Media Responses to Alleged Trump “Sh*thole” Comments are Why Everyone Hates the Media

Media Responses to Alleged Trump “Sh*thole” Comments are Why Everyone Hates the Media

Because it must be said again, this, dear media, is why everyone hates you.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwSALVcUTkE

During immigration legislation negotiations, Trump singled out Haiti, El Salvador, and a handful of African countries, describing them as “shitholes,” or so claimed the Washington Post.

Their bombshell intel came from people who were not in the meeting but later briefed on the contents of said meeting, making their source on par with a game of telephone.

The remarks as reported didn’t pass the smell test, but that didn’t stop the press from losing their minds and going into full-blown outrage mode.

CNN couldn’t get enough and almost seemed to enjoy the opportnity to say “shit” on air:

Politicians denounced Trump, Anderson Cooper cried, and no one thought to ask whether or not Trump actually said was the WaPo accused him of saying. Because in the age of confirmation bias as a substitution for facts, why bother?

Meanwhile, the rest of us are sitting at home wondering why any of this is so difficult to comprehend.

Trump denied making any such comments in the context it was presented.

Then his denials were panned as a sad attempt to brush off what we KNOW he said.

Thank God there remain a few people equipped with large megaphones who still care about the truth, even if it’s not favorable to a narrative.

As I’ve said a gazillion times (or so it feels), the endless virtue signaling and hair on fire lunacy of our political press corps has destroyed their credibility.

They’re so hellbent on proving what they believe to be true rather than reporting facts, that we spend most of our time correcting the record. And still, they haven’t learned.

Because it must be said again, this, dear media, is why everyone hates you.

“I lied, got caught, lied again, got caught again” J Tapper

    Tapper used to be a credible reporter when he was at ABC. Now, he’s become a hack of the worst sort – and a paid one, too.

    Tapper sold out: literally. Very tragic for us, for him, for the Fourth Estate, and ultimately, for our country.

    Good riddance, Tapper.

      How long before Jake Tapper joins #hetoo

      I don’t think they keep their jobs for being good reporters. I think they keep their job when they reliably say what their pay masters want them to.

    Isn’t the real issue why so many believe he used those ugly words?
    Be honest…..it’s him in all his ugliness.

CBS this morning made the mistake of quoting the entire White House statement. No one except an unAmerican Democrat or the MSM could disagree with it. Merit based immigration, close the borders. No right to immigrate to America.

    02sbxstr in reply to puhiawa. | January 12, 2018 at 1:41 pm

    Why on earth would you give a thumbs down to the sentiment that merit based immigration is the only way to go? We all want people to come and CONTRIBUTE to the USA, we absolutely do not want them to come here, refuse to assimilate into our culture, not learn and use English, and suck on the public teat.

      Shane in reply to 02sbxstr. | January 12, 2018 at 2:31 pm

      I didn’t give the thumbs down.

      I agree with this:

      We all want people to come and CONTRIBUTE to the USA, we absolutely do not want them to come here, refuse to assimilate into our culture, not learn and use English, and suck on the public teat.

      But merit based immigration to me is that you have to have something that merit’s your immigration here i.e. something that America wants. I disagree with that sentiment. I understand that merit based might mean something else to you so I will leave it that.

        “Merit-based immigration” makes more sense if you differentiate “immigration” from “asylum”.

        If someone needs political asylum — if their home country has become hostile to their racial or ethic background or political or religious beliefs to the point they are unsafe at home — then we can still take them in and provide safety.

        This is a FAR cry from someone choosing to emigrate, say, for professional opportunities.

        We can grant long-term asylum (which carries a recognized legal status under current immigration law) without granting citizenship or permanent residency. But if you want full citizenship — up to and including voting rights — then you should have something of lasting value to bring with you.

        Separating asylum requests from immigration applications makes merit-based immigration much more reasonable.

        So naturally, expect liberals and the MSM (but I repeat myself) to consistently conflate them.

        C. Lashown in reply to Shane. | January 13, 2018 at 5:26 am

        Yeah, GOD FORBID, that Americans would want to put their own country first…isn’t that right Shane?

