Obama was complaining about the level of support that Trump received from hispanic voters during the election.
“But there’s a lot of evangelical Hispanics who, you know, the fact that Trump says racist things about Mexicans,” Obama said during the interview with with The Breakfast Club radio show.
“Or puts detainees, you know, undocumented workers, in cages — they think that’s less important than the fact that, you know, he supports their views on gay marriage or abortion, right?” Obama claimed.
Summit.news reports: It is more than a tad ironic that Obama begins by talking about how metropolitan elites can be out of touch with the rest of America, and then immediately goes on to pigeon hole Hispanic voters as only caring about abortion.
Are hispanic voters incapable of caring about economic issues or crime? Just because they are brown?
That isn’t the most egregious aspect of his comments, however, given that he completely ignores the fact that for many years the so called ‘cages’ were used by the Department of Homeland Security under the Obama administration.
While leftists pretty much ignored the story while Obama was in the White House, it suddenly became a major issue when Trump took office.
Indeed, the very same photos from 2014 were recycled and presented as if they were taken during Trump’s tenure.
This continued right up until the election.
When the conditions at the border facilities again made headlines in 2018 and 2019, particularly because children were being separated from their families, Trump asked that pressure be put on House Democrats to pass a law to end the practice:
When Democrats failed to do so, Trump signed an executive order demanding that the practice of separating children be immediately halted:
Democrats then complained that the EO wouldn’t fix the issue, while still doing nothing themselves:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even used the story as a photo-op, fake crying while wearing designer clothing and an expensive watch.
It was later revealed that the “cage” AOC was behind concealed nothing but a parking lot.
When news organisations, including Infowars, attempted to highlight this, the photographer who took the images claimed copyright and demanded they be removed from the story.
If Joe Biden takes office in January, expect photos of kids in cages to return. He has repeatedly promised to rapidly send an amnesty deal to the Senate within the first 100 days of his presidency that would give amnesty to 11 million immigrants who currently reside in the US without documentation.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Chief Mark Morgan has warned that if President Trump’s enforcement priorities on illegal immigration are abandoned, the US will see a huge “invasion” at the border.
