Folks, we are officially living in the twilight zone. No matter what President Trump does or says, the liberal media will spin the other side of the story.
Within the past few days, Trump has somehow tricked the liberal media into defending the violent, blood-thirsty illegal gang known as ‘MS-13’. During his Friday speech, President Trump directly exposed them for the thugs they are, and the media has immediately come to their defense.
Fox News compiled some of the most bizarre arguments that the media has been making over the past few days. Here’s what they found:
Trump’s Friday speech on Long Island, where MS-13 gang members have wreaked havoc, highlighted his plan to crack down on gang violence and enforce immigration policies to prevent criminals from illegally entering the United States.
“[MS-13 has] transformed peaceful parks and beautiful quiet neighborhoods into blood-stained killing fields. They’re animals. We cannot tolerate as a society the spilling of innocent, young, wonderful vibrant people,” Trump said to an audience of law enforcement officials, who mostly cheered in approval.
But despite the president’s pledge to stop the killings and keep Americans safe from gang members, several left-leaning outlets asserted Trump was making the gang “stronger” with his rhetoric.
CNN claimed Trump’s speech was “emboldening” MS-13, allowing the group to more easily recruit members because, the network said, the president and his policies were instilling fear in illegal immigrants. CNN’s Dan Lieberman even went so far as to interview two gang members who complained “murders from MS-13 don’t only hurt one family, but hurt both.”
“I started growing up in that type of neighborhood. I didn’t really get love from my family. Where I grew up, [MS-13] were there, almost all of them,” one member told Lieberman. “They seemed like really nice people. They were there for me through tough times.”
Let me stop right there. In case you were wondering, CNN actually just said that.
“THEY SEEMED LIKE REALLY NICE PEOPLE.” Really, CNN? REALLY?
Vox got in on the action by releasing a report that twisted Trump’s words to appear as if the president believed all illegal immigrants were “subhuman.” Trump in his speech highlighted recent killings MS-13 has carried out in an attempt to have the gravity of the situation hit home for the Long Island crowd — but to Vox it was just “tough talk before an adoring crowd.”
Slate’s Jamelle Bouie said Trump’s speeches on MS-13 and illegal immigration used words to “make white people afraid.”
“Trump wasn’t just connecting immigrants with violent crime. He was using an outright racist trope: that of the violent, sadistic black or brown criminal, preying on innocent (usually white) women,” Bouie wrote.
Washington Post columnist Philip Bump used this tact to criticize Trump, too, when the president, on Wednesday visited Ohio and told a story about gang violence.
“This anecdote, referring to a murder in Virginia, is Trump’s graphic depiction of Hispanic immigrants in the United States: Violent, bloodthirsty animals,” he wrote.
I’m pretty sure if President Trump came out and opposed Hitler, the media would find a way to say “Well, he wasn’t THAT bad….”
I think President Trump plays these kinds of games on the media on purpose. He takes a hard-nosed position on something, knowing that the media will take the other side, and then he exposes their disgusting hypocrisy.
