News anchor Rachel Maddow, breaks down in tears as she tries to read her lede on the heartbreaking issue of "tender age" shelters.
Her delivery to her viewers on Donald Trump's contentious immigration crackdown was cut short due to the heart wrenching details of his policy as well as the images that are now circling the globe. Maddow tries to fight back her tears, but to no avail her emotions took over her.
How can someone introduce such a story and not have some hurt in their voice? I have been trying to follow as much as I can and it is so sad that it has me almost in tears.
Hearing these young kids cry out for their mother, father, aunts, and siblings is agonizing and tragic. Putting these innocent kids in cages like animals or violent criminals is borderline savage to do.
After handing off the segment to a fellow anchor Lawrence O’Donnell, Maddow took to Twitter where she apologized for not being able to continue. She went on to say that it is part of her job to be able to read such things and report to the viewers, but that it was somewhat unbearable.
There are many non-profit organizations trying to fight against Trump's madness and help these poor little kids who did nothing to deserve this.
