    Indeed, there seems to be a fair amount of folks in the the GOP defending and decrying the comments of the president, comments which appear to me to be nothing more than coded racism.

    Bravo to Mia for not kowtowing to the president's racism because of party.

    GOP Rep. Mia Love Slams Trump's 'Shithole Countries' Comment | Time

    Republican Rep. Mia Love condemned President Donald Trump on Thursday over his reported comments referring to immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and some African nations as coming from “shithole countries.”



    The Utah representative, whose family is from Haiti, called on the president to apologize and said his remarks were “unkind” and “divisive.”


    “The President’ comments are unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values. This behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation. My parents came from one of those countries but proudly took an oath of allegiance to the United States and took on the responsibilities of everything that being a citizen comes with,” Love said in a statement on Thursday.
    Anybody who thinks the orange sphincter will apologize is only fooling themselves. He had no history of apologizing for anything as far as I know. And even if he did it's the way he feels so it would ring hollow.

    I don’t think it’s an insult to people living there. It’d be more insulting to pretend the place was lovely. Haiti is a hellish place.

    That’s just stating facts.

    But here’s the thing. He’s the leader of the country so he has a duty to apologize, and make it good.

    But he won’t. Bet you anything. Because he’s a piece of shit who would never apologize to anyone for anything. Ever.

    That’s also just stating facts.

    We have shitholes in this country. I call my own state of Indiana (home of Pence) a shithole all the time. I will be moving when I can.

    Irish immigrants had nothing to offer this country when they came except disease same goes for the Italians. People hated the Germans for their mythical belief they could keep Wilson from entering WWI.

    THESE WERE THE THOUGHTS AT THE TIME.

    TRUMP? ISN'T SPEAKING TRUTH HE IS SPEAKING HIS PERSONAL BELIEF AND YOU AGREE SO YOU MUST BE JUST LIKE TRUMP

    TRUMP IS A RACIST. PERIOD END OF STORY, THERE'S TOO MANY GODDAMN EXAMPLES OF IT NOW FOR EVEN YOU TO IGNORE.

    Are you kidding? Have you been living under a rock? When has he apologized for anything? He's a sociopath.

    So you're one of those that thinks the bad part of being bad is getting caught. I get it.

    Snitches get stitches. Sounds like a gang member mentality.

    That is moronic. No country is a shithole. A shithole is shithole.

    You people need to learn words have meaning and using words incorrectly does not make their usage correct.

    Got it? Do you understand now?

    It's time for him to go.

    2017 was a disastrous year. 2018 is starting off even worse. Enough is enough already. Republicans have to put country first.
