evening.
Decent Americans will not let you have peace as you keep children in cages as hostages for Trump's wall pic.twitter.com/78fzhh8ToM

People couldn’t believe Neilsen chose to eat at a Mexican restaurant after defending locking up children fleeing Mexico and Central America.
Ivanka tweets a picture of herself cuddling her child the day news breaks about child detainment centers, Kirstjen Neilson dines our at a Mexican restaurant the same day she straight up lied about the theft of children. The women working for trump really flaunt their evil.
