President Donald Trump is on the cover of TIME magazine over immigration and the separation of children at the border:

Here’s a photoshopped version from Benny Johnson which TIME should have run in 2014, but of course, did not:
Obama separated families at the border.
Obama housed unaccompanied minors in tent cities & in cages.
Obama prosecuted hundreds of thousands for illegal border crossings.
Obama deported millions.
Where was this TIME cover then?

To answer TIME’s question of “what kind of country are we?” The answer is, “the same as Obama’s.”
But they did cover Obama during the border crisis of 2014 … just not the same way they’re covering Trump:

Also from 2014, Obama is the good guy!

But, alas … the accurate cover on Obama will never make it to the floor of Congress like the Trump one has already done:
