Fox News and Fox Business have not repeated the word "shi*hole" once, according to transcript searches.
It was quite a contrast to CNN, where hosts and guests used the word dozens of times on Thursday evening and Friday morning. On MSNBC, the word was used a handful of times.
Eh, if true it is a pretty stupid thing to say. But the outrage from the media is significantly worse IMO.
The claim of this being about racism is pretty damn old. If a country is run like s**t, it is a s**thole. The African countries are for the most part run like s**t and there are horrendous things that happen there. Are they defending the awful things that are happening there just because the leaders are people of color? That is absurd. The media and the left's rush to now defend these terrible places also runs strictly contradictory to their claim that these refugees and illegals don't have anywhere to go back to. Why are people flocking to leave for here and why do we "need" to accept them with open arms if their original homes are such great places?
It is a stupid and inappropriate comment for the president to make, but not racist. Their rush to shout racism about literally everything he says is pretty absurd. I swear that Trump could say that s**t smells, and the media would jump on it and call that racist and disagree somehow. Fair, unbalanced, non partisan my ass. And I'm not even a fan of him outside of agreeing with a couple things that he did this past year, and some of the comedy over people freaking out about stupid things like this and the memes that come from it.
Side note, it is pretty funny to me that we have bombed how many "s**thole" countries for years, also turning some into s**tholes, and the media is mostly silent. But Trump just calls them s**thole countries and they go insane. There is so much absurdity in everything going on right now it is hard to comprehend.
