Michelle Obama Gets Fact Checked Over Issue 'Democrats Have Persistently Distorted'

Excerpt:

Former First Lady Michelle Obama served as the keynote speaker for the DNC Convention Monday night, successfully fulfilling the role of making false accusations and statements about President Trump's record.

On illegal immigration, Mrs. Obama lamented "putting kids in cages" as she claimed President Trump has no empathy.

*snip*

But the facts and her husband's history as president tell a different story. It was the Obama administration that first instituted the policy of separating children from adults at the border. President Obama was the first to "put kids in cages."

Her statement on the issue was so misleading, it landed her a fact-check from the Associated Press.

What she did not say is that the very same “cages” were built and used in her husband's administration, for the same purpose of holding migrant kids temporarily.

A look at her remark in the keynote address at the opening night of the remote Democratic National Convention:

MICHELLE OBAMA, on Americans: “They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages."

THE FACTS: The reference to cages is misleading and a matter that Democrats have persistently distorted.

Trump used facilities that were built during the Obama-Biden administration to house children at the border. They are chain-link enclosures inside border facilities where migrants were temporarily housed, separated by sex and age.

At the height of the controversy over Trump’s zero-tolerance policy at the border, photos that circulated online of children in the enclosures generated great anger. But those photos — by The Associated Press — were taken in 2014 and depicted some of the thousands of unaccompanied children held by President Barack Obama.

When that fact came to light, some Democrats and activists who had tweeted the photos deleted their tweets. But prominent Democrats have continued to cite cages for children as a distinctive cruelty of Trump.

In fact, Townhall reported on the Obama administration's actions in 2014.

Her words reek of democrat desperation.  Although just as with her "husband" they might be setting her up for the future allowing her to give speech.  If that is so they know they are doomed currently

I tried to watch Moochie's stump speech. Couldn't get to the end. What a putrid bag of hammers. She made in certain and very direct terms that domestic terrorism will go up should voters reelect PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump. Nor did she mention the  17 year-old "defund the police" advocate who was found dead with a bullet in his brain on a street corner of her hometown of  Chicago in the early morning hours. Mooch went on to say such violence is Trump's fault because Covid-1984. Granted, her outlook on life might be different if she had married man.
