Not everyone is the president. We have troops and deals all over African continent. He endangered all of that.

Basically.

"Calling something a # hole is racist. But I'm moving to Canada if Trump wins".

"Um, why not move to Mexico instead"?

"Because Mexico is a # hole".

There is no where to go today that you don’t hear or see the word s###hole and Africa and Norway. And he did have an audience unless he’s talking to himself now.

I've been on ATS long enough and read enough to know where you're coming from. I get it.


I was attempting to explain why there is also an opposite view. When someone says the same things as racists do, people group them together with the racists. That he doesn't distance himself gets added to the conviction. It's reasonable.

Personally, I don't believe anyone has a requirement or duty to decry everything. Certainly not for social acceptance. Social media means opinions *define* us and it's a stupid way to judge people imao. A reason I can socialise or work with racists is because they can still be decent people. I have a problem with racist acts more than with racist opinions although I'm generally not interested in hearing them.


It used to be the way that politics was a private thing to avoid arguments. Nowadays it's a signal and an identity.

Lindsey Graham apparently called Trump out on it acco rding to this.
If you read the comments from the other GOP senators closely they are very carefully phrased. Not 'He didn't say that', more on the lines of 'I don't recall him saying that'. Cowards.

Probably best not to insult other countries in front of witnesses then.

The reactions to Trumps words is proof that those countries are sh!tholes, if they were not sh!tholes, there would be proof of it to shove in Trumps face......but alas, there is no proof that those countries are not sh!tholes, left-leaning twitter is ignoring this little conundrum.

I wonder how many have actually traveled to/thru the African continent to see for themselves whether Trumps trigger-word was appropriate or not?

Also, can someone with good lateral thinking skills explain why emotionally scarred humans equate 'sh!thole' with 'racist'? I liken this slop-thinking to those that label anyone who is anti-Islam as 'racist'.

This cracks me up - Trump speaks and the reactions from the eager-to-be-offended is further proof that all rational thinking and adult conduct goes out the window when you're being paid / gleefully brainwashed to be a political #wit.

Should a president, who has to maintain diplomatic relations with ALL countries, be referring to other countries as S-holes?

Is that by any means a smart thing to do?

I know the first thing I do when trying to negotiate anything is insult the person I’m negotiating with.

Where has modern decency gone?

It’s funny because practically every day from 2009-2016 on ATS there would be comments about President Obama being divisive and using divisive rhetoric. I’ve never seen anybody say this about President Trump, who talks as if he’s a 4chan troll. In fact it’s quite the opposite, people applaud him for “pissing off leftists” (whatever that means).

Do you really think he's the first president to say such a thing behind closed doors? Certainly not. Probably happens quite frequently.

The problem here is that one of Dems, due to a political agenda, leaked it to the media in an attempt for political gain.

Of course, there's a good possibility he didn't even say it and it's just more political nonsense.

Behind closed doors, among members of his own team? Why not?

Id bet all sorts of things are said behind closed doors that would piss off everyone. Why would anyone go blab about them unless their entire purpose was simply to stir up some # in that hole we are talking about?

HAHAHAHA!!!

Have you not lived in this modern world before?

I prefer real talk to pandering.

I find it funny, that people instantly believe Trump said this based on pure hearsay, but will immediately discount LBJ's reported racial slurred quote about black people...... interesting, that.

You realize President Trumps “trolling” extends beyond this comment.

It’s also extremely weak to defend President Trump saying this by using excuses a child would use:

-“I’m not the only one who’s done this”
-“It wouldn’t be a problem if nobody told”


It would be a non-issue if President Trump didn’t say it. I know you left the caveat that he didn’t, but I’d say it’s more probable than not he did. I’d say the Browns have a greater shot at winning the Super Bowl this season than President Trump actually didn’t say what he’s claimed to have said. Vegas couldn’t set the line high enough if you were able to bet on what he said.

If you want to blame others, that’s your prerogative. I wouldn’t accept that as an excuse from my own children, let alone the President.
