President Donald Trump denied making a widely condemned comment railing against accepting immigrants from ´s***hole countries,´ even as he admitted to using ´tough´ language in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers. ´The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,´ Trump wrote, using unusually passive language in an effort to walk back the comment. ´What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!´ Trump tweeted Friday. The tweet came hours after a bombshell report about Trump´s comments, which the White House did not immediately deny. Trump made a public
Even if he said it, oh my goodness "s**t" is such a vulgar word, right? I hope everyone who is criticizing him for this remark never, ever uses that word. Hypocrites.
I will go a step farther. These liberals live in a fantasy world. They find this word to be vulgar yet I find the act of abortion vulgar. I find all of the murder going on to be vulgar. The corruption and the dark side of the drug-laden world fits right in there with my definition of vulgar.
These liberals are so delicate aren´t they that they can´t stand the word "s**t." Every day New Yorkers use it constantly. I know of a person who went there on a business trip and was amazed at the language coming from the person he had to interact with; it caught him off guard.
In all previous years, the libs have made accusations, mixed words, distorted truths and the politician would fold like a cheap suit. I don´t know what Trump said, and I really don´t care. Stand up for yourself President Trump. The media/dems have NEVER had anyone stand up to them.
Now that the damage is done...no apology is needed because Leftist are telepathetic and they know that´s what he meant.
Enjoyed watching Tucker dismantle some Latino sniveler who could not be forced to answer the simple question:"Do American Citizens have the right to choose who shall be allowed to enter their country ?"
The guy filibustered 20+ times to avoid the question.
Tucker was warm and polite and pleasant and deadly.
I don´t care if PT said s**thole or not. That´s what those countries are. Libtards want all these people coming here from those countries so they can vote for even more freebies than those they´re getting. What a life. They never had it so good. Us taxpayers, State & Fed, not so much.
The globalists have decreed from their walled mansions that America is designated to take in all the dregs of the world from failed states that are so corrupt that their people will never get ahead no matter how much they work or produce. If the RAT policies prevail of putting their party and votes before the welfare of America then America too will become a S***hole country. The many nations that have merit based immigration policies are piling on condemning Trump for advocating it in America. The RATS respond with calling Trump racist for this remark. It has nothing to do with race. I understand him very well! Some reports identified Haiti as the country being discussed. Wait! Wasn´t Haiti looked after by big $$$$ from the Clinton Foundation? Oh yes that is right. Haiti has a corrupt government and the Clinton Foundation that supposedly helped them is also corrupt. Did Trump mention any of that?
How did this get out (whatever his disparaging word was to describe these desperate third world nations)? Was it taped and played for news networks? Filmed and witnessed by millions? Or, was it leaked? If it were leaked, who exactly was there? Who is the likely leaker or are they all suspect? President Trump, apparently can trust NO ONE. Sickening.
The outrage is hilarious. I´m outraged at the outrage.
I, myself, do not use such language. However, I´m more disgusted that in a "closed door" meeting someone was so quick to jump out the door and call the WaPo with such a "scoop". PDT is not known for his diplomatic speech, he´s known for his frankness. "He who is without sin cast the first stone". If he said this, and I do mean "if", he meant, I´m sure, the hand-out governments that take our money and send us refugees. He doesn´t dislike the people--of that I´m confident. He dislikes the leaders of these countries that take the US for granted, take our tax-payer money, and for it we get nothing.
Mia Love put out a statement that her parents came from such a country and she was offended, demanding an apology. If her parents came legally, which I´m sure they did, then he wasn´t talking about them. I for one am glad the President of our country is on our side, not wanting us to be taken for granted and exploited.
But, this is still a big "if". He says he didn´t say it but did use tough language. He´s got enemies on all sides looking to bring him down. Much as it might be rhetoric, the tough language will continue to bring criticism and outrage from them.
Trump is riding so high with us that we don´t care what language he uses, we´re all thinking it and we are right. We have worked hard to build our own lives and have no obligation to share with people who have abandoned their families so they can live for free here.
I hope #16 recognized that trait in Barack Obama and Hillary because that is the only reason they were popular with the dimocrats. Trump does NOT lie although he sometimes exaggerates - that´s known as raising the bar a little higher.
