    And you not knowing his language negatively affects him. His choice is his choice. Your choice is your choice.

    So, apparently the whole "shithole" flap was a pack of lies.

    Yep and just like all the others what Trump was "alleged to have said" by dubious sources (at least there were actual names this time) turned out to be a complete fabrication


    you're right, CLASSIC!

    Wow, so he didn't refer to a bunch of countries as shitholes. Glad you were here to dispute the first hand account from both Republicans and Democrats in the room.

    Are you saying that the living conditions in most of Africa can be classified as something else? Who are you pandering to?

    Step 1 to any solution is recognizing the problem for what it is

    Hard to say since the parts of Africa I've been to are fine. Regardless, that's not really the problem with his remarks as a whole.

    By the way....the average per capita of a sub-Saharan African citizen is $764

    in 1993 it was $742

    PC seems to be a clever way to keep those people from realizing their lot in life

    How does that matter? Trump was painting with a broad brush. Let's just say I feel he'd include one of them as a "shithole" by name alone

    Well, it matters because you have now painted Africa with a broad brush yourself with your travel experiences comment. I'm curious as to where you've been to make your determination.

    No, I didn't. Read my post. I explicitly said it would be hard for me to say since I've not been to all of Africa. I made no determination, just sharing my experience and how that limits any attempt to qualify.

    I literally said the opposite

    Give me a break. No matter how many 5 star resorts one has stayed at, a very safe assumption can be made on the conditions in most of Africa based on the readily available economic data, world health care reports, data on infrastructure, education levels etc.

    So your comments are coming off as either deliberate or naïve at this point

    Sorry I just don't read it that way.

    Why do we take these PEOPLE from these shit holes...let's send THEM back (to their shit holes)".

    He is talking about immigrants who are people...what other word should he use that wouldn't offend delicate senses?

    My wife would frequently complains its not what I say it its how I say it, thought nothing about the Trump comments, her comment was he is right those places are shitholes....

    shit·hole
    [ˈSHitˌhōl]
    NOUN
    vulgar slang
    shitholes (plural noun) · shit-hole (noun) · shit-holes (plural noun) · shit-hole (noun) · shit-holes (plural noun)
    1. an extremely dirty, shabby, or otherwise unpleasant place.

    Sure its slang and vulgar, but try to tell me that every one of those asshats in DC don't talk like that in DC.

    Don't worry people. Everything is ok for you now. The American anti-trumpers are of the opinion that you don't live in a s..thole!

    and don't worry. Next time there's an opportunity for them to exploit you to enrich themselves, you can bet they'll be there to try and sell how desperate the conditions are there for donations.

    You know nothing about my visits, but I'm enjoying more broad brush flailing.
