Racist. It’s out there now. The word that defines a presidency. Thursday may well have been a turning point in the allegedly presidential administration of Donald Trump. He made one of the most reprehensible comments on the planet. And CNN took off the gloves and called him out as the racist pig that he is.
The comment Trump made was during White House talks about immigration. Specifically, it was reported that he said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” The question was posed by Trump while discussing an immigration deal including the restoration of protections for “immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African nations ravaged by war and natural disasters as part of a larger immigration deal.”
CNN Anchors Are Speaking Out — We All Should Be
In a heartfelt message, Anderson Cooper pointed out the remark. He then elaborated on the resilience of the Haitian people and how deserving of respect they are. Don Lemon didn’t mince words or beat around the bush at all. He opened his segment by stating in plain English:
“The president of the United States is racist.”
The internet has been ablaze since the Trump comment was made public. People are outraged. The newly-coined hashtags #ShitholeDonny and #ShitholePresident are becoming quite populated with memes, comments, and news articles. We’ve known since before he was elected that Trump was a racist. He has been sued over housing issues and refusal to rent to African-Americans as far back as the 1980s.
Americans Are Better Than This
The outrage is happening now because Trump has been getting increasingly blatant about these slips of the tongue and voicing his racist opinions. He has an international stage. When Trump makes comments like this and Republicans do nothing the world is watching. American people are tired of being represented by a bigoted, racist pig. That is not who we are.
Some of the posts from Twitter are very telling:

Have people finally had enough? Trump is due for his first REAL medical examination today with a REAL doctor. Will the results be made public? I’m dying to know if this is because Trump is suffering from dementia or some other debilitating issue or if he’s just a run-of-the-mill shithole.
