Default MSNBC star Joy Reid downplays MS-13, says only Fox News viewers have heard of dangero

Yet another reason no one takes MSNBC seriously.

How can this moron claim with a straight face no one except Fox News viewers knows who MS-13 are?

Joy is the Washington Generals of journalists.

MSNBC star Joy Reid downplays MS-13, says only Fox News viewers have heard of dangerous gang | Fox News

Often-misinformed MSNBC star Joy Reid is under the impression that international criminal gang MS-13 isn’t a major issue and the only people that have even heard of the thugs are regular viewers of Fox News.

During Tuesday’s State of the Union address, President Trump kicked off the immigration portion of his speech by detailing the horror of two teenage girls who were killed by MS-13, an international crime gang comprised mainly of El Salvador immigrants, while their parents were in the building.

“Two precious girls were brutally murdered while walking together in their hometown,” Trump said. “Four men associated with MS-13 have been charged with the killings… I am calling on the Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminals, to break into our country.”

During MSNBC’s coverage of the State of the Union, Reid mocked the president’s remarks while analyzing the speech with “Hardball” host Chris Matthews.

“He gives a speech tonight, in which he makes it sound like the biggest issue in the United States, the biggest threat is MS-13, a gang nobody that doesn't watch Fox News has ever heard of. So he makes it sound like they're the biggest threat.”

Reid said Trump simply mentioned the deadly gang to accommodate the “audience he wants applause from.”

Well, it turns out Reid needs to consume more news.

A search of “MS-13” on CNN’s website reveals dozens of articles that mention the gang. The gang has been mentioned in an assortment of New York Times headlines in recent memory, such as a June 2017 article titled, “39 members of MS-13 are arrested, authorities say,” and a July 2017 article headlined, “Trump will visit Long Island in the wake of MS-13 gang arrests.”

If the Times is too high-brow for the MSNBC star, USA Today has also covered the gang extensively. A video on the site from Nov. 2017 is headlined, “MS-13 gang member arrested in Maryland murder.”

USA Today even covered the gang back in 2012 when the Obama-era feds decided to label MS-13 a criminal group.

"This designation allows us to strike at the financial heart of MS-13 and is a powerful weapon in our fight to dismantle one of the most violent, transnational criminal organizations operating today," then-ICE Director John Morton told the paper.

“MS-13 is an example of some of the worst of criminal gang behavior,” Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told Matthews on the very same show on which Reid appeared.

News organizations, including the Washington Post, HuffPost, The New Yorker, The Hill, New York Post, PBS, New York Daily News, Los Angeles Times, Daily Mail, Time and Slate have all covered the dangerous gang.

If Reid doesn’t consume any of the aforementioned outlets, surely she remembers the coverage that her own network dedicated to Trump July 2017 speech to law enforcement officials on Long Island, N.Y. when he famously warned police officers not to be “too nice” when arresting “thugs.”

Well, somebody should tell Ms. Reid that the president was referring to MS-13 members when he made the controversial remarks.

I just love it that these leftist tools are so far off the deep end that they have to make up things they know are completely false to attack Trump. He is living rent free in their heads. While there are things about Trump I wish he would change, I love the fact that he is making the left go completely off the rails in their resistance to him.

My heart breaks for this family.

Mom of teen slain by MS-13 details powerful, heartfelt meeting with President Donald Trump

[quote]Evelyn Rodriguez, the mother of a teenage girl killed by MS-13 gang members, spoke out about what it was like to attend President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

The deadly gang murdered Rodriguez’s daughter, 16-year-old Kayla Cuevas, in 2016.

The same gang members also murdered Cuevas’s best friend, Nisa Mickens, who was just one day away from turning 16 years old.

According to authorities, three out of four suspects charged in the girls’ murders were in the country illegally.

Rodriguez spoke with WCBS-TV in an interview that aired Thursday, where she talked about the moving experience she had visiting with Trump as one of his special guests at the State of the Union.

“It’s just an experience that no words can explain,” Rodriguez, who received a standing ovation from Congress during the address, told WCBS. “You just felt that what we are doing is being recognized, being heard.”

She added that when she received the invite to attend the address, people told her not to go because she is Hispanic and, therefore, at risk of being “used” by the administration.

She went despite people’s warnings and added, “I did not feel that at all.”

“[Trump] kissed me on my forehead, which I was like, ‘My God, I am just a little pea in a pod,’ but he did acknowledge and I felt his connection that he felt my pain,” Rodriguez explained.

She added that her meeting with First Lady Melania Trump was just as moving.

“Her eyes got teary, you felt the realness, it wasn’t fake,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez previously told the Washington Times that she felt “honored” to be invited to the State of the Union, and said it was a “great privilege.”

Think about what Joy Reid's words mean. That only viewers of the FOX channel know about one of the most vile gang groups in America. Is she admitting her news organization completely failed to bring such news to the attention of their viewers?

Or is she admitting total ignorance of the 10,000 Gang members here who prey upon Both US citizens and our illegal Latino communities with savage cruelty?

MS-13's motto is "Rape, Kill, Control"...

I can see why some like Joy Reid need to defend them...
