The liberal mainstream media pounced on to a small segment of a speech Donald Trump delivered at a Florida rally Monday concerning the care that the alleged New Jersey and New York bomber will receive now that he’s been captured.
On Monday, suspected terrorist-bomber Ahmad Kahn Rahami was captured by authorities, and the Republican presidential nominee made reference to that event to the Estero, Florida gathering.

“We have caught this evil thug who planted the bomb,” he said of Rahami. “Thank you, law enforcement. Thank you, police.”
Then he launched in to the part the haters predictably found fault with.
“But the bad part, now we will give him amazing hospitalization. He will be taken care of by some of the best doctors in the world,” said Trump. “He will be given a fully modern and updated hospital room. And he’ll probably even have room service, knowing the way our country is. And on top of all of that, he will be represented by an outstanding lawyer.”
But what media outlets failed to mention is what he said following the above.
“His case will go through the various court systems for years, and in the end people will forget and his punishment will not be what it once would have been,” he said. “We must have speedy, but fair trials and we must deliver a just and very harsh punishment to these people.”
Similarly, Sen. Lindsey Graham, who was a U.S. Air Force JAG officer and retired that retired as a colonel, suggested Rahami be treated as an enemy combatant in order to speed the legal process and glean information from him. The South Carolina Republican tweeted:
I hope the Obama Administration will consider holding Ahmad Khan Rahami as an enemy combatant for intelligence gathering purposes.

As for Rahami’s medical care, most Americans with a heart will compare his to that received by our nation’s veterans who have to wait weeks — often months — to receive the care they’re supposed to be guaranteed. Meanwhile, the agency reportedly keeps 167 interior designers on staff.
The truth is that Trump showed emotion about the attack, unlike the robotic responses from Hillary Clinton, who appeared drugged as she spoke on the attacks, and President Obama, who called it a “war of narratives.”
But here are the headlines the libs have started pushing: “Trump Denounces Bombing Suspect’s Hospitalization and Right to an Attorney” and “Trump Bemoans Bombing Suspect Getting Hospital Care, Lawyer.”
