President Trump's 'Animals' Comment Taken Out Of Context By Media

I'm a "recovering" politician.  As such, I know that politicians "spin."  I define that as, not lying, but selectively using facts to impact your opinion.

Politicians should be held accountable for such behavior by a free media.  That's why I am astonished that the national media, in a fervor to portray President Donald Trump in a negative light, is engaging in some spinning of its own.

President Trump was asked about the gang MS-13 by Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims when addressing California sanctuary city laws.

Sheriff Mims:

“There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them.”

President Trump replied:

“You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”

These comments were then reported in the liberal media as referring to "some immigrants."

You can't convince me that the media didn't know that context for these comments was important.  I expect the left to often refuse to acknowledge that the debate over immigration in this country centers on ILLEGAL immigration -  not immigration in general.

But for the media to openly attempt to imply that a comment about MS-13 gang members was targeted "some immigrants."  


And yet the national media refuses to acknowledge that this behavior causes the "fake news" charge leveled at them frequently by Trump to resonate with voters.
