One of the more amusing happenings in the past few weeks was the left raging over a sickening photo of illegal immigrant kiddos in cages. They we’re quick to direct their vitriol toward the Orange One, only to find out the photo was from 2014. You know, the era of “hope and change.”
Now, a Democrat congressman from Texas is admitting Barry’s administration was separating kiddos and doing their best to keep it under the radar:
Democratic Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar admitted Saturday that the Obama administration attempted to cover up the child migrant crisis occurring at the Southern border.
“It was kept very quiet under the Obama Administration. There were large numbers of people coming in. The Obama administration was trying to keep this quiet,” Cuellar told CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield.
Whitfield displayed a 2014 image of migrant children held in cages at a detention center, and Cuellar said that he released similar photos of children separated from their parents.
Cuellar added that the number of children being held at the border right now is similar to the amount during the Obama administration.
“We still see the numbers,” he said, adding that “not all of them are being separated. Some of them are coming alone.”
Yep, those lefties want to believe Trump came up with the idea of separating kiddos from their familias and locking them in cages. You know, because he’s a big meanypants who thinks anyone born south of the border is an animal. Except, as this congressman points out, this situation was in full swing under the benevolent King Obama.
Now, the only question is how long until the left changes the subject.
The left would like very much for this to be a gotcha moment against the Donald. No such luck. As the facts roll out, it’s becoming clear Trump is doing nothing that hasn’t been done before. Whether separating kiddos is good policy or not is debatable. Though, the left can no longer pretend this is anything other than business as usual.
