Today our President said this:
And the idea he is mentally ill is being documented from many sources and this is clearly dangerous.

No, that’s just racist. No psych eval needed.January 11, 2018 at 7:05 pm #34144
Pure racism. Beyond belief.
It just gets worse every day. It’s like he tries to become more offensive with every day.January 12, 2018 at 9:58 am #34150
He certainly stepped in it.
The countries that Trump criticizes are ones where the majority of the population is of African descent (Haiti and Nigeria) or of mixed ancestry (El Salvador; see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_El_Salvador#Ethnic_groups ), but these are also places with high rates of poverty and bad infrastructure. One might be left wondering whether a country is a “shithole” place in Trump’s view because of the poverty or because most of the people are brown. What points to the latter is that he previously made comments to the effect that all Haitians “have AIDS” and that Nigerians “would never go back to their huts” in Africa, now that they are in the US.January 12, 2018 at 11:58 am #34151
IF you STILL support Trump, you support this.January 12, 2018 at 4:20 pm #34152
A certain percentage of his core supporters LIKE it when he says these things.January 12, 2018 at 4:43 pm #34153
Trump denies the quote and 2 of the people who attended the meeting say they don’t recall him saying that. But of corse the fake media likes to run with a story regardless if it is reputable or not. CNN the most biased anti Trump news network broke this story which makes me even more certain this was a fake quote. CNN is about as credible as The National Enquirer. Unless you have audio of him saying this quote than it is merely speculation.

More lies and racist remarks from drumpf. Denial is not flying.
drumpf’s denial isn’t flying except with his undereducated, bigoted, ignorant and shrinking base.
Besides, drumpf is a known liar. Durbin on the other hand has no history of telling whoppers.
Not even a nice try rating on your post, Dork. You’re like a heroin addict in denial. Now that you have gotten your fix, you’re all OK with it. Ha.January 12, 2018 at 5:37 pm #34156
I believe the initial report came from Josh Dawsey of The Washington Post. Lindsey Graham has basically corroborated it. Also Paul Ryan.
Now tell us how The Washington Post is a platform for Jeff Bezos.
CNN is definitely trying to be the anti-Fox News cable news source. They’re doing a decent job of it too.
EDIT: Fixed the spelling of “Lindsey”.January 12, 2018 at 6:01 pm #34157
Several people, both R’s and D’s have confirmed what he said verbatim, who were in the room.
The two R’s that “don’t recall” also don’t recall if they have a sack or not.January 12, 2018 at 7:45 pm #34158
CNN is reporting the word used was “shithouse”, not “shithole”. So the Republicans denying they heard the word “shithole” could technically be telling the truth. Lol.January 12, 2018 at 8:06 pm #34159
I don’t see that CNN reporting as of tonight, but I couldn’t say it isn’t true.
I did see a new Trump scandal erupting…January 13, 2018 at 9:36 am #34162
I suspect the CNN panel of talking heads was speculating on a plausible explanation as to why some attendees of the meeting denied hearing it.January 13, 2018 at 12:20 pm #34165
Fake news … again.
“Rumors that I received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false. If indeed I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, You wouldn’t be reading about it in the news, you would be reading about it in my book. …
Overheard at a South Tacoma quickee mart by two gentlemen with brown skin and eyes, full lips and naturally curly black hair, “Sudan is a shit hole.” Clerk behind the counter appears to be Sudanese.
Best quote of the day: “I said to the president, ‘do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African Americans believe they migrated to America in chains, and when you speak to chain migration it hurts them personally,’” [Illinois Senior Senator Richard] Durbin explained. “He said, ‘oh that’s a good line.’”
Time out! Maybe if’s y’all would stop chasing car bumpers, you wouldn’t need a concussion protocol. [drops mic]January 13, 2018 at 6:37 pm #34170

Guess again, dork. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said fellow South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham confirmed President Trump referred to some nations as “shithole countries” during a White House meeting that Graham attended with lawmakers Thursday.
Scott told the Post and Courier that Graham said the comments that have been widely reported by the press are “basically accurate.”
