    Why doesn't the left get upset at the way the Clintons wasted billions in donations meant for the victims in Haiti? Few were helped. Most of the money went to big Clinton donors. Fancy hotels and other businesses were built in northern Haiti, the area not affected by the earthquake, and those businesses helped big corporations like Walmart. Most contractors were Clinton Foundation donors. Billions disappeared and yet southern Haiti still looks like a shithole.

    So, liberals don't care that Clintons screwed the people of Haiti by failing to deliver on any promises and squandered the money to help their own interests, but Trump saying the truth about some countries pisses them off. One Haitian official that was set to testify about the wasted money and lack of help was found with a bullet in his head days before he was set to testify here in the U.S. Damn, that happens a lot to people who can hurt the Clintons.

    The proposition that Trump's remark - even if said - was racist is total nonsense. Everybody knows which are the shit-hole countries, and everybody knows which countries are likely to send the kinds of immigrants that Trump wants to see. Further, some of the "good" countries are not "white" - India, Korea, Japan, etc.

    The fact that essentially all of the shit hole countries are non-"white" is not the contrivance or work of The Donald. It is what it is.

    And it's NOT racist. Facts are not racist.

    Does it matter that Trump never actually called those places "sh*thole countries"? And that the report he had, was just a lie by Dick Durbin (D-IL)?

    GOP senator: 'Gross misrepresentation' of Trump's remarks

    Georgia Republican Sen. David Perdue said Sunday that President Donald Trump did not use the phrase "****hole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week. "I'm telling you he did not use that word, George, and I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation," Perdue told moderator George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week."

    Perdue on Sunday accused Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of spreading false information about what Trump said at the meeting and added that Trump has been misrepresented.

    Sen. Tim Scott told The Post and Courier that fellow South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who was at the meeting, told him the reported comments are "basically accurate."

    Perdue and Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton said in a Friday statement that they did not recall the "****hole" comment, and like Perdue, Cotton on Sunday accused Durbin of misrepresenting Trump's comments. "I didn't hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was," Cotton said on CBS's "Face the Nation."

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on "Fox News Sunday" that she did not recall Trump saying "that exact phrase."

    Shithole countries are always of "color" (non-color such as brown and black). This is a conspiracy!

    kinda gonna depend on how the latest round of investigations go i suppose.

    overall yes i'll agree it's stupid to push impeach based on emotions, not facts but that's what we're down to at this point. what's even worse, is we're stuck in some 3rd grade mindset of "payback" and when does that end cause neither side feels they deserve "payback". as long as we feel we have to "payback" people this bullshit will never end. *WE* need to grow the fuck up and get over the bullshit of the past or we'll carry it around and continue to dig deeper into the shit we're already in.
