Donald Trump is being falsely accused by the lying mainstream media and lying Democrats of claiming that all immigrants are animals.

White House Press Secretary Sanders spoke out forcefully against the media brazen lie that Trump had called “immigrants” animals. She insisted he was referring to MS-13

CNS News reports, “Sanders on MS-13: Trump Didn’t Go Far Enough, They’re ‘Horrible, Horrible, Disgusting People.’

“This is one of the most vicious, deadly gangs that operates by the motto rape, control, and kill,” she said. “If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcome to.”

“Frankly, I don’t think the term the president used was strong enough,” said Sanders. “MS-13 has done heinous acts. It took an animal to stab a man a hundred times, decapitate him and rip his heart out. It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking with a bat 28 times, indenting part of her body.”

One could make a fair argument that Trump ought not call MS-13 members “animals,” but to characterize Trump’s comment as being about all immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, is plainly false. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took this one step further and likened my immigrant father and grandparents to members of a brutal gang. Yes, really.

I have to disagree with Payton. The Left can’t argue that “Trump ought not call MS-13 members ‘animals,’ after they had no objection to this tweet by Donald Trump:
