President Donald Trump has gotten a lot of grief for his treatment of those crossing the border from Mexico into the United States.
The Trump administration has been accused of caging children, separating families and even, in some instances, of actually drugging those caged children.
The treatment of immigrants at the border by the Trump administration has always been something the media has bashed Trump for but since the Mueller report didn’t quite pan out the way they’d hope, it seems they are going back to that old attack even more.
However, what you aren’t likely to hear is that Obama actually separated families at the border as well. One CNN commentator recently acknowledged this fact but instead said that Obama had the best of intentions for his move.
He actually did it for their “own protection” she says with a straight face.
