The Colorado and national media are working overtime to help reelect U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet by taking cheap potshots at Republican challenger Joe O’Dea.

Consider this headline … but only for a split second because it’s wrong and wouldn’t pass a Facebook fact check if Facebook actually knew how to fact check.

No migrant was “stranded” on Martha’s Vineyard. Just as no migrant was “stranded” by all those midnight flights by the Biden administration to drop them into other American cities in the dead of night when no one was looking.

The only difference in what Gov. DeSantis and Texas Gov. Abbott are doing, versus what the Biden administration does, is that of transparency.

The Republicans are doing it in broad daylight to bring attention to the problem. Democrats prefer to distribute millions of migrants across the country in the dead of night so no one will question why our Southern border has been wide open for nearly two years.

O’Dea appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday program and was asked by host and progressive stooge Chuck Todd if he was “comfortable with the idea of using migrants as a political tool.”

O’Dea’s response:

“I think Ron DeSantis and Governor Abbott were right to bring some visibility to this issue.”

That would be the issue of open borders, and millions of migrants pouring into this country and being stranded by the Biden administration in cities across the country that are not New York, Washington, D.C., or Martha’s Vineyard.

Todd interrupted to ask: “That’s the right way to do it, though?”

O’Dea continued: “We’ve got fentanyl killing our kids. People call what he did cruel. You know what’s cruel, is ignoring this issue. Democrats are ignoring it, doing nothing while our kids are dying.”

Todd’s defense was that Republicans aren’t interested in solving this problem, because he’s apparently gone blind, deaf and dumb and hasn’t listened to a damn word Republicans have said about the dangers, the inhumanity, the numerous problems caused by Democrats opening borders for nearly two years.

Then Todd tried to blame the border problem on Trump. The whole interview was just ridiculous, but O’Dea held his own and remained courteous and professional.
