  1. Quite accurate, but ewww.
    These days, unfortunately, we have to live with ewww.
    Who else in Fred’s readerland finds it interesting to watch Dick Durbin’s face
    (poker) during these meetings (which have garnered “great reviews” from the press)?

  2. Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, said on Friday that the president did use the term “shithole,” repeatedly, during the course of the meeting on immigration — which Mr. Durbin attended. The senator described Mr. Trump as saying “things which were hate-filled, vile and racist.”

    Yep, that’s our Great Leader. Your drawing accurately describes him.

    1. I heard that too, Carol (in fact, on the news, as I type). I am just curious as to how Durbin, et.al., are able to sit through his ramblings w/o eye-rolling, other body language, laughing (or crying). I’d also like to see the other faces in the room.
      I happen to be reading Fire & Fury. You’ll read about numerous responses to his speeches & comments.

  3. We look forward to the evening national news every night with the tRump circus show. I just can’t believe half this country is filled with deplorable morons. He is playing to his base nightly. We are a quarter of the way done with this. Hopefully sooner.

  4. Borowitz is a comedian. This is a JOKE!!

    Trump Demands Poem on Statue of Liberty be revised to exclude Shithole Countries
    By Andy BorowitzJanuary 11, 2018
    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump demanded on Thursday that the poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty be revised immediately to exclude nations he considered “shithole countries.”

    Speaking to reporters, Trump said that the poem as it currently stands “is basically an open invitation that says, like, if you come from a shithole country, welcome aboard.”

    “I don’t know the entire poem, but it’s something like ‘Give us your tired, your poor, your yadda yadda yadda,’ ” he said. “We could keep all that but then put in, right at the end, in big letters, maybe, ‘except if you’re from a shithole country.’ ”

    “I think if a boat from a shithole country came and saw that poem with those words at the end, they would turn around and go right back to wherever they came from,” he said.

    Shortly after Trump made his remarks about “shithole” countries, representatives of the countries he designated as such released a joint response.

    “We do not understand President Trump’s aversion to so-called ‘shithole countries,’ since he is doing his best to turn the United States into one,” the statement read.

  5. What a great leader!!

    The shockwaves from the “shithole” comments continue to be felt far beyond DC. The UN’s office on human rights issued a statement condemning the comments; Haiti has summoned the US ambassador in Port-au-Prince, who early called the comments “regrettable,” to explain; and Botswana has asked the United States to clarify if it is a “shithole country.”
