Trump booster says you have to ‘drill down’ into Trump’s ‘sh*thole’ remarks to understand them

Published

Republican strategist John Thomas argued to CNN over the weekend that President Donald Trump’s alleged “shithole” remarks about African countries made made sense if one would take the time to “drill down” on the sentiments.

During a panel discussion about the president’s reportedly racist remarks about Haiti and Africa, CNN host Martin Savidge noted that Republicans had a “sort of selective memory” when it came to racist statements made by the president.

Thomas replied: “I also think if you drill down and you look at that word, s—hole — now, it shouldn’t have ever been used if, in fact, it even was used, which is in question — but the issue is… Would you travel to Africa without your vaccinations or would you rather travel to Norway without vaccinations?”

"They don't just attack people of color, they also specifically go after women of color," she continued.

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks likely lied to Congress -- and Democrats have a plan to prove it, a Democrat on the House Judiciary said on MSNBC on Friday.

Anchor Peter Alexander interviewed Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) about potential perjury by Hicks, who was a close confidant of Trump during his campaign, transition, and administration.

"It has been several months since President Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen testified that President Trump directed him to pay hush-money payments to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, but new documents muddy the waters a bit for former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who testified to the House Judiciary Committee that she had no knowledge of the payments before they were made," Alexander reported.

‘Liberal paper straws don’t work’: Trump wants plastic straws but has ‘bigger problems’ to worry about

Published

on

Swapping paper for plastic turned out to be the last straw for Donald Trump, who said Friday there are "bigger problems" than plastic drinking straws -- the day after his reelection campaign manager promoted branded ones on Twitter.

The president made his position clear to reporters at the White House when, between questions about Iran and China, one asked him about growing efforts to ban plastic straws.

"I do think we have bigger problems than plastic straws," Trump replied.

After a brief pause, he expanded on the point, asking: "You have a little straw. What about the plates, the wrappers and everything else that are much bigger and made of the same material?"
