CNN hasn’t been shy about helping to support the Democratic narrative.
So it’s no surprise that in the talking about family separations that have happened under every president for decades, they tried to blame President Donald Trump rather than the laws in effect that lead to the separation and that families have been separated under every president going back to at least the Clinton administration.
But CNN even went a step further.
CNN’s ‘National Security Analyst’ Sam Vinograd explained that while of course Trump is ‘evil’ because he separated families, when former president Barack Obama separated families, he was “doing it for their protection.”

The reason families are separated at the border goes back to 1997. AG Reno settled a lawsuit challenging the Clinton admin’s detention of juvenile migrants. In the settlement, the gov't agreed that it could detain unaccompanied minors for only 20 days then placed with relatives. pic.twitter.com/16y9wQt04s

Obama Fan Club round table agrees that when Obama does it, it's justified. When Trump does it, it's evil.

Didn't she work for Obama national Security Team?

Yes, she did and CNN failed to mention that. She worked for the National Security Council under Obama.
He did it for their protection? Was it for their protection when he turned kids over to human traffickers without properly vetting who they were?
He did it for their own safety https://t.co/PzJrTH8ziX

The Trump administration came in and helped to stop it, requiring more identification checks on people to make sure kids were released were released to parents or proper guardians.
