..I probably wouldn't..
« on: January 12, 2018, 07:34:21 AM »
.
probably wouldn't have used the words "shit hole" to describe Haiti, El Salvador and all of Africa as I've only been to El Salvador (and it is, as described)

"armpits of the world" would have been my choice

but, from what I've read over the years, "shit hole" just might be an appropriate description

I am not politically correct and never will be so I sure don't take issue w/ others that are not but use a vocabulary that I put away long ago.
I do think he has fueled a fire against himself by his rhetoric and social media that is not what I would have done.
Like Shipwreck I would have used a different word. Armpit is a good one.

BUT!!!!!!!! He is still head and shoulders, mountain peaks above, where we would have been with the killery debacles we almost had.

Heaven help us if Opra runs. There just may be enough SnowFlakes in this country now to elect her with all the dead that vote too.

Just calls it as he sees it. Have heard that term used to describe some 3rd world countries as long as I can remember. One thing about POTUS using the politically correct euphemism isn't something he gives a rats ass about.

Haven’t been to as many countries as some but of the 40 I have been to, (including El Salvador and places in Africa and every other continent except Antarctica) I’ve been to enough *****SHITHOLES**** to realize there are a lot of them out there, including El Salvador, and most countries in Africa and elsewhere.
He’s right, just political incorrect.
You can ask my wife, I use that descriptor a lot referring to those places. 
Ironically, most wouldn’t be shitholes if their governments weren’t so corrupt.

Yes sir.
Corrupt is the operative word.
Mexico is the only country I have been to. That was over 45yrs ago. Not very well traveled.
Still agree w/ the above.

Personally I got no issue with it.

Preferable to refer to them in politically correct terminology.

morning chuckle.....yesterday the Haitian community of Miami marched in protest of Prez Trump's truism comments about the country of Haiti

question (rhetorical, of course) :  if Haiti isn't a shithole why do these, uh, people choose to live in the US (vs living in their country of birth)

my opinion is that these, uh, people are part of the reason that Miami itself is turning into "one of those places"

i kind of like a president that doesn't beat around the bush and speaks his mind, sometimes at the expense of hurting some of the delicate snowflake's feelings!

maybe of some of these people who's delicate feelings were so offended were actually working to do something constructive, or positive, instead of wasting all of their time and energy being offended and complaining about it, then things would get done in short order.

Let’s cut they the crap, what constitutes a shithole?
Poor living conditions for the masses.
High levels of corruption.
A lack of public services or public safety or low quality of services.  .
Reduced opportunity for citizens.
Overt squalor in the streets.

According to the media, calling a country a Shit Hole is a racist statement because the people that live there are a different race.
To The President, people who live in nice countries typically do not want to leave. People who live in Shit Holes, tend to want to get the hell out.
