Fake News story about Trump calling all immigrants “animals” is why people hate the media

Fake News story about Trump calling all immigrants “animals” is why people hate the media

Was specific reference to brutal MS-13 gang, not all immigrants or all illegal immigrants, but you wouldn’t know that from the mainstream media headlines.

The MSM wonders why the majority of America cannot stand them. It’s probably because of the way they twist and edit President Donald Trump’s words.

The New York Times, The Washington Post, and others all claimed that Trump called “some unauthorized immigrants” animals during a rant. No. He referred to members of the dangerous MS-13 gang as animals.

What Trump Actually Said

CNN’s Jake Tapper posted the full context of Trump’s quotes:

Here is the video of the meeting:

MSM Reporting

Look at this:

At least Time published a correct headline!

Here’s what The New York Times wrote (emphasis mine):

As he has in numerous private meetings with his advisers at the White House, Mr. Trump used the session to vent about the nation’s immigration laws, calling them “the dumbest laws on immigration in the world.” He exhorted his administration to “do much better” in keeping out undesirable people, including members of transnational gangs like MS-13.


Eugene Scott at The Washington Post wrote that Trump’s reference to animals “evokes an ugly history of dehumanization.” Thing is, Scott INCLUDES THE TRANSCRIPT THAT PROVES TRUMP REFERENCED MS-13 MEMBERS AS ANIMALS.

Good Lord. If you want Trump to stop calling you FAKE NEWS then maybe you shouldn’t release FAKE NEWS. Just a thought.

Speaking of the media calling things something they aren’t, Mary, Criminal aliens are NOT immigrants.
Foreign citizens here on various visas are not immigrants, and it bothers me to see conservatives caving to the left and using their language to frame the debate.

People who enter the US to remain unlawfully are CRIMINAL ALIENS (Say it three times, go forth and sin no more) 🙂

Criminal aliens criminal aliens criminal aliens

Or maybe they just DO BELIEVE there is no difference between MS13 members and all other immigrants.
Or they believe MS13 is representative of all immigrants.

Talk about bigotry.

    And the fact that MS-13 animals terrorize other immigrants does not matter at all to the Dems/media/liberals.

    If you are an immigrant and an MS-13 guy rapes your daughter or robs your house or does other vicious things to you, that’s okay?

    The media lumps all immigrants together as criminals. And then attacks the President for differentiating between the bad guys and other immigrants.

There was a study done – I have a blog post on it ( ) – with the key takeaway being that conservatives can explain how liberals think, but liberals cannot explain how conservatives think. As a result, liberals assume that the only possible reason conservatives don’t agree with them is because we are evil, bigoted, racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, transphobic, and just not nice. As a result, when we conservatives see this kind of distorted news, our BS detectors are on high alert. Liberals actually find it very easy to believe any BS written about conservatives because it fits in with their view (however totally false it is) of what kind of people conservatives are.

    How comforting for you. You employ a malicious caricature to show how you understand liberals.

    Mac45 in reply to topcat69. | May 17, 2018 at 12:01 pm

    A staunch liberal is essentially mentally ill. He is delusional. His belief in his personal world-view can not be swayed by facts or empirical evidence. Why? Because he operates almost entirely upon feelings, not logic or empirical evidence. If he “feels” that the Sun rises in the West, then there is no way he will believe otherwise, even if he sees it for himself. He will find a way to justify his belief that the Sun is NOT rising in the West and, failing that, he will attempt to destroy anyone who challenges that belief. Now, delusion is not confined to liberals. It appears among conservatives as well. However, it is usually confined to a very small fringe element among the conservative population, while it seems to permeate the majority of the liberal population.

      Valerie in reply to Mac45. | May 17, 2018 at 4:16 pm

      Classical Liberal, here.

      America is the country with quintessential Liberal values, including equal rights under the laws and due process of law.

      I don’t have to change my language just because Rush Limbaugh and Anne Coulter throw verbal molotov cocktails and Sean Hannity wants to re-define Liberalism as Conservatism.

      I also don’t have to even bother to read yellowfool’s comments.

        Mac45 in reply to Valerie. | May 18, 2018 at 12:50 pm

        You may believe that you are a liberal, but the definitions for both liberal and conservative have taken a very hard left turn in the last 3 decades. What we now call conservatives would have have been defined as liberal moderates back in the 1980s. Today’s liberals would have been the liberal lunatic fringe, back then. What we called mainstream conservatives in the 60s, 70s and 80s are now thought of as the radical conservative fringe.

