I’m consistently amazed that the media tries to run with already disproved narratives, but watching Press Secretary Sarah Sanders run them down like a wounded gazelle when they pop their head up is very entertaining.
Sanders was asked about President Donald Trump’s comments earlier today by a reporter who, like many in the mainstream, purposefully attempted to take his description of the violent MS-13 gang as “animals” to mean all immigrants. Sanders responded by bringing a verbal gun to a knife fight.
“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,” she said.
Sanders highlighted how MS-13 is known for their brutal murders, including one instance where a man was stabbed 100 times, decapitated, and had his heart ripped out. She also spoke on the drugging and raping of a 14 year old girl that MS-13 was responsible for.

MS-13 is one of the most violent gangs in America. Their motto is quite literally, “kill, rape, control,” and they do this to great effect. They are responsible for throwing many women into sex slavery, and illegal drug distribution on top of their murders. As I wrote earlier today, calling them “animals” doesn’t remotely go far enough in describing the nightmarish situations this gang has put people in.
It’s time the media and the left began to lower their level of hatred for Trump. Being against a gang such as MS-13 is something that everyone should be on board with. This gang is not a political game. People are being raped and murdered, and they want to somehow trip up Trump via public opinion to score points against him, the victims be damned.
