Our Shithole President


Okay, are we as low as we can go yet? Keeping it classy, the evil pretender to the presidency Thursday griped to lawmakers discussing immigration options for those fleeing Haiti and multiple African nations, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" He added, “We should have more people from places like Norway.” The comments were initially reported by The Washington Post, and later confirmed by NBC NewsBuzzFeed and CNN, thus topping off another banner day for the stable genius - or, actually, year; he's also recently said that Haitians “all have AIDS” and Nigerians would never “go back to their huts” once they'd seen the U.S. Asked about the shithole comment, deputy press secretary Raj Shah responded, “Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people.” We wonder how he feels looking in the mirror after spouting that crap.

Decent Americans weren't buying any of it, nor was Mexico's VYour mouth is the foulest shithole in the world." Democrats called him "the worst of us," a "vile stain on our country's reputation," and "a cowardly racist who has no business being President.” "The real question, said Rep. Mark Pocan, "is why we allow presidents from sh*thole companies like the Trump Organization." Is this enough to finally admit he's a racist? asks The Root's Damon Young, who answers no. "And by 'no' I mean, “LOLOLOLOLOLOL..FUCK NO THAT SHIT AIN’T EVER GONNA HAPPEN THESE DUDES COULD WATCH DONALD TRUMP INSCRIBE THE FIRST CHAPTER OF MEIN KAMPF ON MIKE PENCE’S ASS CHEEKS AND THEY’D STILL BE LIKE ‘WELL, THE PRESIDENT IS JUST VERY DOGMATIC ABOUT GERMAN CALLIGRAPHY.’” THESE FECKLESS AND CRAVEN FUCKS HAVE NO SHAME." Mostly, mourned one tweet, "It was a sad day to be an American." And, don't forget, an angry one. It gave us a new nickname/hashtag -  and the fundamental question from Rep. Keith Ellison: "Ready to organize yet?"

"Ask any Mexican, any Puerto Rican, any black man, any poor person - ask the wretched how they fare in the halls of justice, and then you will know, not whether or not the country is just, but whether or not it has any love for justice, or any concept of it. It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have." - James Baldwin, No Name in the Street
