House Dems Busted Using Obama Era Photos To Bash Trump For ‘Kids In Cages’ Hearing

The Democrats continue on their path to electoral oblivion with no end in sight. They are truly bad at the game of politics.

They pick dumb battles, like reparations and busing, and then double down when caught. It’s as if panic and polls drive their messaging rather than belief.

But this new blunder takes the cake. The House Dems in an effort to paint Trump a monster just indicted Barack Obama instead.

They tried to bash Trump with a picture of kids in cages except that the photo was from 2014 when Obama was President. Ouch…

From The New York Post: Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have deleted tweets that promoted an upcoming Wednesday afternoon hearing on “kids in cages” after being called out for using Obama-era images of migrants in detention to highlight current conditions at the border.

“Last week, members of our committee visited a detention center at the southern border and discovered grotesque treatment of children,” read the first tweet, posted Tuesday afternoon. “This week, we are examining the inhumane treatment of the children in these detention centers.”

But the tweet included a photograph taken by the Associated Press in 2014, during the Obama administration, showing migrants in detention in Arizona. The Trump campaign flagged the soon-deleted tweet and noted the image comes from a time when current Democratic presidential primary front-runner Joe Biden was vice president.

“House Democrats are promoting their ‘civil rights’ hearing on ‘kids in cages’ and ‘inhumane treatment’ with a photo from 2014, when Joe Biden was Vice President,” the tweet read. “So dishonest!”

According to The Daily Caller, House Democrats then put up a new tweet with a different photograph — also, it turns out, from the Obama years. That tweet was soon deleted as well, after it was noticed by their Republican counterparts on the committee.

“You all know that’s a picture from 2014, right? Remind us who was President then,” the tweet said.
