Let me get this straight. A US Senator, Dick Durbin, claims that President Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador, among other nations as shitholes during the recent meeting on immigration reform. Two US Senators, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, and David Perdue of Georgia say they never heard the president say such things
“President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides. But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith,” they said. “In regards to Senator Durbin’s accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest. We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades.”
So, Durbin, who also thinks the term chain migration is RAAAAACIST somehow, makes a claim. A claim which two other Senators deny. What would journalists do to report this news? Well, they would not do this
What in the Hell is this? April Ryan wants “activism” over remarks that may or may not have been made? Is that journalism? How about CNN “journalist” Chris Cuomo? You have to see this to believe it. H/T The Right Scoop
Good Freaking Grief! How is this douchebag still on TV? Consider Cuomo’s claims that the president called all Mexicans rapists? He never even came close to saying any such thing. But, that is what Cuomo thinks journalism is apparently. Cuomo also makes the completely fallacious claim that Trump defended white supremacists. Again, that is simply a lie. Throw in Cuomo’s claims that the president made disparaging remarks about Nigerians, and Haitians. A journalist would note that these claims have not been substantiated. Of course a journalist would not drag out a whiteboard, and proceed to give America a sermon on what we do or do not do in America. But, of course the sad truth is Cuomo and Ryan, and the rest are maxing out there moral ourage cards because they have an agenda. An agnda that has nothing to do with journalism, or reporting news, or imparting knowledge.
Again, all of this mouth breathing, tantrum throwing silliness is over remarks that may or may not have been made. Personally, I would not be stunned if the president made the remark, nor would I be stunned if Durbin made it up because Durbin is a leftist, and truth means nothing to the left. And while those of us with sense can laugh at this idiocy, we must also mourn the death of TV news, because this orgy of stupidity, and bigotry, and dishonesty is not news, not at all. This is far more about
journalists activists pretending to be outraged to push their own policical agenda.
