Earlier this week we took the “mainstream” media to task over its blatantly dishonest claim that outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen will forever be remembered as the Trump official who “put kids in cages.”
“Kirstjen Nielsen, I think, is a great example of what happens when you go to work for Donald Trump,” CNN chief ‘legal’ toadie Jeffrey Toobin claimed over the weekend. “He is the great reputation killer. Here is this woman who was a reasonably admired bureaucrat. For the rest of her life people will look at her and think, ‘Oh, that’s the woman who put children in cages.’”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) joined in too.
“It is deeply alarming that the Trump Administration official who put children in cages is reportedly resigning because she is not extreme enough for the White House’s liking,” said Pelosi.
“The president’s dangerous and cruel anti-immigrant policies have only worsened the humanitarian suffering at the border and inflicted vast suffering on the families who have been torn apart,” Pelosi said.
The outgoing DHS chief repeatedly pushed back against this blatant and cosmically irresponsible lie for much of her nearly two-year tenure at the helm of DHS. In congressional hearings and on cable news programs, she said time and time again that no, Border Patrol, ICE, and Customs and Border Protection agents were not putting “kids in cages.”
But do you know who did? That would be the Obama administration, as evidenced by 2014 photographs broadcast and reported by none other than…CNN.
Here is the photographic evidence- (notice the date)
Nielsen has also been saddled with the lie that she and POTUS Trump created the “family separation” policy.
“The Obama administration, the Bush administration all separated families,” she noted last year. “They absolutely did.”
She’s absolutely right. In fact, POTUS Trump ended it after the pathetic Leftist media made an issue of it beginning last year as a means of furthering the lie that he’s a racist and a bigot.
