Trump Denies 'Shithole Countries' Comment But The World Has The Real Receipts

By: Kayla Pasacreta

After word of Donald Trump's 'shithole' country comment in regards to Haiti, Trump's White House is dealing with a PR nightmare.  Commentators and hosts alike on CNN took to calling Trump a racist, "Trump Is A Racist" made it to a top trending topic on Twitter, and Americans everywhere are disgraced. Trump took to his Twitter account this morning to clear his name and insist he never used that language about Haitians:

Unfortunately for the Donald, multiple people were present during that meeting, and Senator Dick Durbin is saying #issalie. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), was present during the immigration roundtable and is saying POTUS did in fact make those comments. Durbin stated Friday morning, "It's not true. He said those hateful things, and he said them repeatedly." Somebody is lying, and we're 100% sure that person is Trump. A larger portion of Durbin's statement to reporters on Trump's denial is below:

When the question was raised about Haitians, for example, we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval. The largest group is El Salvadoran. The second is Honduran and the third is Haitian, and when I mentioned that fact to him, he said ‘Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?’ And then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure. That’s where he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from “sh*tholes” — the exact word used by the president not just once, but repeatedly.

As always Fox News America lives in an entirely different world and conservative pundits are unrelenting in their loyalty to Trump. Snowflake Tabitha Lahren (snicker), tweeted, "All these leftist pearl clutchers are so upset President Trump referred to some “shithole” countries while they’ve spent the last 2 years+ telling us the USA is a shithole country not worth standing for. Please. Get over yourselves."

Brace yourselves; below are a few tweets on the matter from complicit Twitter.

Trump's comments are being met with international outrage. Rupert Coleville, a spokesman for the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNCHR), responded to the comments by saying, "These are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States...Sorry, there is no other word one can use but racist.”

Last night, CNN host Don Lemon opened his show saying, "This is CNN Tonight, I’m Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist. A lot of us already knew that.”

Safe to say pretty much everyone realizes dude is racist.
