This weekend, an image of child immigrants in a holding cell went viral. Obama speech writer Jon Favreau and countless other liberals and journalists tweeted the story, all of them bashing Trump.
However, the story is from 2014, meaning that it happened on Obama’s watch. OOPS!
Take a look at some of the tweets below:
I don’t know what’s worse… Obama’s speech writer self-owning himself by sharing an article dating back to 2014 under Obama or him deleting his tweet showing that he doesn’t actually care about the kids and just wanted to dunk on Trump pic.twitter.com/98SBJEXeot

I deleted this tweet because it’s poorly worded but am putting here for the record. I wasn’t suggesting that this not be shared, I just hate that it was shared w/o context. I hate when old stories are shared without noting the date (a mistake I’ve made in the past). I apologize. pic.twitter.com/SC5i3yimNT

Hello @antonio4ca Why did you delete this tweet? Is it because this was 2014 and you are no longer outraged because who this all happened under? Are you no longer speechless? Help explain, thanks. pic.twitter.com/Qe8Pr9Zac1

It’s amazing. The left will rush to judgement on anything as long as they think it will make Trump look bad. And so often, it completely blows up in their faces.
