After seeing these truly horrendous, stomach-turning photos of the nightmarish conditions endured by detained refugees at the southern border, I have to just come right out and say it: this is intolerable, and inhuman, and Trump should be held accountable for…for his…for…that is to say…ummm…

The Hill, among other lying liars, is fobbing these and a shit-bucket more photos off as current—and all Trump’s fault, natch. More from the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Since the government acknowledged last month that the Trump administration had lost track of nearly 1,500 immigrant children, the debate over what that means and who is to blame has roiled Twitter. A look at the partisan claims and a reality check behind the latest immigration fight:
THE 2014 PHOTOS
—“Speechless. This is not who we are as a nation.” — Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa, former Los Angeles mayor now running for governor, referring in a tweet Sunday to photos showing young-looking immigrants in steel cages.
—“This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible.” — Jon Favreau, who was speechwriter for President Barack Obama, referring Sunday to the same photos.
THE FACTS: The photos, taken by The Associated Press, were from 2014, during the Obama administration, but were presented by liberal activists as if they showed the effects of Trump’s immigration policy now. Villaraigosa, Favreau and some others deleted their tweets when the mistake was pointed out.
Because of course they did. Hey, if the Tweet is gone it never happened, right, guys? Ace responds:
I noticed no one was deplatformed for promoting fake news, conspiracy theories, and invading privacy by posting pictures of the migrants.
Yeah, funny that. Funny, also, how every last one of these Enemedia “mistakes” only ever cut the one way. Why, one might almost get the impression that they’re not “mistakes” at all, but something more along the lines of being a strategy. Almost.
Y’know, I really must confess that—just once in a now-and-then—there are days when I truly cannot WAIT for the shooting to start.
