Meh. And I did not hear him say it. Candidate Hillary referring to her fellow citizens, to millions of Americans as deplorables, was worse (even if Trump said what they claim he said).

Why??......One thing I learned about when MSNBC and CNN start hyperventilating about something Trump said, you better listen to the original in it's context, and you'll be guaranteed they have it all fucked up....This is just another distraction....

There is a difference between making public statements and having someone leak some alleged statement. All people say stuff in a closed door setting that they would not say in a public setting. There are plenty of recordings of Presidents LBJ and Nixon saying outrageous things. And for the record Hatti is a shit hole country. You all know it.

Trump won’t be so fortunate with his latest comments on Haiti.

The Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey is reporting that Trump made a similar comment about wanting more immigrants from places like Norway rather than from “shithole counties” like Haiti and those in Africa.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” he told lawmakers during a meeting in the Oval Office on Thursday, according to two people briefing on the session. And this time, the White House isn't even denying it.

How about we apply that word to all the 3rd world countries who are trying to unload their unwanted on us. Importing poverty is about as stupid as it gets.

How about we apply some higher STANDARDS to the office of the U.S. presidency? How about we expect decency? Intelligence?? Maturity??

Importing poverty--okay I get that. So why doesn't Trump use those terms? WHY do you condone this man's constant vulgarity--his lies?

Defend his policies. Defend his budget. Defend his EOs.....but WHY can't you STOP defending this mockery?
Thanks from Camelot and Hollywood

A "shithole," in Trump parlance.

Because it is funny. It frames him as a real person not just another talking suit whispering sweet nothings into the gullible ears of the public.
