Me, almost every day: Well, that’s certainly the most offensive, ignorant, racist, stupid thing the President of the United States could ever say
Donald Trump, also almost every day: Hold my beer.
On Thursday, the popular vote loser did it again. He said something so incredibly offensive it makes you wonder if this really is all some strange nightmare, because surely the American people wouldn’t elect such a person to the White House.
The Hill Reported that during a meeting with Senators Lindsey Graham (R. SC), Dick Durbin (D. Ill), Tom Cotton (R. Ark), and Bob Goodlatte (R. Va) and other lawmakers to discuss protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, Trump claimed that one of America’s biggest problems was accepting immigrants from these “shithole countries.”
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers.
That’s right, the President of the United States of America just referred to other countries
And the White House didn’t deny it, either. No reason to lie about the utter racism anymore, I guess.
“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” White House spokesperson Raj Shah said in a statement.
“President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation,” the spokesman added.
Trump, ever the diplomatic genius, then suggested we instead take immigrants from Norway, apparently not realizing that Norway is one of the nicest places in the world to live and no one would come from there to the shithole America he has created.
One Democratic lawmaker summed it up quite nicely:
Yep. Valid question, Rep. Pocan.
