Dem lawmaker: Why do we allow presidents from 's---hole companies' like Trump Org?

Source: The Hill



BY BRETT SAMUELS - 01/11/18 05:22 PM EST

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.) on Thursday fired back at a report that President Trump questioned why the U.S. accepts immigrants from “shithole” countries by asking “why [do] we allow president from sh*thole companies like the Trump Organization."




The Washington Post reported that Trump made the remark during a meeting with other lawmakers to discuss protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) were reportedly present at the meeting, and were surprised by the comments, according to the Post.

Trump reportedly suggested in the meeting that the U.S. should instead seek to bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday.

2. Immigrants from Norway?

Is that really a thing? I mean now, not in the past like fleeing from Nazi's during WW2. Now days, immigrating to the US is coming to the Nazis.

16. Years ago, there was a Norwegian student at MIT who was killed in a knife attack.

The attacker was a local high-school student.
There was some controversy over it. I think the parents said something about not believing that kind of thing could happen in the US.

I'm guessing Norwegians probably look at the US as a shithole country.

14. Right.

In Norway, they have single-payer insurance, excellent education, a good society.

Here -- we have Republicans.

18. A glimmer of hope

If any of this push-back from this crass, insensitive and totally unpresidential remark should register in his feeble grasp of reality, and then show up at 45’s upcoming physical exam, it could drive his blood pressure to dangerously high levels, cause a bleeding ulcer, induce kidney failure, blinding migraines or other debilitating ailment that would conclusively prove his unfitness to command. Then my faith in Karma will be restored.

Yeah, I know: fat-fucking-chance! I said “glimmer.”

20. Why do we allow

politicians from a sh*thole party--that does nothing but spread misery in the service of greed--to steal elections and stage a coup in this country?
