Gillibrand, Booker, Buttigieg Defend MS-13
There are plenty of valid criticisms of Donald Trump. There are plenty of honest, good-faith arguments against his policies. But that's not good enough for our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left. They hate him so much that they need to just make $#!+ up.
The following video from May 2018 is now making the rounds again:

Trump was talking about MS-13. The gang whose motto is "Kill, rape, control." He was calling them animals. Having since educated myself on MS-13's horrendous, repulsive crimes, I agree with him. If anything, the comparison is an insult to actual animals.
We went through this whole thing last year. The left thoroughly embarrassed themselves by claiming he was referring to all immigrants, not just the criminals who murder and rape.
But it's been an entire 11 months, so why not tell the same lie all over again?
Racist language like this has led to violence throughout the world’s history. No human being is an animal. We have to be better than this.https://t.co/TQ0MhJFGtq

You do not refer to human beings as animals. You just don’t.

- Seeking asylum is a legal right
- Language like this has historically been used to dehumanize, enslave, commit genocide, and carry out acts of violence around the world and across history. We won't stand for it. https://t.co/8yWHW7dDVk

If we had a functioning press corps, these presidential candidates would be asked to explain why they're defending MS-13. Or, if you want to give them the benefit of the doubt, why they're unknowingly defending MS-13. I suppose it's possible that they'll be asked, but I'm not holding out hope.
It's fine to disagree with Trump about our immigration problem. But if you side with a murderous criminal gang over the president of the United States, why should anybody vote for you?
