Graham, Scott said, told him the reported comments are “basically accurate.”

“If that comment is accurate, the comment is incredibly disappointing,” Scott also told The Post and Courier on Friday morning.

1. And they are calling the two who are now lying about it, liars.

I think the time for talking and listening to their lies is near over.

2. Repugs are scrambling to either defend him or say nothing.

I'm hearing excuses. Repugs like him talking that way. It's a 'positive' for them. The base is orgasmic today.

3. Just wait until he uses the N word in public.

His approval numbers will be the highest they've ever been.

5. yeah, what you said.

Why are so many GOPhers coming out with such lame criticism of this despicable pResident's DESPICABLE remarks?? If Obama had said something so nasty, you could bet your lottery winnings they'd be howling like a pack of wolves in heat.

7. Thats a terrible headline

It sounds like Scott is agreeing with Trump, that he was right to call the countries shitholes, rather than Trump really said it.
