Dick Durbin is now backtracking, suggesting that “shithole” may not have been the exact word that President Trump used.
In a ‘no matter what he said, it was bad’ press conference, Durbin tripled down on the spirit of his allegation, if not the letter.
Someone suggested that perhaps the President referred to Haiti as a “shithouse” country. Durbin doesn’t quite know. But he does know that whatever President Trump said, it was bad because President Trump said it, and all lying liberal weenies know that everything President Trump says in bad because racism!
Pivoting back and forth, left, then right, like a radar dish searching for the enemy, Durbin declared, “I don’t know that changing the word from ‘hole’ to ‘house’ changes the impact. I don’t think a majority of Americans agree with the president whichever word that he used. I don’t believe that a majority of the Republican Party agrees with the president.”
So, maybe President Trump said “shithole” countries. Maybe he said “shithouse” countries. Maybe he said “economically disadvantaged” countries. He might have even said “tropical” countries. Who knows, he might even have said “beautiful” countries (gasp!).
Whatever the President said, Dick Durbin is certain it was bad.

“I don’t think a majority of Americans agree with the president whichever word that he used,” Durbin said.
I disagree with that, Dick. Haiti is a shithole. Americans agree with that whether President Trump said it or not. Heck, Haitians agree with that or they wouldn’t be piling a dozen people on a car hood every ten minutes to row to Miami.
It is YOU who is out of touch, Senator, not President Trump or the American people.
Does it make the words, whether Trump said them or not, any less true? Haiti is a shithole. If you don't know that, then move there…. forever. Let us know how it works out. https://t.co/ylutMpjcnf
