Jake Tapper forces GOP Rep. Mia Love to admit Trump’s ‘sh*thole’ comments about Africa are ‘racist’

Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah on Sunday accused President Donald Trump of making “racist” remarks about Haiti and African Countries.

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Love sidestepped the fact that Republican lawmakers had yet to forcefully condemn Trump for reportedly saying that African countries were a “shithole” and immigrants from Haiti did not deserve to stay in the United States.

“Were the comments racist, do you think?” Tapper asked Love.

“Um, well,” Love stuttered. “I think they were — yes. I think that they were unfortunate. I don’t know if they were taken — I wasn’t in the room when the comments were made. I don’t know which context they were made. I’m looking forward to finding out what happened.”

"No reported mention of service members," Jansing said about Trump's rant. "I cannot remember a president who did not give credit to the men and women who fought, who bled, who risked their lives and in too many cases always, gave their lives, made the ultimate sacrifice, and then he exits risking the resurgence of ISIS. What does it say to the men and women of the military who have committed their professional lives to this -- to keeping America safe?"

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain wallop Trump’s ‘sexist’ outburst at Pelosi: ‘Grow a pair, man!’

"The View" co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain ganged up on President Donald Trump for horrifically botching the military operation in Syria, and then throwing a tantrum when Republicans rebuked him.

Trump has enjoyed nearly slavish devotion from his congressional GOP allies, but House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi said the president had a "meltdown" during a White House meeting after the House voted to condemn his military withdrawal and abandonment of the Kurds.

"His problem right now too is that social media, everyone can see the atrocities that are happening right now in Syria with the Kurds," McCain said. "It's all over social media, and I have been apoplectic for a week and a half now, and everything we said was going to happen is happening. Our allies are being slaughtered."
