Shithole

Three posts dropped on my Facebook timeline today; they contained the following text:

1. “Dick Durbin the lying POS who made up the “Sh!thole” story and started the Sh!tstorm.”
2. “Tonight we skip the tremendous growing economy and go to a bad word Trump said”
3. “I think it’s adorable people are offended by trump saying shithole i’m offended by people wearing vagina hats i’m offended by men going into women’s bathrooms i’m offended by people who disrespect our flag etc etc (full text below)

I am less and less inclined to respond to this sort of nonesense but by the vagaries of Facebook’s prioretization algoriths, these three posts arrived consecutively on my timeline despite having divergent time stamps.

The first post is a classic “shoot the messanger” defense in which Senator Durbin is accused of being a lying POS (piece of shit I would guess) this could have been dismissed as a he said she said thing were it not for the Republican Senator Lindsey Graham confirming his Democratic colleague’s version of what Trump said.

The remaining two posts arriving on my timeline indicate a belief that Trump did indeed say “Shithole” because rather than denying that Trump referred to countries in Africa as “Shithole countries” they acknowledge that he said it but claim the controversy is over the word rather than the racist context in which the word was used. This is the same distraction tactic used to divert attention from Trump’s confession of sexual molestation to a mere bagatelle over his use of the word pussy.

No wonder Trump’s supporters are confused when their leader can’t keep his story straight; he doesn’t know if he should brag about his racisism or his misogyny or to deny it so he does both and forces his poor benighted supporters to do the same.
