Asked about her husband’s inhumane policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the American border, she was also taped saying: “Give me a f***ing break.”
She did not know she was being taped by a friend who later turned against her. The recordings were obtained by CNN, which broke the story, and then circulated them widely on Twitter.
