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.
