As Twitchy has reported, the use of tear gas at the border has had many in the media reporting the news as if it’s some sort of unprecedented human rights violation exclusive to the Trump administration. The truth is, however, much different:
THERE it is! Guess how often tear gas was used at the border during Obama’s presidency (Hint: RIP Dem/media narrative) https://t.co/aMFVjZKGIT

Frequent Trump critic George Takei has slammed the use of tear gas at the border, but since made a discovery:
I've spoken out forcefully against the recent use of tear gas at our borders. I've since learned that this practice was commonplace under Obama, just not widely reported. I readily admit that my outrage is unfairly placed. This isn't just a "Trump" issue. It is an American issue.

Perhaps Mr. Takei should ask himself why he’s just learning about that, and then maybe give a second thought to those who say the media has a liberal bias problem.
