Caged Migrant Children Photo Goes Viral As Left Rages At Trump; Except It Happened Under Obama

A photograph of two migrant children sleeping in a cage at an ICE detention facility quickly went viral on Sunday after several prominent liberals tweeted it in a white-hot rage at President Trump's immigration policy.

After a laundry list of journalists and public figures angrily tweeted the photo - including CNN's Hadas Gold, NYT Mag's editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein, Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau and former LA mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, they deleted their tweets in shame when it emerged that the photo was taken in 2014, under Obama

Indeed - nobody thought to check the date on the attached article, published in June of 2014. 

The award for the lamest excuse goes to CNN's Hadas Gold, who wrote "Deleted previous tweet because gave impression of recent photos (they're from 2014)"

Sorry Hadas. The internet never forgets: 

Jake Silverstein, editor-in-chief of NYT Magazine, threw his family under the bus for "distracting" him.

Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau cranked up the virtue-signaling up to eleven, tweeting "Look at these pictures. 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.

Aaand it's gone - but not forgotten: 

Then there's Women's March co-founder Linda Sarsour:

Former LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa also had egg on his face after tweeting "Speechless. This is not who we are as a nation." 

As Caleb Hull - Senior Editor of The IJR and others pointed out, many of those who tweeted the picture on Sunday were awfully silent when it actually happened under Obama.

Of course, then there was the inevitable...

Cages are good.

When will we be able to see Obama and his whole insidious cabal in cages?

Because certain animals do belong in zoos, no matter what your feelings are about their rights. Even vermin like the aforementioned.

Zoos are tailored to the animals they incarcerate, and fortunately there are quite a few applicable that have the necessary "humanitarian" requirements for Obumfuck&Friends.

They are called Federal Penitentiaries.

"Laugh Track Deafening !!!!"

The name of the game is "trigger the imbecilic morons".

Morons so imbecillic after "passing through" an education system destroyed 30 years ago that instills them with zero analytical thinking skills or life skills and filled their heads with socialist propaganda.

Obama! The shit master!

I had a shirt on the other day with the symbol for pi on it, and a recent high school graduate asked me what it meant.  Their two 17-yr old friends standing next to them didn't know what it meant either.  One of them was actually in AP classes.  I just laughed, and told them we should burn down the schools, and make all millennials factory child labor.
