FACEPALM: Ignorant Blue Checks on Twitter Mock Trump For Saying 'Coyotes' Bring Kids Across the Border

I don't know who needs to hear this today, but if you don't know what a "coyote" is, you shouldn't even be discussing the issue of immigration, let alone criticizing Trump for his policies.

In fact, you should probably just sit down and be quiet. Maybe learn to tie your own shoes first. 

During Thursday night’s debate, President Donald Trump referred to “coyotes,” a commonly used term for the human traffickers who ferry people across into the United States illegally, as one of the many reasons why a child might be separated from an adult at the border, rightly explaining that just because a child crosses the border with an adult, that doesn't automatically mean that adult is the child's parent.

The word “coyote” isn’t just an immigration term – it’s a very commonly used one. Referenced often from news reports and articles to TV shows and movies, the word "coyotes" a popular slang term for smugglers, and one that anyone with an opinion on immigration should know by default.

But given that may leftists have the collective wattage of a Zippo lighter, social media lit up like a Christmas tree after Trump made the reference, sparking mockery and indignation from anti-Trumpers who apparently thought the president was referring to an actual coyote – as in, the animal – bringing children across the border.

Here’s just a small sampling of all the blue check marks who legitimately accused the president of saying a medium-sized wild dog is routinely dragging Central American kids by the shirt collars into Texas.

This weekend sports anchor and supposed news journalist in Georgia.
 


This honest-to-God corporate attorney who's also somehow got elected as a Georgia state rep.
 


This supposed news veteran who writes for the Houston Chronicle.
 


Former Cleveland Browns player Eric Metcalf.
 


"Moana" star Auli'i Crevalho.
 


Anti-gun activist David Hogg, who still doesn't know what he's talking about and thinks "coyotes" are just parents bringing their kids across the border.
 


Unfortunately, these are just a few examples - and there are hundreds.
 


These are the folks trying to convince you that Trump is dumber than a sack of potatoes.
