Trump slams Dems after viral photo of children in cages, from Obama's term, 'backfire
 
:rofl2

The msm and lib zombies (even former Obama officials) have been spreading a pic around the internet world showing kids in cages and insinuating this is what's happening under the Trump admin as kids are bein' ripped away from their parents.

Only one prob...the pic is from the Obama admin.

Seriously, ya can't make this sh*t up.

Another msm lib agenda shot down in spectacular flames.

Trump slams Dems after viral photo of children in cages, from Obama's term, 'backfires'

President Trump on Tuesday slammed Democrats who shared pictures of child migrants sleeping in cages to knock his immigration policies, only to backtrack after realizing the photos were taken during the Obama administration.

“Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obama’s term showing children from the Border in steel cages,” Trump tweeted. “They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but backfires.”

One photo of children in a cell was shared numerous times over the weekend amid outrage over Trump administration policies of separating illegal immigrant parents from their children at the southern border.

Trump opponents who shared the photo included activists, journalists and former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau, who said: “This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible.”

However, that photo and other related images were published by The Arizona Republic in 2014, deep into Obama’s second term. Favreau later deleted the tweet, as did others who had used the pictures to blast the Trump administration.

On Tuesday, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told "Fox & Friends" that the backtrack suggests those critics were only interested in the photos as a partisan weapon.
"They didn't really care about the story about the migrant children," she said.

The photos were circulated amid a debate over the Justice Department’s zero-tolerance policy when it comes to arresting illegal immigrants. That policy refers all illegal border crossings for prosecution. Since children cannot be held in adult detention centers, they are often separated.

The Justice Department says the goal is to deter potential illegal immigrants from trying to cross the border, though critics say it is inhumane.

“If you cross the border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. It’s that simple,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said this month. “If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you. And that child may be separated from you, as required by law.”

On Tuesday, Trump also called for a “bipartisan bill” that would include funding for the wall at the southern border and “new Border Protection for good of country.”

It echoes a tweet Trump sent on Saturday where he called for Democrats to “end the horrible law that separated children from [their] parents once they cross the Border into the U.S.” and included demands for stricter immigration laws.

That's why you have to be careful what you share and believe on social media.

That's why you have to double check everything you see on the internet.

This latest President Trump bash stems from a SPLC study delayed over a year from the due date and finally released a few weeks ago with the actual date of the period studied buried on page 16.

Why liberals continue deliberately shooting themselves in the foot is beyond my comprehension.

Wait,
Jon Favreau isn't going to make a tweet condemning the Obama administration now that he knows the truth behind the picture?
Does his righteous indignation suddenly not matter?

I could care less about appearing intelligent
Evidently you feel the same way since you rarely read/watch videos that I post before you reply
