Illegal immigrants are crossing the border not because President Joe Biden is a "moral, decent man," as PBS journalist Yamiche Acindor suggested, but because he is an "idiot," conservative radio host Mark Levin said Thursday.
“The perception of you that got you elected as a moral, decent man is the reason why a lot of immigrants are coming to this country and entrusting you with unaccompanied minors," Acindor told Biden.
"No, they're not coming because you're the nice guy. They're coming because you're an idiot," Levin responded. "You've said that they should come and they know that you don't mean it when you tell them not to come....Then you lie about President Trump allowing little kids to die on the border."
Here is a transcript of the segment below:
Mark Levin: Let's play cut 8, go.
Yamiche Acindor: You've said over and over again that immigrants shouldn't come to this country right now. This isn't the time to come. That message is not being received. Instead, the perception of you that got you elected as a moral, decent man is the reason why a lot of immigrants are coming to this country and entrusting you with unaccompanied minors. How do you resolve that tension?
Levin: So she's speaking for all the illegal aliens who are coming and trying to come into the country. "You're a moral and decent man. How can you allow this sort of thing to occur, Mr. President? I mean, after all, we at PBS --" go ahead.
Acindor: How are you choosing which families can stay, which can go, given the fact that even though with Title 42, there are some families that are staying? And is there a timeline for when we won't be seeing these overcrowded facilities run by CBP when it comes to unaccompanied minors?
Biden: Well, look, I guess I should be flattered. People are coming because I'm the nice guy. That's the reason why it's happening.
Levin: No, they're not coming because you're the nice guy. They're coming because you're an idiot. You're an idiot. Another way to put it, Joe, is a moron. You've said that they should come and they know that you don't mean it when you tell them not to come. Then you lie about the statistics involving President Trump. Then you lie about President Trump allowing little kids to die on the border. You say the most heinous things because you're an idiot, but you've always been an idiot. Now you're a bigger idiot than you were before. You know, people say he doesn't have two brain cells to rub together. He never had two brain cells to rub together. So he's declined from a declining base over the years. Let's see here, let's go to cut nine. Go ahead.
Biden: If you take a look at the number of people who are coming, the vast majority, the overwhelming majority of people coming to the border and crossing are being sent back.
Levin: Well, wait a minute: 25,000 or so were sent into the interior of the country over the last four weeks. So the issue isn't whether the majority are being sent back; the issue is whether they're all being sent back. The vast majority of them, they tell us, are over 18, so why are 25,000 of them being released into the interior of the United States, including with all kinds of communicable diseases, including COVID-19? Go ahead.
Biden: Sent back thousands, tens of thousands of people who are— who are over 18 years of age and single people, one at a time coming, have been sent back, sent home.
Levin: So there's no crisis. There's no overcrowding and this idiot is building facilities for the overcrowding and the crisis. The United States military has had to lend at least one of its bases and maybe more. He's very excited about -- "but look at all the beds we have in these" -- these are military bases, idiot. They're not for immigrants. Go ahead.
Biden: Sending back the vast majority of the families that are coming. We're trying to work out now with Mexico their willingness to take more of those families back.
Levin: You didn't have to do that, you know. Before you came into the office, they were already doing that. You do understand that.
