English is an imprecise and inadequate language, I've always said that
But I sort of agree that those countries are shitholes.
Am... I... am I racist too?
Oh man. :(
Of course those countries are shitholes, but thats not the point nor the people who want to immigrate to the US' fault.
The point is when in the context of a conversation about people from those countries immigrating to the US, the President of the United States implies that those people are in fact shitholes themselves and why would we let them in. When in fact the only reason he thinks that is because they are brown and he is racist.
Fifty years ago Trump would be saying "Why should we let people from shithole ghettos use the same drinking fountain as me?". Who am I kidding, he probably says that now.
You just know he wraps his mouth around his private gold water fountain
Why does the Croatian language have a word for that exact thing?
Croatian wolves are very randy
The best deals.
Serious question - which major African cities have you been to and how would you compare them to our US cities?
Could you compare Pretoria to Atlanta for us?
Which outdoor market is better, the Reading Terminal Market in Philly or the Djmaa el Fna in Marrakech?
Would you rather go camping in Kruger National Park or Big Bend National Park?
I keep saying, Bossip is amazing
“hateful dollop of dumpster mayo”
I'm more concerned that we don't
I have to think the moving of the moral goalposts by the Christian right on this one will even make rules blush.
Can I get a translation?
trump does have good taste in porn stars I'll give him that.
Black dudes want to fuck Tami because she was on video rapping to 21 Savages. Bossip takes a while to get used to.
I was hoping 21 Savage had smashed ... but good on him either way
did this dude's lawyer just call him a nazi?
This is a good example of when they go low, we go high. What we need right now is when they go low, we make them bite the curb then we stomp on their head.
Slick Willy has the old man shakes and has lost his mojo, but back in the day there was nobody better. Obama couldn’t hold a candle to Bill at his peak.
I can’t blame trump for this
“You think I have to pay for it?”
Yeah. Yeah I do.
Trump is untouchable wrt anything related to the Sex. Lifetime immunity after voters, including majority of white women, heard grab em by the pussy and said hey, no big deal.
Are the Darwin Awards still a thing?
Oops. Wrong thread. Fuck Trump
I don't know anything about any of those places. I still think most African nations are probably pretty shitty places to live. I have no problem with people coming here from those places looking for a better life. On the list of grievances against Donald, the use of the phrase "shithole" doesn't register to me at all though.
It's a window into his brain. Africa = shithole. Norway = desirable source of immigrants to America.
So you think it's perfectly OK to label countries that are majority non-Caucasian "shitholes" because you have a predisposed belief that they're "shitholes" even though you've never been to any of them? Not a great look.
It's because they are poor and war torn that I assume they are shitholes. I feel bad for the people trying to survive there.
I feel like a lot of eastern European countries are shitholes too and they are full of caucasians
It's ok to acknowledge that a country is not such a great place to live. I think it's dishonest to be outraged that he described them as such but I fully support being outraged that it's being used as a discriminating factor for immigration.
It was all evident before Election Day. In aggregate we were too lazy and apathetic as a country to think hard about the consequences of letting him in the White House.
Somebody tweeted it right after the election, “the damage will be incalculable,” and it’s true.
I still think GW Bush was dumber than Trump, by a mile. Trump is illiterate and see everything like a child (it’s always about him) and sounds like an idiot when he talks, but W was literally as dumb as a box of rocks. Trump is savvy and a manipulator and always scheming, Bush was literally an empty and vacant vessel, nothing goin on in his head.
That's exactly what he said and why people are outraged. These individuals' circumstances, happening to be born in "shithole" countries, is a reason to deny or give them access to immigration to America ...
You have some of the dumbest opinions I’ve ever read
Since you’re not able to think beyond the top layer, to peel that onion back, here’s some help: saying any human being is smarter than GW Bush is neither a compliment nor an impressive feat. He was quite possibly the dumbest person to ever serve in the Oval Office, and definitely in the bottom quintile of all living human beings. I’m not suggesting Trump is even intelligent. He’s simply less dumb than W.
They rolled out W during the 2000 cycle and that man couldn’t talk fluently about anything, made no sense at all. Terrible press conferences and idiotic policy speeches as potus. He was just a semi conscious conduit through which Karl Rove and Dick Cheney drove horribly destructive neo con policy and implementation upon society and far away lands.
Ouch. The last two republican presidents have been functioning idiots controlled like puppets because they didn’t actually understand policy and its implications.
Last two dems? A Rhodes Scholar and a constitutional law professor.
George W Bush was a bi-lingual, a Ivy League Grad and a former fighter pilot ... he was not dumb.
