In an effort to paint President Trump as a monster, the House Democrats just indicted Barack Obama instead.
The Democrats tried to bash the President with a picture of children in cages except that the photo was from 2014 when Obama was President.
The New York Post reported that the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have deleted tweets that promoted an upcoming hearing on “kids in cages” on Wednesday afternoon after being called out for using Obama-era photos of immigrants in detention to highlight current conditions at the southern border.
“Last week, members of our committee visited a detention center at the southern border and discovered grotesque treatment of children,” read the first tweet, posted on Tuesday. “This week, we are examining the inhumane treatment of the children in these detention centers.”
But the tweet included a picture taken by the Associated Press in 2014, during the Obama administration, showing immigrants in detention in Arizona. President Trump’s campaign flagged the soon-deleted tweet and noted the photo comes from a time when current Democratic presidential primary front-runner Joe Biden was vice president.
“House Democrats are promoting their ‘civil rights’ hearing on ‘kids in cages’ and ‘inhumane treatment’ with a photo from 2014, when Joe Biden was Vice President,” the tweet read. “So dishonest!”
According to The Daily Caller, House Democrats then posted a new tweet with a different image — and again, it turns out, from the Obama years. That tweet was soon deleted as well, after it was noticed by their Republican counterparts on the committee.
“You all know that’s a picture from 2014, right? Remind us who was President then,” the tweet said.
