Durbin Contests Trump’s Denial of “Shithole” Comment As Press Search For Other Members [UPDATED]

13/01/2018

Turley looks at Trump’s shithole countries remark and makes some useful observations.

However, then the racists and Trump trolls piled in with comments on the thread.

It would seem that there’s a very evil spirit abroad in America right now. Given licence by the nasty bully residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

donald_trump_president-elect_portrait_croppedPresident Donald Trump is denying that he referred to Haiti and African countries as “shithole countries” in a meeting with members of Congress.  Clearly someone is lying and it should not be hard to determine who.  One of the members in the meeting, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), says that Trump is lying and that he clearly made the statement.  The question now is recollection of some of the other people in the room, including Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).

Update: Sen. Graham has now issued a statement that appears to confirm that the President said this and says that he
directly challenged the President after his comment.  Another member has said that Graham told him that President did say it.
