Michelle Obama Trashes Trump For Throwing Kids In Cages – Her Husband Built Those Cages

Former First Lady Michelle Obama slammed President Trump for throwing children of illegal immigrants in cages, a practice that also took place under her husband’s administration.

Mrs. Obama’s speech, widely heralded by the mainstream media – including personalities at Fox News – as being a moral argument against Trump, contained several falsehoods.

In fact, one portion in which she criticizes America’s current leadership as lacking empathy and fomenting disdain is particularly troublesome.

“They see our leaders labeling fellow citizens enemies of the state while emboldening torch-bearing white supremacists,” she passionately complained.

“They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages, and pepper spray and rubber bullets are used on peaceful protestors for a photo-op,” Obama continued.

We count two lies in those comments, along with one instance of super-audacious hypocrisy.

CNN gushed that Obama’s speech constituted “a moral case against Donald Trump” and “an appeal aimed at the heart and conscience of every American.”

But how can she claim the moral high ground while blatantly lying to the American people?

First off, President Trump never ’emboldened torch-bearing white supremacists,’ a clear reference to the Charlottesville hoax – A myth concocted by the media in which the President supposedly called neo-Nazis at a rally in 2017 “fine people.”

That hoax has been debunked time and time and time again, yet Michelle lies about it with ease.

Second, law enforcement didn’t clear out “peaceful protesters” at St. John’s Church in June.

They cleared out violent anarchists who had tried to burn the church down the night before and who pelted officers with various projectiles that very day.

Obama lying seems to be second-nature. But the granddaddy of them all is her comment regarding kids in cages.

Who Wants to Tell Her

The problem with Michelle lamenting Americans that “watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages” is that … well, this happened while her husband, Barack Obama, was President.

“I have some awkward news from the Obama years,” replied Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro.

So did the Associated Press, who actually – shockingly – fact-checked the former First Lady on the comment, calling it a “distorted point” and criticism of the President.

“What she did not say is that the very same ‘cages’ were built and used in her husband’s administration, for the same purpose of holding migrant kids temporarily,” the AP wrote.


Thomas Homan, the executive associate director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) under the Obama and Joe Biden administration, says he was there when they were building cages to house illegal immigrants.

“I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages. That facility was built under President Obama under Secretary Jeh Johnson,” Homan explained at a conference hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies. “I was there when it was built.”

If only Michelle had her moral compass when her husband and Biden were having these cages constructed. If only she had a moral compass, period.

  • You have to admit it's pretty moronic for 2nd amendment enthusiasts to be blaming the person who built the cages rather than the monster who abused them. How quickly you discard the whole "Guns don't kill people, people kill people" argument.

  • And appoint a black fellow as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of State; and a black woman as Secretary of State.

    This whole "racist country" and "systematic racism" shtick is a load of crap and if they can't let it rest it may be time to show them what racism is REALLY like...

  • I look back on former first ladies Jackie Kennedy Onassis Lady Bird Johnson Nancy Reagan Rosalynn Carter Barbara Bush Laura Bush all elegant classy ladies and then you have Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama what in the world happened

  • Come in Shelly your lies have Circled around and been found out years ago. You really must check your lies out before you fire them off. You look like a uninformed fool. More than useful. Just because you were once in the White House does not mean you have a right to lie and think you won't be called out for it. I do have a fact for you. Your years were the most unproductive , and expensive years any president and spouse ever saw . There is more but frankly I value my time . Bottom line Shelly check your facts

  • No amount of makeup and soft lighting features can ever cover up the the evil and darkness that exudes from this woman's skin and heart. Dems could never go high since they've been so low for years. And nothing will ever change that either. Sad really. 😖

  • How can she do blatantly LIE to the American people???? You know why? It's because all those teens, lazy adults and 20 odd year olds won't take the time to check out the facts of what was actually said and done!!! They'd rather just believe the B.S. that is fed to them and believe that that is the truth!!!! Because it suits their way of thinking, truth or not!!! How can she LIE to the American people and then claim that she has the American people's best interest at heart and in mind???!!!??? HOW can she do this with a straight face is beyond me!!! He's been there??? Like hell she has!!!! (No mistaking the spelling, there!!!). Here is a good question..... How did the Obama daughters become multi-millionaires while daddy was POTUS!!!! It wasn't from their good looks, witt or wisdom!!!!! Hmmmmmm. Anyone care to explain that one???
