The Shithole President

In a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, Authoritarian Donald Trump objected to extending lawful immigration status to people from Africa, El Salvador and Haiti. His racist venom began with Haiti. "Why do we need more Haitians?" he complained."Take them out." As the discussion continued, the racist-in-chief bellowed, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” He went on to say he'd like to see more people from Norway.

Make America White Again.

I particularly like the reaction of Mexico's former president, Vincente Fox. ""Donald Trump, your mouth is the foulest shithole in the world," he tweeted.

That about sums it up.

By the way, Norway's Aftenposten has reported that 66 percent of Norwegians have an “extremely unfavorable” impression of Trump. He actually beat Putin, who only has a 51% unfavorable rating.

Must be fake news.

Please stop fanning the flames of class warfare. Pres. Trump stated that these countries are terrible places to live. That is true and you know it. Why else would their people want to move here? He speaks in plain English to the people.

He worries about America, that is his job. He wants to protect us from Ebola, aids and other diseases.

We don't care what a bunch of European socialists think of our great president. He is fixing America and making it great again. Who care what the rest of the world thinks we are the greatest nation in the history of the world. We have the greatest military ever and fear no one.

Stop attacking our President and give him the respect and loyalty he deserves.

Despite the undiplomatic language, the US takes in 1.5 million souls from shithole countries, each year. Until the 1970s, this number was around 150K. A recently leaked memo from Democratic Party officials lays bare the importance of maintaining unfettered immigration as key to their electoral prospects. Democrats have lost the philosophical argument and are working hard to change the electorate. We're approaching 400M in population. The trip to 500M will be a blink. Technology will eliminate tens of millions of jobs over the next 20 years. Where is everyone going to work? Who is going to pay for all the free shit? We're a very generous country - to a fault.

The fact that so many Americans, not by any means a majority, but a strong base of support, stand behind a vulgar, idiotic xenophobe like Donald Trump is the most disheartening thing of all. A man is just a man, even if he is President. Trump is a walking manifestation of our worst traits as humans and as a nation, but his base - who claim to be such pro-American, strong patriots - have become a cult of personality. The party of the individual has become the party of the strong man, who in actuality is probably the weakest, most thin-skinned, most intellectually bereft executive we have ever elected.

Trump is pathetic and his enabling base is even more so.

In 1973, while serving in the navy, I had the distinct pleasure of pulling in to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. While pulling into the harbor we had the celestial smell of --it. In addition, the harbor was full of human feces. The only place clean was the Presidential Palace, the Casino and the Jane Barbencourt Rum Factory. The rest of the town was a slum. I don't blame anybody who wants to leave, however, why the United States. There are many liberal based countries in Europe that will gladly take them.
The benevolent US is saddled with the cost of this migration and Trump is only trying to mitigate this burden. Ever since my stately visit, I have called Haiti a true shithole! And that has nothing do with the blacks and creoles who live there. [And by the way, I didn't catch the CLAP, opposite of the majority of my shipmates.]

@1:16 am: "Honesty is not racism".

Sure is it. Racist people love hiding behind the veil of "honesty", or ""straight-talk". "Telling it like it is". etc... Plain an simple, Trump conned you. He preyed upon your emotional vulnerabilities.

He tapped into your fears, anxieties, prejudices and darkest desires. And he conned 63 million other Americans into voting for him by getting them to believe lies about Mexicans, Muslims, Blacks, Obama, The Clintons and all the "wonderful and beautiful" things he'd do for the people who support him.

So, either accept the fact that you've been conned or do some soul-searching and realize you are nothing more that a run-of-the-mill racist hiding in plain sight.

According to President Trump, this is not the language he used:

Getting away from the "he said, she said" part of all this, this raises the best question I can think of in the immigration debate.

Why does the United States accept large numbers of immigrants from countries so dissimilar to ours that they will likely never assimilate, or prove to be anything more than vote mules for Democrat's ?

Trump's a "shithead" racist douche bag. Never in my life has the Republican party proven to be so racist, divisive, ignorant, idiotic, and blatantly only in it for their own self-enrichment. So-called "tax reform" only goal is to pay back their wealthy white donors. The MOST UnChristian people to call themselves Christians, ever. Karma is a bitch and Trump could single-handedly take down the entire party as he goes down in the Russian probe that will end this farce once and for all.

Anonymous said...

@9:18 - It's human nature for people to deny what they don't want to believe and it takes generations for some concepts/beliefs to be weeded out of the norm.

