In response to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claiming this week after touring a detention center that women were made to “drink from the toilet,” the New York Post published an editorial calling out her theatrics, which included this:
AOC has a great gift for theater, as in her claim that detained women are forced to drink from toilets — which apparently refers to standard plumbing units for these facilities, which hold both a sink and toilet.
AOC and other Dems have been claiming people held at the detention centers have been forced to “drink from the toilet,” but the border patrol had a different explanation:
“This is what happened with the migrant & drinking water from toilet. She wanted water. Didn’t know how to use the faucet in the cell and drank from the toilet … This was when she [the migrant] was apprehended and brought into the facility,” a Border Patrol agent wrote.

But no explanation was about to keep Rep. Adam Schiff from taking the Dem talking points and running with them in response to a tweet from President Trump defending border patrol officers:
No showers. Standing room only cells. Children taking care of babies. Officers instructing migrants to drink toilet water.
Trump has no plan to fix this, and no desire to do so.
The cruelty is the point. https://t.co/e0ME5uOzDX

However, anything being said by the congressman who pushed the Trump/Russia collusion story for almost three years should of course be viewed with the appropriate skepticism.
What happened to the Trump Russia Collusion evidence you had in your possession???

Schiff (and other Dems) appear to be pivoting to fresh talking points. Big surprise:
Wait, we’re not doing the whole Russian collusion thing anymore? We really need to sort out our email servers, I’m not getting the new narrative memos.

Schiiff you’re full of it. The toilet water lie is just as false as the “collusion” lie you pushed for 2 years. ?

Still waiting on your “plain as day” Russians collusion evidence you claimed you had…

Why are you still pushing this lie? It was disproved almost immediately.

Yeah sure, and we're all still waiting for that evidence of Russian collusion ??
— @JoMichigan (@JoMichigan1) July 4, 2019
