Marsha Blackburn, (R-Tennessee) created a new QAnon-type conspiracy against migrants.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott put migrants on buses to East Coast cities as a political stunt.

These migrants have already been much maligned, but one of the dimmest bulbs in Congress got her jollies by fearmongering over brown people. Because she can.

F&F's Steve Doocy started the interview by saying some reports show that migrants want to be in the city of Chattanooga.

So, of course, that means Mexican cartels are behind it all.

"What we have heard is they are threatening the drivers," Blackburn said, but offered no proof.

I have not seen any reporting that the undocumented are threatening drivers to get off the buses.

Blackburn continued lying. "They are wanting to get where their friends are."

Did you know that these migrants traveling thousands of miles to get to the Texas border have some sort of a network of communication that does not require Wi-Fi or the Internet that allows them to communicate so they can take over cities like Chattanooga?

"They look at this Steve, as safe passage, if you will, across the country, because they are being given a free bus ride to wherever they want to go," Blackburn lied.

"Many times these young men want to get off the bus and find somewhere close, and then they'll fly on or drive on to where they want to get to," she said.

She's just a horrible human being.

Most of these migrants probably don't speak or understand English and were rounded up and put on these buses being sent to Washington DC and New York City by the Republican Governor of Texas.

To Blackburn, these young men are then turning into sex traffickers and worse by the cartels. And these young migrant men suddenly have passports and can afford plane tickets to wherever they want to go to join predatory gangs around the country?

Where has all this nonsense come from?

One of the stopovers for these charter buses for drivers to rest is in Chattanooga.

ABC News 9 reported on August 12, "The nationwide immigration controversy hit home Friday with buses of immigrants showing up at at least one hotel in the Chattanooga area."

An officer on the scene tells our crew that the busses were taking immigrants to Washington, D.C., and New York, and that they stopped in Chattanooga so the drivers could get some rest.

Fox News then decided to fearmonger over these people even more. "Tennessee McDonald’s employee calls police after migrants begin panhandling during stop on way to East Coast"

A Tennessee McDonald’s employee said she called police after a bus of migrants headed to the East Coast from Texas pulled into a Chattanooga neighborhood for a pit stop, and some migrants began panhandling.

"I had to get the police to remove them from the premises, which they turn and started sitting over at the gas station. After that, we haven't seen them for a while," McDonald’s employee Nyree Jones told WTVC.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is using migrants as a photo-op and an 'own the libs' operation by putting migrants seeking asylum on buses and sending them to East Coast cities.

Marsha Blackburn is using these souls to add another chapter of the White Replacement theory.

And the endgame is to distract the Fox audience from Trump's crimes in a cynical attempt to preserve a midterm win for Republicans. Disgusting.
