  1. Colbert just nailed it (just as I am reading this):”Sir, they’re not all shit hole countries. They don’t have you as president.”

  2. This comes from a column written by David Leonhardt, columnist for the NYT. It very adequately describes our Great Leader as a racist. Our SH**hole President speaks out!
    …………………
    …No one except Trump can know what Trump’s private thoughts or motivations are. But the public record and his behavior are now abundantly clear. Donald Trump treats black people and Latinos differently than he treats white people.
    And that makes him a racist…
    But the definition of a racist — the textbook definition, as Paul Ryan might say — is someone who treats some people better than others because of their race. Trump fits that definition many times over:
    • Trump’s real-estate company was sued twice by the federal government in the 1970s for discouraging the renting of apartments to African-Americans and preferring white tenants, such as “Jews and executives.”
    • In 1989, Trump took out ads in New York newspapers urging the death penalty for five black and Latino teenagers accused of raping a white woman in Central Park; he continued to argue that they were guilty as late as October 2016, more than 10 years after DNA evidence had exonerated them.
    • He spent years claiming that the nation’s first black president was born not in the United States but in Africa, an outright lie that Trump still has not acknowledged as such.
    • He began his 2016 presidential campaign by disparaging Mexican immigrants as criminals and “rapists.”
    • He has retweeted white nationalists without apology.
    • He frequently criticizes prominent African-Americans for being unpatriotic, ungrateful and disrespectful.
    • He called some of those who marched alongside white supremacists in Charlottesville last August “very fine people.”
    • He is quick to highlight crimes committed by dark-skinned people, sometimes exaggerating or lying about it (such as a claim about growing crime from “radical Islamic terror” in Britain). He is very slow to decry hate crimes committed against dark-skinned people (such as the murder of an Indian man in Kansas last year).
    • At the White House yesterday, Trump vulgarly called for less immigration from Haiti and Africa and more from Norway.
