Too Far? President Trump referred to dangerous MS-13 gang members as "animals" on Wednesday and anti-Trump media organizations conveniently took his comments out of context to make it appear that he was talking about illegal immigrants. And the liberal outlets don't plan on clarifying anytime soon. Trump was asked about the brutal gang by Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims when addressing California sanctuary city laws. Mims specifically said, "There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don't reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them." The president responded, "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." Did Trump admin go too far or is the media making this too big a deal? Guy & Marie debate.
Leaky Staffers! On Sunday Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, one of the beneficiaries of the constant leaking, wrote a piece all about why White House officials do it. He quoted a source saying "to be honest, it probably falls into a couple of categories. The first is personal vendettas. And two is to make sure there's an accurate record of what's really going on in the White House." Because so many White House aides and insiders are willing to be anonymous sources, the public has learned an awful lot about the inner workings of the White House. Barely a day goes by without a surprising or scandalous leak from the administration, be it about a powerful agency or the West Wing directly. So it's a constant source of tension between the press and the president. Guy & Marie sit down with Jonathan Swan to get a closer look on how this all goes down. Plus: Shannon Bream, FNC host of Fox News @night stops by to talk news of the day!
