Here is a "shithole country" that gave us this woman...

Nancy Abu-Bonsrah Johns Hopkins First Black Female Neurosurgeon Resident





The most important day for fourth year medical students is the third Friday in March, when they find out where they have been accepted for their residency program. Itís called Match Day. For medical student Nancy Abu-Bonsrah, it also became the day she made history as the first Black woman to become a neurosurgery resident at Johns Hopkins Hospital.



After moving from Ghana to the United States with her parents at age 15, Abu-Bonsrah went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and chemistry from Mount St. Maryís University. In 2012, she started her medical student journey at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where she will graduate as the first doctor in her family. Upon completion of her neurosurgery training residency program, Abu-Bonsrah is also set to become the first Black woman neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins. Abu-Bonsrah shared the good news on her personal Facebook page.

Congratulations for all your hard work, Nancy. Johns Hopkins, First Black Female Neurosurgeon Resident. Brava. You are an inspiration to girls everywhere and to think that you are an immigrant from Ghana.

Trump hates women like her, she just isn't white enough. A brilliant black woman from, according to Trump, a "shithole country" just isn't good enough for America according to the dumb ass racist, sexist pig that resides in our white house.

1. Congratulations Nancy! Good for her!

I love hearing about success stories like this! She makes Trump look like the worthless, idiotic piece of shit that he is.

2. I find it very sad that we have a pResident that does not believe in science.

Nor does he believe in medical innovations. Neurology is something he should be haling as he is in dire need of neurological assistance.

achieved when she got her shot at the American Dream. I hope one of our Democrats invites her as a guest to the State of the Union speech.

8. Republicans in general hate accomplished women,

especially non-white ones. They must feel totally insecure to not appreciate intelligence in others. They can't compete intellectually so they drag out the childish putdowns.

10. "Republicans in general hate accomplished women, especially non-white ones."

Sad, but true fact.

The GOP, basically all male, seem to be very insecure with women and women of color. They are terrified of us because they know we are coming for them. Their time is over.

14. Speaking of coming for them...

are you going to the March this year? I know your time is tight now. My sister and I are going to Asheville, NC. I'm not sure we can go the entire route, but it appears to be fairly flat, so we will give it a try. We missed it last year because both of us were nursing bad backs, but we feel pretty good right now. We certainly feel both the need and urgency to make the statement...LOUDLY.

17. Pretty sure it is not a moms day.

My friend has not gotten back to me. I want to be there. I did it with a bum leg last year. The crowd was massive and it was over six hours from start to finish. We were stuck inside the Boston Common after the speech's...took over an hour to get out after that just to march. Lol~ don't drink much water...we could not see a potty.

It was awesome. It started out as a gloomy day...the speeches started and then the sun broke through and shined on us all.

Think about that. The sun came out to shine on women.

PS..............my friend just texted me. We are ON!

I love this.

12. She'll be spending her career operating on people's brains. Meanwhile Trump can barely read.

And yet somehow in his warped mind he's more successful and important than her, all because of the color of their skin. That's pretty much white privilege in a nutshell.

23. I know a family from Ghana who settled Los Angeles in the '60s.

The parents worked hard and were able to send 3 children to local Catholic schools. The kids grew up, attended college and are now in their early forties. One is a doctor and the two others are registered nurses.

29. What a beautiful story.

THIS is what being an American means. Ah, I am struggling tonight. Full of emotion and bile in my throat towards the pResident of the People's House who harbors such contempt for immigrants, women, people of color and anyone who is not born in his image. There are people cheering for him tonight and it is heartbreaking.

Thank you she for this ray of sunshine....I sorely needed it tonight. Cheers for Dr. Abu-Bonsrah!!!!

31. Bravo, Ms. Abu-Bonsrah. Thank you for choosing this country as the place worthy of your brilliance.

The horrible lurch this country has taken will deprive us of many fine young people such as yourself.
The Orange nutcase and his idiot followers arenít worth your fingernail clippings. They donít deserve you and what you have already accomplished in your young life.
But the many people whose lives will be saved or made
much better because of all the hard work youíve put in do deserve you. But you already know that. Blessings upon you.

35. My son's best friend is an immigrant from Ghana on a full-ride graduate scholarship to JHU.

Worked his way through community college in Indiana as a janitor, and was accepted into Johns Hopkins. Straight A's, profoundly intelligent and moral, now he's going to grad school. My boy's a Bloomberg scholar, Phi Beta Kappa, says that George is the smartest and hardest-working student on the planet.

Sad that we would even have to offer up examples. The truth is that the Wretched Refuse has always been what makes us strong as a nation. It's always been the truth. And idiots like President Shithole are what makes us weak.

41. Yes maybe the countries ..... but not the people !!

Knowing of the grinding widespread poverty and privation in Haiti and some of the African countries, I might be inclined to bundled them in the category used by Donald Trump (probably cleaning up the name of the category for family TV), but that is the reason so many of the people there want to come here. The people themselves are usually hardworking, industrious, intelligent, and honest and they frequently arrive with little more than the clothes on their back and within a decade or so are very solid members of thriving communities, with children who can aspire to even better thing (something not possible in their home country).

Sending refugees and immigrants back to countries recognized for being so backward and wretched is practically a war crime.

And, while it's easy to disparage Haiti and much of Africa, I really really doubt that Norway is as poor, backward, corrupt, and benighted.
