    Donald Trump described El Salvador, Haiti and certain African nations, as “****hole” countries during a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, according to a report.

    “Why are we having all these people from ****hole countries come here?” Trump said, after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from those countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to the Washington Post, citing aides briefed on the meeting.
    The president wondered aloud why the US would not instead want to bring people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he had met with the day before.

    what a douchebag

    interesting story today on npr regarding 'chain migration'
    originally conceived by republicans as a way to encourage more white northern europeans to move to the u.s. it backfired because by the mid seventies migration from europe to america had slowed drastically as europe recovered from wwii

    in the meantime, immigration from asia, afrika, and mexico was increasing

    The link isn't working because the forum software amends $hithole with asterisks.

    Just change the asterisks in the url to $hit (not a dollar sign) when you get to the Guardian error page.

    Briefly what Trump said..

    Donald Trump described El Salvador, Haiti and certain African nations, as “$hithole” countries during a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, according to a report.

    “Why are we having all these people from $hithole countries come here?” Trump said, after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from those countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to the Washington Post, citing aides briefed on the meeting.

    Once again the great leader uses language that would get him kicked out of the WoodenBoat Forum. You sure know how to pick 'em, Amurca.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I don’t care about the language.

    I care about the failure to comprehend the fundamental motive for immigration.

    Hence forth, any time any Republican raises the issue of decorum or impropriety, look them straight in the eye, and tell them to STFU!

    Trump 'in Oval Office foul-mouthed outburst about migrants'
    The New York Times reported three weeks ago that Mr Trump had said Haitians "all have Aids" during a June meeting about immigration.
    A backlash to his latest alleged remarks was swift.
    Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democratic lawmaker, tweeted: "I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the Presidency."
    Another black Democratic lawmaker, Cedric Richmond, said Mr Trump's comments "are further proof that his Make America Great Again agenda is really a Make America White Again agenda".

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    I am trying to remember how many times the Republicans have referred to Democratic presidents as "unpresidential".

    Anyone want to help me remember the reasons?

    Interesting how the top 10 are from the furthest north and south. I'd like to come up with a theoretical explanation for that.

    How about this? Numbers 1 and 2 are resource rich, I don't now about 3 thru 10, but I think 5 and 7 still have considerable natural resources. Perhaps being the more remote areas has protected them from over exploitation, for the time being at least.

    Still having resources allows for more socialist practices, which makes for happier populations and less desperate measures being taken, especially with regards to how they treat the rest of the world. In short, it's a list of the countries who are most polite to their own and others.

    to the op, he was speaking to his (racist) base.. true 'Aryian' fans. Norway was lauded by the original nazis as having the 'purest people', no?

    I wouldn't use that word. I was "proud" of Rudy for his leadership in the immediate wake of 9-11. I like the straight talk, especially when all the right people are offended by it. I happen to think he asks a pretty good question, if ever so rudely. We live in a coarsened age.

    All the NY'ers I know, virtually all of them friends of the wife, detested him, loved him during the crisis, and then promptly went back to detesting him.
