Barack Obama was furious that this fake news lie just blew up in his face
The fake news media is on the warpath.
Left-wing media outlets tried to smear Donald Trump over the chaos at the southern border.
But one lie they told just blew up in their faces and now they revealed a scandal Obama wanted to keep hidden.
Fake news reporters seized on the image of Border Patrol agents using tear gas to repel migrants attempting to invade America.
They presented the scene as an act of unprecedented cruelty personally ordered by Donald Trump because he enjoys torturing Hispanic women and children.
But of course, the fake news media did not tell the whole story.
When Barack Obama was President, the Border Patrol used tear gas on illegal aliens 79 times.
The Daily Caller reports:
CBP provided The Daily Caller News Foundation with figures on the number of incidents involving 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, commonly called tear gas or CS gas, in each fiscal year since 2012. From FY 2012 to FY 2016, CBP under the Obama administration used tear gas on 79 occasions.
Use of tear gas dropped after 2013, falling from 27 incidents in FY 2013 to only three in FY 2016. Incidents ticked up to 18 in FY 2017, which included about the last four months of Obama’s presidency and the first eight months of Trump’s.
There were 29 tear gas incidents in FY 2018, which ended in September – more than any year from FY 2012 to FY 2017. Tear gas may have been launched or used multiple times in one incident.
This is another example of why Trump’s attacks on the fake news media stick.
The people who work at ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post and The New York Times are not journalists.
They are Democrat partisans with press passes.
And no one should believe anything they print or air.
