Durbin fires back at Trump denial: 'He said those hateful things, and he said them repeatedly'

Source: The Hill




BY BRANDON CARTER - 01/12/18 09:38 AM EST




Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) fired back at President Trump for denying that he called Haiti and African countries “shithole countries,” saying Trump’s denials are “not true.”

“In the course of his comments, [Trump] said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist,” Durbin told reporters on Friday. “I cannot believe in this history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.”

Durbin was one of several lawmakers in the meeting during which Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries,” according to The Washington Post.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump reportedly said.
Trump then said the U.S. should bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway.

6. Don't hold your breath.

If trump doesn't have blackmail material on Graham, then Graham ought to stop acting as if that's the case.

12. the fact that it took him so long to actually deny saying it

and that Trump surrogates were defending him saying it last night on the news means that it is true.

11. There is another vital component of those vile and racist statements

that is often overlooked. Namely that it makes POC targets for hate crimes and justifies somehow treating them differently. In this case it is not only what trump does, it’s what he says. There are very real consequences.

14. Where were you?

Where were the rest of the meeting attendees (fellow repugs) in denouncing tRUMP's language? Where? Obviously they condone this kind of language or explain it away as locker room talk.

Garbage...it's time to step forward and stop this idiotic sideshow in the WH...what an moronic idiotic...
