Yesterday, an image of a father and his child who allegedly drowned as they attempted to illegally cross the border from Mexico into the United States, was circulating around social media. After two years of begging Democrats for funding to stem the humanitarian crisis on our border, the left is now blaming President Trump for the humanitarian crisis on our border.
Democrat Rep Rashida Tlaib (MI), posted a photo of the deceased father and child, and in her tweet, refers to President Trump as a “monster” and his administration as, “heartless.”
Yes, let’s hold the President of the United States responsible for a father who risked his son’s and his life to cross the Mexican border with to gain illegal entry into the United States. Never mind that he & his son would still be alive today if they did it the legal way. 🙄

In 2014, the media praised President Obama for his “tough talk,” when he warned migrants from Central and South America to stop sending their kids to the United States and using them as pawns to gain entry into our country.
In 2014, CNN’s John King interviewed two pro-Obama, (currently anti-Trump) reporters, Jackie Kucinich of the Washington Post and Oliver Knox of Yahoo News about the humanitarian crisis involving children from Mexico and South American who were flooding our southern borders.
CNN’s King started out the segment by defending former President Barack Obama and his “tough” stance on children attempting to cross our southern border. “He’s been criticized by some Republicans saying, the reason more than 50,000 young kids have come to the border and tried to get into the United State illegally, sent by their parents from Guatemala and Honduras. Some Republicans are suggesting the President hasn’t been tough enough, ” King told his panel of pro-Obama reporters.
“Listen to these tough words here,” King said as he pointed to a clip showing a conversation between Barack Obama and George Stephanopoulos.
“Our message is absolutely, don’t send your children, unaccompanied, uh, on trains or through a bunch of smugglers. We don’t even know how many of these kids don’t may it and may have been waylayed into sex trafficking or killed because they fell off a train. We have no way of tracking that, ” Obama warned.
“So, that is our direct message to the families in Central America. Do not send your children to the borders. If they do make it, they’ll get sent back. More importantly, they may not make it,” Obama told Stephanopoulos.
Washington Post’s Jackie Kucinich was very careful to defend President Obama’s efforts but appears to be attacking President Trump’s administration for holding children who cross our borders illegally in detention centers.
“A 2-year-old boy locked in detention wants to be held all the time. A few girls, ages 10 to 15, say they’ve been doing their best to feed and soothe the clingy toddler who was handed to them by a guard days ago.” https://t.co/uayFfNyWhc

In what can only be described as embarrassing hypocrisy, Kucinich also retweeted this tweet from Daily Beast reporter Scott Bixby who writes about the audacity of President Trump to blame Democrats and Barack Obama for the dire “confitions” in immigrant detention centers.
President Trump has repeatedly told advisers and senior aides that there is only one acceptable response to public outrage over the dire confitions in immigrant detention centers: blaming Democrats and Barack Obama.

Conservative comedian Terrence Williams posted a video with his hilarious commentary on Obama’s “tough talk” on illegal alien kids.
