A few minutes ago Trump called out “Dicky Durbin” on Twitter for misrepresenting what he said in that meeting last week that has created a ‘sh**hole’ storm in the media:
Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting. Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15, 2018
Trump also blames Dicky Durbin for blowing the DACA deal and hurting our military. Somehow I don’t think Durbin is going to mind.
For what it’s worth, I think Trump is probably right that Durbin misrepresented what he said. He’s a known liar and a weasley one.
I do believe, however, that Trump probably referred to African nations as ‘sh**hole/house’ countries, but I don’t think it was in a racist attempt to demean them.
The ironic thing about this is that with all of the media hyperventilating and obsessing over this, no one has even heard the audio of what Trump said because there apparently isn’t any.
But like Lowry said this morning, the media is running with Durbin’s word as if it’s the gospel truth.
And they are just continuing to hammer this all day every day. It looks like Trump is going to have to bomb N. Korea just to get the media to start covering something else.
