❝ Donald Trump described El Salvador, Haiti and certain African nations, as “shithole” countries during a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday…
❝ “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from those countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, the Washington Post reported, citing aides briefed on the meeting.
❝ The president demanded to know why the US would accept immigrants from these countries rather than places like Norway, whose prime minister he had met with the day before.
Yes, fools and bigots who rush to our Fake President’s defense are as racist as he. Denial is as meaningless as their false professions of loyalty to our Constitution. The chumps who elected this thug can share out the guilt – hoping to diminish and dilute the shame which illustrates that contemptible ailment so profoundly American.
There is a singular standard for judging political candidates for government in 2018 and 2020. Before any other issue, before we may evaluate economics and platforms, those who would contest for elected office must answer the cardinal question of American history: Will you support equal opportunity and equal rights for all citizens of this nation? Will you fight for those rights?
We know Trump’s answer. Over the next few days we’ll see and hear which side politicians and public figures choose to support.
