Michelle Rips Trump For ‘Kids In Cages,’ Forgets Her Husband Started It

During her speech at the virtual Democratic National Convention, former first lady Michelle Obama called out and berated President Trump for the widely used accusation of separating children from their parents at the Southern Border and locking them in “cages.” What Michelle Obama seems to have forgotten, is that the policy was created under her husband’s presidency and halted during the Trump Administration.

As reported by the AP, Michelle slammed the President for locking children in cages but forgot to mention that they were constructed during Barack Obama’s presidency and used for the exact same purpose. The chain link block facilities were used to hold migrant children until U.S. Customs and Border Protection, along with Health and Human Services, could verify the children’s ‘parents.’ Many times, migrant children were discovered to be trafficked into the United States by criminals or persons with nefarious purposes.

The former first lady said Americans  “watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages.”

These cages, however, were created and utilized as early as 2014. In fact, Sara Carter covered the story extensively in 2014 when she worked for The Blaze.

This was the year several pictures were taken of the cages that began circuiting in past years to criticize Trump’s immigration polices. Many who posted the pictures deleted them after discovering they were actually taken in Obama’s tenure.

This shunned practice was eventually stopped by Trump as a result of the fierce uproar. This same outcry was not heard when Obama initiated the same practice.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
