    A picture taken of a girl crying that was put on the front cover of Time Magazine was not separated from her parents at the US border. In short, they were lying. Dozens of news outlets then grabbed the picture to post similar things about Trump.

    I almost feel like I'm a doing a public service for those who only listen to certain news outlets who lie to them 24/7. I also confident none of your news sources mentioned that Obama had the same problem yet no one mentioned a word about it.

    The intent was not to tell the public that this girl was separated from her family.

    Magazine covers are primarily intended for imagery.

    This cover conveys the image the US is projecting to the world.

    And that is accurate. Not fake !!

    Besides, Donald is NOT fat like the picture shows, right ?? 😛

    Why do you focus on the handful of false news stories and ignore the reality that thousands of children ARE separated due to Trump? Will you also post pictures of children Roy Moore didn't molest?

    You're talking to the wrong person.

    The paper and ink have mass and are visible. So yes. It's real.

    And the message conveyed by the cover is accurate, correct ?
    America is cracking down on illegal immigration, correct.

    The little girl could be illegal, a victim of child smuggling or just not be separated from her parents.
    That depends on the due diligence of the media.

    But the facts are there.
    This administration has fumbled the ball on this. Badly !!

    I'm getting this not from the NY Times or CNN or Washington Post but rather from the actions of the administration.

    Trump flip flopping, Sessions quoting from the Bible, Melania rebelling, Lewandowski generally acting like an idiot and more.

    This administration is in disarray.

    Maybe I'll tune in to FOX Propaganda so I can hear what a great job Trump is doing. 🙄

    I posted a link with the sound of children locked up in cages crying.

    Why the hell are you focussing on what a magazine publishes, instead of the dramatic story unfolding?

    It’s like denying the holocaust,
    Because one source got a broken window wrong.

    Due to Trump?

    The same thing happened under Obama. In fact, in another news story they took pictures of kids in cages during the Obama Presidency but implied that it was under Trump.

    If you're talking about the pic/video I think you are it was a protest where the Mexican parents lock their own children in a dog cage for a photo shoot during the protest. Look up the story. Did it for ya. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/toddler-cage-photo/