        And, yes, this nation was considered not only liberal, but radically so at the time of its founding. And, during the late 20th century equal rights and due process WERE championed by the liberals of that time. Today, however, the current tribe of liberals have no desire to support equality or due process, being much more inclined to support authoritarianism or anarchy. Sorry, baby, but you are now a CONSERVATIVE, embrace it.

JohnSmith100 | May 17, 2018 at 9:52 am

Actually, MSM is just as bad as MS13, both being filled with “animals”. Maybe we can place MSM animals in a cage with MS13 animals and see how things work out?

All illegals damage our country so I really don’t care what brush anyone paints them with as long as it isn’t rosy.

That said, expecting the msm to be honest is naive and foolish. Like sticking your hand into the fire over and over to see if it will burn you.

The only reason to read them is to know the enemy propaganda.

If Bush spied on Obama nothing else would be in the pages of Carlos Slim or the Jeff Bezos blogs. Crickets is what we get on real news.

You see this right here is why liberals deserve every ounce of Trump they get until 2024!

    YellowGrifterInChief in reply to mailman. | May 17, 2018 at 11:28 am

    But does the country? Where is your patriotism? A lazy, ignorant, narcissistic grifter is running the country.

    Will you cut off your nose to spite your face?

    oldgoat36 in reply to mailman. | May 17, 2018 at 12:14 pm

    Perfect illustration of the perfidy and dogmatic leftists, we saw and described Obama as a narcissist, which he demonstrated every time he gave a speech or interview, which he demonstrated with his actions. The left now calls Trump a narcissist, even though he has not demonstrated the characteristics which Obama did that showed his high order narcissism. The left has turned from being thinking and knowledgeable people into just regurgitating what they learn from the right.

    It is why they project their actions and deeds onto the right. It is why they use terms which they don’t truly understand but because the right had used it correctly on their man, they use it on our current President. They use labels in an effort to look intelligent, while they suffer a paucity of what the words they use even mean.

    I am always amazed at how shallow thinking and pernicious the leftists have become. These reports show it, and the poster above shows it. They are like lemmings following along pseudo intellectuals who make noises guilelessly spreading falsehoods that the useful idiots can parrot.

Henry Hawkins | May 17, 2018 at 11:03 am

MS-13 = Mara Salvatrucha = Salvadoran Gang. Their motto is “rape, control, kill.”

So, we see that MS-13 are not animals, but rather a sort of immigrant social club not unlike a college fraternity.

The Old Gray Lady is getting Senile and Hard of Hearing in her old age.

YellowGrifterInChief | May 17, 2018 at 11:18 am

the majority of America cannot stand them

You are not the majority. That is, unless, you are including the right wing media.

Trump has said in so many words that

‘They’re bringing drugs,’ crime and are ‘rapists’

So you should have some tolerance if the ‘media’ didn’t get the latest rant exactly correct.

I know he, sometimes, walks his comments back or sends out spokespeople to obfuscate.

Besides the right-wing is so good as an apology and outrage machine. You cheered loudly, but how dare us to imply anything from that

One other thought: If Trump actually read, studied and planned, he might actually accomplish something on immigration. But he doesn’t have to. All he has to do is rile up his base and distract it – Call & Response.

    healthguyfsu in reply to YellowGrifterInChief. | May 17, 2018 at 11:23 am

    The use of bold font really disguises your obfuscations. (where’s the sarc button)

    Why is it Trumps responsibility to do something about immigration, are not there about 535 other people that have to do something first???

      YellowGrifterInChief in reply to starride. | May 17, 2018 at 11:44 am

      Nothing seems to be his responsibility, but he takes credit for anything that is even remotely positive.

    Why is it Trumps responsibility to do something about immigration, are not there about 535 other people that have to do something first???

    According to polls, the majority of the country DOES hold the MSM in contempt. Polls since the middle of 2016 all the way up to the present show that approximately 75% of those polled feel that the MSM produces “fake news” and is not reliable.

    Also, illegal immigrants do bring crime. Just by entering and remaining illegally, they are violating the law. This does not even to begin to take into consideration the numbers that engage in other criminal acts while in this country, including homicide, rape, human and drug trafficking and other acts. They are also used extensively as drug mules, by coyotes employed by the drug cartels. And finally, they do have within their ranks rapists, including child rapists.

    I realize that you have a pathological, obsessive hatred for Trump. But, be careful not to let that delude you as to reality. Illegal aliens are NOT saints who make this country a better place. They have NO allegiance to the US. If they did, they would have entered and remained here legally and applied for citizenship. Instead they remain here taking jobs from American citizens, using government assistance programs and sending billions of dollars out of the country to family members abroad. No, illegal aliens are a net drain on the resources of the USA. Sorry to disrupt your world view.

