Chuck Todd Backs Trump For Calling MS-13 Gang Members Animals: ‘I Don’t Care Where They’re From (Mediaite)

President Donald Trump got an unlikely ally in his latest battle with the media over his comments labeling MS-13 gang members as “animals.”

Appearing on the Bernie & Sid Show on WABC Radio in New York on Friday, NBC’s Chuck Todd — whom the president has dismissively referred to as “Sleepy Eyed Chuck” — said that he’s in agreement with Trump over his use of the term “animals.”

“A lot of people have called violent anybody animals,” Todd said. “Anybody who is a violent criminal in my book can get called an animal. They’re mulling, killing, and raping people. I don’t care where they are from.”
