Take a look at the following headline from Zero Hedge on Friday (their complete story is linked here)…
As ‘Caravan’ Crosses Mexico, Trump’s ‘Temporary’ Tent City For Migrant Kids Balloons In Size
It makes it sound like Trump is preparing to house all the unaccompanied children in the Honduran Caravan that’s headed our way, when the fact is this tent city has been there for months, as well as others along the border and in Florida. While their headline is misleading, their post is at least factual, although vague on dates and additional details that were easily found in a simple search, which also reveals that it was Obama who began setting up tent cities. That fact was conveniently omitted and this particular city was set up in June and the expansion was started in September, long before the current caravan made headlines.

Zero Hedge has been described as an alt-right site whose political views more align with sites like Drudge. There are disagreements on the definition of alt-right but even straight-shooter Sharyl Attkisson listed them as just slightly to the right of Drudge.
In other words, they’re supposed to be one of the good guys. The ones who stick to the facts and tell the truth – not the ones who word their headlines for added drama, although that seems to be more the norm these days. It’s bad enough that the mainstream media and CNN can’t be trusted with the truth, but lately the supposedly conservatives can’t be trusted either. Are y’all seeing more of this too?
The side story on these tent cities is that when Obama was building them, we never heard a peep. It wasn’t until Trump talked about ending his policies that the Dems raised a big stink about it. Never mind that this one facility alone costs us $100 million per month.