      YellowGrifterInChief in reply to Mac45. | May 17, 2018 at 12:55 pm

      You do have points.

      But there is nothing pathological about my dislike. It is based on a lifetime of observations. I am about his age and a New Yorker. Before, you ask – it is not envy.

      It is not obsessive. It is just reactivated many times a day – like a rude neighbor who constantly blasts bad music, has ill-trained dogs and lets his smelly garbage accumulate in his yard. It is impossible to ignore. I can’t call the cops or move.

      I easily avoided his BS when he was a civilian. I couldn’t ignore him completely, since he was so persistent in seeking publicity. But I could roll my eyes and laugh at him. He was a minor irritant – like a mosquito bite from a non-disease carrying species.

      I even did consulting work for client with offices in Trump Tower. Honestly, I was prepared to be wowed by Trump Tower. But it is all brass and glitz. The atrium is sterile. The shops are mainly stalls! It is without class and the building is his signature! I go in and out of office buildings regularly. So I have exhibits from which to judge.

YellowGrifterInChief | May 17, 2018 at 11:32 am

Incisive criticism – Not.

I repeat – If Trump actually read, studied and planned, he might actually accomplish something. But he never will. /Not sarcasm

    healthguyfsu in reply to YellowGrifterInChief. | May 17, 2018 at 11:55 am

    Point stands…blatant and intentional misrepresentation is called out and all you can do is obfuscate.

      YellowGrifterInChief in reply to healthguyfsu. | May 17, 2018 at 12:02 pm

      Please be specific. Where did I obfuscate? Does he read? Does he study? Does he plan? Did I not include the exact quote he spoke when he announced he was running from president?

      Do you even know what obfuscate means?

        healthguyfsu in reply to YellowGrifterInChief. | May 17, 2018 at 3:41 pm

        Of course, I know what it means. You are attempting to pull a look at me and draw attention away from the point made in the article you are commenting on.

        It’s been your M.O. to be Mr. irrelevant around here since you showed up, yellow man. Keep working the lines, good comrade.

    ” T-rump might actually accomplish something.”

    Someone hasn’t been keeping up with current events.

    But do go on. I so enjoy reading analysis from the people who still can’t figure out how he beat them.

      YellowGrifterInChief in reply to Fen. | May 17, 2018 at 12:19 pm

      Then why is he ranting?

      I follow current events closely enough that I know what will be claimed that he has accomplished. You people have been doing enough victory dances. But has NK denuclearized? Has Iran cried ‘uncle’? Is Ukraine improved? Do we have better relations with the EU? Do we have a new and improved NAFTA treaty or any new trade agreement (Hint we have one). Don’t tell me what they will do. Tell me what he has done.

      You can tell me that he hasn’t had time. Fine. Then quit the fewken victory dances until he has accomplished them.

      I know he has rolled back anything done by Obama that he could and picked judges from a list provided by others. Fine. But that didn’t take effort, thought, research, or planning. Literally, any puppet or clown could do that.

        “I know he has rolled back anything done by Obama that he could and picked judges from a list provided by others.”

        Exactly right. THAT is what those who voted for him wanted him to do. The Trump voters are tired of electing people who say that they will do this and that and then get into office and either refuse to do it, or worse, do the exact opposite. Trump has kept as many of his promises as he could through unilateral action. Now, we have to rely upon members of the Congress to assist him in keeping those promises which he can not manage unilaterally. If the existing members of Congress refuse to do that, they might have to be replaced with members who will. And, that is what terrifies the Establishment. That politicians might actually be answerable to their constituents rather than anyone with sufficient money to buy their support.

          YellowGrifterInChief in reply to Mac45. | May 17, 2018 at 1:19 pm

          Maybe you will elect more compliant legislators. Maybe the left will elect an opposition. There is no sense speculating on that. I have learned my lesson.

          But no matter how many you elect, the leader is lazy, thoughtless, prejudiced and thin-skinned. He does not plan. He is reactive.

          He is not strategic. ZTE is a perfect example. No matter how you paint it, how is it that he didn’t know the repercussions? He got his deek stepped on. If he was negotiating, how come he announced has change of mind in a tweet without any related concessions from the Chinese? What are the alternative penalties for violating our boycott of Iran? Shouldn’t they have been tweeted out, too?

          For that matter, what is the plan for Iran? Either the world will ignore our sanctions, or Iran will go back to building nuclear weapons. What if they do? Are we going to war with them after we botched Iraq? Are our allies going to join us? Are Russia and China going to stand by? Did he fail to notice that Muqtada al-Sadr is now the biggest power broker in Iraq?

