Subject: BS: Foul Mouthed trump!
From: Bonzo3legs
Date: 12 Jan 18 - 03:11 AM

From the BBC
US President Donald Trump has reportedly lashed out at immigrants in a foul-mouthed Oval Office outburst.
"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Mr Trump asked lawmakers on Thursday, in remarks widely reported by US media.
The remark, made during talks on an immigration deal, was apparently in reference to people from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
The White House made no attempt to deny the comment.

Absolutely disgraceful.

Mr Trump's question answers itself. If your country were not a shithole, why would you leave -- let alone emigrate to a crazy, mixed-up political experiment like the United States of America?

Most days, I look out my window to view the snowy landscape and send up a little prayer of thanks that my father did not get the job he interviewed for at Columbia University in 1952, thus ensuring that my bothers and I would be born in boring old Ottawa, the city where they roll up the sidewalks at sunset. Consequently, I get to read about the shenanigans south of the border with mild interest, not lurching dread.

I imagine that many Norwegians feel something similar.

It's a national disgrace that this racist, mysogynist xenophobe ever got within sniffing distance of a major party's nomination, Senoufou.

But fair is fair; a majority of the electorate voted against him. Recently his approval rating has been around 40%, a historic low for a first year president.

And that's before Fire and Fury came out with Bannon's devastating portrait of him and his out-of-control staff, and the current questioning of his mental fitness at press conferences, and this most recent episode.

On the other hand, it's not exactly a stirring defense to say that "only" forty percent approve, I know.

I'm thinking of Robert Mugabe. He was barely lucid towards the end, but folk were loath to oust him - it's not an easy thing to tackle.
I suppose it would need a medical and psychological assessment.
And it seems Trump has moments of normality; he could refuse to be assessed.

I'm of two minds about the impeachment of Trump: He is the true face of the movement and seems to go out of his way to make it repulsive. I am sure he is not the only anti-immigration pol to use that expression, but he IS the only one who will hang it out there for all to see.

At the same time, he is politically incompetent, and he continues to polarize his party.

I'm afraid one reason for his declining popularity is the realization by his supporters that he is unable to do the job they elected him to do. I don't think Vice-President Pence is any political wizard, but the Republicans can dress him up, feed him his lines, and he'll do as he's told.

A disruptive political doofus wrapped in a disgusting personality at the head of the party you despise--not all bad.

On the other hand . . . . . . there's his ideology, unspeakable cruelty, and all that nuclear holocaust business.

She was witty and feisty. Toward the end of her career her mind betrayed her. I will not diagnose but we all know of the looming threat to the elderly. Helen suddenly began uttering invectives and anti semetic slurs. She was quickly and respectfully swept away.

Most of us see the tongue and groove fit of Trump's dementia and racism with the ambitions of the Neo Nazi movement.

I don't know, Donuel. Trump and I were both born on June 14, 1946, so I'm not a fan of the senilty explanation (or of astrology).

As far as I can tell, he's never used a filter, and since he's become the most powerful man in the world, why start now? His interpretation of reality as his own reality show isn't necessarily a sign of stupidity. It's worked pretty well up until quite recently.

I don't know about right-wing Republicans looking forward to 7 more years of pratfalls and pies in the face, either. After all, it was no flaming liberal who started this thread.

If I were a member of the Freedom Caucus and could replace him with Pence by snapping my fingers, I'd do it like THAT!

"I think many here in UK are very much afraid of what Trump might provoke regarding starting wars and alienating other nations."

Over here, too.

I'm afraid, though, that replacing him with someone less foul-mouthed and belligerent might not necessarily work.

As a Republican, George W. Bush was a centrist. His family did not endorse Trump and probably didn't vote for him. But by the time he was as deep in his term as Trump is now, he and his crew had spent months laying the groundwork for the Iraq invasion. (Which Clinton, Trump's opponent, and a rather hawkish Secretary of State herself, initially supported.) So Bush may have actually been more dangerous in his first year than Trump has been, despite his mouth. Let's hope so. Trump would have to go some to accomplish as much harm as Bush eventually did, but he's certainly capable.

I'm afraid, and I apologize for it, that the US threats to global security can't be resolved by getting rid of the obvious rotten apples.

Those are unfortunate words, Senoufou. Most Americans were NEVER delighted Trump was elected.

The "forty percent" that voted for him was actually a smaller number than it sounds like, given the small percentage of eligible to vote Americans that make it to the polls.

I cannot see what the gripe is.His choice of words may not sit well, but there is zero confusion as to the countries he was referring to.
A more pertinent area to pick on is why these countries are so dysfunctional. It is not as though Uncle Sam has clean hands when it comes to neocolonialism and military adventurism. Libya has been transformed into a basket case and US troops are still scattered over swathes of Africa. Zimbabwe and Nigeria to name but two, are hardly bastions of democracy. Colonialism also created chaos with many artificial boundaries and the post colonial history added additional layers of suffering. The Congo, Biafran War and the abrupt withdrawal of Portugal out of Africa caused innumerable deaths. Wherever oil has been found the revenues have largely been diverted to the elite and the lot of the common man deteriorated.
Having worked all over Africa for over 30 years I can safely say that when compared to the West many of these places are shitholes. But
for the most part it was the West that created them and policies of the west do little to change this status quo.
Shithole may not be the nicest word in the dictionary but if you want to see humanity on the lowest levels of existence with starvation, disease, substandard housing and all the other negatives that this situation brings, then what other word exists to come even close to describing the situation.
It is pretty clear to me why such people want to flock to the land of milk and honey. Would you want to raise your kids in such deprivation if you had the chance to escape?
From the days of the Vietnamese boat people of the early 70's to the present North African Boat people, they all have one aim: To escape the conditions that We, the wesr, largely created.

