EMILY COMPAGNO (GUEST HOST): I don't understand why Pelosi and Schumer threw around comments today, just today, for example, in their response, saying the words "tragic" and "collateral damage" talking about the furlough, when that's a disingenuous comment when our federal employees are being assaulted and murdered at the border.
