White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre described the despicable actions of Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott as acting like human kidnapping smugglers by lying to migrants and then shipping them off to places that the local governments had no idea were coming all in an effort to create a political stunt at the expense of actual human beings.

Jean-Pierre opened up her briefing by singling out the destructive antiabortion legislation being proposed and implemented by Republicans.

Soon after she turned to the scum from Florida and Texas Gov.

"Yesterday two republican governors lured one hundred asylum seekers, including children onto planes and buses with false premises and then abandoned them on the side of a busy road thousands of miles away with nothing! With nothing but zip-lock bags of their belongings in hand, " she said.

"What did governor Abbott and Governor DeSantis do? They used them as political pawns. Treated then like chattel in a cruel, premeditated political stunt."

Why did DeSantis lie to the migrants, charter a flight from Texas, not his home state, hire a film crew to record the flight and not tell Massachusetts migrant children were coming there?

"These are the kinds of tactics we see from smugglers in places like Mexico and Guatemala and for what? A photo-op? Because these governors care about creating political theater than creating actual solutions to help folks who are fleeing communism - to help children - to help families, instead they want to do political stunts," Jean-Pierre said.

These two governors should face criminal charges.
