The rabid liberal media was incessant in their attacks on President Trump after he reportedly insulted entire nations of people, and the on-air reactions left ears tingling.
Reacting to a report that Trump allegedly asked why the U.S. was allowing people from “sh*thole countries” like Haiti, El Salvador and African nations to enter the country, liberals had an epic meltdown over the vulgar phrase which Trump essentially denied using.
Over at CNN, the network’s anchors and guests seemed oblivious to the hypocrisy of slamming the president allegedly uttering the words they then kept repeating on the air.
One of CNN’s resident drama queens seemed to relish the fact that he could openly swear on the air and call it news.
“The president said,” Jim Acosta reported on “The Situation Room” on Thursday, “‘Why are we having all of these people from,’ — and I apologize for using this word here, but this is a quote from the president — ‘why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?’”
A few minutes later, Acosta returned to the screen to repeat the banned word.
“This meeting behind closed doors, in which the president referred to countries like Haiti and countries in Africa as a ‘sh*thole.,” he said.
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer kept his boots on as he waded through the “sh*thole” mud, attempting to avoid flinging the phrase as freely as Acosta.
“In these words that he told these bipartisan members of Congress, senators and House members earlier today, they were meeting on immigration, ‘Why are we having all of these people from — uh, um, you get the point. S-hole countries or bleep-hole countries come here?’” Blitzer said.
In what began to look like a comedy routine, Acosta returned to wag a finger at Blitzer for sidestepping, using the opportunity to utter the phrase yet again.
“And I noticed Wolf, you hesitated to use that word, I hesitate to use it myself, as an s-hole or sh*thole is the word that the Washington Post is quoting the president saying,” Acosta said.
“Obviously that is not the kind of language you would expect to come out of the president of the United States,” he said. Not one to be shared on a news network – over and again – either.
Good thing Trump was probably not watching, as Acosta likes to think he does.
