The Left got their wires crossed Friday.

As reported by CNN, Mexican officials found at least 20 dead bodies — most of them burned — along the border, about 50 miles west of McAllen, Texas on Wednesday. Accompanying them were four charred trucks and a sedan along a dirt road in the border state of Tamaulipas.

Something crazy happened:

The incident appeared to be the result of a confrontation between two criminal gangs, Tamaulipas Attorney General Irving Barrios Mojica told journalist Carmen Aristegui in an interview for her radio show in Mexico. Aristegui is also the host of a show on CNN en Español.

He said some of the victims had been wearing “tactical vests with military-type uniforms” and bullets were found nearby that came from weapons typically only used by the military.

Barrios Mojica indicated the area where the bodies were found is being fought over by criminal gangs looking to traffic drugs, weapons and people.

Yet, the discovery was announced by the left-wing network just hours after it ran antireporter Jim Acosta’s claims of staggering border tranquility.

Quoth the raven:

“We’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger. There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence here in the McAllen, Texas, area. … [N]o sign of the national emergency that [President Donald Trump] has been talking about. As a matter of fact, it’s pretty tranquil down here.”

And there’s this:

What a dork.
