Did Trump Really Say That? Should we Impeach him or really, does it Matter?

by Phil Erwin

OMG!! Did you hear what the President just said?!?? OMG, OMG, let’s impeach him!!!

So, I imagine, went the tweets of reporters, one to another, when word leaked out about “The Word!” supposedly used by President Trump to describe a certain, shall we say, class of country while in the midst of White House discussions regarding what to do about our, shall we say, troubled immigration system.

In case you haven’t heard (and frankly, I doubt there’s anyone in this smartphone-connected world that hasn’t heard): The President supposedly characterized some of the globe’s more, shall we say, troubled nations as “S***hole” countries.

Did he really say that? I don’t know. And neither do you, unless you were there. Sure, the Media are all over the story, opining ad naseum as though they were there. And Senator Durban is publicly insisting that that was, in fact, precisely what the President said. But consider this: Two other Senators in the room did not hear the (supposedly oft-repeated) pejorative; and Durban himself gave an interview right outside the meeting room where he seemed hopeful that progress on immigration had been made, but was oddly silent about the President’s “vile, hate-filled” remark – a horrified characterization he failed to mention until he checked in with the Democrat pantheon and discovered he was supposed to be infuriated.

So do I believe Durban?  Nope. Seems he’s got a penchant for making these sorts of unconfirmed, incendiary charges after he’s scoped out the political advantages to be had. Truthfully, I’ve reached the point where I don’t believe anything that any Democrat says, vis-a-vis the President, because they’re so deep in the throes of Trump Derangement Syndrome, I’m pretty sure their hold on reality is WAY thinner than just tenuous. I think Democrats, including all their myriad mouthpieces in the so-called “mainstream Media” [MSM], have lost any ability to fairly, reasonably and constructively engage in political analysis and debate.

What Democrats have to say since Trump’s election has been worth about as much as the government bonds issued by those “S***hole” countries.

But the question we should be asking is not whether Trump really said that.

The question we should be asking is: Why should we care?

Time was when this kind of “coarse” language, common perhaps among stevedores and army sergeants, was absolutely verbotten in “civilized” conversation. But that was when civilized conversation happened in “parlours” over afternoon tea, and women were still the “fairer sex,” needing protection from the coarseness of a man’s world.

Now you can troll the Internet for mere seconds and find women all over the world whose habitual language makes the President’s supposed remark seem positively genteel.  (Oh, wait…  Most of those women are actually in Holllywood!)

I know there’s a knee-jerk tendency to think, Of course we should care, he’s the President, he can’t talk like that! But knee-jerks aside, let’s take a moment to consider what it actually says that this is what the MSM focuses on. Not the imminents dangers posed by a nuclear North Korea, or the fact that half of our military aircraft can’t fly, or that China is constructing new military islands smack in the middle of international shipping lanes. Not the ever-growing threats that cyber-crime poses to our cyber-connected way of life. Certainly not good news, like the fact that tax cuts are raising wages without any government coercion.

What the MSM considers hyper-important is that the President used a bad word. Or to be more precise: That they can claim his use of that word “proves” he’s a RACIST!

Of course, it does no such thing. It simply indicates that Trump has a negative view of some of the countries in the world, which he might have more accurately characterized as having “S***hole” governments.

But what the President did NOT say — even in Dick Durban’s wildest, most incendiary hallucination — was, “Why do we want more of those “S***hole” people?”  

Yet, that is precisely what the MSM wants you to believe that he said. Or at least, that that’s what he meant.

The sad truth that Trump’s (presumed) remark points to is that some world governments fail to educate their people, modernize their infrastructures, supercharge their economies and uphold human rights. Such nations instead tend to be rife with corruption, illiteracy, crime, violence, substance abuse. They’re sometimes called  “banana republics.” And the people in such countries think of their governments and laws as the problem. Not the solution.

Elsewise, why would they so often revolt against their own governments, or otherwise be so desperate to leave?

And why should we import people willy-nilly from such countries? What assurance do we have that they won’t arrive with a built-in hostility toward our government, and our laws?

What do we achieve by importing illiteracy, poverty, crime, violence, substance abuse and a disregard for governments and laws from countries where these things are commonplace, are simple facts-of-life? Don’t we already have enough of these problems? Why import more of them?

Liberals don’t have an answer to that. So instead, what they do is insist that anyone who doesn’t support such immigration leniency must, ipso facto, be a RACIST!  because the people in such lands are generally “people of color!”

Such knee-jerking prevents any real political debate from taking place. Which is one reason why our government generally seems brain-dead and useless.

Which is why so many Democrats in the “rust-belt” states held their breath and voted for Donald Trump.

It’s also one reason Democrat politicians are so stunned to see the Trump Administration actually managing to get things done! It’s been so long since Democrats have actually participated in reasonable political analysis and good-faith-compromise governing, they’re clueless about how to do it.

And their only debate tool is the ad hominem argument: Trump is a racist! A sexist! A misogynist! A homophobe! A xenophobe!

And by extension, so are all Republicans. (They must be because they voted for him!)

Of course, what Liberals really mean to say with their constant rain of pejoratives is: You’re not dong things MY way! I’m not getting what I want! Waaahhh!!! Waaahhh!!!

So much for reasonable, logical, productive political discourse.

I’m tempted to say that all of the so-called “journalists” screaming about Trump’s (alleged) coarse language are really nothing more than S***hole Liberals acting out on S***hole Liberal Media.

I challenge them to start proving otherwise.