After so large a fraction of us say "Hell, yes!" and only the liars who made it up, hoping to smear Trump, are opposed to the term.
Most Americans recognize the fundemental truth of the term, and while many would avoid the crude word in polite company, my bet is "among the boys" this term is extremely common. It is for me in the socially appropriate situation.
Well from now on President Trump must reliize that he can no longer hold “closed door” meetings with the Democrats, and some Republicans at the White House, without “the nuts and bolts” of the meetings being immediately leaked to the liberal media in an effort to embarrass Trump and his political position.
Everybody knows that Trump is not politically correct and tells it like he sees it, sometimes in direct and tough language. That particular meeting involved Trump and a few Democrat and Republican Senators, some of them who have always been amnesty supporters who claimed that they had reached a bipartisan deal on a DACA amnesty. That proposed deal was rejected by Trump, so those Senators went out and immediately told the liberal media that Trump used profanity during the meeting, and there is no doubt that the media then used that information to mischaracterize whatever Trump said.
Can you imagine what would have happened during the very profane Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) era if certain Senators at a close door White House meeting had come out claiming that LBJ had used profanity in the meeting. One thing is for sure, those Senators would never see the inside of the White House until after LBJ left office.
Based on what has happened since Trump assumed office with leaks, Trump is right to record all such future White House meetings.
#16 post ONE verifiable example. NOT what you think, not what you heard repeated, not ´verified´ by a leftist site which turned out to be another passed on false report, just ONE lie. You can´t of course because that fact would be all democrats need to build another witch hunt around.
I hope this is verified and that Durbin is proved to be a liar on camera.
White House staff planning to assist President Donald Trump in his delayed ´Fake News Awards´ may risk running afoul of ethics laws, according to ethics experts. President Trump has repeatedly touted the awards, scheduled for January 17, after some delays, hyping the otherwise unexplained event on his Twitter account. As president, he is free to engage in uninhibited political activity – but the same may not hold true for aides working on the government dime. ´WARNING to White House staff: the president may be exempt from the rules ... on misuse of position BUT YOU ARE NOT,´ wrote Obama ethics czar Norm Eisen,
Somebody needs to tell Mahmoud Abbas that the jig is up, the game is over. Wait. My mistake. President Trump did that already but Abbas still fails to get the message. Ditto the Democrats who can’t get it through their thick skulls that they lost, Trump won. He won even as Liberals try every Dirty Trick to unseat him from one false charge to another; last month’s Russia collusion, last week’s mental unfitness, and today’s accusation that he’s a racist. Trump is no racist, quite the opposite if the Mar-a-Lago story ever gets told…which we’ll do in a moment. Nor can Liberals, from
President Trump seemed delighted to crash a women´s event held on the White House campus Tuesday, which was also attended by his daughter Ivanka Trump and top aide Kellyanne Conway. ´I really appreciate you all being here, it´s an honor,´ said the president during brief remarks at the Conversations with Women in America event, which wasn´t on Trump´s official schedule. ´Again, when I heard I ran across the street and ... now I´m going to run back to the Oval Office.´ Trump used the opportunity to tout the economic gains women have made during his almost one-year tenure. We are making incredible

Four law enforcement officers were shot and wounded while responding to a domestic call in South Carolina overnight. Police were called to a home on Farrier Lane around 10:10 pm Monday night, for a report of a domestic violence incident. Suspect Christian Thomas McCall, 47, was reportedly assaulting a female, but by the time officers arrived on the scene, he had fled on foot. Several law enforcement agencies then banded together to search for McCall. At 1:07am, shots rang out and a York police officer was found injured. He was driven to the Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill in another officer´s car.
