The latest uproar over our Sexist, Intolerant, Xenophobic, Homophobic, Islamophobic, Racist, Bigoted president revolves around his “alleged” claim America should not accept immigrants from “shithole countries.”
President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, a Democratic aide briefed on the meeting said.
Trump’s comments were first reported by The Washington Post, which said the group of nations referred to also included El Salvador.
The comments came as senators huddled in the Oval Office with the president to discuss a path forward on an immigration deal. Trump questioned why the United States would want people from nations such as Haiti while he was being briefed on changes to the visa lottery system.
According to the aide, when the group discussed immigration from Africa, Trump asked why America would want immigrants from “all these shithole countries” and that the U.S. should have more people coming in from places like Norway.
The best response to this ridiculous non-story came from Jim Treacher on Twitter:
Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, the president was quoted accurately. So what? Does anyone believe America would be better off taking immigrants from Somalia, Iraq, or Kazakhstan instead of Finland, Tunisia, or India? Because I sure don’t.
I also don’t think this is the blockbuster story the leftist media believes it is. There ARE shithole countries on this planet, and everyone agrees which ones are on the shit list. Stop your pearl clutching and get a life.
