A photograph of two migrant children sleeping in a cage at an ICE detention facility quickly went viral on Sunday after several prominent liberals tweeted it in a white-hot rage at President Trump’s immigration policy.
After a laundry list of journalists and public figures angrily tweeted the photo – including CNN’s Hadas Gold, NYT Mag’s editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein, Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau and former LA mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, they deleted their tweets in shame when it emerged that the photo was taken in 2014, under Obama.
Indeed – nobody thought to check the date on the attached article, published in June of 2014.
The award for the lamest excuse goes to CNN’s Hadas Gold, who wrote “Deleted previous tweet because gave impression of recent photos (they’re from 2014)”
