Rick Santorum Claims Detention Centers Are Really “Summer Resorts For Kids”

CNN contributor, and former Republican Senator Rick Santorum, who has made a number of crazy and insane statements over the years, put his foot in his mouth once again during a recent appearance with Van Jones.

According to CNN, Santorum praised the president’s debate performance Thursday night despite his defense of child separation policy.

Speaking with Santorum after the debate, Jones said he was disgusted at the ‘lack of humanity” coming from the president when he said that immigrant children in cages, are “so well taken care of.”

“How can he say that?” Jones asked Santorum. “These kids are not well taken care of. They’re in cages for God sake!”

“Number one, we’re not keeping kids in cages anymore,” Santorum replied. “Number two, Trump said, ‘Who built the cages, Joe?’ “

“That doesn’t answer my question. I don’t care who built the cages. My concern is that they’re in the cages, now.”

“Like I said they’re not being kept in cages anymore. They’re not cages. They never were cages. Obama and Sleepy Joe built the cages, and when president Trump came along and saw the cruelty of the Obama administration, he liberated these poor kids, made sure the cages were destroyed and had luxury resorts built in their place, which include swimming pools, movie theaters, luxury apartments, shopping malls, schools, churches and everything else they might need to make them feel at home. All of this was well documented by Laura Ingraham not more than – what – two years ago on Fox News.”

Jones stared at him speechless. There was a moment of awkward silence.

“Sadly, there are those who actually believe that.”

He then reminded Santorum that Ingraham had been lambasted on social media for her lame analogy.

Santorum shrugged. “What do you want me to say, Van? It’s true.”

“It’s fake news.”

“CNN is fake news.”

Jones reminded him he was a contributor at the network.
