Eagles' Carson Wentz shares his love of Haiti in wake of President Trump's 's--thole' comment

PHILADELPHIA - Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz spiked the notion that Haiti is a “s--thole.”

Wentz, who tore up his knee in December, was not available to help the Birds in Saturday’s NFC divisional playoff game against Atlanta. But the hobbled QB landed a pretty good crackback in support of Haiti following President Trump’s blistering remarks in which he called it and some African nations “s--thole countries.”

“Much love for the people of Haiti! They’ve been thru so much but it was incredible to see so much hope in them — even tho they’ve been stricken by so many natural disasters,” Wentz tweeted Friday night while his teammates were probably tossing and turning in anticipation of Saturday’s big game.

“Such a resilient nation & a place I’m passionate about. Definitely changed @jmattjmattjmatt and I forever!”

Wentz and former teammate Jordan Matthews, named in the tweet, traveled to Haiti last season.

“Couldn’t have said it better Brother,” Matthews responded on social media. “Amazing country with even better people!”

The two went to Haiti last year on a mission with fellow members of Connect Church in Cherry Hill, N.J., to volunteer, paint houses, and gain a better understanding of what the community there needs.
