‘So Inhumane’: Pelosi Scolds Trump, Claims He Called Undocumented Immigrants ‘Animals’ (Video)

Nancy Pelosi defends “animal” MS-13 gang members…

It appears it wasn’t just the mainstream media that purposely took President Trump’s remark about dangerous MS-13 gang members completely out of context.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also piled on after Trump described the brutal gang members as “animals” during a roundtable at the White House on Wednesday.

“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,” Trump said.

During her weekly press briefing on Thursday, Pelosi said Trump’s comments were a “new low.”

“When the President of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘these aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?” Pelosi said.

“Every day you think that you’ve seen it all, along comes another manifestation of why their policies are so inhumane,” she said. “Calling people animals is not a good thing.”

Fox News reported:

Media outlets including C-SPANthe New York TimesABC NewsNBC NewsCBS News and CNN did not put Trump’s words in context or ran with stories claiming he used the term “animals” to describe illegal immigrants more broadly. Some outlets later corrected or clarified their reporting, but others – including The Washington Post – did not.

Pelosi apparently didn’t get the memo, claiming the president had generally referred to undocumented immigrants as “animals.”
