Sarah Sanders had the pleasure on Thursday to hammer the media and Liberals for spreading lies about President Donald Trump’s comment where he referred to MS-13 gang members as “animals,” on Wednesday.
The Democratic Party and several mainstream media outlets purposely took the president’s statement out of context, trying to claim that he was talking about immigrants; when anyone who read and watched the original statement understood that he was talking about MS-13.
Steven Portnoy, of CBS, asked the White House press secretary about the issue, “I want to ask you because so many people around the country are talking about it over the past 24 hours, what did the president mean when he said some immigrants aren’t people, they’re animals.”
Sanders responded, “If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcome to. Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough.”
“It took an animal to stab a man 100 times and decapitate him and rip his heart out,” Sanders continued. “It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking with a bat, 28 times, indenting part of her body. And it took an animal to kidnap and rape a 13-year-old Houston girl.”
