MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough invoked Jesus Christ to attack the Trump administration for at least two children unfortunately passing away this year.
During his off-the-walls segment, Scarborough made it seem like the children passed away because of the American government, but failed to place any blame on the parents, who forced the children to travel on foot from Central America to Mexico, which is anywhere from 1,800 to 3,000 miles.
After belittling the American government for the bad decisions of parents forcing children to travel thousands of miles, Scarborough then turned Biblical and asks “what would Jesus do.”
His comments undoubtedly appeared to be shaming people of faith, depending on their opinion of the border situation, of course.
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough invokes "what would Jesus do?" as a way of trying to get Christians to pressure Trump on immigration, says: "Let the little children come? Not even close"

One boy who passed away had crossed the border illegally with his father. The boy was treated, given prescriptions, and then assessed again. The boy’s father refused extra medical assistance that was offered.
As stated on BBC:
“While being evaluated for release, he was found to have a fever of 103F (39.4C) and held for more observation. He was released shortly afterwards with a prescription for an antibiotic and ibuprofen.
The boy and his father were taken to a temporary site at the Highway 70 checkpoint, where the child received the medication. Two hours later, he vomited.
His father declined further medical assistance, the CBP said, as the child had been feeling better.
The child appeared lethargic at around 22:00, when he was sent back to the hospital. While being transported, the boy vomited and lost consciousness, and doctors at the hospital were unable to revive him.
