Katie Pavlich schooled Marie Harf on the real meaning of “divisive” when the “Outnumbered” cohosts sparred over President Trump’s recent remarks about MS-13 gang members.
The mainstream media launched into an assault on Trump over comments about MS-13 gang-members coming into the country illegally, taking his words out of context and bashing him for calling immigrants “animals.”
Harf continued the spin on Fox News’ “Outnumbered” on Thursday.
“Donald Trump yesterday also called immigrants animals,” the former State Department spokeswoman under President Obama said.
Pavlich was not about to let Harf’s rhetoric go unchecked.
“No, he didn’t. He called MS-13 animals,” she interjected.
“No, read the quote,” Harf pushed back, to which Pavlich laughed, “I have the quote.”
“It’s not just about MS-13 members,” Harf continued on her ignorant narrative, actually claiming Trump has “used that term multiple times in the past about immigrants.”
Pavlich unequivocally informed her cohost, “Yes it is, Marie. That’s not true.”
“The sheriff has referred to MS-13, and the president responded about saying they’re animals and they are. Because — You should be accurate about what he said,” Pavlich instructed.
During a roundtable meeting with elected officials from California and the president on Wednesday, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims spoke about not being able to report violent MS-13 gang members whose motto is “Kill, Rape, Control.”
“There can be an MS-13 member I know about, but if they don’t reach a certain threshold I cannot tell ICE about them,” Mims told Trump. His response was clearly in reference to the gang members, but Trump Derangement Syndrome caused many liberal media outlets to hurl false accusations against the president.
Here is the full clip of Trump’s “animals” comments.
The CA Sheriff was lamenting not being able to report violent MS-13 gang members in her jail. Trump then called those gang members “animals.”

“We have people coming into the country…You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals,” Trump replied to Mims.
Pavlich called out Harf’s reference to Trump’s comment as “divisive,” dropping a truth bomb about what real divisiveness looks like.
Marie Harf: “It was divisive…”@KatiePavlich: “I think violent criminals like MS-13 are pretty divisive when they’re tearing up American communities, when they’re ripping people’s hearts out of them.”#Outnumbered pic.twitter.com/NhrUfIShC4

“I think violent criminals like MS-13 are pretty divisive when they’re tearing up American communities, when they’re ripping people’s hearts out of them,” she said.
Like many on the left, Harf refused to accept the truth, choosing to see and hear what she wanted in order to make her point.
“Let’s not use that word about people. We’re talking about a polarizing situation,” she said, referring back to the term “animals.”
Pavlich rebutted a few moments later by reading the White House transcript of the meeting.
“It’s not clear he’s referring to MS-13,” Harf insisted. “He should have been clear he was talking about MS-13.”
Pavlich made several attempts to get Harf to see the light, but did not succeed.
The segment caused a collective head-shaking on Twitter.
She is not very bright, needs to find other work.

Who in their right mind would sit there and attempt to make political hay over something so intuitive. Mind – blown.

Marie Harf makes me turn the channel every time. She acts like she is an authority, but she is a hack and an unlikable one. Fire her, Fox!

Harf treads in to idiot territory, she knows the area well, it’s where you go when there’s nowhere else to go for a Trump attack.
