CNN analyists and former CIA officer Phil Mudd lost it when the news broke about President Donald Trump's comments about "sh*thole countries" like Haiti and African countries being less than places like Norway.


During a panel discussion about the president's remarks, Mudd told host Wolf Blitzer to hold his ears and that his response was personal. Mudd called himself a "proud sh*tholer" as a descendent of family members who "were called wops and mackerel-eaters" when they came to the United States.

"A century ago we called people slant eyes ... and now they're a backbone of this country," Mudd continued. "In the 1940s, we called people traitors because they came from a sh*thole country called Japan and were ashamed."

"We called people spicks and wetbacks," he went on. "The president is growing this country on the backbone of bigotry that comes from when I saw my family called spicks, wops and wetbacks. We should be ashamed. we've learned way too many lessons and history will tell you, if you don't read history, you'll repeat them. That's what our president did for us today."
