    Ghana web ^ | 1.14.2018
    Controversial television host, Valentina Agyeiwaa, aka Afia Schwarzenegger has thrown her weight behind President of the United States, Donald Trump for describing Africa as a ‘Shithole’. According to her, President Donald Trump is right since many Africans especially Ghanaians are not happy in their own country but queue in the sun just to secure American visas. In a video released on her Instagram page, the outspoken TV host insisted that even the President of Ghana agrees that Africans are in a ‘shithole’. Afia in the video maintained that President Trump was even lenient in his words by tagging Africa as...

    In an interview with USA Today, the former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said President Donald Trump’s alleged “shithole countries” comments were “racist.” Bush said, “When you call Haiti, whether it’s an ’s-house’ or an ’s-hole,’ I mean it really doesn’t matter, you disparage a lot of people that love this country that are here making a contribution and making a difference. Why? Why do you do that?”
  • Katie Hopkins: 'The Sh*thole Countries Are Here in Western Europe'

    After President Trump allegedly declared certain countries (especially in, but not limited to Africa) "sh*thole countries," "many of us felt a sense of relief," British commentator Katie Hopkins writes at The Rebel. Like many supporters of the president, she believes that, unlike most politicians, Trump is telling it like it is. "Straight talk -- like a blast of fresh air on a clammy bus." Although she could've focused on that and explained why many of the countries mentioned by Trump are indeed not exactly heaven on earth, she had a different perspective. Instead, she asked her Twitter followers who live...

    Wash Post ^ | 1/18/18
    When President Trump spoke by phone with Sen. Richard J. Durbin around 10:15 a.m. last Thursday, he expressed pleasure with Durbin’s outline of a bipartisan immigration pact and praised the high-ranking Illinois Democrat’s efforts, according to White House officials and congressional aides. The president then asked if Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), his onetime foe turned ally, was on board, which Durbin affirmed. Trump invited the lawmakers to visit with him at noon, the people familiar with the call said. But when they arrived at the Oval Office, the two senators were surprised to find that Trump was far from...

    WASHINGTON -- Last week the headlines should have abounded with the year's good news. It was the economy: gross domestic product was up some 3 percent and, for the last quarter, nearly 4 percent; unemployment was down to a 17-year low, with black unemployment at the lowest level since such statistics were compiled. The stock market was soaring, up some 40 percent since Donald Trump was elected, and inflation was low. It was the best Christmas season in years. President Trump has -- true to his word -- presided over a genuine economic recovery, as opposed to President Barack...

    “Sir, respectfully, I have answered this question repeatedly,” Nielsen finally told Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who was at least the third lawmaker to raise the issue.“I have nothing further to say about it.” She acknowledged several times that the meeting, aimed at reaching a bipartisan immigration deal, was “very impassioned” and said several of the lawmakers including Trump used “tough language.” However, she said she did not hear Trump use the racially-tinged word or words attributed to him.

    Democratic Sen. Cory Booker seethed with anger over Trump’s alleged “shithole countries” comment during a hearing with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. During a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Nielsen faced numerous questions about Trump’s alleged insistence that countries like Haiti and African countries are “shithole countries.” “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting.” “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying, ‘I’ve already answered that line of...

The map charts all of the locations for human excrement “incidents” reported to the San Francisco police during a given month.

    12,513 Afghans became permanent residents in ’16. Their country is in the middle of an endless civil war between the Islamic terrorists who hate us and the Islamic terrorists who really, really hate us. Only 31% of the population of Afghanistan can read. Around 1,000 of the Afghans we took in have jobs. 8,190 don’t have jobs. 3,158 are marked as unknown. That’s an 8% employment rate. The left has been shrieking that wrapping up Temporary Protected Status for aliens from El Salvador will wreak havoc on our businesses and economy. In ’16, we took in 23,449 Salvadorans. Around 3,000...

    As President Trump nears his  first anniversary in office, he  faces an unforgiving political  landscape. Every word he says and every action he takes will either help him keep a Republican Congress or hand control to Democrats. And if Dems get the gavel, impeachment could be the result. This is the binary world Trump inhabits, and seen through that lens, the uproar over the president’s disparaging remarks about Haiti and other poor countries helps Dems in their goal of hobbling if not ending his presidency. Despite his denial that he used the words “shithole countries,” most of the media instantly...

    Conan O’Brien was one of many Americans who were unhappy to read the reports that President Donald Trump called some foreign nations, including Haiti, “s—hole” countries — an insult that has been met with outrage and charges of racism. (Trump and Republican officials have disputed the exact comment, and today, Trump declared, “I am not a racist.”) But the host of Conan is not just doing a monologue about it, he’s hopping on a plane and letting cameras roll for an hourlong special. O’Brien will take his TBS late-night talk show on the road again, this time to Haiti, to...

    Sounds like Jennifer Rubin has adopted President Trump’s view of Haiti! Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, Rubin relied on Haiti’s s-hole status to justify not returning to Haiti those Haitians in the US under Temporary Protected Status. Said Rubin: “Haiti, which he just called a ‘shithole,’ is not a place that these people can return to, particularly after devastation and some very poor policies on behalf of the United States and others.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Republican Rep. Mia Love deplored President Donald Trump for reportedly criticizing immigrants coming to the United States from what he called "shithole countries." "I can't defend the indefensible. You have to understand that there are countries that struggle out there. But their people, their people are good people and they're part of us. We're Americans," Love, who represents Utah and is the first Haitian-American elected to Congress, said on CNN's "State of the Union." Referring to immigrants from African countries, Trump asked lawmakers during an Oval Office meeting on immigration reform, "Why do we want all these people from 'shithole...

    US President Donald Trump has denied using crude words attributed to him about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. Reports that he had called them “s---hole countries” in an Oval Office meeting generated a backlash worldwide. One UN official called the remarks racist and said they opened “the door to humanity’s worst side”. But Mr. Trump has tweeted that “this was not the language” he used in a meeting about immigration. He wrote that the language he used was “tough, but this was not the language used”. The Washington Post, the New York Times, Politico and the Wall Street Journal...

    WASHINGTON — Last summer, President Donald Trump publicly pinned much of the blame for his administration’s woes on its communications efforts. The White House and his broader administration could do better at communicating his agenda in one unified voice, he conceded in a Fox News interview, giving himself a “C or a C plus” on messaging. But Trump’s leaked remarks during an immigration meeting Thursday calling Africa a bunch of “shithole countries,” coupled with his contradictory tweets that same day about a House bill authorizing foreign surveillance on U.S. soil, underscored his administration’s continued struggle with public messaging nearly one...

    Given the ongoing furor over President Trump's executive order commanding the State Department cartographer to mark the map of the world with "Here be sh***holes", I thought for our Saturday movie date we should have a film about just how bad it can get. Twenty-four years ago, the Rwandan genocide was just about to get under way: In a hundred days, a million people were murdered - with machetes, all very low-tech. Since then, as I noted only the other day, the machete has been introduced to such boring white-bread places as Shelburne, Vermont, and Dundalk, Ireland, and Gothenburg, Sweden,...
