Trump’s Comments on Haiti and Africa

We have a situation.”

The Democrats and their allies in the media are going crazy over President Trump’s comment about Haiti and certain African countries being shit holes (Hell, if CNN and the newspapers can use the term, I might as well.) Trump purportedly (He denies it) asked why we are bringing in immigrants from shit hole countries as opposed to say, Norway, whose prime minster was a White House guest this week. His remark was made this week during a White House meeting with both Republican and Democrat leaders.

Assuming Trump said it, it was a big mistake at least diplomatically. Haiti has already condemned the remark. Trump also should have assumed that Democrats like Dick Durban would keep it a secret. That would be akin to asking an elephant to pass the peanuts. Now Trump has to endure reporters  shouting, “Are you a racist?” at him.

However, what Trump said is something most of us would say in a bar. That includes me. There are plenty of countries I consider as being “shit hole” countries. I have never been to Haiti, nor have I visited any African countries except Egypt. Yet my perception of Haiti and most African countries is that they are failed states run by corrupt and dictatorial rulers without full human rights. Does that make them “shit hole” countries? You tell me.

Yet, that doesn’t mean that everybody who comes from  a “shit hole” country is a shit hole person. Quite the contrary. Every country, including ours, has both good and bad people.We have millions of good people in our country who came from those “shit hole” countries.

When you are president of the United States. there are certain things you don’t say in public or in front of people who will taddle on you in a New York minute. Once again, Trump has put his foot in his mouth.

Yet, I cannot ignore the sheer hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton’s tweet today condemning Trump for the comment. This coming from the same family and their fraudulent foundation that looted Haiti after their tragic earthquake.

Of course, all of this distraction enables the media to avoid having an honest discussion about the achievements of the Trump presidency, such as the economic recovery and the fact that ISIS has been driven from their “caliphates” in Iraq and Syria. They (the media) can also ignore the information flowing out about how the Obama Justice Department reportedly used the discredited Russian Dossier to apply for a FISA warrant against the Trump team during the campaign. They can also continue to ignore the Hillary scandals, such as how she and the DNC rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders and how the FBI under James Comey fixed the outcome of their email investigation to exonerate her no matter what.

No indeed. Trump called Haiti a “shit hole”.
