Former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent Dan Bongino blasted Democrats for criticizing President Trump's labeling of MS-13 gang members as "animals."

The president described the brutal gang as "animals" during a roundtable at the White House on Wednesday.

"The Democrats are most assuredly the dopiest party in [Washington] D.C. because they constantly get baited through their anti-Trump animus into doing things they wouldn't normally do," Bongino said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

Media outlets also took the president's words out of context, running stories that claimed he used the term to describe illegal immigrants more broadly.
