DAILYKENN.com -- Unable to uncover anything of substance with which to eviscerate Donald Trump, the far-left extremist media is scraping barrel bottoms to discredit the president.
When Trump referred to the feral MS-13 gang as animals, for example, the media pounced. Press Sec. Sarah Sanders noted that Trump's characterization was too tempered. He didn't go far enough, she concluded.
Apparently the mainstream media is unaware they are being baited by Trump.
The gang's motto is "Rape, control; kill." That, however, hasn't raised the ire of fake feminists who prefer to characterize white me as a "rape culture."

The White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, has defended and elaborated upon Donald Trump’s description of undocumented gang members in the US as “animals”.
The president had referred on Wednesday to US of the vicious El Salvador-based gang, MS-13, during an immigration meeting in Washington. But the comment was made during a with California elected and law enforcement officials, and was taken in some quarters as a broader smear suggesting that undocumented migrants pose a violent threat.
Speaking at the White House press briefing on Thursday afternoon, Sanders said: “I don’t think the term the president used is strong enough.” She added: “Frankly I think the term animal doesn’t go far enough and I think the president should continue to use his platform and everything he can do under the law to stop these types of horrible, horrible, disgusting people.”
At the meeting about sanctuary cities on Wednesday, Trump said of members of the gang: “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 has long made the gang, based in El Salvador, a target of his rhetoric. He visited Long Island to talk about the gang in 2017 and even explicitly mentioned the group in his 2018 State of the Union speech.
However, Trump’s comments sparked controversy. Catherine Cortez Masto, a Democratic senator from Nevada, “@realDonaldTrump, would you speak that way about your ancestors? Let me tell you something: When you attack immigrants, you’re attacking me. You’re attacking my grandfather who crossed the Rio Grande to pursue the American Dream. RT to tell Pres. Trump you stand with immigrants!”
This was echoed by the Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell of California, who tweeted: “IF you are a decent person and were in a meeting where @realDonaldTrump called immigrants ‘animals,’ you will denounce him NOW. Otherwise, what makes you any different?”
However, Sanders seemed to welcome questions on the topic in the White House briefing room on Thursday. “If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13 they are more than welcome to,” said the spokeswoman. She noted that the organization is “one of the most vicious and deadly gangs that operates by the motto ‘rape, control, kill’.”
