I’m sure all corners of the galaxy and our ships at sea have heard about this one by now.
Several members of US Congress strongly rebuked President Donald Trump's reported comments criticizing immigrants coming to the United States from what he called "shithole countries" https://t.co/0LttG82TQx pic.twitter.com/X7YIfyv8ve

I’m once again left to wonder if Donald Trump is among our readers.
That’s not to say I completely agree with Trump’s response on policy grounds, except for the end of whatever this “lottery” immigration from Third World shitholes is, as well as chain immigration. That’s all great.
I don’t disagree with Trump’s sentiment at all, as the excerpt shows. But it’s a diplomatic gaffe when it goes public that he said it. Trump needs to apologize to the shitholes he offended. Maybe he could throw another billion dollars in aid at them.
The funny thing is that whoever leaked this accidentally did Trump a favor. His base was convinced that he was about to sell them out on the Dreamers in a bad deal with the Senate. The question he reportedly asked, “Why are we so obsessed with bringing in people from shitholes?” is the primary one they’re obsessed with and they love that he asked it out loud.
I find no fault.
Light posting on my part this week on account of illness (just so you know that I am being karmacally punished for my wickedness). Seems to be the same flu/cold/whatever that’s been laying waste all over the country. Since I barely leave the house on a normal day, I don’t have the luxury of blaming people from Third World shitholes.
