Fox News host: People who leaked Trump’s ‘sh*thole’ comments ‘make our country look bad’
Appearing on Fox News’ Outnumbered, occasional host Rachel Campos-Duffy said she was unhappy with Donald Trump’s choice of words with Congressional leaders — calling foreign countries “sh*tholes” — but complained that the lawmakers who leaked the president’s comments were the real problem.
“He was talking about the countries being not so great,” Campos-Duffy explained to her co-hosts without uttering the word. “First of all, I don’t agree with this term. I’m glad Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) put that [written condemnation] out and I would too. Sometimes the best immigrants come from those kind of countries.”
“That said, I still have a problem with people in a private meeting going out and saying what the president said, when they know, like right now, I just heard that the Panamanian ambassador just quit over this,” the wife of Congressman Sean Duffy (R-WI) continued.
“I mean, it makes our country look bad,” she elaborated. “I think the Democrats, in this case, should have used some discretion. And even if he did say something like that, not repeat it for the benefit of the country.”
