That's the one Seth globes joke I liked a bit, and maybe just because I wish it could come true.

Trump showed his racists beliefs again yesterday. It really makes me angry. Shouldn't we have a president better than that? I hear his supporters say he is politically incorrect. The last president that spoke like that is probably Andrew Johnson. Others were racist but knew better to say things like this. You wouldn't see Lincoln, FDR, Washington, or even Reagan say things like that. He is a great embarrassment for our nation.

More and more "sources" are coming out this morning claiming the "shithole" comment is true, and even if it is, it's 100% unsurprising. EDIT: Durbin is on the record now, saying Trump did use those words. It doesn't matter if Trump is President; he's still the same embarrassing, pathetic bigot he's always been. He could hold a press conference today and call Obama a fuckin' illegal Muslim nigger and it'd be believable and not surprising in the least.

He's obviously not going to change, so rather than always being "surprised" and discussing why he'd say such things, it's beyond time to reject his presidency and prepare to act on it. It should have been done day one.

Other than Jimmy Carter, are there any other presidents who didn't swear?

Presidents just shouldn’t say shithole in general even if they’re bad countries to live in.

Agreed.

He’s not wrong that those are not nice countries to live in, but that’s just rude.

I'm shocked that anyone is shocked. The man has used language like this before, he's said racist things before, he's bragged about his sexual assaults, he's called nazis good people -- really, why is this news? It's just more of the same.

Also, just to clarify:

Fox News is trying once again to distract us from what is really being said by arguing that the cursing isn't a big deal. And it isn't. But this isn't about the cursing.

"Shithole country" really means "I don't want black people coming here."

It's like when he talked about grabbing pussies and people said "Oh, you're all upset that he used the word 'pussy.'" NO, the bad word in that sentence is "grab."

Let's not get distracted by the words, and instead look at what the shithead really is saying.

How is calling Haiti a shithole country racist? It’s objectively not a nice place to live, nothing necessarily to do with the color of skin.

He said Hati and African countries and instead would rather have immigrants from Norway. So he would rather have white people over black/brown people. Like anybody from Norway would want to come here.

You can't get much whiter than Norway.

At this point, nobody is shocked. This man is already defined. The Dems need a liable centrist and they cake walk no doubt in 2020 if Trump even seeks reelection

Hopefully Trump doesn't run because I don't think he can win. Hopefully they run a likable Republican.

Why don't more immigrants go to Norway if it's so much nicer there than in the U.S.?

Well two reasons, one they don't have enough land, and the climate isn't for everyone. The reason Norway has so many positive things is because it is a smaller population.

Trump is probably more popular than ever in his base. If the Democrats nominate an establishment candidate the Berniebros aren't passionate about, matching the MAGA-ers enthusiasm is still the problem.

Yeah, it's going to be interesting. As much as I find Oprah (or at least her persona) to be annoying, she and Bernie are maybe the only two people right now that enough people could get behind to beat Trump and that's very pathetic. That's of course assuming Trump makes it to 2020 and Mueller doesn't catch up with him. If it's Pence then he'll probably be a lame duck (assuming he even wants the job considering the circumstances or if Mueller doesn't catch up to him too).

Going back to zwack's comment, why do I get a feeling Sarah Palin might somehow not be done? If Don-Don and co get ousted, she seems like the perfect MAGA fill-in.

It is hard to say at this moment. I think if they can find a likeable candidate they should win. Hillary wasn't really likeable and neither is Bernie. I don't care for him and I am ademocrat. He looks like an old curmudgeon. I want someone younger at least 50s. I think Gillenbrand or Cory Booker look like strong possibilities.

A lot of Republicans were not fond of Trump. But they’d rather a bad Republican than any Democrat take office.

By likable I just mean professional and not as immature acting as Trump. Obviously if you’re on the left you’re going to find it hard to like a Republican however much of a standup guy he may be otherwise.

Impeach Trump and stick Pence in there. Pence is a bad Republican and morally despicable, yet he'd still be a step-up from Trump. But then of course they'd alienate their entire fanbase (and that's really what it is at this point) in the short-term by doing that and they'd lose power. And since politics is a game to them about power instead of doing good (unless you're uber rich) the potential stand-up guys have to keep their mouth's shut if they want a job.

I'm sure there are good Republicans out there. They're just being very quiet right now and that's a problem.

More people still voted for Democrats over Trump in the last election -- the weirdness of the Electoral College is the only reason Trump is in there.

If we Democrats had a candidate who didn't start off being disliked by 50% of the population we would have won. I don't think it will be that difficult to beat Trump, assuming he's still in office by that time. This is especially true if we can get a candidate that can get Democrats out, enthusiastic, and voting.
