<p>In a hostile exchange with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on ABC&rsquo;s <em>Good Morning America</em> on Friday, substitute co-host Amy Robach first demanded that the Justice Department chief respond to a local Democratic politician in New York accusing him of being anti-immigrant and then put words his mouth to make it seem like the smear was true.</p>

<p>After noting that Sessions would be &ldquo;going to Long Island today to speak about violent crime and gangs,&rdquo; Robach touted how he would be &ldquo;greeted&rdquo; by &ldquo;some protesters&rdquo; and seized on a nasty statement from an obscure local official: <strong>&ldquo;Assemblyman Phil Ramos says that the issues around gangs are complex and that making this a part of the debate about immigration, quote, makes &ndash; &lsquo;this is an attempt by the Trump administration and Mr. Sessions to justify their belief and their message that immigrants, and young immigrants, are people who intrinsically have a propensity for violence.&rsquo; What&rsquo;s your response to that?&rdquo;</strong></p>
