Some Trump Supporters Renounce Support After Sh*thole Comments

Here are a sampling:

President @realDonaldTrump your "shithole countries" comment is unpresidential, and I'm VERY sorry I voted for you! #Haiti #Africa

The Democrats Double Speak Regarding Trump's Sh*thole Seen Round The World Comments

The Democrats Double Speak Regarding Trump's Sh*thole Seen Round The World Comments

Another Trump controversy is afoot, so I thought I would address it.

In an Oval Office meeting to discuss immigration reform, the issue of TPS came up. TPS is Temporary Protected Status per Wikipedia:

In 1990, as part of the Immigration Act of 1990 ("IMMACT"), P.L. 101-649, Congress established a procedure by which the Attorney General may provide temporary protected status to immigrants in the United States who are temporarily unable to safely return to their home country because of ongoing armed conflict, an environmental disaster, or other extraordinary and temporary conditions.[2]

Trump made comments that have caused a lot of controversy:

President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a b…

Could Trump Risk His Base With the Wrong Immigration Deal?

In 2013, Trump tweeted two things:

.@GOP need to face reality – not one of the illegal immigrants granted amnesty will vote Republican.

Amnesty is suicide for Republicans.Not one of those 12 million who broke our laws will vote Republican.Obama is laughing at @GOP.

I took the opportunity to watch the full meeting Trump had at the White House today.  It was nearly an hour, and it was bipartisan.  Trump stated unequivocally his support for DACA.  I'm honestly torn on DACA.  I did support it at one time, but after watching them bussed in for a protest wherein they attacked Trump and conservatives, watching their protests and seeing them even interrupt people on their side like Nancy Pelosi when she was speaking, and seeing multiple dreamers interviewed who want amnesty not only for their families but open borders to bring over more relatives, my support …

Anderson Cooper Loses The Mask - Drops Veneer of Objectivity - Attacks Trump On Twitter!

Trump Tweeted this morning:


Donald J. Trump‏  

The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!

Anderson Cooper responded:


Anderson Cooper‏


Replying to @realDonaldTrump

Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.

First of all, Trump did not endorse Moore in the primary. He endorsed Strange. He's not denying he supported Moore in the general; he just thought he'd have a hard time winning. He was right. Cooper's Tweet is #FakeNews


This is FANTASTIC for Trump. Trump has claimed for the longest time that reporters (CNN in particular) had a personal animus towards him. Anderson dropped the thin veneer of objectivity and proved his point with a personal attack AND false Twe…

Trump's Prophetic Words About The Jones/Moore Election & This Election Vs. 2016 By The Numbers

When the Alabama Republican Senate Primaries were going on, Trump endorsed Senator Luther Strange.  He said Luther Strange and he had a good working relationship and that he was a vote easily given that Trump needed when he was having trouble rallying the healthcare votes.

Many people, however, criticized Trump for that choice.  I was among them to an extent.  I was frustrated, as were many, at the time with the Republican inaction.  They couldn't get healthcare through on multiple attempts, and they still don't back him on immigration.  At the time, the tax reform bill hadn't gone through as it has now.  We also saw few standing up for Trump with respect to the Russia probe.  Therefore, I think the frustration with McConnell led me to support an anti-establishment figure as McConnell had backed Luther Strange.

However, I recall the night of the rally with Trump and Strange.  Trump got up there calling Strange Big Luther (a reference to his height) and talked about how he …

The Media (Who Only Talked About the Navajo Because Of Trump) Accuse Trump Of Using Racial Slur To Navajo

Yesterday, while having an event celebrating the Navajo Code Talkers, Trump made a quip about Elizabeth Warren:

"I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people. You were here long before any of us were here. Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time ... longer than you -- they call her Pocahontas!  But you know what, I like you. You are special people."

The media went ballistic and are still going bonkers this morning.  I watched the event, though, and I find it disheartening that the media didn't cover the full event.  They only isolated one sentence from it.  A check of timelines from reporters present quickly shows that reporters covered only the line about Elizabeth Warren (for example CNN's Zeleny and Acosta) - nothing else.

The CNN article - just Pocahontas:
