Bloomberg's Anti-Trump ad uses photo from Obama migrant cages


Michael Bloomberg's latest ad, a very anti-Trump ad, was caught using a photograph from the 2014 Obama-era migrant detention facility.

The picture is of migrants sleeping or resting under the foil blankets. The only problem is that the original scene happened in 2014 while former President Barack Obama was still in the White House.

A Daily Caller reported figured this out and compared a still shot from Ross D. Franklin. The photo that Bloomberg's ad uses is of the exact same scene, but a slightly different angle.

The DCNF compared this image to a photo taken by Ross D. Franklin for The Associated Press in June 2014. The picture, which the DCNF obtained from Getty Images, was taken inside a Customs and Border Protection facility in Nogales, Arizona. (Daily Caller)

You can see the same crossed feet in the photograph, the mats aligned the same way, the rest of the scene overall as well.

It appears like the photo used is more zoomed in, as the fence is closer - but you can make out all the details fairly simply.