        America should be willing to open it’s borders to every goat-herder from the middle east in the ‘blind hope’ that his 3rd generation can advance into a dishwasher’s job in small town USA.

    Oops! Now the left is crying, ‘fake propaganda!’

    You’ve got two regular bozos here, and a couple of regular trolls.

    They’re always good for at least 4 thumbs’ down of anything anti-left. Count that into your commenting, and ignore their choices. We all do.

    Remember: you’re nobody, until somebody hates you.

I’m sorry, but I think the biggest issue here is “Who cares?” Yes, the usual TDS sufferers will have the usual aneurysms. And some may even choose to debate whether/what the President said. At the end of the day, though, most rational humans will agree that those places to which he may or may not have referred, Haiti included, are indeed sh*tholes, although many of us might not choose to use that language. Most normal people “get” Pres. Trump and they understand what he is saying. This continual insanity from the media is only advancing his cause, in my opinion.

    I’m not going to comment on what Trump said or didn’t say, but Haiti is, objectively, not a nice place to live. They still have not recovered from the earthquake; income per capita is less than 1/10 other Latin/Caribbean nations (50% of the population lives on less than $2 per day, 25% on less than $1.25); crime, disease, starvation, and infant mortality rates are much higher than most nations; three-quarters of kids won’t finish school (60% don’t progress past sixth grade); and their government is unable or unwilling to help the people.

    It’s not just about the earthquake, either. The Dominican Republic — which as a reminder is the other end of the same island — has a pretty normal standard of living across all criteria, however you want to measure it. We get far fewer people trying to emigrate from DR than from Haiti.

    The “s***hole” language may have been unnecessarily vulgar (whether or not it applied to Haiti), but the thrust of the comment — that the people emigrate to the U.S. to escape living conditions FAR worse than we will EVER see here — is spot on, and it’s not racist to point out how crappy conditions make people want to leave for somewhere better.

    tom_swift in reply to Anonamom. | January 13, 2018 at 12:17 am

    most rational humans will agree

    They’re not enough to win elections.

Oaky, lets agree with the Democrats’ contention that there are no s__t-holes in the world. Then there’s no need for any immigrant ever to leave and come to the USA.

Fake quote.

Fake outrage.

Fake news.

And let’s not forget the likes of fake patriot Sen. Dick ‘Turban’ Durbin. Remember, during a war, Durbin compared American soldiers to Nazis, Soviets and Pol Pot.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/2005/06/22/durbin-apologizes-for-nazi-gulag-pol-pot-remarks.html

The usual suspects committing the usual offenses.

Imagine if hillary klinton didn’t lose the election?

BEST. ELECTION. EVER.

    “Fake quote. Fake outrage. Fake news.”

    That’s basically what I was going to say.

    So the MSM gets a misquote from a biased and questionable source that casts Trump in a bad light, doesn’t bother to fact-check it (because it casts Trump in a bad light), gets apoplectic, and runs countless “news” stories about this “quote” that, if it happened at all, was taken out of context…

    … which they should have known, because they should have fact-checked and verified it…

    … but didn’t bother because the “quote” fit their chosen narrative.

    [sarcasm] But no, there’s no such thing as “fake news.” [/sarcasm]

    Uh-huh.

    Let’s all remember Dirty Harry lying on the senate floor about Mitt Romney’s taxes-
    and he was proud of it!
    “The outgoing Senate Minority Leader even bragged to CNN that the comments, which had been described as McCarthyism, helped keep Romney from winning the election.

    “They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win did he?” Reid said during a wide-ranging interview.”
    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/harry-reid-is-proud-he-lied-about-mitt-romneys-taxes/article/2562300

I remember when Joe Biden said during a Senate vote that “This is a big fuc*ing Deal” how all of the msm went after him for his vulgarity! Not!

From the Washington Times, “As President Trump met with senior congressional Republicans and Democrats on immigration Tuesday, his aides unexpectedly allowed journalists to record the lengthy discussion in the Cabinet room, with both sides airing their views and negotiating openly while cameras rolled. And rolled. And rolled.”

