Michelle Obama Gets Brutally Fact-Checked After Failing To Mention Her Husband Built Cages For Migrants

On Monday night, Michelle Obama ripped President Trump for ‘throwing kids in cages’, but her claims were so misleading that it even forced some left-wing fact checkers to speak up.

“They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages,” Obama said with dramatic flare.

Here’s what the left-leaning Chicago Tribune had to say about her misleading claims:

THE FACTS: The reference to cages is misleading and a matter that Democrats have persistently distorted.

But some of those photos — by The Associated Press — were taken in 2014 and depicted some of the thousands of unaccompanied children held by President Barack Obama.

The Associated Press also brutally fact checked her, saying:
