Lindsey Graham has essentially confirmed that Trump did indeed call African nations "shithole" countries.

Courtesy of NBC News: 

Sen. Lindsey Graham did not deny Friday that President Donald Trump called certain nations "s---hole" countries, adding that he "said [his] piece" in response to the president's "comments" at a meeting with lawmakers. 

The South Carolina Republican did not rebut an account from Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., of a Thursday meeting on bipartisan immigration legislation that both attended. On Friday, Durbin said that Trump "repeatedly" said "hate-filled things" at the meeting and called African nations "s---hole" countries. 

Durbin added that Graham spoke up in response to Trump's comments and said it took courage to do so. 

"I appreciate Senator Durbin's statements and have enjoyed working with him and many others on this important issue," Graham said in a statement. "I believe it is vitally important to come to a bipartisan solution to the immigration and border challenges we face today. I am committed to working with Republicans and Democrats to find common ground so we can move forward."

So despite Trump's denial earlier today here are two Senators, both present at the meeting, confirming that he did indeed make those disgusting remarks.

In other words they are calling him a liar.

Which makes this next story very troubling.

Courtesy of the Washington Examiner:  

Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga., defended President Trump Friday after reports that he referred to Haiti and various African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting at the White House. 

In a statement, the pair of GOP immigration hawks said they "do not recall" the president making those remarks and hit Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., for not "negotiating in good faith" by making what they call an "accusation." 

“President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides. But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith," Cotton and Perdue said. 

"In regards to Senator Durbin’s accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest," they said. "We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades.”

So not only did Donald Trump lie about what he said in that meeting, but these two Republican Senators also lied in order to cover for him.

And on Fox News they suggested that Trump was just talking like everyday Americans talk to each other.
Courtesy of HuffPo:

After The Washington Post on Thursday afternoon first reported Trump’s remarks at a White House meeting with lawmakers, “The Five” co-host Jesse Watters shrugged off the slur as the way ordinary Americans talk about “Haiti people.” 

“If it’s true, this is how the forgotten men and women in America talk at the bar,” Watters said. “This is how Trump relates to people. If you’re at a bar, and you’re from Wisconsin, and you’re thinking, ‘They’re bringing in a bunch of Haiti people, or El Salvadorians, or people from Niger.’ This is how some people talk.” 

No, that's the way people at Fox News talk.

I am not typically a big Lindsey Graham fan, but at least he had enough integrity to not only confront Trump over those remarks, but also to refuse to lie for him in order to cover them up.

Look at that, the bar is now so low in the Republican party that we are now congratulating them for not lying about racist comments made by their president.

    Cotton and Perdue must have been playing underneath the table. BTW, Cotton is the biggest snake around, and Trump has promised him the CIA.

    Well, it looks like now it is acceptable to refer to tRump as “that shithole president,” right?

    Oh, and I don’t recall writing the above comment.

    Did Trump cheat on Ivanka?

    Porn Star Was Reportedly Paid to Stay Quiet About Trump

    A lawyer for President Trump orchestrated a $130,000 payment to a pornographic-film actress in October 2016 to prevent her from going public with claims of a consensual sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

    The reported payment came shortly before the presidential election and as the actress, Stephanie Clifford, 38, was discussing sharing her account with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and the online magazine Slate, according to interviews, notes and text messages reviewed by The New York Times

      Yes, she met him at a golf club, where else. He also kissed another woman and offered her $10,000 for sex. He's a pig. A racist, awful, terrible man. America has been conned, and we will regret last fall forever.

      $130,000 pay out, well she sold herself short, why so little money?

      mr "I make billions and billions " could have afforded a bigger bribe to keep her mouth shut, guess she isn't very bright.

    Since when does Jesse Watters speak for people in Wisconsin? What a boob. This guy was born and raised on the East Coast and he hasn't got a clue about people in the Midwest. People all over the country, heh, the world, know a racist rant when they hear it, whether it comes from Fox news or the idiot in the White House.

    F-you, Watters. And while I'm at it, F-you, Tucker.

    Almost without exception Republicans in power (at least at the federal level) are lying shitheads. The plebeian idiots who vote for them are (at the very least) ignoramuses with their heads filled with plutocratic propaganda. Of course, racism is a major component used by the plutocrats to get dummies to vote against their self interests. I wonder how these dummies will respond to severely diminished Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security and major non-expiring tax breaks for corporations and the uber wealthy.

      This is very true. I live in a lower middle class primarily Republican area which went to Trump, outside of PHila. And last Nov we went Democratic in the local elections. Shocking and wonderful and a preview of what is to come.

    And yet despite all we have seen and heard, he is still viewed favorably by evangelicals and the rank and file 'family values' republicans. What does that say about them? What it says to me is these folks are the worst of the worst but they cloak themselves in 'holier than thou' BS. Their true nature is selfish, dishonest, uncharitable, intolerant, hypocritical, mean spirited, bullying, racist, and on, and on, and on. This country has millions of these feces flinging morons.

    Donald Trump tried to hire a convicted criminal in newly unearthed plot against President Obama

    ...It’s worth noting that by this time O’Keefe was already a convicted criminal, having been sentenced to probation for having broken into the offices of Louisiana Governor Mary Landrieu (link). This means Trump was trying to hire a known convicted criminal to commit a crime. Even after O’Keefe turned Trump down, Trump continued to ask O’Keefe to break into Columbia. According to O’Keefe, he never did pursue the break-in. But considering Trump’s persistence on the matter, we must now investigate whether Trump did end up hiring someone else to commit the crime in question.

    So now, at the end of a week which has seen Donald Trump saying that he doesn’t want immigrants coming into the United States from (black) countries like Haiti because they’re “shithole countries,” we’re now learning that Trump’s racist obsession with President Obama runs even deeper than we knew.

    Robert Mueller takes possession of even more Donald Trump team laptops and cellphones

    ...It was Rachael Maddow who discovered that in Mueller’s latest court filings in the case against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, the Mueller team is now disclosing possession of eighty-seven electronic devices, as opposed to just thirty-six such devices a month ago. That means that in the past month, Mueller and his team have somehow come into possession of an additional fifty-plus laptops and cellphones from Trump’s people. Here’s what that means in terms of prosecution and the overall investigation.

    Oh come on…

    ...So as the day went on, journalists all faced the same question: put the primary focus on Trump’s shithole scandal or Trump’s porn scandal? What about Trump’s Russian treason scandal? Then there was the statement put out by the White House today which claimed to be from a military doctor, and claimed that Trump was in “excellent health.” However, the doctor’s name was spelled wrong. So either this military doctor is so illiterate he can’t spell his own name, or Trump’s people faked the quote and spelled his name wrong.

    It is very concerning that Cotton and Purdue have trouble recalling what was said in a meeting one day previously. These people are being paid to pay attention - it is part of the job they were elected and are paid to do. If they can't recall, maybe they need a mini mental test as well.

  22. Anonymous3:25 PM

    Hey you cotton and gop who can't recall sh$thole countries statments voters, maybe they are insane do maybe you should all recall them today.

  23. Really? Of all those in the meeting it’s LINDSAY GRAHAM that calls out Trump?

    But to his discredit, only behind closed doors. He wasn’t said anything in public or to the media. He left that to Durbin.
