Furious ‘Murphy Brown’ to ICE in Thanksgiving episode: ‘I will spatchcock you’

[Ed. – The story line sounds like it’s kind of supposed to be about family, friends, and kindness — but, of course, it’s not.  All politics, all the time.]

The Thanksgiving episode of CBS’s Murphy Brown even included a threat of physical violence to ICE agents and when that didn’t work, verbal intimidation was used.

When bar and grille owner Phyllis and her helper Miguel (a DACA student worker) show up with the liquor, Miguel tells Murphy he can’t stay for dinner because he is going to help his parents on their food truck. Murphy insists they come to dinner, too, since a winter storm is moving in and they will have no customers. …

The storm causes the electrical power to go out in Murphy’s home so they all head out to the food truck to finish cooking the meal. That is when two ICE agents show up. A neighbor complained about a food truck on the street and when the license plate was run because of a broken tail light, the police discovered that there was an outstanding order of removal for Miguel’s parents, Carlos and Maria. As this is happening, Avery asks Pat (Nik Dodani) to film it on his camera while he provides narration. Needless to say, Murphy isn’t having it. She threatens the ICE agents and then uses intimidation.