Did Trump call out the sh!tholes or not?

The MSM either needs broadcast the recording of his words, or stfu.

IMHO, everything the MSM publushes about Trump is a lie until proved otherwise.

Broadcast the recording!

https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jan/9/donald-trump-showcases-negotiating-skills-immigrat/

    The MSM either needs broadcast the recording of his words, or stfu.

    Kinda like how NBC broadcasted the recording of the 911 call George Zimmerman made before being jumped by Trayvon Martin?

    The MSM will never give up The Narrative[TM]. It controls and drives everything they do. It is an article of faith; it is infallible. Everything they see is viewed through the lens of The Narrative[TM], and when viewed through that lens makes perfect sense to them.

    Ergo, Trump is a racist bigot, because The Narrative[TM] says so and it is never wrong. If he says anything inflammatory or offensive, it’s because he’s racist. If he says anything logical or well-reasoned, it’s because he’s a racist who’s trying to appear non-racist, even if that logical and well-reasoned comment doesn’t mention race at all.

    The trouble is that The Narrative[TM] is a complete fabrication, and the rest of us can see through it without distortion.

    IMHO, everything the MSM publushes [sic] about Trump is a lie until proved otherwise.

    Good advice. 🙂

    Even if they retract their knowing lie, it’s not the point.

    The power they are seeking is merely in the lie being said.

    No less than their kindred spirit Adolph Hitler was a proponent of the ‘big lie’ theory:
    http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/hitler-on-the-big-lie

    When you think about it, the media really are group of modern day Tokyo Roses. We know what happened to her:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokyo_Rose

If Trump did not single out those countries to say that, then he missed a good opportunity to do so.

There’s a wonderful word that everyone needs to use regarding Durbin and the legacy media.

Pecksniff. It means raging hypocrite.

I’m also rather fond of the phrase “legacy media” instead of MSM.

Past their sell date.

1. Just because the Press wallows in it, that is no reason—not even a slight one—to believe it. This has been demonstrated time, after time, after time …

2. I don’t know if the President referred to any of the world’s shitholes as such … but I hope he did. And if he didn’t, I wish he would. It would be a monsoon-level blast of fresh air to have someone—anyond—in politics willing to call a spade a spade, and a third-world cesspool of failure and corruption a shithole.

3. I particularly like the way the very people who made what even they admit was not a public comment into headlines … and then tut-tut about its effect “on the children”.

Incidentally, and just for the record … in my own limited experience, Haitians are not the worst bunch we could have here. The normal U.S. immigration system seems fine to me, at least so far as Haiti is concerned.

CNN couldn’t get enough and almost seemed to enjoy the opportnity to say “shit” on air:

Remember the Lorena Bottitt case, and the evident delight of the newsreaders—especially some of the women—to find that no lightning bolts blasted them from above if they said “penis” on the air? Not surprisingly, they took the opportunity to overdo it.

Had the president used that word, it would be accurate. I’ve been to most of those places. It is the word used by everyone that goes to those places. It’s accurate. The streets are the sewers, dumps, etc.

The left routinely called Alabama a shithole in the recent election. Apparently they have no problem with the word either.

OleDirtyBarrister | January 12, 2018 at 2:39 pm

Trump should own his “shitholes” comment and double down on it by explaining the Marxists’ Clower-Piven strategy to “fundamentally transform America”, talking about population growth over the last 100 years, the number of citizens on transfer programs, the number of legal immigrants on the public dole and their striking propensity to take them under the current rules, pointing out that we don’t need more uneducated, unskilled workers to compete with citizens in the same situation, and that there is a much better alternative.

The much better alternative is a superstar immigration policy. The US could research and recruit around 10,000 stars around the world that are capable of supporting themselves and their families, and allow them to bring family. So you might have 10,000 primaries and up to 100,000 +/- secondaries, and none of the going on welfare, etc. He should challenge the public to imagine the benefits of an immigration system like that over the course of a decade, two decades, and three.

