    Republican congressmen Tom Cotton and Perdue want Africa to know that Donald Trump thinks they're shithouses, not shitholes.

    Either one works the descriptions might be rude, crude and politically incorrect you might even find them insulting but that doesn't mean they aren't accurate.

    If they were shithouses, then they cannot claim it was racist. People are not shithouses, are they?

    I guess these are yet another in the apparently unending series of White House officials that no one can identify.

    Meh.

    And therein lies the problem.

    It was a true statement and, quite frankly, people have become to sensitive to face reality these days.

    Did one of Trump's shithouse lawyers come up with that spin?

    And Anderson Cooper wants you to believe he grew up in a mixed neighborhood.

    Who cares if the statement was accurate or not? An army vet with no legs is short but I’m not gonna run around making fun of his height. It shouldn’t have been said by our president. That’s plain and simple
