GOP Liars Tom Cotton, David Perdue And Kirstjen Nielsen (Re Trump Racist Shithole Vulgarity)

Sir, they're not shithole countries. For one, Donald Trump is not their president ~ Stephen Colbert during the The Late Show monologue, 1/11/2017.

Apparently referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African Nations (all of them?) as "shitholes" was a strategy. Trump stooge Thomas Lifson, writing for the American Thinker, sez "Trump has his enemies dancing to his tune with shithole Countries". The "strategy"? To make "everyone whom he outraged... repeat the words he wants to sink in with the public" [1].

Sure. Conservative blogger Erick Erickson tweeted that "he spoke to one of the president's friends who said Trump called him up to brag about the remarks because he felt it would play well with his base".

That's it. He said it, he was proud he said it. Or maybe it was "shithouse". Even though that's a distinction without a difference. As per Vox, "publicly, they deny Trump said shithole. Privately, they claim he said shithouse. It's bizarre".

The shit-whatever racist insult was another nod to the racist base. People like Freethinke and Thersites. What Trump was saying to these very fine people was "I hate black people from shithole countries and don't want them here, same as you".

But the twice named Erick is not a fan of Donald Trump, so he probably lied. Like Senator Dick Durbin, who first reported that Trump used the vulgarity, and that he used it multiple times. Senators Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who were at the meeting, said they had not heard the predisent use the insulting vultarity.

At first. Later they changed their story. The new narrative (coming after the predisent tweeted that he had used "tough language" but NOT that specific vulgar term) was that Dick Durbin "has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings" (Cotton's words on Face The Nation, 11/14/2018) [2].

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen repeated the same "tough language" bullshit in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on 1/16/2018. Her dissembling so transparent as to be laughable. If you find perjury laughable. She was asked if Lindsey Graham repeated Trump's "tough language". Nielsen said he did, but "couldn't remember" the exact words. What a load of bullplop.

(Video: DHS Secretary Nielsen lies under oath. 2:46).


When asked by Senator Patrick Leahy, "Did president Trump use that word, or a substantially similar word, to describe certain countries", Kirstjen Nielsen lied. "I did not hear that word used, no sir". When pressed she answered "I don't dispute that the president was using tough language. Others in the room were also using tough language".

How can you confirm "tough language" if you don't know what the "tough language" was? She refused to say the word (words?) because it was "shithole". Or a substantially similar word. So what if she perjured herself, I guess. Trumpers don't care, of course. If Trump didn't call these countries "shitholes" then he SHOULD have. We'd prefer White people from Norway (for example) to emigrate to the United States.

Although Nielsen isn't sure if Norway is a majority White nation. As if Norwegians are lined up waiting to enter the United States. Norway being a high income country with universal health care and a comprehensive social security system. They also rank first on the World Happiness Report and other such indexes.

Maybe Trump was referring to Normay, which might be a country with a majority Black population? Although all the Normayian Blacks are high skilled, high earners who yearn to leave Normay in order to start new lives in the United States.

There is no such country as "Normay", however (or Binomo or Nambia). Trump cited lily White Norway (which is 86.2% Ethnic Norwegian) because he just met with Norway's prime minister, Erna Solberg.

In a press conference following the meeting Trump mentioned Norway's order of (nonexistent) F-52 fighter jets, went on at length about how the Democrats colluded with Russia to lose the election, then slammed green energy (when "Norway is arguably the leader in the global pursuit for sustainable energy)).

Predisent Trump is right, the world is laughing at us. Although the laughing isn't because we're investigating Trump's collusion with Russia. It's due to the fact that we "elected" an incompetent reality teevee star buffoon and racist misogynist bigot as our president.

[2] The Washington Times says Cotton "was referring to the Obama administration contradicting Mr. Durbin's account of a 2013 meeting in which he claimed then-House Republican leader Eric Cantor told President Obama, I cannot even stand to look at you. At the time, White House press secretary Jay Carney said it didn't happen". Neither Durbin nor Carney were present at the meeting in question, however. According to Carney "I looked into this and spoke with somebody who was in that meeting, and it did not happen". Regarding the quote, John Boehner said Durbin "invented [it] out of thin air". The White House later issued a statement that read "While the quote attributed to a Republican lawmaker in the House GOP meeting with the President is not accurate, there was a miscommunication when the White House read out that meeting to Senate Democrats, and we regret the misunderstanding".

  1. Your link to FreeThinke actually links to Thersite.

    tRump is a master at manipulation. He, and his surrogates, are controlling the narrative with smoke and mirrors strategy and manipulation that keep his base pumped.

  2. Thank you, RN. Error corrected.

    Re your comment, I'm watching Mitch McTurtle speaking right now. Of course it's the Democrats fault. Even though Trump (1) said we need a "good shutdown", and (2) blew up the deal to fix DOCA with his "shithole" comments.

    Yet they try to spin this as the "Schumer shutdown". When Republicans are in control and have the votes to pass whatever they want. They passed their tax cut legislation with ZERO Democratic votes, so they could keep the government open with ZERO Democratic votes (and, according to what I just heard on MSNBC, they have 5 Democratic votes). This is ridiculous.

    Of course McTurtle is playing to racism by blaming Democrats for shutting down the government "over illegal immigration". Dick.

    1. Yup. He's playing to the base, tRump's base. In the end this could turn out very well for the majority of the nation. The ones who are actually rational and non racist.

      The tRump opposition must play it smart and make no missteps. If the economy keeps humming, unemployment remains low, and the DOW keeps climbing people will vote their pocketbooks and wallets. Wasn't it Bill Clinton who said, It's the economy stupid?

      Folks generally have short memories, especially when economic times are good for them. They tend to overlook the other stuff. Maybe with tRump it will be different, he's so egregiously bad.

  4. Why do you say "now"? This has always been my primary blog. What other blog did you think might have become my primary blog?

  6. Last summer I was invited to contribute to writerbeat.com, aka the Writer Beat. It has been addictive. But you guys probably understand my addictive personality.

    (O)CT(O)PUS was similarly invited at almost the same time, but he instantly haired and never even left one comment on his own post or any other.

    The Writer Beat has a distinct majority of right-wing contributors. There are only about five or six liberal or moderate contributors. Most liberals take one look around and get the fuck out. The host goes by the name of Autumn Cote. She has little difficulty enlisting and promoting right-wing or otherwise saddled contributors. It has proven to be much more difficult for her to recruit and retain more liberal and moderate voices.

    With your permission, or by your leave, Dervish, I will point her to your blog. One thing interesting about the WB is that it is international. I could use one or two more friendly authors.

  7. You can point her to my blog. I don't know that I'd be interested, however.
