OUCH! Liberals Look To Swipe Trump, But End Up Suplexing Obama Hard Over Immigration

Water is wet, bears live in the woods, and liberals hate Trump; some things never change.

The last of those was on full display when several members of the Left took to social media to score some political points on President Trump – or so they thought.

As Twitchy reports, a former staffer to President Obama, Jon Favreau, led the charge by sharing truly tragic photos of immigrant minors being detained in prison-like cells:

Ex-Obama staffer Jon Favreau, in a now-deleted tweet, linked to an AZCentral.com article title, “First glimpse of immigrant children at holding facility” and said “This is happening right now, and the only debat that matter is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible.”

His obvious intent was to slam the Trump administration for its treatment of unaccompanied minors taken into custody at the border:

The photos however dated back to 2014, well under the policies of his former boss.

Fox News similarly reported the story:

A former Obama administration official, liberal activists and journalists incorrectly shared pictures of children sleeping in enclosed cages from 2014 to take a swipe at the Trump administration and its zero-tolerance policy towards parents and children crossing the border illegally.

It turns out the photographs were published by The Arizona Republic in 2014 after the authorities detained over 1,000 children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally and placed them in a detention facility. The Daily Calller first reported on the error.

But Favreau was not alone, several more liberals and media personalities like Linda Sansour and Shaun King looked to swipe Trump over the pics —

As Twitchy reports, tweets by Kate Hinds and Jake Silverstein were posted then quickly deleted:

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, a frequent Trump critic, simply replied to the photos: “dear god.”

CNN reporter Hadas Gold too deleted her tweet, clarifying that the photos were taken several years ago.

Many people commented on her tweet and some of the above tweets and asked if they cared any less for the photos knowing they occurred under Obama:
