Scott denounces Trumps 'shithole' Haiti comments as Democrats see opportunity

Source: Politico



By MARC CAPUTO 01/11/2018 11:25 PM EST

MIAMI — Gov. Rick Scott distanced himself Thursday from President Donald Trump’s undisputed comments calling Haiti and some African nations “shithole” countries — remarks that Democrats say could cost him if he runs for U.S. Senate.

Scott, who is being recruited by Trump to run against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, stopped just short of a blanket denouncement of the president’s comments by saying he condemned them “if” the media reports about them were true. Neither the White House nor a fellow Florida Republican who was in the room during an immigration reform meeting disputed the president's racial remarks.

“If this report is true, it is absolutely wrong to say or think this,” Scott said in a written statement. “I do not think this way, nor do I agree with this kind of sentiment. I represent Florida, and we are an amazing melting pot where over 250 languages are spoken.”

“I work every day to make this the most welcoming state for everyone — Haitians, Cubans, Venezuelans, and others from all around the world that call Florida home,” Scott said. “I’m incredibly proud of our diversity.”

1. They always add that "if". Like as if people make up the crap that comes out of his mouth

and off his twittering thumb so they can't quite believe he would say something like that.

3. "I do not think this way,"

YES you do. EVERYONE in YOUR PARTY is tied to this. It is YOUR party's platform and Drumpf is the "head" of your party.

See... thousands upon thousands of Puerto Ricans have arrived on your shore and they will hopefully get registered and make sure your ass and every other GOP ass, doesn't get elected to anything anywhere.

4. In my middle ages, I worked in nursing homes across the state of Florida

Besides being hard workers, it would be wise to be kind to the hatian folks who care for us in our dotaring years

8. Yeah, these guys are cowards in denouncing language like this...period.

In no civilized conversation would this type of language ever be condoned...period. A disgusting POS as well as his cronies...this is obviously party over country now...

We now know for a 100% (although it was hard to deny it before that tRUMP was a bigot and racist based upon his prior language and actions) what tRUMP and fellow congressional cronies are truly like...
