Michelle Obama made a serious blunder in her convention speech on Monday night when she pulled out the old, tired and inaccurate accusation that President Donald Trump put children in cages when his Border Patrol agents had to separate them from their illegal immigrant parents who were caught trying to get across the border.
The Associated Press fact-checked that portion of her speech, noting that “the reference to cages is misleading and a matter that Democrats have persistently distorted.”
The photos used to illustrate Trump’s policy of separating families and detaining children were actually from the Obama era in 2014, the AP pointed out, not during Trump’s presidency.
Breitbart pointed out that Trump quietly changed regulations so that unaccompanied children are prevented from getting across the border almost entirely now, which has largely solved the detainment of children at the border.
Obama’s speech is just more evidence that Democrats are living in an alternate reality that has nothing to do with what is really going on in the world.
