Nancy Pelosi and the threat of her once again becoming Speaker of the House is an absolute Godsend to Republicans. Every time she opens her mouth, something stupid comes out.
Pelosi flat-out defended the rapists and murderers that make up MS-13 from the President’s harsh rhetoric saying “Calling people animals is not a good thing.”
The media has spent the better part of the last 12 hours trying to convince viewers that President Trump referred to immigrants as “animals,” when he was clearly and specifically speaking about violent thugs.
“There is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person,” Pelosi said, feigning an air of religious adherence.
“So 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 questioned.
What worth is there exactly to a group of people who are this violent?
“Calling people animals is not a good thing,” Pelosi finished.
Nay, defending animals is not a good thing.
Unbelievable… Pelosi straight up defending MS-13.

While Pelosi was busy defending the animals, a contrast in styles was being exhibited at a White House press briefing.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders slammed the media for intentionally leaving context out of Trump’s remarks, then doubled down by saying the President hadn’t gone far enough.
“This is one of the most vicious and deadly gangs that operates by the motto of rape, control and kill,” Sanders said. “Frankly, I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough.”
Q: “What did the president mean when he said that some immigrants are non-people, they’re animals?”

“MS-13 has done heinous acts,” Sanders continued. “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.”
By all means, Ms. Pelosi, continue to defend people that do these vile things. We’ll continue to side with those who refer to them as animals.
