Did Pelosi Get the Memo About Trump's 'Animals' Remarks?

Several media outlets placed President Trump's MS-13 comments out of context Wednesday. During a meeting on sanctuary cities with federal immigration officials and local lawmakers, Trump said that the gang members were "animals." In their initial reporting, media like C-Span, the New York Times and NBC's Andrea Mitchell neglected to mention he was responding to a comment about the violent gang and thus readers assumed Trump was calling all illegal immigrants "animals." Some outlets, realizing their mistake, issued corrections.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi apparently didn't get the memo. At a Capitol Hill press briefing Thursday, Pelosi scolded Trump for his rhetoric.

"Every day you think you've seen it all," she said, shaking her head.

"Does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?" Pelosi asked. "Calling people animals is not a good thing."
