Many liberals have been furious in recent days over President Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries for 90 days.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is perhaps the most prominent dissenter — he even pretended to cry when talking about Trump’s order — but New York Rep. Nydia Velazquez, a Democrat, gave Schumer a run for his money with her public reaction.
Hameed Darweesh, an Iraqi interpreter who was temporarily detained at New York’s JFK International Airport, talked to reporters after he was released. He lavished praise upon the U.S. and talked about how he actually liked Trump.
During his interview, Velazquez was busy crying (or at least pretending to cry), nodding along and otherwise trying to show how emotionally traumatic this whole ordeal was for her.
When Darweesh stated that “America is the greatest country in the world,” all of a sudden Darweesh’s crocodile tears were replaced with a look of horror, and she quickly shook her head back and forth.
So here we have a liberal politician disagreeing when a refugee says America is the greatest nation in the world. That’s pretty screwed up.
When someone asked Darweesh what he thought of Trump, Velazquez quickly looked at him and shook her head “no,” as if trying to signal that he should say something mean about the president. Instead, he said he liked Trump, causing Velazquez to get another pained look on her face, as if somehow Darweesh respecting the president of the United States had just caused her great personal injury.
After that, Velazquez continued to sniff heartily throughout his interview and dabbed her eyes a few times just for good effect. You can watch the Oscar-worthy performance here:

I bet when Velazquez positioned herself where the cameras could pick up every gleaming tear, she never thought they would also pick up her horror at hearing someone talk about how much he liked America and Trump.
Maybe next time Velazquez will think twice before trying to shed a few tears in the hope of making a name for herself.