As someone above pointed out, albeit sarcastically, people are scared of and hate "different" because "different" is unknown to them, they view it as a threat, hence major opposition and bias against Irish & Italians who came over in the late 1800's. Eventually those immigrants and especially their children (most of our grand parents or great grand parents at this point) assimilated to the "American" culture, but not before adding some of their own flavor to it (see; Great American Melting Pot simile).

The President regardless of party should be "above" the common citizen in both deeds and conduct. Applauding or liking Trump's behavior even if it does square with your personal beliefs is simply lowering the bar for future leadership. Maybe it was naive of us, but we all grew up idolizing Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush or Clinton. They were heroes to school kids. Maybe you or your parents didn't agree on specific policies and in some specific cases unbecoming behavior, they were all respected statesmen who could responsibly interact with friends and foes alike.

I feel bad for kids in Elementary Schools having to see a President who is unable to restrain himself from his own emotional impulses.

I have a question, Africa and Haiti have been exposed to the first world for near 200 years, there have been missionaries and others who have spent fortunes and time and a good part of their lives attempting to introduce good sanitation and education. Those efforts continue till today, yet many of these places have advanced very little. Also, does bringing large numbers of this population bring their country up? Or, does it contribute to the decline of our country?. If someone has an explanation for this situation, other than calling me a racist, please, lets have this discussion. For years we hear that these poor people suffer from the exploitation of others. The corruption in these governments is disgusting. If any one has solutions,let's hear them, bringing the world to the USA will not make the world better.

Just curious 12:40.
You sure you want to claim "200 years" as the amount of time Africa and Haiti were the recipients of good intentions. You cite missionaries and "others." You need to check your history books on what the majority of others did in these countries, often under the rule of foreign countries seeking to exploit resources and people.
Immigration allows many to find a better life. Are they all worthy? Of course not, but the majority of immigrants are decent hardworking people. Italians and Irish, when they flooded in weren't all members of the Mafia, or drunkards.

Anonymous 10:21 AM Said-- "Flooding the country with foreigners that will immediately go on welfare IS STUPID"

Yeah it would be if it were true. But according to The National Law Immigration Center those who entered the U.S. before or “on or after” on August 22, 1996 (when a federal law went into effect) bars most immigrants from “federal means-tested public benefits” during the five years after they secure qualified immigrant status. In other words they can't collect.

As far as "flooding the country" a quick Google search reveals-- Canada with having only a population of 35.2 million allows 250,000 a year. Germany (population of 82.67 million) just agreed to 200,000 a year. In United States (with it's 323 million) Obama allowed only 110,000 permanent refugees. The highest number since 1994. Trump wants to reduce it to just 50,000. BTW: In 2010 population of the Lehigh Valley was 821,623.

At this point I tend to think people are hard wired to believe what they want to believe. Including their fears over the facts. Nothing I said here will change that.

Why import more people that refuse and don't want to help themselves, except for the dems buying votes ( stated in a memo that leaked yesterday). Whether black,green yellow ,white red, or whatever, I don't want or need more welfare handouts from my hard earned money going to the lazy or ones that don't fight for themselves either already here or attempting to enter our country. Remember, our ancestors fought and worked for what they earned and received and had to pass through a entry point in coming here, but these lazy people want nothing but handouts from the good old USA and want to due what the hell they want regardless of our laws.It needs to end and this is a good starting point. We send millions ,if not billions to these countries and the gov't hoards it. Not my problem , if their own people don't give a damn.

Meanwhile, as the hoards are distracted by today's shiny object, Trump has delivered on his promise of a pro-life conservative SCOTUS pick, he's slashed the federal register of regulations in half, he's packing the federal bench with conservative jurists, and just slashed corporate and personal income taxes. For the vulgar, idiotic scoundrel he is, like him or not, he's gotten a hell of a lot accomplished in a relatively short time. Obama was right. Elections have consequences.

Now, let's return to noisy race mongering and discussions of the shiny-object-of-the-day while Trump continues to accomplish each point on his agenda.

Dave said...

And so it goes again...

It is important to remember that the anti-Trump media is heavily invested in portraying Donald Trump and his supporters as champions of white supremacy. This isn't anything new, and President Trump is not subscribe to the Political Correctness that has engulfed our society over the past decade or so.

Just a few months ago when racial violence broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, President Trump was angered that the media pretty much ignored bad behavior from left wing agitators. He stated his annoyance but was not precise - allowing the media to brand him as sympathetic to the Nazi demonstrators, who ignited the disgusting display.

Now President Trump perhaps disparaged some African countries as well as Haiti and El Salvador. It is true that those countries are troubled and rank high on the “misery index.” However, when speaking about nations populated by people of color, a certain diplomacy is usually used to soften the tone for the snowflake crowd of Progressives, of which Bernie O'Hare is one.

