Once again, the Trump Administration has found a new low. And once again, the President put his racism on full display when he spoke disparagingly about Black people while speaking longingly about white Europeans.
In Trump's mind, if you're a racist marching in Charlottesville in a white supremacy rally, you're "fine people." If you're Black, you're from a shithole country.
To compound this horrendous behavior even more, notwithstanding that many people confirmed he said what he did and the White House did not deny it, Trump then claimed on Friday he had never said what he did.
He was, to put no fine a point on it, lying through his teeth.
I was particularly heartened to see the Los Angeles Times called him out for this in an editorial (link here) with the title "Trump is a liar, but his 'shithole' remark shows he's often scariest when he says what he truly believes." I might be wrong, but I believe this is the first time a major media outlet has specifically called him a liar.
We're slightly less a year into the Trump administration. How much lower will Republicans in Congress allow him to drag this country down before they do something about it?
