Former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer posted a simple reminder of how then President Obama made a very similar move with refugees from Iraq in 2011.

In an attempt at a clever response, POLITICO’s Blake Hounshell tried to corner Fleischer.

But Fleischer was making a much larger point.

Exactly right. The media enjoyed a golden opportunity to raise a stink about this EXACT issue when Barack Obama was president. They remained silent. They didn’t rock the boat. They didn’t even care. Now they are left with no credibility.
