    No he didn't. You're a liar. You know you're lying. That makes you deplorable and pathetic. Liar.

    I can't even visualize Obama saying anything close to that. He is a normal, educated, articulate person who has no need to go there. Trump on the other hand thinks shithole is advanced analysis.

    It's really not that abnormal to use language like shit hole to describe places. It's fairly normal in American culture.

    Obama was certainly more polished and careful with his language. I'll give you that. Whether that's a virtue or not though is debatable. I prefer elected officials who speak like the rest of us do.

    But it sure is abnormal to use that term in a policy meeting about immigration and the day before you are to give a speech at a rite to honor Martin Luther King.

    It shows an elitist, callous, cruel, and reckless person who has no business even having a hand in such policy decisions, let alone a President of a country founded on inclusiveness, welcoming open arms and colorblind justice.

    The man is the antithesis of every ideal America has held for 230 plus years. It's stuff like this that tears at the fabric of our being and diminishes our moral authority that many have fought and died to establish and to maintain. You on the right just refuse to recognize the damage he is doing. To those who are the target of his hatred, it isn't amusing or quaint or folksy.

    I doubt it.

    I imagine politicians use language like this all the time behind closed doors in policy meetings. I believe Obama's chief of staff for example had quite the reputation for using foul language in meetings.

    As far as your rant about Trump - we'll just agree to disagree. Because I certainly don't think calling shit hole countries shit holes tears at the fabric of our being. That just sounds absurd to me. In fact - it sounds more like free expression to me - which is the fabric of our being and actually what many have fought and died to establish and maintain.

    Also - I'm not on the right. So I would ask that you stop characterizing me that way, because it isn't accurate.
