As President Trump talked about the Americans who have been murdered by illegal immigrants last night, Seth Meyers thought this would be a funny burn:
Is this Oval Office: SVU?

I’m sure that’s hysterical to the families of the murder victims the president just discussed. https://t.co/XOOWeWZMSp

Yeah. I mean, WTF? This is just gross.
According to Fox News:
“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” starring Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T, follows detectives solving sex crimes. The joke was likely inspired by Trump’s lead up to his argument that illegal immigrants entering the country from the U.S.-Mexico border is “a humanitarian crisis.”
“In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings,” the president said. “Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now. This is a humanitarian crisis. A crisis of the heart, and a crisis of the soul.”
The president also stated, “1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico.” CNN found the latter statement to be true in their fact check, but found the crime statistics he dropped to be more complicated.
“Trump is using these statistics to paint the picture of dangerous criminals coming across the border. On balance the stats he cites are largely accurate, yet the fact is more than half of those crimes are non- violent in nature,” CNN wrote.
Ok? And? The other half ARE violent crimes? D’yall feel great about that?
It’s NOT a joke.

You’re sick. Period. There are real families grieving tonight because of this issue. You Hollyweirdos need to leave your bubbles behind and try and relate to real people once in a while.

Why are you mocking the victims and their families? Illegal aliens murdering Americans isn’t funny, scum.
