Two GOP senators say they don't recall Trump's 'sh**hole' comment at White House meeting

Two Republican senators who hastily joined an immigration meeting at the White House this week said Friday they do not recall President Trump using vulgar language to describe countries in Africa and elsewhere.

ut Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Sen. Davild Perdue (R-Ga.) issued a joint statement Friday suggesting otherwise.

“We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically,” Cotton and Perdue said. “But what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest.”

Looks like a good possibility.

There is a BIG imbalance in immigration. And we know why that is.

The Dems are desperate to gin up racial unrest on Trump’s watch and so I can believe the MSM and ‘rats would just make that up. But Trump hasn’t said anything; of course if he did they’d accuse him of being a liar so maybe he’s not taking the bait. Or maybe he said it, but the “character” his enemies includes a smoking crater where their conscience was supposed to be.

Maybe little Dick Durbin WANTED to hear “sh*thole” so the voices in his head obliged him. That happens a lot to loony toons.

I’m glad to see you posted this. I was going to. So now we have:

Tom Cotton - Doesn’t recall
Perdue - Doesn’t recall
Durbin - Saying he said it
Lindsey Graham - Told Senator Tim Scott he said it

The interesting thing is that Lindsey Graham is friends with Trump now. He hasn’t said a word publicly - not sure that he’d lie to Scott.

Watching Cnn a bit last night...made me sick. More so than usual. Trump hates black people...hey if these people love people from ms13 and haiti so much why doesn’t anderson cooper take a few to live in his house?

Give them 3 meals a day, pay for healthcare give them 1200 a month each a for life.

The Dims want to get blacks wee wee’d up because if they GOTV in Michigan and PA it will be much harder for POTUS to get reelected.

Pretty lukewarm defense of the president. Durbin said he did, Trump says he didn't, these two aren't sure.

Just ask them at what point did Trump say it. Bottom line is the media said they received the report from someone who heard it from someone in the meeting. That’s not considered corroboration for validating a story.

And so the truth comes out. Truth is, DURBIN made up ‘sh!thole’ and next will say, well he basically said that. Oh, so YOU Senator, are the one that says they are sh!tholes?

Good news here is there will be no daca deal. Durbin chose politics over the daca “kids”. Anyone in management has seen this happen before by some weasel who leaves a meeting and then starts emailing or saying crap. You never meet with the weasel again. In March daca protection runs out and gov will start deporting these in normal flow of business.

He tweeted that used very strong language but NOT THOSE WORDS. And that next time he’ll have to record it.

I could give a s**t if he said it or not. I’m sick and tired of politically correct presidents. Good to have a man of the people sitting in the Oval Office. I trust a man or woman that say what they mean and mean what they say.

There’s a huge imbalance in the Senate.
There are only 5 Senators who side with the citizens and the rule of law.
Cotton, Perdue, Grassley, Paul and Cruz.
The rest work for the Cheap Labor Express.

Dems desperate to gin up anything.

They act pure when in fact their Female messiah was overheard to say F ing Jews, but nary a word

Also this could have been an after the meeting walk away someone, not Trump , uses the S Hole wording and they glam on to attributing it to him....

I don’t doubt for one minute that these politicians use all types of slurs etc when
describing the people they represent, and then when expedient, try to turn the tables of someone else for their own gain.

Truth be known in many communities even the people legally here from those countries don’t want to level of people who come for freebies to be given a free ride.
