    Obama isn't dumb enough to call another country a shit hole on the record like Trump did.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that what has been said in meetings is very different than what is given to the public. With that said i would guess that there is an understanding that this sort of shit never sees the light of day. I'm also going to guess there has been some vile shit said by politicians over the years in meetings

    But hey, this is all speculation on my part.

    My only frame of reference here is that as far as I know nothing like this drops when someone is still on office.

    Graham: I said my piece to Trump directly

    [​IMG]

    Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that he said his piece directly to President Trump at a White House meeting on immigration reform the previous day where Trump reportedly disparaged several nations as "shithole countries."

    Graham was present at the bipartisan meeting in the Oval Office where Trump reportedly referred to Haiti, El Salvador and several African nations as "shithole countries" after lawmakers suggested that immigrants from the countries be provided protections.

    "Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel. I've always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals," Graham said in a statement on Friday.

    Graham neither confirmed nor denied the controversial remarks attributed to Trump, but the GOP senator said he appreciated statements from Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.).

    Durbin, the only Democrat at the meeting Thursday, said he heard Trump make the crude remarks and praised Graham for speaking up and rebuking the president at the time.

    "My colleague [Graham] spoke up and made a direct comment on what the president said," Durbin said Friday, according to MSNBC. "For him to confront the president as he did, literally sitting next to him, took extraordinary political courage and I respect him for it."

    "I appreciate Senator Durbin's statements and have enjoyed working with him and many others on this important issue," Graham said in his statement.

    "Diversity has always been our strength, not our weakness. In reforming immigration we cannot lose these American ideals."

    Im going to say that maybe other presidents have been a bit more............tactful...........

    I suspect that if Obama ever said anything like that in a meeting,it would have been mentioned just like this was.............

    the dems AND the republicans present are now both on record as calling him out on it.........which,I suspect,means he went a bit farther than what they are used to or expected

    Trump has zero tact. I'm not defending him

    You on the other hand are coming off like a triggered sjw. No offense dude but you are.

    Point is, this never should have seen the light of day. Trump is a no class racing asshole, but what a man says in a meeting should never be given to the press

    That is precisely why Graham is a blathering, dangerous fucknuckle that nobody should be listening to. Maybe someday reality will walk up to him, mug him and leave him for dead. I won't bet on it though. We both know Graham won't be hosting any newcomers in his home at great risk to his family.

    Senators Cotton and Perdue say they don't recall DJT saying Shithole. Graham claims he spoke his piece about the alleged Shithole remark but hasn't said that DJT said that. That leaves Durbin. A known liar. Go figure.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess he probably said it.

    It's possible. I wouldn't be surprised, or offended if he had. Of course, the more sensitive types are nearly apoplectic. IMO there are more pressing issues at hand.

    Fucking right there is.

    Don't expect the new left to get it though. You need to actually be employable and have an interest in working for a living to get it.

    He probably said it, but it's not racist, and it's true; they are shithole countries.

    Whether or not Trump is a disrespectful moron is a completely different discussion altogether.

    One thing I think we can all agree on, is that the media is constantly pumping out hyperbolic trash 24/7, from all sides.
