CNN hosts were completely unhinged as they reacted to President Trump’s alleged “s**thole” statement about certain third world countries.
Media analyst Mark Dice breaks it down…
During a bipartisan White House meeting on Thursday, members of Congress asked Trump to consider upholding protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and a handful of African countries to help strike a deal on immigration. According to the Washington Post, he shot the idea down, and then some.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump reportedly said, adding that the US should be looking for more immigrants from countries like Norway.
Before the president flat-out denied the quote on Friday, the story tore through Twitter, got the word “shithole” printed in the New York Times (a first), and quickly became the only thing anyone wanted to talk about on cable news.
