Fact check: False claim that Pelosi drunk in 2016 photo with Obama

  Fact check: False claim that Pelosi drunk in 2016 photo with Obama A viral photo of Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama is being used out of context to make the House speaker appear intoxicated. We rate this claim false."Oh that 'Crazy Nancy' This needs to go viral! I'm very sure she doesn't want this drunken photo out there of her," reads the text on top of the image.

In defending its “zero tolerance” border policy that has caused the separation of families , the Trump administration has argued that the Obama and Bush administrations did this too. Brown told us that while the Obama administration “did separate some families ,” it also tried to detain families together.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he's not considering reimplementing his administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, dredging up his earlier claim that President Barack Obama's administration separated migrant families .

The post, which includes a side-by-side photos of Taylor and Damond, goes on to compare Damond's settlement to Taylor’s $12 million settlement offer.

“Two women, killed wrongly by those sworn to protect. But a $40,000,000 gap in how their lives are VALUED. But 'ALL LIVES MATTER' right? Just not the same apparently. But it gets better... Not only that, but one's killer is in jail ...the other's killer is clocking in for work as we speak," the post reads.
