After the media got caught distorting President Trump’s comments labeling murderous MS-13 gang members “animals” as an attack on all immigrants, on Thursday afternoon, MSNBC only briefly corrected the record before immediately blaming the President for press “confusion” on the topic given his history of saying “incendiary and racist things” in the past.
Following the rest of the press, New York Times reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis falsely portrayed the president as attacking all “undocumented immigrants” (in the paper’s politically correct terminology) as “animals” when he was clearly only talking about criminal gangs, including the murderous MS-13. The story came out of a White House meeting between President Trump and California mayors and sheriffs who oppose the state’s policy of “sanctuary cities” to protect illegal immigrants: “Trump Rants on Unauthorized Migrants: ‘These Aren’t People, These Are Animals.”
As though it wasn’t bad enough that some journalists are distorting Donald Trump’s attacks on the murderous MS-13 gang, journalist John Harwood on Thursday tweeted a sympathetic spin on the vicious killers. Instead of altering the President’s comments to be an attack on immigrants, the CNBC reporter offered a defense of the vile criminals who dismember their victims.
CBS News Radio White House correspondent Steven Portnoy snuck in a question at Thursday’s White House Press Briefing to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders concerning the President’s comments about illegal immigrant gang members (specifically MS-13) being “animals.” Sanders didn’t waste the opportunity to savagely torch the liberal media for rallying to the murderous gang’s defense against the President, even suggesting that the President didn’t go far enough.
ABC, MSNBC, The New York Times and other media outlets on Wednesday and Thursday distorted Donald Trump’s attack on MS-13, the brutal gang of illegal criminals, into a slur on “undocumented immigrants.” On MSNBC, the network graphic misled: “Trump Calls Some Undocumented Immigrants ‘Animals’ in Rant.”
During the May 16 episode of Fox’s Star, ICE agents were portrayed as unfeeling ogres, as is currently the style this season on network television shows, but this one hit a new low. After a funeral, ICE surrounded a church to haul off one of the pallbearers, leaving his family and friends crying and screaming in the street with the casket.
An irritated Chris Cuomo on Wednesday bizarrely scoffed at the idea that keeping the illegal immigrant killer of Kate Steinle out of the country would have saved the young woman’s life. Cuomo also derided talking in a way that painted Jose Ines Garcia Zarate and others as monsters. While discussing Trump administration efforts to thwart illegal immigration, Cuomo complained: “But Kate Steinle has always been a gross misappropriation of the tragedy that ended her life. It doesn't meet with the facts of the situation.”
The Trump administration’s efforts to dissuade more families from illegally entering the United States by systematically separating parents from their children when they do so has run afoul of NBC’s Spanish-language sister network, Telemundo.
On Monday, The View team fulminated several times about remarks made about immigrants by White House chief of staff John Kelly (and in his defense, Fox News analyst Tomi Lahren). Later in the show, Empire star Terrence Howard brought his best globalist "borders are imposed by men" blather, and then seemed to lapse into discussing how the native Americans fed the European immigrants, like Squanto and the Pilgrims.
On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance declared that veterans who "love Trump" are "not honorable" during a discussion of some of President Donald Trump's history of trashing Senator John McCain. And a bit earlier, the MSNBC analyst claimed that efforts to combat illegal immigration are a part of "institutionalized bigotry" and "racism" toward Latin Americans.
Arguably it is the single most laughable thing that liberals do -- piously ooze purported concern for babies while otherwise elevating abortion on demand to a sacred right that must be defended at all costs. No leftist in media better evokes this perverted dynamic than MSNBC's clownish master of smarm, Rachel Maddow. Her most recent example might well have set a record for cringes among conservatives who comprise a sliver of her audience.
Stephanie Ruhle lost her grip on reality Tuesday morning when she attempted to draw a contrast between First Lady Melania Trump’s new “Be Best” initiative for children and President Trump’s policies. The MSNBC host’s diatribe featured the absurd claim that enforcing existing immigration laws and cutting taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood would hurt children.
