PJM: During the Democratic primary debate in September, Joe Biden, when asked by Univision’s Jorge Ramos why Latinos should trust him, replied, “What Latinos should look at is comparing [Trump] to [Obama] is outrageous. Number one, we didn’t lock up people up in cages, we didn’t separate families… we didn’t do all of those things.”
It was a complete lie, but none of the moderators called him out on it. No one in the media dared point out that it was the Obama-Biden administration that actually built the cages because they wanted to blame it all on Trump
But, on Friday, Jorge Ramos finally called Biden out in a new interview. “At the debate in Houston, you said that during the Obama-Biden administration, ‘We didn’t lock people in cages,’ but you actually did,” he told the former vice president, showing him a picture to prove it.
Suddenly being faced with evidence of lie, Biden immediately started rationalizing. “What happened was all the unaccompanied children were coming across the border,” he said. “We tried to get them out, we kept them safe, and get them out of the detention center… run by Homeland Security and get them into communities as quickly as we can.”
