The 2019 outrage cycle over President Trump separating families and putting kids in cages began with a photo taken from a 2014 article from the Arizona Republic. People started tweeting and retweeting the photo, never mentioning it was taken during the Obama administration. But, of course, the Obama administration was “scandal-free.”

Twitter user @DesignationSix doesn’t have a blue check, but he does have more than 100,000 followers, and on Wednesday he explained why Democrats weren’t outraged over Barack Obama putting kids in cages: the Democrats who run the media didn’t cover it. But really, they did — just no one paid attention.

OK.

Yep. And what happened to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others who railed against the “concentration camps” at the border? They’re awfully quiet on the issue now.
