White House press secretary Sarah Sanders doubled down Thursday on President Donald Trump’s Wednesday comments referring to members of MS-13 as “animals.”

During Thursday’s press briefing, CBS’ Steven Portnoy asked Sanders if Trump believes “some immigrants” are animals, following a media storm that took Trump’s comments completely out of context and asserted he was talking about all immigrants.

“I want to ask you because so many people around the country are talking about it over the past 24 hours, what did the president mean when he said some immigrants aren’t people, they’re animals,” Portnoy asked.

Sanders reiterated that the president was referring to MS-13 gang members and explained the gang’s history of violence.

“This is one of the most vicious and deadly gangs that operates by the motto of rape, control and kill,” Sanders continued. “Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough. MS-13 has done heinous acts. It took an animal to stab a man 100 times and 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. And it took an animal to kidnap and rape a 13-year-old Houston girl.”

Sanders added, “The president should continue to use platform and everything he can do under the law to stop these kinds of horrible, horrible, disgusting people.”

      I agree with you all. If those that think it isn’y right to call the MS-13 gang members animals, I will do you one better. I think it is an insult to animals because they do not do what these EVIL SUB HUMANS do. And that is all they are are SUB HUMANS. Just check and see what kinds of evil crimes they have committed. Frank, I think you are correct in sending some of these so called reporters to interview these SUB HUMANS.

      May 18, 2018 at 7:31 am

      The reporter understood English just fine. The problem is that Trump really did make an ugly generalization (at the time, he did NOT specify that he was talking about a gang), and then tried to walk it back when it caused an uproar.

      The guy has no filter. He just blurts out whatever he thinks will get him the response he wants, and, as often as not, does a 180 degree turnaround 20 minutes later. And, judging from the chorus of lookalike reactions here, he has a lot of fans who never question his inconsistencies and untruths.

      • Julia Sanford

        May 18, 2018 at 10:43 pm

        Well, I heard it when he said it and he has nothing to walk back. Apparently, you didn’t hear it because he made it very clear that he was referring to MS-13, so you can stop trying to twist and lie like the reporters you are relying on.

If you had a daughter or young teen you would be very wary yourself. And he was a journalist of all people he should know who the M_13 gang is. Is he stupid?? He was just being facetious. Just trying to cause remarks that are not true. If he is that stupid then he doesn’t know much. Even a 14 yr old would know how animalistic that gang is.

      Plato: after reading a few of your offerings, I arrived at the logical conclusion that you are as dumb as you sound. You are the typical Trumpaholics, incapable accepting anything Trump or any Republican says. If you believe that clownish reporter didn’t know to whom Trump was referring, you must have spent most of your adult life with your head in the sand (what’s it like down there?). You certainly sound like a paid up supporter of the American Media who regularly imply or state that the U. S. government is being run autocratically by a thuggish indivual unfit for his great office. Robert de Niro wants to send the president to prison in a comedy skit; Kathy Griffin, whose opening gambit was a still picture of the president’s head, is now lampooning his entourage in predictable simulations. Desperately unoriginal and mouthy occupants of late-night purported comedy — Bill Maher, Colbert, Kimmel and Cnelsea Handler — imagine that shouting rehashed denigrations of the president and his family are amusing. It is a bore; it isn’t working, and history moves on. The U. S. media have shot their bolt for 34 months since he announced his candidacy for president. The media threw their obligation to retain some element of fairness and detachment aside, and gambled everything on poisoning the wells and polluting public opinion so badly that the people’s choice would be overturned. They gambled and they have lost. And you are one of the losers. Donald Trump is president! Live with it.

    There’s a connection between MS 13 &

    Everything Sarah said MS 13 does comes from Search, for example, “Sweden r.ape” to learn about Tahhurash Gamea for teaching women not to leave the house alone uncovered. Gang r.ape is punishment. In EU, women are told it’s racist to complain & infer there’s something inferior about a r.ape “culture” (Islm). Women are 1/2 worth of men. There’s no age limit for brides or sex slaves.

    Beheading is a favorite technique of islm. Search “ behead,” & be sure to click “images” at the top. Violnt gangs? Why do you think BLM gangs learned to punish apostasy with death? Search “Germany gang machete” to see how Islm does it in countries that have taken in “refugees.”

    What about sex slave trafficking? Search “UK sex grooming ring” for Islm’s version, & the following link for MS 13’s:

    MS 13 smuggles Islmic terorists into USA. Drugs, too.

    Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

    I would hope that sensible people would realize that MS-13 is a revenge fueled, bigoted and hateful organization. Anyone who thinks they are innocent doves should do a little research. They have devastated huge portions of Central and South American. They abide by a code of pain, murder and humiliation. They have no conception of the value of human life unless it is by their monsterous scale.

    The President was dead on in calling them animals. They prey on our society because we are weak in their eyes. Gangs are a detrimental part of our society, and MS-13, and it’s associates are merely the worst of a very nasty barrel.
