As Twitchy has reported, pretty much the same people who fell for this lie when it was first spread on social media last May are falling for it again, and some 2020 contenders are making sure to go on record that they support what Mark Elliott is saying here:

Again, we already did this last year and anyone who listened to President Trump’s entire statement in context (it’s not hard to find) knows that he was talking about members of MS-13, not “people asking for asylum.”
Not surprisingly, Republican strategist and CNN contributor Ana Navarro had to jump in and add her two cents:
This is journalist, @TifaniRoberts comforting a small boy on the border. He was shot in the throat by Ortega’s thugs in Nicaragua. This little boy is seeking asylum in the United States. His name is William. Trump calls him “animal”. pic.twitter.com/avGe5mWctH

Yeah, that’s right, President Trump is calling this small boy an animal because he’s seeking asylum in the United States. Uh-huh.
You're lying, Ana. Everyone knows it.

Does this even work? To misrepresent like this?

THAT LITTLE KID IS A MEMBER OF MS-13?!?!?!
— Atlas Pounced (@DaveMBP) April 6, 2019
I didn’t realize he was a gang member.
— mickbrizzie 🌀 (@mickbrizzie) April 6, 2019
If this is true, then Ana must believe this young boy is MS-13. Wow
— B-Ray Presto (@BradPresta) April 6, 2019
Well apparently this kid is a MS-13 gang member because those are the only ones President Trump called by their rightful name "Animals" more and likely it was these Animals that harmed him, you're a poor excuse for a decent person

Serious question: How can someone lie so blatantly on social media and still hold down a paid gig as a CNN contributor (to represent the Republican side of the issues, no less)? Never mind … it’s CNN. Of course they don’t care if their contributors spread fake news.
Spreading fake news yet again I see

He was talking about ms13 are you that stupid you cant do a little of your own research
— Junipero Serra (@JuniperoSerra14) April 6, 2019
Ana lives in the scary echo chamber of her own, Trump Derangement Syndrome mind. She can't help but repeat the false narratives fed to her in the mental institutions of CNN and The View.

No respect for you Ana. Misleading journalism only creates hate and is very very dangerous. Shame on you. Keep it up bc it will just get Trump re-elected. Has the left learned nothing????
— Dodgers4Life (@TracisTreats) April 6, 2019
It genuinely takes a lot of effort to as pathetic as you are. One would have to get up at 5 AM every day to get a jump on the competition to be the best at petty lying nitpicking and name-calling and I admire your complete and total dedication
— Stands2reason (@bryan_lanning) April 6, 2019
What’s wrong with you?
— Rich Weinstein (@phillyrich1) April 6, 2019
Wow what a blatant lie, just how stupid do you think most of us are? 90% of people don't believe these lies just because some trash like you says it, you should be ashamed but your not because you have no ethics at all

This is CNN.

Why do the Democratic politicians have to keep lying?
It is simple, there is no other way to beat him.
Russia, Russia, Russia.
Take y’all’s broken asses on with your lies. This is why Trump gains more support, we see the lies and deception in an attempt for power.

You are pathetic @ananavarro …you know that is not what he said, but you have become such a leftist that you lie right along with the rest of them. You are #FakeNews and we know how little you actually care. pic.twitter.com/9FaHzHKmRl

When @ananavarro is not smearing young kids with fake news, she uses fake news to exploit them.
This is not an honest mistake. She's just a a dishonest, disgusting liar.
— Richard Baris (@Peoples_Pundit) April 6, 2019
If anyone on our team ever made a "mistake" like that, they would have a very brief period to screenshot it, delete it, and issue an apology and correction w/ said screenshot before they got the box to start packing.
Does @CNN hold anyone to bottom-barrel ethical standards?
— Richard Baris (@Peoples_Pundit) April 6, 2019
She’s disgusting in every way.
— PDid (@FreePat62) April 6, 2019
Shes fake and desperate
— Toby & Nuggettita (@l1jxp1b) April 6, 2019
yet CNN won't do anything. There will be no apology, no one will be held accountable for this outrageous lie and smear against POTUS.
This is why CNN is crashing in the ratings. People realize it's just a smear machine against the president.
— Jacques (@lefirmamen) April 6, 2019
Seriously, we already did this a year ago … if you still don’t know Trump was specifically talking about MS-13, your TDS is obstructing your vision. And your conscience.
