Fox Host Bret Baier Tells Sen. Krysten Sinema Border Bill Is ‘Painful To Get Through’ After She Said She Co-Wrote It


Fox News host Bret Baier told Arizona Independent Sen. Krysten Sinema on Monday that the recent border bill was “painful to get through,” after she stated that she was a co-author. 

Sinema appeared on “Special Report with Bret Baier” to discuss the new $118 billion Senate border security bill, called the Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act. The bill’s text was released Sunday night, and Republican lawmakers immediately criticized the deal. GOP House Speaker Mike Johnson said the bill would be “dead on arrival” in the House if it passes in the Senate.

After discussing her support for the deal, Baier asked Sinema if she had “read the whole thing.” The Arizona senator replied that she had not only read it but had it “close to memorized.”

“I have read this bill and, Senator, have you read the whole thing?” Baier questioned. 

“Well, I got to tell you, Bret, I wrote it. So, yes, I have. In fact, I’ve got it pretty close to memorized,” Sinema stated.  

Baier told Sinema that the bill had been “painful to get through,” and the Arizona senator laughed in agreement.