He should frequently repeat, “We need more strong horses pulling the wagon, not more people looking for a free ride on the wagon.” And remind the public that there is a choice between “Superstars” and “peasants,” and we do not need more uneducated peasants.

    I guess it hasn’t occurred to you (or Trump) that the people of Norway aren’t itching to come here. They have a great social welfare system and (shocking), the government own the oil!

    Try recruiting them. Go ahead.

      FAKE COMMENT ALERT! FAKE COMMENT ALERT!

      Dear Readers,

      Our troll makes a statement Norwegian (Mr. Troll: that means someone who is from Norway) prefers Norway over the US, because of conservatives living in America. But Mr. Troll conveniently forgets Norway is a country of five million people (mostly white Christians), with lots of cops, with a crime rate 36 times LESS than the US, and a murder rate 448 times LESS than the US.

      The five million people of Norway live in a land mass larger than California. Their largest cities contain 100,000.

      Norway has gun control, but its citizens can own guns.

      There are no obamas, no pelosis, no al sharptons, no sheila jackass lees, no hollywood idiots, and on and on and on.

      Their immigration laws are merit-based: you can’t come unless you can support yourself and your family and you can’t immigrate from a s-hole (breeding grounds for terrorists and street criminals:)
      https://www.lifeinnorway.net/norway-immigration-guide/

      Largest immigrant groups (1st and 2nd generation):

      National background Population
      Poland 97,196
      Lithuania 37,638
      Sweden 36,315
      Somalia 28,696
      Germany 24,601
      Iraq 22,493
      Syria 20,823
      Philippines 20,537
      Pakistan 19,973
      Eritrea 19,957
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norway

      In other words, Norway is paradise to Norwegians. They don’t need to go anywhere to have prosperous, peaceful lives, let alone the toilet the US has become.

      However…if they fail to assimilate the Middle Eastern, Pakistani and Somolian immigrants they are now letting in, Norway will be a paradise lost – like Germany, France and Britain.

      THIS IS THE END OF THE FAKE COMMENT ALERT.
      WE WILL NOW RESUME WITH OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED COMMENTING…

        YellowSnake in reply to TheFineReport.com. | January 13, 2018 at 10:26 am

        Keep up the good work. So are Norwegians (I really needed you to tell me what to all them) are itching to come?

        You don’t think they like democratic socialism? I couldn’t resist pointing that out, even though I am not the commie that your fellow house troll claims I am.

      hey you stupid commie moron, do you think there are Norwegians living in the USA?

      In fact there are nearly as many Norwegian Americans as there are Norwegians. And Norway ain’t even a shithole.

      tom_swift in reply to YellowSnake. | January 13, 2018 at 12:25 am

      They will move from Norway to escape the Caliphate.

      It’s just a matter of time.

      OleDirtyBarrister in reply to YellowSnake. | January 13, 2018 at 4:47 pm

      Yellowsnake:

      You are an oxygen thief and a waste of protoplasm. The only thing that I would care to read by you or about you is your obituary.

      I have said nothing about Norway. It has a population smaller than the MSA’s of many major American cities, and no one has ever touted it for its average high IQ or great engineering or entrepreneurial prowess. The only thing that Norway has going for it is the fact that it has oil and is a substantial exporter. I cannot imagine recruiting engineers and scientists in Norway over S. Korea, Japan, India, China, and other places with above average IQ.

      Further, since you are a liberal atheist marxist douchebag, you have no concept of economics. All of those socialist little countries you marxists admire so much have serious financial problems beneath the surface. It starts with the fact that so much of what they label as nominal GDP is government spending, and a substantial amount of consumer spending is money transferred by the govt. So organic, private sector GDP is small, and the recurring, off the books financial obligations for legislated social programs keep getting bigger. There is a story there that the numbers and financial models tell, but you cannot read or comprehend them because the DNC, Daily Kos, and Huff Post have not told you what to think about them.

And why is this the lead story on every news broadcast today? Is this story really news? No.