So now we must must endure another round of “the President is a racist” nonsense. The hate-Trumpers are rejoicing over this, despite President Trump denying it was ever said. The Progressives are using it because it further marginalizes a leader who has momentum on the economy and national security.

The United States of America should not be a dumping ground for the unproductive. Donald Trump was elected because he has NOT been some political figure on your payroll for 26 years. So- The Haitian government is across the fence from another government that is not having problems at the same rate and quite civil . . This is all on the same island . Why is that? Damaged properties -The Clinton s sucked contract work out of this disaster on the guise that they are humanitarian s well ask Vince Foster ! The place has generally they same as before the issue . You can’t really tell the difference after the the disaster. . If you as a tourist were to hang out long enough you would be a target and subsequently robbed and maybe be lucky to get back on the aircraft alive to return here. So - the liberal media has been one sided ,and This President is making corrections that the Socialist Obama Society had placed- into our political adjenda that is counterproductive to a free society. Obama is out there still to counter his administrative issues and We are about to find out about his underground . Stay tuned.

In my view if they aren't shithole countries, why the hell are the people fleeing those places? Why is it a problem if we send them back?

Trump really opened the whole can of worms that nobody in Government wants to discuss. Mexico is directly to our south. Located right on the border of the richest country on earth?. It has access to both oceans, abundant natural resources, lots of young people. Is Mexico a shithole? The people of Mexico are flooding over the border like a fucking tidal wave. Why? What pressure do we apply to the governments of these places to get their act in gear so their people DON'T want to be here, but live in the nation they were born in?

Using diplomatic doublespeak enables the tyrants and monsters who run those shithole countries to live lives unscathed, and they all live like kings as well. We let them and their families come to our country on shopping sprees paid for by feasting on the very lives of the people who cannot escape. Those who are too old, too young, too poor to even walk across the border. Those who can try to get here any way they can because they don't have shit to live with in their shithole nation.

The discussion is long overdue.

Thank you PRESIDENT Trump!

4) The economy is roaring and the tax cuts didn't kill everyone like the Democrats predicted.
5) Trump's approval is rising fast, especially when people see bigger paychecks.
6) The Democrats have no accomplishments and no platform to run on in 2018 except "Donald Trump hurt our feels."

Yeah.. I'd say Democrats need a distraction. What else do they have besides "Hate Trump" ?

First, if your parents broke into a home, and decided to take up residence in the property, are the children entitled to live in the home? That's what "Dreamers" are.

These illegal alien "Dreamers" have American educations, send them home and let's see how they can change these "shitholes".

If these countries are NOT "shitholes" then what is the harm in sending the Dreamers back to the nation their parents came from in the first place?

I am interested in anon 2:08's questions. Love to hear some of the answers.

Charles Wilson, Allentown said...

Something else.

It seems that countries being called "Shitholes" by Trump has become a major news story for the Mainstream Media to use as a club to beat him up with. However, when Bill and Hillary Clinton and their Clinton Foundation stole MILLIONS of dollars that were supposed to go to Haiti for earthquake relief, not a word was mentioned about it. And one of these media outlets really gave a damn about the "Poor People of Haiti", did they?

"The parallels between him and Hitler are obvious". BOH your really showing your very liberal and bias commentary and it is off the hook.

First, I don't no where the closest interment camp is.
Second, he has not rounded up the Jews for deportation.
Third, he hasn't imprinted numbers on anyone.
Fourth, he hasn't attacked any nation seeking living space.
Fifth, he won the election and decided to proclaim himself the single leader.

Yes he [Trump] may have some behavior issues, but he calls it the way it is. He didn't call the citizens of these nations anything, however, he called there nations shitholes. The truth sucks, and all the do good liberals turn it around for political gain! These shithole countries have corrupt governments and refuse to build their infrastructure to support their citizens, thus, they have to come to good old US to accept the citizens as refugees. It is time to stop these waves of immigration and let these individuals throw out these corrupt governments at home.

Bernie O'Hare said...

It's "know," not "no." He has not rounded up the Jews but would like to round up Muslims and thinks anyone who criticizes him has committed treason. He would deny an FCC broadcasting license to NBC, and wants to be able to use the FBI to pursue his political enemies. He has threatened to attack several nations, including allies. Like Hitler, he has derided the free press.

I am tired of seeing people attempt to defend Trump's "behavior issues." He is racist, sexist, selfish, greedy and unimaginative. That is not telling it like it is. That is telling it like you want to hear at this point bc you yourself are likely these things as well. If you don't want me to think that, stop defending the outrageous unAmerican behavior.

