The tragic loss of 20-year-old Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts shocked and saddened the nation, but some liberals seem to not understand why conservatives and others are still speaking about it.
A person who was in the country illegally took a precious life, ruined a family, wrecked a community, and brought a nation to mourning. But, liberal pundit and political science professor Dr. Christina Greer doesn’t understand why Fox News and its viewers are “talking about a girl in Iowa.”
The professor instead inferred more people should be talking about the guilty verdicts of Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort and what they could mean for President Trump.
“I dont’ think that today changes much, unfortunately,” Greer said about the guilty pleas. “I am sure we will hear more about what he has to say at his rally but Fox News is talking about – you know – some girl in Iowa and not this.”
Greer diminishing the importance of Tibbett’s loss is an insult to her family and supporters across the nation and stands opposed to those who fight tirelessly to enforce immigration laws to avoid situations like this.
Yes, WE GET that the Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen stories are big news and could potentially damage the GOP and the Trump presidency itself. WE’RE NOT discounting that.
But here’s political science professor Dr. Christina Greer totally dismissing Fox News’ coverage of murdered Iowa college student Mollie Tibbets, who to her is just “a girl in Iowa,” instead of the Trump news.
Republicans “have been so willing to move the goal post” for Trump

The story of Tibbetts and others like her are injustices that tear into the very fabric which holds America. Many people online said Greer and others who do not understand this should get a clue:
“A college girl brutally killed by an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT and your guest refers to her as ‘some girl in Iowa?'” one user asked. “You should have stopped her and apologized for her unsympathetic remark.”
@FordhamNYC you hire people like this that pass off a murdered female who is a college aged student herself as “some girl in Iowa?” Disappointed and disgusted you have people like this on your staff, but even more disappointed as I know you’ll sit on your hands and do nothing…

Hey, idiot, are you going to comment on the “some girl from Iowa” quote? Absolutely truly distasteful and horrible.

Molly Tibbetts. Molly Tibbetts was more than just “a girl in Iowa!” Instead of your political BS taking front and center, slow down and have some compassion for the loss of a young soul. May you never be graced with children if this is how you think – politics first. Horrible.

There was a moment during that rant where @AriMelber should have spoken up and corrected his ignorant guest. But he didn’t.

This “girl in Iowa” – Mollie Tibbetts, btw – just happens be part of a HUGE news story that’s been affecting everyone for months: The Immigration Debate. Surely you’ve heard of it?
Maybe step out of your aura of Trump hatred for a sec and realize there are many big pictures.

Trump Derangement Syndrome seems to have no end and, unfortunately, it is blinding people from valuing other issues.
