Michelle Obama Fact Checked by Associated Press. But Her Necklace was a Hit.
Yesterday’s live stream line up at the Democrat National Convention was everything we expected it to be: boring, riddled with lies and constant Trump bashing. Michelle Obama trended because of her necklace, not so much her words. (No joke- her $300-$400 necklace spelled out the word “Vote.” People went nuts trying to buy it). Unfortunately, her words were rife with lies – her own husband is the one who came up with the “rip children from their parents and put them in cages” gig.
The Daily Wire reported,
Former first lady Michelle Obama claimed on Monday night that the Trump administration was taking children from their families and throwing them into cages but failed to mention that her husband, former President Barack Obama, was the one who built them.
Michelle Obama claimed that “right now, kids in this country are” watching “in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages.”
Michelle’s remark was just one of many false or misleading statements that she made during her speech at the Democratic National Convention.
The Associated Press said that Michelle Obama’s remarks were “a frequent and distorted point made widely by Democrats.”
“But what she did not say is that the very same ‘cages’ were built and used in her husband’s administration, for the same purpose of holding migrant kids temporarily,” the AP reported. “Trump used facilities that were built during the Obama-Biden administration to house children at the border. They are chain-link enclosures inside border facilities where migrants were temporarily housed, separated by sex and age.
But she didn’t stop there, then she claimed that Trump “turned his back on our alliances.” Right. Does she EVER stop lying? Never mind the peace deal he just brokered between Israel and the UAE.
Amazing to hear Michelle Obama accuse @realDonaldTrump of "turning our back on alliances" days after he brokered a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, two allies the Obama-Biden administration spurned and placed in danger. #DNC

The former First Lady was the last speaker on Monday, and when even the Associated Press fact checks a Democrat, you know something was awry. But, there are several more livestreams to go, so we recommend another channel. Like Discovery or NatGeo. Just sayin’.