It's way too late to be read and considered but here I go anyway.

I think we can identify the anti-American deplorables above. They are the deluded but they clearly choose to be. They choose to believe the liar racist in chief who just destroyed your health care, raised your taxes, failed to create jobs, failed to build infrastructure, exacerbates global warming, destroys your environment, preys on our society's most vulnerable and has demonstrably told over 2,000 lies since assuming office.

You defy everything that made America great. Coming from poverty or war or natural disaster does not make the human inferior or undesirable or dangerous. It almost always makes them more determined to make it and to provide a better life for their children.

drumpf is destroying this beautiful country and you deplorables are entirely complicit.

1:05, I wS concerned about this before I wrote what I wrote. The WaPo story cited an aide to Trump as its source. It then went to the WH for a reaction, and there were no denials. The remarks were instead embraced. It was not until the next day, after the condemnations rolled in, that Trump issued a denial. That denial was refuted by Durban. It is clear to me that, backed into a corner, Trump is responding with lies.

You really need to look at the bigger picture of what Trump really wants and how he is trying to get there by citing libel laws.
He wants to shut down any vocal or written dissent to his decisions. He wants the power of a Facist. Trump Advisor and "Man Who Would Be Joseph Goebbels" Stephen Miller, made it quite clear of just how dangerous the thinking within the Trump WH really is.

Those who loathe the venom and lies of drumpf are the haters? You have it backwards. Those who loathe drumpfs bigotry, sadism, lying and duplicity love this country, its laws, its great Constitution.

Please read above the grotesque disrespect and vile hatred based upon ethnicity, religion etc.

Here's the thing, to those who have had the benefit of family lineage in this country for hundreds of years, the benefits of decent education, housing and relative safety--if you are so bereft of character, integrity and intelligent thought that you assault humble hardworking people based upon national origin + color, then you have put yourself on the underbelly of humanity--the leaches, drains. But fundamentally utterly anti-American. The antithesis of the spirit, will and vision that made, makes and hopefully can survive the assault to continue, this country the global leader.

I hear real estate is affordable in Mississippi. Perhaps the drumpf lovers would like to leave.

This blog is about” shithole countries remark allegedly “ Well FYI , in the 1800s Chinese labor was imported to Haitian soil to build stuff because no labor was available from the occupants. They the locals wouldn’t work . So after the projects were compleated , the Chinese laboror s were killed and buried in mass graves so they didn’t have to pay them . Nothing has changed ,they can’t find labor there now to fix their own stuff ,so it’s a mess. Who fault is that ? On the same island to the West half is the Dominican Republic .Wire fence is the only separation between lots of soil North to South . Why are they different ? Why does one attract tourist and produce export ,and the East end cuts off chicken heads ? Give me an Ethiopian with a rifle in his hand and I’ll show you a great worrier with ethics . Or I’ll take the independence of the Masai of Kenya ,I’d even move one in my home because of their honor and respect for other things. This is not racial .

Did this "event" actually happen?

Two leakers say he used the term "shitholes" to describe countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt President Trump in order to gain a partisan political advantage. CNN's Jake Tapper is saying Trump didn't attack Haiti in the way the leakers said Trump did. There are also two Republican senators who say they didn't hear Trump say what the leakers claim. President Trump, lastly denies it.

Where's the BEEF Bernie? Or are you so eager to repeat lies about President Trump you'll say anything to disparage him.

After all Mr. O'Hare, you are a disbarred attorney, yes? How much can we actually believe YOU in all this.

LVCI said...

11:28 AM Charles Wilson, Allentown said..."Did this "event" actually happen?.... two Republican senators who say they didn't hear Trump say "

The actual quote from the two Republican Senators was they "didn't recall" it. They didn't deny he said it. Only that they couldn't "recall" him doing so. Must have really bad memories.

The President's record on truthfulness leaves something to be desired. Just this morning he tweeted-- "Obviously I didn’t say that. I said “I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,” a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters."

The only truthful part was the last when he said there was a recording. Indeed there was and the WSJ released it. Here it is. Listen for yourself.

Killing DACA is a good start towards the enforcement of current immigration laws.

Semi off-topic, but noteworthy in regard to the right-wing garbage that is spewed around here. Yesterday, Howard Stern had Jane Fonda on as a guest. He thanked her for her protesting the Vietnam war and called her a hero for doing so in the face of so much backlash. She was making a statement against the carnage that Nixon started. The vile, hatred and ugliness being smeared at Howard today on social media for his thoughts, mirror the deplorable comments on this thread from some very similar, despicable people.
