On Thursday afternoon, liberal freelance writer Rob Rousseau said he’d rather have his daughter date a member of the violent gang MS-13 than a member of the Republican Party.
“I would rather my daughter dated a member of MS-13 than a member of the Republican Party,” he wrote.
Rousseau has published pieces with VICE Sports, among other publications. Most of his Twitter feed is dedicated to bashing Republicans and President Donald Trump.
The freelance writer’s purposefully incendiary tweet about his daughter (which he does not actually have) was made in reaction to President Trump calling MS-13 members “animals.” The vicious gang, comprised mostly of immigrants from El Salvador, rapes, tortures, and murders victims in gruesome fashion, operating on the motto “Kill, Rape, Control.” In one such case, two teen girls were beaten with bats and hacked so severely with machetes that they were unrecognizable. When the MS-13 murderers appeared in court, they smiled, laughed, and waved as the victims’ family members looked on.
Rousseau’s tweet was posted after he ranted about Trump’s “animal” remark and his displeasure with some of the media for clarifying that the president was referring to MS-13 gang members and not all immigrants, as most initial reports purposefully bungled. “Now that all these media dips***s have fallen over themselves to clarify Trump’s ‘animals’ comment, the notoriously reasonable & intelligent denizens of MAGA twitter are completely satisfied. They like CNN now actually,” he posted.
In another tweet, Rousseau suggested Trump was referring to all immigrants, sarcastically writing, “listen you lib moron, Trump wasn’t referring to just anyone as ‘animals’ just the members of a violent drug gang, also I believe those are the only people entering the US illegally and the only people being targeted by ICE.”
After Rousseau was met with immense backlash for the tweet, he wrote, “The chuds are mad at me again.”
