The full quote please

Laurie Roberts of the Arizona Republic mocked The Donald, which is her right and certainly he gave her ample ammunition in his 40 years of media interviews.

But of all the quotes she could have used, why did she use one out of context?

From Laurie Roberts:
…. To high school dropouts.
"We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated." 
-Trump, after his Nevada caucus win. Feb. 23, 2016
Now the full quote:
So this was very exciting tonight. But I’ll tell you it looks like we won by a lot evangelicals. I love evangelicals, and I have to tell you pastor [Robert] Jeffress has been so incredible on television and elsewhere. He has been great. And as you know Liberty University — do we love Liberty University? Huh? Jerry Falwell Jr., an unbelievable guy, and he has been with us and with us from the beginning, and I want to thank Jerry and his family. It’s been amazing, the relationship. So we won the evangelicals. 
We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated. We’re the smartest people, we’re the most loyal people, and you know what I’m happy about? Because I've been saying it for a long time. 46% were the Hispanics — 46%, No. 1 one with Hispanics. I’m really happy about that.
So I’m very proud of you, this is an amazing night. I love the country, I love the country. We’re going in the wrong direction. We’re going to keep — as you know Gitmo, we’re keeping that open, and we’re going to load it up with bad dudes. We’re going to load it up w a lot of bad dudes out there. We’re going to have our borders nice and strong. We’re going to build the wall, you know that. We’re going to build the wall. And I have a lot of respect from Mexico, and you just heard we won Hispanics. But let me tell you Mexico is going to pay for the wall, right? It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen. They know it. I know it. We all know it.
Laurie Roberts was dishonest. She knows better. Her job as a columnist is to defend her position with facts, not chopped up words. But hiow else can Roberts feed the hate machine?


  1. Althouse linked to this article on Salon. If you watch the full Colbert Show video clip on Youtube (which Salon doesn't link to), you'll see the article writer is either lying about what Trump said or is terminally stupid. Probably both.

    There's no shortage of writers willing to wreck their credibility to stop Trump, starting with Michelle Fields and Ben Shapiro.

    1. Yikes. Here's the Salon link:

  2. Because she is no longer a journalist, she is a propagandist as are most members of the LSM which is actually the propaganda arm of the Dimocrat Party. As Insty sez, "Dimocrat operatives with bylines". Goebbels would be proud of our LSM and how it has fooled the American public for so long. Now, the blinders are slowly coming off and more and more people are seeing the LSM for what it is, a propaganda organization.

  3. The LSM always quotes out of context. Dems with bylines--that's what they do.

  4. Most journalists are propagandists.

  5. This same out of context quote was used in an anti-Trump PAC ad here in Florida during the primary.
