President Trump, who has been savaged in the mainstream media for crude comments he allegedly made in an off-the-record meeting with members of Congress, may, in fact, be speaking in a much more presidential manner than some think.
Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, claims the president asked rhetorically why the United States takes immigrants from “s***-hole” countries in Africa and Haiti,” while Trump admits to using “tough” language, but denies using the exact phrase.
As if on cue, members of the media almost needed Victorian fainting couches on their sets at the use of the word even as they took apparent perverse pleasure in repeating it at every opportunity like naughty boys and girls.
Unfortunately for the liberal Democrats and the media that serves as their public relations firm, it turns out that Trump’s predecessor used the exact word to describe Libya – a country in Africa – calling it a “s*** show” in 2016.
👉But Obama calling a country a #ShitShow is Presidential/good
Now I got it
Thanks for the clearing things up Libtards 👍

Obama’s use of the word two years ago in an interview published by The Atlantic magazine was apparently something that could be overlooked while Trump’s use of the word led Democrat lawmakers to propose censuring the president for what they termed his “racist” remarks.
Sen. Durbin was the only Democrat in the room and all the Republicans deny hearing the phrase.
But whether the president did or did not utter the “s” word, what has been lost is the actual debate about who the United States takes in and the impact that population will have on the country and American citizens.
The Atlantic substituted the word “mess” in the printed interview but noted that Obama had called Libya a “s*** show,” which is apparently an acceptable word when spoken by a liberal Democrat.
Reporters and mainstream media hosts and anchors reacted with shock calling Trump’s use of the phrase “racist” and “crude,” as though they themselves had never heard – or used it.
Even more hypocritical is the idea that presidents, real presidents never use the word or any expletive.
For anyone who wants to know how presidents talk, a quick youtube search for the expletive-laden tapes of Richard Nixon, President Lyndon Johnson’s racist use of the “n” word in the Oval Office, or for that matter, President John F. Kennedy, will make the hair on the back of the neck stand on end.
And no one can really believe that career Army soldier Dwight D. Eisenhower or the blunt, plainspoken Harry Truman used more delicate language during their time in the Oval Office.
Even Obama’s vice-president has made dubious comments, including calling the president, “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
But again, such a comment is just fine if it comes out of the mouth of a Democrat.
The only difference is that in those times, the press understood its role as the unbiased chronicler of events rather than today’s media that is on a crusade to nullify the election of a duly elected president.
Do you think the media is making too much of the phrase President Trump may or may not have used to describe Haiti and countries in Africa? Is this just more overtly blatant liberal media hypocrisy?
