Another day another liberal meltdown over something Trump said. You’d think they would have gotten tired of trying to smear Trump as a racist by now but they just can’t help themselves. The latest freakout is over Trump allegedly using the word “s*** hole” to describe third world countries.
President Donald Trump on Thursday questioned why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as “shithole countries,” according to two sources familiar with the comments.
Trump’s comments, made in the White House, came as Democratic Senator Dick Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham briefed the president on a newly drafted immigration bill being touted by a bipartisan group of senators, according to the sources, who asked not to be identified.
Other government officials were present during the conversation, the sources said.
Who knows if he said it. The White House didn’t deny it.
Here’s the White House statement.
Let’s just assume he said it. So what?
To get upset about this comment is to get upset about something we all know. Trump is crude sometimes. That’s not new. As far as those countries being not fun places to live, are we seriously going to pretend that’s not true? Are we seriously going to pretend that Haiti isn’t hell on earth? People who are getting upset by this are also pretending that two things can’t be true at the same time. A place can be a s*** hole and be filled with good and honest people. Trump didn’t say anything about the people who lived there. He said their countries were a mess. That’s 1,000% true.
Why is it racist to raise concerns about importing millions of people from places where crime and disease are rampant? We can’t even talk about that? Importing millions of low skilled workers into this country over the years has done some great things. It’s also done some not great things like lower wages for citizens and contribute to crime. The fact that we can’t even ask the question about why we are doing things the way we are without being called racist just shows you how insanely sensitive we have become.
Tucker Carlson turned the tables on them.
Tucker elaborated on his show Thursday night. Watch it. Seriously.
What’s wrong with what Tucker said?
If you want to be mad about something you can be mad at Trump’s language. It’s still a strange thing to be mad about after all this time. We all know that people talk like this. But, you can at least make an argument that you’re offended regardless of how lame that is.
However, being mad about Trump calling remarkably impoverished countries a term meant to describe remarkably impoverished places makes absolutely no sense.
As usual, spineless politicians on both sides of the aisle are turning on Trump.
No one said anything about your parents being bad people, Mia. Why did they come to America? Because Haiti was amazing?
Liberals have been reacting the same way. Brainiacs like Mia Farrow have been tweeting pictures of people from Africa all day and pretending that Trump hates them. Yikes. People accusing Trump of racism are choosing to ignore the years and years of not racist things he has done and all the amazing things he has done for minority communities. What a world we live in where all that work can be thrown out the window because you said something crude in a meeting.
To pretend that Trump hates these people is to ignore absolutely everything about Trump’s record. This is the same guy who is totally willing to keep DACA kids here. Liberals praise him over that. But, then turn around and call him racist for a comment he made behind closed doors.
Come on you guys. Conservatives getting upset about this are acting like the liberal snowflakes that we always make fun of. Sure, the choice of words wasn’t ideal but let’s not pretend for one second that Haiti or El Salvador is somewhere that anyone is dying to live. Immigrants aren’t pouring into Haiti and El Salvador. They are fleeing en masse. We shouldn’t be afraid to admit that.
