Michelle Obama Fact-Checked by Associated Press Over Kids and ‘Cages’ Remark

Surprising! Normally as a Democrat you really have to go off the rails to motivate a media organization to fact-check you.

“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,” AP fact-checkers said.

It noted that photos of children in housing centers that were circulated by Democratic officials online to criticize Trump were actually taken in 2014.

These pictures actually “depicted some of the thousands of unaccompanied children held by President Barack Obama,” AP said.

The “ripping migrant children from their parents and throwing them into cages” distortion was the most urgent issue in the world right up till the day everyone forgot about it, so why the AP is fact-checking it at this late date I do not know, but better late than never I guess . . .
