Botswana, Ghana, Haiti, Namibia, Senegal and the African Union have all protested Mr. Trump's remarks; Botswana asked the United States "to clarify if Botswana is regarded as a 's---hole' country."

Reuben E. Brigety II, who was the United States ambassador to the African Union from 2013 to 2015, said on Monday that he had been in touch with African ministers and ambassadors throughout the weekend.

"The appropriate word to describe their reactions to the president's comments is fury," he said, "notwithstanding the fact that the president has said that he didn't say what was attributed to him. They don't believe it."

I think it's time we start being honest with the world and stop worrying about the feelings of those countries who abuse the aid we send them. How much corruption do we put up with until we say enough is enough when it comes to trying to help people survive only to have the leaders of those countries get personally rich off our charity. The reason people want out of those countries is they are --------- and its their leaders that made them that way and sometimes with the help of our tax dollars

1) Donald Trump is not honest

2) You insult someone's home, they take offense.

Opinions about how to react to what was said aside, here is another shining example of something that has no racist connotations being called racists based solely on the fact that minorities of America are the majority of the offended country. Calling a country a -------- has nothing to do with skin color. Where is the article that actually uses logic that states leaders of -------- countries are being racist by acting as victims?

Oh, and btw, since so many people got butthurt over this, -------- is an opinion. I have a nice 1800 sq ft townhome that I consider to be really nice. It has everything I need and I've put a lot into it. It has a lot of electronics since I'm an IT guy and I've been blessed enough to have some money to do a lot of good things to it.

Now, if Trump comes to my home and compares it to his, mine is a --------. I don't need to argue semantics because it wouldn't hurt my feelings. It's the truth in comparison. Just like, compared to America, many other countries are --------s. Last time I checked, there isn't an article every time another countries call us ------- elitists and exceptionalists, or the myriad of insults that are thrown at us all the time. In fact, when other countries do that, the Liberal media outlets actually celebrate it and say how true it is

All this has done is now cause our world leaders to argue over what someone said instead of spending their time taking action to better themselves so they aren't -------- countries. Or, to be PC, so they aren't "economically-challenged but not in derogatory sense".

What you ignorant righties call PC is what the rest of the world calls common courtesy.

Being an ------- isn't honesty its ---------

You liberals really do have a problem with the truth.

Most of those countries have no redeeming value to the world, other than death and violence. They are a blackhole money pit and always sitting with their hand out to the rest of the civilized world, yet they wont hold to normal human rights practices.

I say call it like it is. They are ---------. And if they are offended, so what?

You have a real problem with the truth, pfc. boazo.

It wasn't the countries insulted, but the people from those countries who were said to have no redeeming value.

Just because of the countries of their birth or ancestry.

"They are ---------."

Your ancestors came from those very s***holes.

So I can see why you would believe, like President IQ45, that you have no redeeming value.

Enough for you to be included as a descendant of a s***hole country and, thus, with no redeeming values.

"...me and you are cousin's..."

Unlikely.

I am not as illiterate and English-challenged as you.

"I got the good looks and you got the small penis.."

Good looks and a small penis go hand-in-hand. Part of nature's balancing act.

Thanks for letting us know.

You believe that someone with an IQ of 45 is smart.

You're hardly the best judge of another's intelligence.

#12 | Posted by Hans at 2018-01-18 01:34 PM | Reply

IQ is a relative number. An IQ of 100 is the median IQ for the group of people who took the test. The numbers are set by standard deviations within the tested group. Comparing IQ to a different group who took a different test is meaningless. An IQ number by itself is meaningless except as a comparison to other members of the tested group.

If you tested 3 people on one test and 3 other people on a different test The 2nd smartest of the 1st 3 would score an IQ of 100 and so would the second smartest of the 2nd 3 but there is no way to know which one is smarter than the other.

IQ tests only start to have value when large numbers of subjects have taken the same test.

It is sad that you feel the need to validate yourself by claiming non-African ancestry.

It doesn't matter whether you believe in religion or science. Every version of world history says we all come from a common ancestor.

There is only one human species.

Does anyone else find it ironic that the Drumpf supporters who've spent the last 2 years whining about being "left behind" and who have been touting the election victory as some sort of redemption for being slighted by elitist liberals and mean Democrats are now defending their guy calling entire nations, "----holes?" These are the same people who took umbrage to the term, "Deplorables."

I, for one, don't want some douchebag talking s--- about entire countries in my name. He allegedly represents ALL of us Americans, and yet 60% of the people he "represents" want him out because, among dozens of other reasons, his mouth is writing checks his ass can't cash.

"You liberals really do have a problem with the truth."

If you're going to insist on calling these people liberals, could you at least put the word "phony" in front of it?

Ditto for those who criticize "conservatives".

Ta muchly.
