Both Democrats and most news media are yelling as often as they can that there is no border “crisis,” even though they spent the last year telling everyone there was and even though they had no problem explicitly calling it a “crisis” in 2014, when the situation was the exact same as it is now.

“We now have an actual humanitarian crisis on the borer that only underscores the need to drop the politics and fix our immigration system once and for all,” then-President Barack Obama said in the Rose Garden in 2014. “In recent weeks we’ve seen a surge of unaccompanied children arrive at the border, brought here and to other countries by smugglers and traffickers.”

This is no different than what President Trump said from the Oval Office on Tuesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

The only difference is how the media are covering it.

The Washington Post on July 12, 2014, referred to “the current crisis on the Southwest border, where authorities have apprehended tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American children since October …” The story’s lead author was Karen Tumulty, now a columnist for the Post, who completely dismissed the idea of any crisis at the border this week.

    Sheeple how can you still believe the demonrats when they have lied to your face about what PRESIDENT TRUMP has been telling you. The President didn’t lie. Maybe in 2014 you weren’t paying attention cause you were blinded by your love for the new lying backstabbing lowlife man that you thought was president for you. Guess what? He wasn’t for you and still brainwashing you sheeple. Wake up before it’s too late!