First, The Washington Post (Bezos Megaphone) is the worst, corrupted, source of information on any political issue. Its ownership of our only remaining local paper, spreading the “Bezos and Company” progressive mind poison, has made that paper intolerable as well. So, considering the source of this particular Trump attributed statement, it is suspect in both content and context. Regardless, if Trump used the term, as crude as it might be, it IS accurate in terms of the quality of life for many, if not most, of the residents of those countries. The racism charge from the Left is laughable in its self-incriminating result – apparently the Left can only corrolate the shitty conditions in those countries to the racial makeup of the respective populations. As a variation on the “Nail and Hammer” analogy, everything is viewed as racist if the only thing you can see is the color of someone’s skin.

The MFM has once again lost its collective minds over something ALLEGEDLY said! These idiots can’t help themselves.

Their intense hatred of Trump trounced every once of journalistic integrity they might have possessed once upon a time so much that they run with anything given to them no matter how ridiculous!

Every meeting I ever attended it was considered private conversation and not repeated because people can lose temper, be misunderstood etc. Durbin is a jerk for gossiping outside of the meeting like a kindergartener.

Thank God Trump was elected. Can you just imagine what our immigration policy would be with Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham and Durbin writing the law? Gives me the shudders

The globalist elite – a MINORITY in this country and in Britain – trying to control the rest of us for their personal gain.

Fake news. Fake movies. Fake tv shows. Fake FBI. Fake CIA. Fake Justice Department. Fake IRS. Fake republicans. Fake oath-takers (EVERY elected democrat.) Fake democrat primary elections. Fake social justice activities.

Fakes. Frausters. Traitors.

We have ONE or two guys in the entire federal government we trust, including Donald Trump. Thank God the military remains intact.

It was a good idea putting a corrupt traitor in the White House for eight years, wasn’t it?

The hell with it – let’s use the “N” word: Nancy pelosi.

Unless I see un-edited tape which includes the context, I believe nothing said by the press.

MSM is nothing more than an opium supplier selling opium to opium addicts. As the customers are addicts, each season, the quality goes down further and further.

The resulting damage, injury and even death of customers are of no concern to the supplier.

“I want to start by saying that this does not make what he said any more acceptable”

I want to start by saying that reporters should not be deciding what is acceptable. They should REPORT, not decide. Extra points for reporting actual facts once in a while.

BBC world service radio used the opportunity to interview Marxist Afro-American professors so they could smear all white Americans as racist devils.

It was the fifteen minute extended version of Orwell’s two minutes hate.

Where was all the fuss when hildabeast declared half of all Americans, our countrymen and women, were Deplorable?

Clay Travis tweets,
“2017: Me using the word ‘boobs’ on CNN is offensive and unacceptable on television.
2018: CNN uses the phrase ‘shit hole’ a thousand times on TV in one night.”

Sheesh, after all the debates you’d think after asking PDJT if he’d accept the results of the election they’d smarten up and realize he did accept it.

Tomorrow Trump will tweet something else, which the state controlling media and the holier than thou hypocritical politicians will think is outrageous. It will be the lead story and will drive this one into the rabbit hole it deserves to be in.

The sight of Democrats on fainting couches because of vulgar language is not impressive. Some of these same people were applauding women who used vulgarities in public and wore items intended to look like female genitalia at the “Women’s March” in January last year.

Grow up. I’ve heard worse in business meetings many times.

Are they claiming the Clinton Foundation et al were in Haiti, not because of trouble and misfortune conditions, but to fleece a first-world, first-class country?

Is it normal for people in first-world countries to be caught in refugee crises? Other than social justice forced immigration reform (e.g. trail of tears, welfare profits, gerrymandered districts).

Someone is lying.

Also, allegations and preponderance of hearsay, again? The fifteen century called and are unhappy with leftists reappropriating their witch hunts. And what’s up with the resumption of abortion rites? So progressive. Several centuries and more.

Anyway, the election is over. The so-called reckoning (i.e. unmasking male, female, and transgender/homosexuals) was a leverage scheme, conceived at the DNC, and birthed in the press.

