Hoover portrayed the MS-13 crimes as “affinity crimes,” whatever the hell those are, and then wondered into incoherence when talking about gang members.
[They] are individuals from other countries, sometimes there are citizens of the country, sometimes they’re not, of course Americans citizens get caught up and every violent criminal who is here should be deported, and they are on borrowed time.
She then awkwardly segued into what she thought was the president’s real intention other than law enforcement.
But there is a political move here to highlight … people who aren’t white, I think minorities, and to feed part of this really white nationalist, political support of Donald Trump. And if this overstates, I think, what the real problem is, we have violent crimes and criminal gangs here in the United States as well full of white people … This really wasn’t a law and order speech in that sense. This … really had a political undertone.”
Hoover did not, and likely could not, cite a specific example of a white criminal gang. So she just created a straw man where one doesn’t exist.
Truth be told, President Trump was extremely clear about the purpose of his remarks. But like any true liberal, Hoover was obviously distressed that we have an administration serious about enforcing immigration laws.
The president very explicitly vowed to “restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities” and “destroy the vile criminal cartel MS-13 and many other gangs.”
From now on, we’re going to enforce our laws, protect our borders, and support our police like our police have never been supported before.”
Also appearing was Washington Post reporter Philip Bump, who wears his Trump hatred on his sleeve. He asserted the rally was intended to “tie immigrants to crime.” Apparently, Bump is unfamiliar with crime statistics that show illegal immigrants are doing a pretty good job of tying themselves to crime without any government help.
Naturally, Hoover agreed with Bump.
Hoover is one of many Republican useful idiots CNN trots out to bash Trump and his supporters in exchange for pats on the head and cheers of affirmation from Democrats and liberal media elites.”
Speaking of liberal media elites, Hoover is married to Daily Beast editor John Avlon, who also bloviates on CNN and writes for Newsweek.
Hoover plays off the fact that she is the great-granddaughter of President Herbert Hoover and a former official in the administration of George W. Bush. While the Bush connection may satisfy CNN’s requirement for a token Republican, it also solidifies her position as a Never Trumper.
The would-be GOP pundit previously distinguished herself by taking part in “hands up, don’t shoot” lie perpetrated by media elites in the aftermath of the police shooting of thug Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
CNN thinks that non-whites are ok with gangs drug dealers rapist and murderers as long as they also are not white???
You don’t know what you are talking about.
No surprise there from the Dispictable lying Anti-American hated addicted news media networks
If she actually feels MS-14 is so Innocent she should go on a Picnic with them By Herself !
Ya can’t fix stupid.
