Fox News host Tucker Carlson defended President Donald Trump’s Thursday comments about immigrants coming to America from “shithole” countries, and said the media’s visceral outrage over the story was preposterous.
Trump denies saying it to begin with and given the WAPO used an “unnamed source” it’s likely another instance of the media lying.

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.
