Juan Williams is the designated leftist on Fox’s popular afternoon show, ‘The Five.’ As such, he’s responsible for parroting some of the most obnoxious media talking points in the face of spirited opposition by the show’s more talented conservative voices.
One of those voices, guest star Jeanine Pirro, who has her own Fox show, took Williams to task for his lies about Trump.
The clash started when Williams, like so many media figures before him, conveniently misquoted Trump’s campaign launch speech, in which the President made the point that many criminal illegal aliens were a problem.
Trump’s words were poorly phrased, but he was very clearly making the point that some, but not all, illegal immigrants were problematic. His words:
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
The media has spent the last few years arguing that Trump made a blanket racist statement, and Juan Williams did the same thing again on ‘The Five,’ saying: “I think you’ll remember he started this campaign by going after Latin immigrants. He said Mexicans were rapist and thieves.”
This time, Judge Jeanine and the rest of the crew called him on it.
