AKA why conservatives continue to lash out at the so-called leftist mainstream media.
Let’s open with the New York Times:
“President Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting on Wednesday, warning in front of news cameras that dangerous people were clamoring to breach the country’s borders and branding such people “animals.”
Mr. Trump’s comments came during a round-table discussion with state and local leaders on California’s so-called sanctuary laws, which strictly limit communication between local law enforcement and federal immigration officers, and which the Trump administration is suing to invalidate. It was hardly the first time the president has spoken in racially fraught terms about immigrants, but it underscored his anger about unchecked immigration…”
Following this hard hitting expose is a tweet from NBC’s Andrea Mitchell:
Now let’s see what ACTUALLY happened:
“Sheriff Margaret Mims: There can 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: We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — we’re stopping a lot of them. 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.”
To twist this into anything other than Trump speaking directly about MS13 is journalistic malpractice. And this is just one more example of why conservatives continue to lash out against traditional media outlets.
