Forgive me for being quiet the last couple of days, but I’ve been a bit under the weather. I wasn’t paying attention to anything going on in the world.
This morning, I was checking what I missed on Twitter to see if there was any news worth looking into.
What I found was shocking, and yet entirely expected: Donald Trump was speaking at a roundtable on sanctuary cities, and the media mischaracterized what he said in an effort to make it seem way, way more horrifying.
If you saw the event, then you know it was about immigration. That’s what the media knew, too. Suddenly, we see this quote popping up all over the place.
President Trump during California #SanctuaryCities Roundtable: “These aren’t people. These are animals.”
