It’s (insert any day of the week here), which means it’s time for leftists to cry themselves silly over something Trump did or said. Today it’s the way the president referred to certain countries. Spoiler: he used the term “sh*thole.”
During an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers on Thursday to discuss immigration, Trump reportedly questioned why the U.S. accepts so many immigrants from “shithole countries” while discussing Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries.
Actually, he has a point. Haiti, El Salvador, and numerous African countries aren’t what you’d call a utopia. Unless it was Opposite Day. In which case, let’s throw a few compliments Hillary’s way while we’re at it, like “her face definitely doesn’t resemble the leathery undersack of a beached manatee.”
In short? These countries are steaming heaps of dung. Hence all the immigrants fleeing from them in escapist fashion. Of course, we shouldn’t punish or elevate immigrants based on their countries of descent, but let’s not beat around the bush here — some cultures and countries are better than others.
That notion alone is all too triggering for some mewling milquetoast. Let the hysterics begin!

Look, sometimes Trump’s mouth resembles a puckered anal cavity from which words flow loosely and freely. We get it (see Donald Trump Threatens to Pull NBC News Media License). But to conflate this with racism is giggle inducing. The left has become the boy who cried “RACIST!” This little tantrum just punctuates their desperation.
