Trump responds to 's***hole' outcry with 'America First!' tweet

Source: The Hill




BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/13/18 08:24 AM EST

President Trump is responding to the widespread condemnation of his remarks about immigrants from "shithole countries" with a two-word tweet: "America First!"

Trump offered the tweet at 8:14 a.m. with little other comment. And while the tweet didn't cite the criticism of his reported comments at a meeting with lawmakers in the White House, it was hard to see the words as anything but a response to that controversy.




America First is one of the hallmarks of Trump's presidency, and reflects his stance on immigration.

Trump wants to change the rules for entering the United States, and stepped into controversy when he said the nation should be seeking immigrants from countries such as Norway instead of countries such as Haiti.

Trump thinks that being strong means you kick your allies and bully every country and everybody.

America Alone is exactly how Putin & Xi Jinping want the USA.

What did Robin Williams say about Canada? It's a nice apartment, above a meth lab. Same holds true for western Europe.

12. Insofar as this tweet reflects the "thinking" of his base...

... it encapsulates why the zero-sum nature of such "thinking" is so dangerous. America First (or, more broadly, "We're Number One" means that any concession to another group is seen as a "loss" to "Us," and thus disloyal at best and rank persecution at worst. This can be seen in the reactions to acknowledging the rights of others, which are deemed persecution of ME. (It doesn't help that current sloppy thinking likes to see rights as granted favors, rather than fundamental characteristics). When one can also see his expectations thwarted and his own property and prospects diminishing, often through no fault of his own, it creates the perfect opportunity for scapegoating the "other," however conceived.

about AMERICA FIRST!, he'd pack up an' leave for some Caucasian bastion or shithole retreat - whichever would have his sorry ass. America will just keep dropping further and further back in the pack so long as we employ a shithead president to represent us on this whirling rock.

That's our president! -> <- There's our president!

22. There are a lot of "shitholes" in this country, too.

ALL red areas are, by definition, shitholes. Low taxes, low services, bad schools, bad roads, etc. Full of deplorables (which is enough by itself to make an area a shithole).

BUT those countries he called shitholes are that way because WE made them that way: American colonialism and imperialism (especially Haiti, South and Central America) and European in the case of African nations.

Our relations, particularly with Haiti are noxious, up to and including Bill Clinton and Bush.

34. To lose touch with reality means having had contact with it previously

I am not certain he has ever really had touch with it. I think he has lived all or a large part of his life in a bubble, separated from what most would consider reality.
