Thursday/ the President of the United States is obnoxious, and then lies about it

So this happened in the Oval Office on Thursday, when Trump discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.  Trump, per the Washington Post: ‘Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?’ .  On Friday morning, Senator Dick Durban confirmed that he used the word several times.


Early Friday morning, Trump denied in tweets that he used derogatory language, as the fall-out continued. The government of Botswana sent a letter inquiring if they are a sh** hole country as well.  (And how about South Africa, President Trump?). The US ambassador to Panama announced his resignation.
