In 2014 No One Questioned Obama's Declaration of a "Crisis" on the Border. Media Parroted the Line. Now they Trash Trump for Using the SAME LANGUAGE!

The Trump-hate media hypocrites have no shame. And no conscience either!

Compare the language Obama and Trump used to describe a "crisis" on the border:

From the Washington Examiner:
"We now have an actual humanitarian crisis on the borer that only underscores the need to drop the politics and fix our immigration system once and for all," then-President Barack Obama said in the Rose Garden in 2014. "In recent weeks we've seen a surge of unaccompanied children arrive at the border, brought here and to other countries by smugglers and traffickers."
The Washington Post on July 12, 2014, referred to "the current crisis on the Southwest border, where authorities have apprehended tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American children since October ..." The story's lead author was Karen Tumulty, now a columnist for the Post, who completely dismissed the idea of any crisis at the border this week.

"We are headed to this extraordinary situation where the president declares a state of emergency, which does not exist, and the law does not really explain what we do if the president manufactures an emergency," she said Tuesday on MSNBC.

On June 5, 2014, a New York Times article began, "This is what it looks like when an immigration system is overwhelmed by tens of thousands of women and children from Central America." It further noted that, "The Federal Emergency Management Agency has been ordered to coordinate efforts to contain the crisis."

The Times editorial board this week, however, said that the crisis is actually "in the Oval Office."
Republicans and conservative media didn't denounce Obama for a "manufactured crisis." There was no caterwauling of deeply personal criticism of Obama on this issue. The only disagreement Republicans had was on the substance of policy not attacks on motive.

More evidence that Democrats will SAY ANYTHING to undermine Trump expecting that their supporters will neither remember, nor care, that they said the exact same thing just a few years ago!
