If you’ve been following the media outrage, and subsequent Hollywood celebrity and social media hysteria over immigrant children being “ripped” from their parents at the border, then you already know that this was all happening under Obama and the Democrats, naturally, didn’t blink an eye.
That, of course, doesn’t matter to the Democrat-media complex, who is successfully towing the line that under Trump, immigrants are now living in concentration camps where they are being cruelly ripped apart from their loved ones, ala Nazi train platforms circa 1939.
Shockingly, over the weekend, far-left Senator from California, Diane Feinstein, who I like to think of as “the other Nancy Pelosi”, actually admitted she didn’t pay that much attention to immigration policies under Obama.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Appearing on CNN on Friday, Feinstein was questioned by Jake Tapper about the recent viral photo shared by many Democrats of children in a holding cell. The photo was being used to condemn President Trump — but it was taken during the Obama era.Trending:
“There were a lot of things done to undocumented immigrants that the immigrant community was very upset about during the Obama years, that Democrats didn’t seem as outspoken about,” Tapper stated. “What do you say to people who are saying, ‘where was all this activism during the Obama years?’”
Senator Feinstein then admitted that she had previously ignored the issue, and claimed that it is worse now.Advertisement - story continues below
“I don’t believe that it was nearly to the extent that it is today. And candidly, I didn’t really know enough about it at that time to focus on it,” Feinstein said.
Ouch–the hypocrisy is painful.
Now, it’s acceptable for your average gay pride parade attendant in a conservative’s man-on-the-street YouTube video to not have any idea what was happening under Obama, but Feinstein is a Senator. Not only that, but she’s a Senator from a border state with the most illegal immigrants in the nation.
You kind of would have thought this was somewhere up there on the top of her list, especially considering how much Democrats love to fawn over illegal immigrants.
But no, she was clearly drunk on all the hope and change.
