Kirsters Baish| It doesn’t seem that the Democrats did much fact-checking while Barack Obama was in office. The liberally-run mainstream media didn’t have any interest in investigating anything. Liberal America who blindly followed suit was clearly oblivious. They seemed to love Obama and everything he did, no matter what that was. It seems that they were all too willing to overlook the fact that Obama threw immigrant children into “cages.” Instead, they pointed the finger at President Trump.
Diamond and Silk explain that liberals also “totally missed the tear gas his Border Patrol deployed at the border. They missed Benghazi. They missed Fast and Furious. They missed all the scandals. In fact, liberals even have the audacity to claim to this day that Obama’s administration was ‘scandal free.’”
During Obama’s time in office, we saw a lot of bad things happen, and liberals continue to try and justify these horrible occurrences today.
This week on ABC’s “The View,” the women on the panel didn’t have an easy time dealing with the fact that Obama is also to blame for a lot of the things they’re complaining that Trump is doing.
From Conservative Tribune:
The segment began with a skeptical co-host Whoopi Goldberg referencing a National Review article that criticized the lack of media coverage of Obama’s use of tear gas at the border to repel illegal immigrants.
An equally skeptical co-host Joy Behar asked, “Is there evidence of that?” She then referenced the viral photo of a woman and two children caught in the middle of the chaotic situation on Sunday, and asked, “Do they have a photo like that from when Obama was in office?”
It just got worse from there. The liberal women on the panel of hosts had to deal with the fact that Obama had separated families at the border, thrown children into holding “cages,” and literally gave children to human traffickers.
Co-host Sunny Hostin wasn’t having it, and snapped on camera, admitting what we all already knew.
Liberals don’t care that Obama did horrible things.
However, she then proceeded to reference a little-reported criminal incident from 2014 in which Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services had handed over a number of “unaccompanied children” to human traffickers who then enslaved those children on farms in Ohio.
That was simply too much to bear for liberal co-host Sonny Hostin, who said, “President Obama is no longer in office. President Trump is in office, and he’s destroying the country, and this ‘but Obama’ defense doesn’t work for me.”
“That’s not to say using tear gas — I think it’s immoral using tear gas against children — but ProPublica just found that the Trump administration has secretly continued to separate kids from their families,” she continued. “The Obama administration never did that.” (Except that the Obama administration did do that, as did the Bush and Clinton administrations.)
“The ACLU says that kind of separation is unprecedented, so this whole ‘but Obama did it, but Obama did it’ … I don’t care what Obama did! I care what Trump is doing right here, right now,” Hostin added.
