So is it racist for me to call Haiti a #hole?
I'm British, maybe my ancestors bought sugar off the French and that would make me culpable and racist?

It would not make you racist BUT would make your comments ignorant and irresponsible.

Apparently lying about White House meetings was not restricted to just Republican Presidents. Durbin apparently did the same thing.... with Obama.

Caught This Time – Wha… Dick Durbin A Liar ? Gee, Ya Don’t Say….


Democrat Senator and Lib-Hack Media Darling, Dick Durbin, wanted to enhance the 36 hour Tea Party Racist narrative by claiming loudly a “GOP Leader” told President Obama: “I Cannot Even Stand To Look At You”. However, President Obama, and others in the room (via Jay Carney) say “that never happened”.

Aww, thank you. Now remember, this isn't the mud pit, so why don't you take your childish little contribution off to the playroom and come back when you have something worthwhile to contribute, the adults are talking.

thought this was relevant since people seem to want to change the english language and definition of words

rac·ist
ˈrāsəst/Submit
noun
1.
a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
"the comments have led to her being called a racist"
synonyms: racial bigot, racialist, xenophobe, chauvinist, supremacist More
adjective
1.
showing or feeling discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or believing that a particular race is superior to another.
"we are investigating complaints about racist abuse at the club"

now tell me how calling a country a $hithole has anything to do with race unless your going to pull out some rascist view that every country is made up of a certain race, but thats on YOU

This has absolutely nothing to do with race. I absolutely laugh my a$$ off every time I read dribble like this.



Fred..



Then why did trump hold up Haiti and Africa as examples of 'bad immigrants' and Norway, the whitest of white countries, as a place where 'good immigrants' come from?

Serious question. Why do you think that was? Why did he pick Norway as good, and Haiti and Africa as bad?

maybe this is why
"The Norwegian public education system is one of the best in Europe, and the general level of education in Norway is higher than the European average. In Norway, the education system is made up of primary school (Barneskole), lower secondary school (Ungdomsskole) and upper secondary school (Videregående skole)."

Haiti is a sh#thole. I don't care how you want to slice it. And, the race card is getting old.

this was in fact a very stupid statement to make, in private

I do wonder though how all of these virtue signalers speak about others especially conservatives in private??

A lie is a lie who ever says it, that includes Trump! You're trying to justify Trump's lying by pointing the finger at Durbin! You're a typical Trump supporter! Always pointing the finger at somebody else in order to avoid and deflect the issue at hand. Why don't you bring up Nixon, the Bush's and Clinton too! They're all fair game.

I never even mentioned Dick Durbin and honestly I don't trust any politician from either party. However, in all my years and I'm in my late 50's, I've never seen a president or politician lie as blatantly and as often as Trump. Nor have I ever seen a politician or president be caught in so many lies when there's videos that prove it!

Sure any politician will lie, but to lie as ignorantly as Trump does really shows his lack of intelligence. He says things without even researching the facts! He blamed the Obama Administration for making the decision to sell the old U.S. embassy...


The Obama Administration didn't make the decision to sell the embassy, though the deal was finished when Obama was in office. The move to leave the old embassy began in 2008, under George W Bush, as can be seen from the fact that the embassy itself posted a news release at the time.



Even the Bush administration didn't really make that decision, though, since it wasn't entirely theirs to sell. The US didn't own the embassy but leased it from the Duke of Westminster – a strange arrangement that made it unique among US embassies and led to protracted and often fractious negotiations as the Americans looked to sort it out.


Independent

For a president who likes to tweet and doesn't confide in his own advisers before he speaks, he might as well learn how to google his facts before he talks.

Duhhhhhh!

Just one example of many that proves this president is incompetent and doesn't research anything before he speaks.

Because he had a meeting with Norway that day most likely. Even did a joint press conference.

It was stupid and Trump does it constantly hes a very negative person. This is why people attack him he is incapable of inspiring people without trying to use division.

I wonder what leaked conversations with Obama would sound like when he thought his conversations were private?
