U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right now

U.S. State Dept. hosts 'Family Travel Hacks' Facebook Live as if that's a totally fine thing to do right nowIn times of crisis, one would hope the U.S. Department of State would know how to respond accordingly. Sadly, not this time. On Tuesday, rather than showing any compassion for the nearly 2,000 children who have been separated from their parents at the border due to the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, the State Department decided to hold a fun Facebook Live. The almost 50-minute-long “Family Travel Hacks” Q&A encouraged people to ask about “applying for U.S. passports for kids, document requirements, and tips to make sure your vacation this summer goes smoothly.” Though, predictably, many used the opportunity to share their upset at the fact that families are being separated at the border.

Here are just some of the many comments from angry and appalled people watching the live stream, wondering how the U.S. State Department could be so upbeat and tone deaf at a time like this. Needless to say, people were NOT pleased with the timing of this Facebook Live.  If you too, are tired of the lack of action being taken to to help families at the border, check out our guide on how to help.

Fox News' Neil Cavuto Hosts 17 Hours Of Live TV A Week Despite Physical Challenges

Neil Cavuto is a relatively calm Fox News personality. He’s a Wall Street conservative less prone to shouting than musing, a host given to letting his guests have their say. He hosts more hours of cable news than anyone else at the big three news cable channels: 17 hours of live shows a week. And he does that despite having multiple sclerosis, which prevents him from doing so much as reading from a teleprompter.