Thousands of people put at risk by a volcanic eruption in Papua New Guinea have been evacuated by the authorities. Eruptions on Kadovar Island in the East Sepik region of the South Pacific island led to Prime Minister Peter O´Neill orchestrating the evacuation. It is feared further eruptions might occur in the nation´s north, the government said on Monday. Mr O´Neill also warned northern coastal communities to be alert for possible tsunamis resulting from volcanic activity. ´Volcanoes are very unpredictable. We are hearing various reports that activity has been building up and we need to take all precautions to keep
This is the shocking moment a massive brawl broke out in a California pizza restaurant over a missing iPhone that turned out to have been in the lost and found the whole time. Police were called to John´s Incredible Pizza Company in Newark´s NewPark Mall on Saturday night after violence erupted. It broke out after a girl missing her phone had approached a group to see if they´d seen it but quickly descended into chaos, with video showing two large groups of people exchanging blows and screaming at each other. Newark police officers had to call in officers from the Fremont Police Department
RAF Typhoon fighter jets have been scrambled to intercept Russian planes as they approached UK airspace this morning - the latest in a series of provocations by Moscow. Royal Air Force Typhoons took off from the Lossiemouth airbase, north east Scotland, just before 9.30am. A spokesman said: “We can confirm that quick reaction alert Typhoon aircraft from RAF Lossiemouth scrambled this morning, this is a live operation and therefore we will not be providing any additional information until the mission is complete.” The operation is currently "ongoing" and the type of Russian plane has not yet been confirmed. It comes
NEWCASTLE Airport has been closed due to firefighters battling a nearby blaze with all flights being grounded until further notice from authorities as smoke and flames threaten the region. The New South Wales airport has been closed due to water bombing activity near the runway. Authorities are planning to reassess the situation later. In a statement the Newcastle Airport said: “The safety of our passengers is paramount and we will continue to work with local emergency authorities to monitor the nearby fire and provide more information to the public as it becomes available.” More to follow…
President Donald Trump has denied he is a racist in response to controversy over his recent remarks. ´I´m not a racist. I´m the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you,´ he told reporters in Florida on Sunday, as he was on his way to dinner with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. It marks the president´s first direct response to accusations of racism that have dogged him since he allegedly asked ´Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?´ in an Oval Office meeting about immigration earlier this week. Trump has denied
VANCOUVER - Foreign ministers from around 20 nations gather on Tuesday to discuss how to curb North Korea’s nuclear ambitions through diplomatic and financial pressure, but China, seen as a key player in any long-term solution, will be absent. The Vancouver meeting, co-hosted by Canada and the United States, comes amid signs that tensions on the peninsula have eased, at least temporarily. North and South Korea held talks for the first time in two years last week and Pyongyang says it will send athletes across the border to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. But the United States and others say the international
Did Trump misspeak…use a slur to make a point…and thereby arouse all those dainty Liberals into a snit? Not far from where I’m writing this, the kosher butcher shop is long gone; across the street, the church that once stood tall is now boarded up. But next to it stands a mosque newly built and freshly painted. English in the neighborhood is a foreign tongue and nobody knows Frank Sinatra. The boys don’t play stickball. The girls in their veils don’t play hopscotch and all the cabs are driven by men from Somalia and Afghanistan. Strangers are not greeted warmly. That’s a snapshot of what
NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), no doubt gearing up to run for president in 2020, became unhinged during Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.Booker glared crazily at Nielsen as he smashed his fists in protest of President Trump’s alleged “S***hole,” comments made during a meeting with Democrats on DACA. (Photo/Tweet/Video) Daily Caller published a partial transcript of Booker’s tirade: “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting. “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss
On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise. Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump. Okay, actions speak louder than words, if you want to begin, just begin that long road back to proving you’re not a racist, you’re not bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and
Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”
Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real
A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up
From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) on Monday threw his support behind former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is reportedly weighing a Senate run in Utah. Mitt would make a phenomenal addition to the U.S. Senate. I hope he runs. https://t.co/3Vcg6txQmN — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) January 15, 2018 Bush´s endorsement on Twitter comes shortly after Romney criticized President Trump for reportedly describing African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week.
Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.
The sign at Costco explaining the jacked up price of a case of Gatorade has gone viral. (Photo/Tweet) On January 1, Seattle had several new progressive laws go into effect. Along with mandatory paid sick leave, mandates for employers to post work schedules 14 days in advance, and severe restrictions on short-term rental platforms (Airbnb, VRBO, etc.), Seattle imposed a massive new soda tax — 1.75 cents per OUNCE on sugary drinks.In response, at least one major retailer advertised in detail the reason for the significant increase in prices. Costco, famous for selling products in bulk quantities, faces especially stiff