Iains, Trump has been especially criticized for his remark not just because it was foul language, but because it referred to Haiti and African nations in a policy discussion with legislators about immigration--in which he also voiced a preference for immigants from predominantly white Norway(!).

If you feel that even encouraging immigration from these countries to the US is a woefully inadequate remedy for the damage its neocolonialism has caused, and that those who profited from it should take commensurate steps to repair that damage, I agree, but I doubt that Trump or his supporters would.

Ah Iains, like you I've travelled to many African countries (mainly in the West of the continent though) and while I agree that European colonisation has helped itself to their resources, it has also set up many beneficial infrastructures: railways, roads, the Port at Abidjan (designed, built and financed by the French), clinics, schools etc. There have been benefits as well.

And from my and my husband's viewpoint, the corruption BY AFRICANS has been appalling. Once countries were granted their independence, the indigenous politicians promptly set out to milk the place dry. Many of them don't even live in their own 'shit-holes' but have decamped to Europe, while keeping their fingers in the pie back home. They ignore and don't even care about the dreadful poverty they perpetrate. As long as they and their families are rich and prosperous, they're laughing.

There are faults on many sides, and yes, these places ARE shitholes. But is it wise or diplomatic for a Head of State to actually make such an insulting remark in public? Does it not shut off any possibilities for discussion, negotiation or mutual understanding? It's childish, rude and dangerous.
Please don't imagine for one moment that I can't sympathise with the poor refugees and boat people who, as you say, are desperate enough to risk their lives in flimsy boats to get to the Promised Land. It says it all about the conditions at home. I have a whole family in Ivory Coast under my and my sister's protection and help. But the answer is not to insult them. They need their evil blood-sucking ministers ousting and some kind of moral government set in place. They need Aid, and support.
Trump is a fool, a bigot, a racist, a misogynist and a dangerous loose cannon.

Jackaroodave. A preferaece for people from Norway is hardly racist. The average Norweigian is highly educated, speaks english better than most englishment and requires no learning curve to be a useful member of society. The converse side of the coin, if dealing in generalities, is that the average African immigrant(through no fault of his own) is generally poorly educated, may have medical issues,and will require a closer security vetting. It will also take longer for integration to occur. Sweeping generalities I know but that is the underlying reality.
    Attempts to cure the problems in the home countries would be a more beneficial longterm solution, but the will is not there.
    Controversy still rages over the death of UN secretary general Dag Hammarskjöld in Africa and who engineered the coup against Patrice Lumumba leader of the DRC(CIA, MI6 et al.) This is a country still being raped of it's resources. 60% of world cobalt production is from the Congo. Without it phones or electric cars dramatically curtailed.
A percentage of the mining involves the use of children that apparently is conveniently overlooked by the main users. Despite nominal Independence the major powers are still manoeuvering in many countries raping their natural resources.
We like all the latest toys but seem unwilling to accept the human cost involved in their manufacture. The ethics has to move far far beyond fair trade coffee.

Yeah, like the Norwegians are all lining up to come over here to escape socialized medicine.

I actually knew a number of African immigrants my Japanese wife studied ESL with in Portland, Maine. As a group they were quite successful in joining and contributing to our city, as citizens, entrepreneurs, community leaders.

Of course simply by getting over here, in spite of hellish conditions and terrific obstacles, they had to be a talented and persevering bunch. Their futures seem much brighter than those of the white working class whose traditional jobs have headed south and abroad.

A 30 year career in Africa. Well... You are enlightened now.

I get the impression they are raping Africa a bit more humanely than we did but I can not be sure. Rape is still rape.

Mining and oil production is crude. No pun intended. The poor scrape for Coltan with their fingernails for borderline subsistence. This is what America does for cheap candy crush machines.

When I was at all boys grammar school 45 years ago we had a rich vocabulary of words
which have these days been quite rightly banished from enlightened discourse...

In some ways it's a bit of a shame because some of those words belonged to a tradition of inventive abuse;
..and can still raise an involuntary transgressive nostalgic chuckle when heard in ancient British TV shows and movies...

Maybe Trump is the last man alive we might ever hear saying such words in public..!!!???

Boris Johnson can be relied on for lesser non-crude archaic posh public schoolboy insults,
but Trump is the man we can hope might entertain and thrill with outbursts of long forbidden abusive sweary language...???

Referring to African nations as "Shitholes" is not only racist but mean-spirited. The utter disdain he shows for anyone who is not in his millionaire's club is appalling. And of course the 30% of working class voters who supported him deserve to be hung out to dry.

The damage this deranged President has and will cause will live on far beyond his one term presidency.

Not just from the Brit perspective..... They'd have an even better chance if they ran Roy Moore with him as VP.
