WTF MSM!? Trump called MS-13 thugs ‘animals,’ not all immigrants

Purposeful misinformation …

It’s the thugs … Yesterday President Donald Trump was asked by Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mimms about how to address her difficulties under California’s sanctuary state law in dealing with violent MS-13 gang members. Here’s the president’s response. It is perfectly clear that he is talking about those violent thugs and not immigrants in general when he says, “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.”

That didn’t stop the mainstream media from purposefully misrepresenting those remarks in headlines like this:

Those are just some of the ridiculous headlines about the statement. Politico’s Tim Alberta said the reason these headlines happened is because the president is often racist. Or maybe, Tim, you just don’t actually understand what he is saying and assume he is racist.

Not just the headlines … It wasn’t just the headlines; it was a whole host of media personalities who didn’t just stop at mischaracterization; they went full Godwin’s law, comparing Trump to Hitler. For example, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell: “Who said this, Hitler or Trump?” And CNN’s Ana Navarro: “Trump is in very bad company. Nazis referred to Jews as ‘rats’.” Then there was NYC Media Lab’s Justin Hendrix: “We’re in Hitler territory.”

I will give CNN’s Jake Tapper some credit here. He tweeted out the actual transcript of the remarks clearly showing that Trump was referring to the violent thugs and murderers of MS-13.

About MS-13 … A few weeks ago the Left was trying to say that the MS-13 problem wasn’t real, just a scare tactic of the Right. MSNBC’s Joy Reid was out front in the crusade. Fast-forward to this week, when noted right-wing demagogue Governor Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., allocated an additional $7.5 M to fight the gang, most notably on Long Island. That is a significant sum for a problem that doesn’t exist.