    YellowSnake in reply to n.n. | January 12, 2018 at 9:09 pm

    Was there a forced relocation called the ‘trail of tears? Are there gerrymandered districts that benefit to republicans?

    Was there a Holocaust? Just checking.

    There were no witches but the investigation of Trump involves real people and real facts. Just because Trump calls it a witch hunt doesn’t make it so.

    Abortion has always existed and always will. Ever heard of a D & C? How about ‘misoprostol’? You can make it harder and you can prosecute a few, but you can’t stop it any more than a wall is going to stop drug trafficing. You are being lied to by a sheet-head. (if you claim I wrote that, I will deny it). But even though I didn’t write it, it would be true if I had written it.

    That election is over. But there will be others. Trump is just a rear guard action.

      FAKE COMMENT ALERT! FAKE COMMENT ALERT!…

      Mr. Troll brings up the ‘trail of tears’ (no, not moooochelle obama’s wardrobe, not to be confused with the ‘trail of tares’).
      But Mr. Troll brings it up out of any context, including the debate that a lot of the ‘trail of tears’ is fake history (what a shock!).
      http://thealternativehypothesis.org/index.php/2016/06/02/the-non-genocide-of-northern-native-americans/

      In any event, the trail of tears (it was called that 70 years later, after everyone involved in each side was long gone to dispute it) did not involve intentional harm. (Unlike the genocide perpetrated by communists, nazis and the imperial Japanese.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_killings_under_Communist_regimes

      And Al Gore wasn’t even alive to spread the lie!

      Then Mr. Troll brings up gerrymandering that benefits Republicans – as if the democrats (the party of the KKK) never took advantage of it.
      https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/where-did-term-gerrymander-come-180964118/

      Ku Klux Klan members in United States politics:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan_members_in_United_States_politics

      Mr. Troll continues. “…but the investigation of Trump involves real people and real facts.” But Mr. Troll doesn’t mention the only scam the investigations have revealed have been democrat crimes and treason! – And that per these investigations, Trump remains above legal reproach. (Can’t say that about hillary klinton, the fake president obama, the fake FBI, the fake IRS, the fake CIA, the fake indian Fauxcahontas, fake journalists, fake education and on and on and on…)

      Finally, Mr. Troll comes out of the alt-reality cloud, and makes a comment based in oddly solid reality: “That election is over.”

      But, the poor guy falls right back into the alt-reality drain: “Trump is just a rear guard action.” A rear-guard action is to an attempt at preventing something though it is likely too late to be prevented.

      Talk about alt-reality.

      THIS IS THE END OF OUR FAKE COMMENT ALERT.
      WE CONTINUE NOW WITH OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED COMMENTING.

      “Are there gerrymandered districts that benefit to commies democrats?”

      Why I do believe so.

      “There were no witches but the investigation of Trump involves real people and real facts.”

      Sure does. “Real” people getting ready to spend their remaining years in jail. “Real” facts that will put them there. Using the power of the government to spy on your political opposition is a crime, something you commies think is just fine. But, they are going to jail.

      On another note, Mr. Soros, could you please pay a bit more and get a better grade of Commie. The yellow ones just don’t cut it.

      tom_swift in reply to YellowSnake. | January 13, 2018 at 12:38 am

      Was there a forced relocation called the ‘trail of tears?

      The work of Andrew Jackson. Democrat.

      Are there gerrymandered districts that benefit to republicans?

      The invention of Elbridge Gerry. Democrat.

      Was there a Holocaust?

      The only concentration camps ever set up in America were the work of—you guessed it—a Demcorat.

      Yeah, great Party, there. Just great.

Oh the outrage over a word that is mild compared to the music, movies, television and media language you can hear and see in our culture on a daily basis.

Did Trump say it? I don’t know. I do know that I certainly wouldn’t take the word of Durban about anything at any time. The man’s a verifiable liar.

As for the claims of racism, what else is new. Media calls Trump a racist at least once a day on any day ending in “Y”.

Another tempest in a tea pot and another reason to distrust the MSM. What is it with their death wish?
