Tucker Rips Dems: 'By 2020, Defending Street Gangs Will Be a Key Plank' of Platform
Tucker Carlson blasted Democratic politicians and some in the media for criticizing President Donald Trump's labeling MS-13 members "animals."
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Trump should recognize the "divinity" in each human, and several other Democrats also took issue with the language.
Fake News Media had me calling Immigrants, or Illegal Immigrants, “Animals.” Wrong! They were begrudgingly forced to withdraw their stories. I referred to MS 13 Gang Members as “Animals,” a big difference - and so true. Fake News got it purposely wrong, as usual!

"By 2020, defending Central American street gangs will likely be a key plank in the Democratic platform," Carlson said.
He joked that prospective presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) would borrow Hillary Clinton's slogan of "stronger together" -- except with a muscular "strong" gangster in the background.
"It's more plausible than you think," he said.
Carlson played video of Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) telling MSNBC that Trump sees "everyone as MS-13" and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) claimed the president wants a "war with Latinos."
Carlson said that Democrats appear to see "questioning diversity" as "imperiling" their entire worldview.
He said such a move would be seen as "more unacceptable than murdering a teenager in Long Island."
