Father of Fake News, Angry Over Trump’s ‘Animal’ Comment, Once Called Trump an ‘Animal’

Now, he’s faux-outraged over Trump using the same word to describe MS-13 gang members.

A former cable news anchor known for spreading propaganda joined the outrage brigade at President Donald J. Trump’s use of the word “animal” in describing a vicious gang, despite once having called Trump an animal himself.

“Have you ever seen a caged animal pacing and baring its fangs? With President Trump lashing out, I think that what we are seeing here is fear, a deep fear of a world closing in. After all fear is what an animal in a cage really is feeling,” Rather said in a Dec. 2017 Tweet.

But Friday, Rather added to the chorus of faux-outraged media, political, and celebrity types who condemned Trump for using the word “animal” to describe vicious MS-13 gang members.

“The President likening human beings to animals is despicable. I’ve seen this playbook before, words weaponized into bloodshed. His sneering rhetoric must be denounced. All who remain silent stand on the side of an insidious and dangerous scapegoating of our fellow human beings,” he said.

Democrats once again defended the gang after an out-of-context clip was posted by a random Twitter user, claiming that Trump referred to asylum seekers as animals. In reality, it was the same clip in which Trump referred to MS-13 members as such.

The media, including the father of fake news himself, fell for it, hook, line, and sinker. As often chronicled on this site, American media is an awful, no-good, propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.

Rather even acknowledged that the clip was out of context – but did not delete his Tweet slamming POTUS.

“I am aware that comments of the President likening people to animals were made a while back in the context of gang members in the U S. I still believe the words are wrong and part of a larger and ongoing effort to create division over the complicated issue of immigration,” he said.
