DECEPTION: Dems Use Obama Era Caged Photo in Attacking Trump

Slimy swamp dwelling House Democrats were once again caught tweeting out another egregious hoax — in an attempt to push their investigation into “inhumane treatment” at the border by using a 2014 Obama era photo of children in cages, before deleting the tweet Tuesday.

The Committee on Oversight and Reform playing fast and loose as usual with the truth attempted to pass off the Obama era photo during their upcoming Wednesday hearings titled “Kids in Cages: Inhumane Treatment at the Border.”

The announcement was meant to be for the inhumane treatment allegedly occurring under President Donald Trump. However, what the public got was an unintended visual glimpse of how the Obama Administration handled the border crisis during his own presidency at the time, involving children.

The apparent blunder by Democrats according to President Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign was deleted after the Dems either discovered their mistake or were caught red-handed attempting to pass off the photo as belonging to the Trump Administration. The photo was then quickly deleted.

After deleting both the tweet and the photo, the Oversight Committee put up a second tweet with a different photo. Astoundingly the second photo was also deleted after it was discovered that the photo was also from the Obama administration, according to the Associated Press.

However the damage had already been done after Democrats on Sunday began their smear campaign against the President beginning with Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa, former Los Angeles mayor now running for governor, referring in a tweet to photos showing young-looking immigrants in steel cages, “Speechless. This is not who we are as a nation.”

Ironically Jon Favreau, a speechwriter for President Obama also took to Twitter on Sunday referencing the photos with this doozy, “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.”

All the photos that appeared on various Democratic websites including those on social media referenced by Villaraigosa and Favreau were from 2014, during the Obama administration.

The photos either erroneously or with malice intent attempted to link President Trump’s immigration policy to them. Since the blunder and or malicious hoax was uncovered both  Villaraigosa, Favreau and some others had deleted their tweets.

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

CNN’s John King took time Tuesday to note that problems at the U.S. border did not start with President Donald Trump.

“This particular issue is not new,” King said. “This has been a problem the U.S. government has had to figure out a solution to for a long time.”

The CNN host then replayed an interview Obama did with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos warning migrant families not to send their children “unaccompanied” to the U.S.

Moreover, the recent dust-up regarding House Democrats visiting detention facilities and witnessing in some instances deplorable conditions, is the fault of a do nothing congress, that claimed several months before conditions disintegrated that what was taking place at the border was nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.”

Border agents have gone to Capitol Hill and testified under oath that they’re overwhelmed and needing additional manpower and additional financial resources to deal with the unprecedented upsurge of unaccompanied children at the border, only to be told that the crisis didn’t exist, until now.

    This is what happens when the media people do not pay attention to details as in the SLA shoot out with the LAPD. An unmarked police car pulled up with a case of .38 caliber ammunition marked Federal Fire Arms on it and was reporter promptly by the media that the Federal Government was now arming the LAPD. Fact check!

    The Federal Fire Arms Company is a ammunition manufacturer and is not part of the Government!
