Oh hey folks, AP totally screwed up their reporting again, their bad …
This is getting ri-damn-diculous.
AP has deleted a tweet from late Wednesday on Trump’s “animals” comment about immigrants because it wasn’t made clear that he was speaking after a comment about gang members.

Gosh, thanks for deleting the tweet, AP.
Whatever happened to actually doing your job, media? Especially the AP. We get it, you guys want to be the first to break a story but mistakes are happening SO OFTEN with reporting on Trump that they spend more time issuing corrections than actually covering the news.
He gets taken out of context because he often doesn’t speak coherently, especially when he’s winging it. The media and the public are unforgiving when it comes to lack of clarity. Are we supposed to adjust our expectations or should we expect better clarity from @POTUS?

Yes, it’s clearly Trump’s fault they took him out of context to push their crap narrative.
He was asked a question specifically about ms13 and replied by calling them animals. It’s not hard

Once again, the 24 hour rule would prove useful

You mean a news site reported something without doing research or have correct facts? I'm in shock…

You guys are such a joke.

And not a funny one either.
These AP deletes are getting more common :/

It’s dumb it took this long for it to happen when the transcript was obvious that you took it out of context only to make it a better story. #ClickBait

The media was already vested in the narrative that Trump called illegal immigrants, ‘animals.’ They so wanted it to be true they were clearly pushing this correction out in hopes it would be made quietly.
So, of course, make sure you share this correction everywhere possible.
