The liberal media and Democrat lawmakers got busted this week taking President Donald Trump out of context when he referred to MS-13 gang members as “animals.”
Many on the left deliberately twisted his words so that it appeared he was referring to all immigrants as being “animals” who aren’t welcome in the country. That is not true at all nor is that what he said.
On Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are now defending MS-13 gang bangers from Trump’s comments.
Desperate to attack and resist Trump, they are siding with brutal gang members whose motto is, “rape, control, kill.”
Schumer falsely claimed Trump was calling all immigrants “animals,” adding “and these people aren’t either,” referring to MS-13 gang members.
When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t “animals,” and these people aren’t either.

Pelosi then weighed in during her weekly press conference on Thursday, stating they are not “animals.”
“So when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?’” she asked.
“Calling people animals is not a good thing,” she concluded.
The catastrophic lie began when a selectively edited clip posted by CSPAN showed the president saying, “We have people coming into the country…You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals.”

The comment was made by Trump after California Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned MS-13 at the event.
Trump saying they are “bad people” and “animals” was a direct response to the comments made by Mims, but CSPAN used a selectively edited clip and gave liberals all the ammunition they needed to falsely attack Trump.
MS-13 has been labeled as one of the most violent gangs to ever exist in America, where they are involved in numerous cases of machete attacks, kidnapping, rape, torture, murder, brutal beatings, and robberies.
During the press briefing on Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the delusional media that the term Trump used wasn’t “strong enough” and explained that a MS-13 gang member stabbed a man 100 times, decapitated him, and ripped his heart out.
Here’s Sanders informing the media about MS-13’s brutality and saying Trump’s “animal” comment wasn’t strong enough:
Schumer, Pelosi, and many in the media took a 20 second clip that was edited and have been endlessly slandering and smearing Trump over a complete lie.
This is why so many Americans loathe the media and do not trust them to report the news fairly and accurately.
And if Democrats and the media want to defend these brutal gang members, they can go right ahead.
