Actress and former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell has pledged to donate and match proceeds from artwork she sells on Etsy to non-profits helping immigrant children on the border, Breitbart News reported. O’Donnell has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump’s border policies.
What O’Donnell seems to be ignoring is the fact that the Trump policies with which she disagrees–calling the detention centers concentration camps–originated with former President Barack Obama. O’Donnell never criticized Obama for the camps or for his policies that are still in effect on the border.
How much money did O’Donnell donate to immigrant aid on the border when Obama was president? How many times did she accuse Obama of running concentration camps there?
It’s really sad when liberals use charities to self-righteously but ignorantly attempt to bolster their political allies and slam their opponents. It’s even sadder when they express selective outrage about their opponents’ supposed wrongs while ignoring the very same behavior from politicians they like.
While the voting public may not be informed enough to catch all the nuances that go into particular viewpoints, they have become fairly good at smelling the stink of such blatant hypocrisy from miles away.
