CNN “New Day” co-host Alisyn Camerota set social media on fire when she tried to equate the idea of FBI informants in the brutal gang MS-13 and President Trump’s claim that his campaign was spied on. She was trying to justify Spygate and failed at it.
“You believe that the FBI planted a spy in the Trump campaign. Are you using the term informant and spy interchangeably?” Camerota, a former Fox News co-host, asked Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and formerly President George W. Bush’s political director. “When the FBI uses a source in MS-13 to find out what they’re doing is that a spy or a source, an informant to figure out what MS-13 is doing?” she continued.

“Do you want the FBI to figure out when someone is doing something untoward?” the CNN host then asked. “Why are you saying they’re spying when they’re trying to find out if Russia infiltrated?”
“Look if you’re going to equate, I would call it spying,” Shlapp shot back. “And here’s the big difference, Donald Trump is not MS-13, Alisyn! MS-13 is a gang that creates havoc in our society. Donald Trump was the duly nominated Republican candidate.” Nor is his campaign a criminal organization. Informants are placed undercover in such organizations to gather enough evidence of criminal wrongdoing. A spy is there to just plain collect information and doing so in this case is illegal. Camerota knows all this. She claimed that the FBI was not targeting Trump in the 2016 investigation, an assertion Schlapp would not accept. Good for him. So they did it to protect Trump? More of that crap? No one believes that.
If the Republicans are paying attention, they better pounce on this misstep. It would look great in an RNC ad, just as Nancy Pelosi did over her love of MS-13. Twitter erupted over what many saw as an effort to conflate the two and draw some kind of comparison between President Trump and MS-13, while hoping it would stick. The mainstream media has been called out in the past for targeting Trump and sympathizing with MS-13. This is more of the same dishonest propaganda.
Trump was asked about the murderous gang recently 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.” This prompted the President to tweet, “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.”
It was obvious to everyone that Trump was referring to MS-13, but the left deliberately tried to spin it as attacking all illegal immigrants. Especially the media and CNN was one of the worst. This demonic horde has been responsible for some of the grisliest murders in recent memory, satanic worship and unbelievable brutality. Trump’s reply to Mims was edited and taken out of context to forward a political agenda. C-SPAN tweeted a video that did not show Mims’ comment, editing down the conversation with Trump’s answer and the caption: “President Trump during California #SanctuaryCities Roundtable: ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’” The video was viewed more than 2.6 million times in less than 24 hours.
The New York Times, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News and CNN all followed with similar tweets – with most of the content coming after it was well publicized that Trump was specifically referring to MS-13 gang members. Some of them deleted their tweets after being caught. None of them apologized in a meaningful way.
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota told conservative activist Matt Schlapp that it was appropriate for the FBI to treat the Trump campaign like the Central American gang. No, it’s not and she just admitted to the FBI spying on the Trump campaign. Dumb as a box of rocks. I like the line from Cry Partisan, “Dear @GOPChairwoman, you’ve been given a gift on a plate? Use it, meme it and execute it with vicious precision.” Just do it.

@CNN's Alisyn Camerota in her interview with Max Schlapp compares the Trump campaign to MS-13.
No wonder CNN has lost 25% of their viewers in May ‘18 vs. May ‘17 and doesn’t have a show ranked in the top 25.

Unbelievable. @CNN is actually comparing MS-13 (the ones we're not allowed to call "animals") to the Trump campaign. If they actually wanted to HELP Trump. @alisyn_camerota, they would have TOLD him that this is what was happening.

But doesn't the Left consider MS-13 as decent human beings? https://t.co/5aozXjAuGU

This woman, Alisyn Camarota, is epically stupid. An Informant is someone Already on the Inside (like an MS-13 member) who gives up info. When you attempt to Insert someone into a group to extract info covertly, that person is called a SPY! https://t.co/VaNkUoCg6e

Unbelievable. CNN is 100% defending use of police state tactics on political opposition, while also drawing equivalence between Trump & MS-13.
'Enemy of the People'? https://t.co/q1o49Q4L6h

When Matt asks her if they did the 3 things and she didnt want to answer. On top of that MS-13 has informants or spies inside them by the FBI because they commit crimes. There was no crime committed by the Trump org. So why the informant/spy? https://t.co/Pnbv7zr0VO
