Tucker Carlson can’t believe anyone is bent out of shape over Trump saying the word ‘sh*thole’… but Trump denies saying it

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.

Update – Jake Tapper reveals some ‘clarifying remarks’ on what president actually said after ‘Sh*tholegate’

There you have it. After an initial wave of reports showing the problem with off-the-record remarks being leaked to the press, it appears that the president’s “sh*thole countries” comment referred specifically to impoverished African countries with notoriously corrupt regimes.

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

    So the media is stuck. They either identify the source (unlikely) or have to listen to Trump calling them fucking liars. LMAO

  • When the first report comes out on WaPo, you know it’s fake news.

    But the left is losing their minds again so it’s all good.

      Best President Ever.

      • The heartland voted for him because he tells it like it is.

        The libs didn’t vote for him because he tells it like it is.

        And he is the best President ever.

    • I’m luvin it.

    It will be a good day when a political shithead from a shithole country actually simply answers a question without all the political gobblygook.

    Trump’s truth hurts.

    Since when is the word “shit” so horrifyingly vulgar according to the Cdn. press and other stories? It may be crude but it isn’t the most nasty cuss word and so what if Trump was blunt with his fellow politicians in a private meeting. Glad this is backfiring on the idiots in the MSM.

    • It shows how out of touch they are.

    • Clink9

      Fuddle Duddle.

    • I think the UN nailed it by calling it racism, presumably because shit tends to be brown.

      It is just standard Lefty victim inversion – if someone calls a country a shithole because it is one, the blame lies with he who calls it rather than he who caused it. If you describe a nice country as a shithole everyone will just laugh; if they don’t laugh it proves the truth of it.

      Comments are largely pro Trump… if he said it, good, if he didn’t, he should have.

      I think if the U.N. had their way it would be a shithole planet.

      • WalterBannon

        the U.N. is a shithole

    • I love it, the UN is a shithole! And the Independent is a lefty rag owned by a Muslim, it’s more Trump deranged than the Times or CNN.

  • Maggat

    That is what I like about Trump, he calls a spade a spade, or what ever. Good on him!

    Justin is outraged since he knows Canada is one of these designated countries and more so when he knows that Canada wasn’t one under Harper, and if Justin resigns Canada may drop this designation too.
