Media Cheer: Trump ‘Reeling’ After ‘Big Setback’ to ‘Hardline’ Immigration Policy

<p>The NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows on Wednesday were grateful that a liberal federal judge sent the White House &ldquo;reeling&rdquo; after he handed President Trump &ldquo;another big setback&rdquo; to his &ldquo;hardline immigration policy.&rdquo; Rather than actually highlight the criminals who have evaded capture due to lax enforcement of immigration laws in left-wing sanctuary cities, the networks instead celebrated the ruling as a loss for the administration.</p>

<p>On NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em>, co-host Matt Lauer eagerly announced that <strong>&ldquo;plans to cut funding for so-called sanctuary cities&rdquo; had &ldquo;taken a big hit from a federal judge.&rdquo;</strong> Correspondent Kristen Welker scolded: <strong>&ldquo;President Trump is lashing out at the latest court to block him.&rdquo;</strong> After reading a tweet from the President attacking the &ldquo;ridiculous&rdquo; ruling, she smugly proclaimed: <strong>&ldquo;It is yet another controversy with that 100-day benchmark looming.&rdquo;</strong></p>