          We would have all been better off if he would have taken a job as a panelist on Fox & Friends.

          Mac45 in reply to Mac45. | May 18, 2018 at 1:14 pm

          Sorry to take so long to respond.

          So, let’s say that you are a doctor. You decide to become a CEO of a multinational corporation, something for which you have no training. what do you do? You rely upon people within the company to assist you in running it. But, what happens if those people resent you and active work against your succeeding? How long does it take for you to learn how to run the business? A month, six months, a year, five years? That is Trump’s position.

          Now Trump may be all the things that you claim, but he is not totally reactive. He is reactive if attacked or thwarted. He is, essentially, a counter puncher.

          Now, ZTE. His actions against ZTE was leverage. He used it to get the Chinese to lever Kim to the bargaining table. When XI did that, trump backed off on ZTE, but did not totally reverse the sanctions, as a quid pro quo. That was the deal. If Kim reneges on his part of the deal, the action against ZTE is still on the table and can be expanded. Also, the other trade actions against China are still in place or under-weigh. Now, Trump knows that he can’t trust the Chinese and this means that there are going to be increased safeguards in any other lessening of trade actions against Chinese interests for Chinese assistance to the US interests.

          Now, about Iran. If the Obama administration had not rescued the Iranian leadership in 2015, we might not be faced with your questions. However, with sanctions back in place, it puts a lot of pressure on the Iranian leadership and emboldens the internal resistance. And, it does not require applying military resources to the problem. Besides, the Arab Gulf states and Israel are making noises about putting military pressure on Iran.

          The 2013 invasion f irawq did exactly what it was supposed to do as well as providing the bonus of bringing in most of the Islamic jihadists in the Middle East into the country for us to kill. If the initial plan had been followed and the Bush Administration had not gotten involved in nation-building and the Obama administration had not abandoned the country, the US would have had 40-80,000 troops sitting on four huge bases which we built in that country. This would have very likely stopped the expansion of ISIL into the vacuum we created by pulling out of Iran as well as kept a lot of pressure on Iran. All of this happened BEFORE Trump was elected. The man has been in office for just over ONE YEAR. You can try to blame all these ills on Trump. But, that is not accurate.

        “has NK denuclearized? Has Iran cried ‘uncle’? Is Ukraine improved? Do we have better relations with the EU? Do we have a new and improved NAFTA treaty or any new trade agreement” Taking these in order: no, NK has not yet denuclearized. But it did nuclearize under BO, no Uncle cry yet, but I see in the WSJ that Maersk is stopping shipping to them, our relations with the EU are heavily influenced by the absurd immigration policies of France and Germany. Sweden is a hell-hole. Brexit is a sign of sanity. Ukraine is in the Russian sphere of influence and we have little influence there. So you admit NAFTA can be improved. And do you really think that BO ALONE picked people for judge ships? Boy are you naive.

          YellowGrifterInChief in reply to 02sbxstr. | May 17, 2018 at 6:33 pm

          Excuses, hypotheses, suppositions, possibilities, hopes, guesses, unfounded beliefs – but absolutely no reason for a victory dance.

          So far the only thing Trump has accomplished is to alienate most of the world. If I remember correctly, America was great when we led and others gladly allied with us.

          Maybe it will all come up roses. I am not in the prediction business. But there is absolutely no reason for a victory dance.

          By the way, I think Iran can build nuclear weapons without Maersk. There really isn’t any secret and they learned from Iraq to bury their facilities deep.

          Ironically, their Ayatollah had declared nuclear weapons un-Islamic. The Obama plan was to delay them and get them to voluntarily stop. Trump will get them to accelerate. Now you can start dancing.

        HEY Commie Grifter:

        Hillary Clintoon will never be president!!!

        #1 accomplishment – Thanks President Trump!

Media: “Stop dehumanizing people, you bitter clingers sleeping on your sister in your double wide”

    YellowGrifterInChief in reply to Fen. | May 17, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    Why the quote marks? Are those exact transcriptions? Do you realize you are doing exactly what you deplore (intended)?

    Media is plural. Are you implying that WP, NYTimes and The New Yorker are all the same? For one thing, The New Yorker is renowned for its meticulous fact-checking. They are very careful to separate their opinion from their long-form journalism. No one can stop you from dismissing them. But facts are facts. Ignoring them usually results in a cost. Unfortunately, the costs are not always borne by the denier. Trump counts on that.

They tried this smear during the campaign… it’s a re-hash of the “Bad Hombres” meme.

Go ahead MSM… keep on with the lies and getcha’ four more years of Trump.
