Writer: I Would Rather My Daughter Date an MS-13 Member Over a Republican
A writer said that he'd rather have his daughter date a member of the murderous MS-13 gang than a Republican.
Rob Rousseau, who also stated that he does not have actually have a daughter, expressed his preference in a tweet last week.
I would rather my daughter dated a member of MS-13 than a member of the Republican Party

"You want the best for your children. Not the worst," Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said on "Fox & Friends."
"MS-13's motto: Kill, rape, control ... That's what you want dating your daughter?"
Ryder said he's witnessed the violence of MS-13 firsthand on Long Island, and that his department investigated six homicides by the gang last year.
"I would love for [Rousseau] to sit down and speak with the victims' families," he said. "Tell them that he would rather have an MS-13 [member] date his daughter."

Rousseau's tweet came just a day after President Trump described members of the gang as "animals" during a roundtable at the White House.
Trump's remarks were taken out of context by much of the media, which ran stories that claimed he used the term to describe illegal immigrants more broadly.
"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 had said.
