Here’s the chronology of the Trump “shithole” comments.
Thursday: Trump makes his “shithole” comment in a meeting
Friday: The Washington Post reports the “shithole” comment and states that “White House officials did not dispute the account.” Democratic Senator Durbin, who was in the meeting, says that Trump said “shithole”. Republican Senator Scott says that Republican Senator Graham, who was in the meeting, confirmed the Washington Post account.
Trump tweets that the Democrats made it up. However, he allegedly takes a “victory lap” by phoning people to see how it played out in the press.
Republican Senator Flake, who was not in the meeting, tweets that Trump’s comments “were not “tough,” they were abhorrent and repulsive”
Sunday: Now, Senator Cotton says that Trump did not say “shithole countries”. Why didn’t he remember this on Friday?
Trump said “shithole”, lied about it and is being helped by other Republicans to make it seem like it didn’t happen. Sad!
