Sarah Sanders speaks for America on S**tholegate: ‘We’ve wasted five days fighting over one word’

Are you tired of “sh*tholegate” yet? You’re far from alone, and Sarah Sanders has got your back.

Ever since President Trump trumped Lindsey Graham’s 2013 “hellhole” remark by allegedly characterizing certain key Carnival Cruise destinations like Haiti, El Salvadore, and some African nations as “sh*tholes,” the press has been nothing short of apoplectic.

Since that ill-fated remark, it’s been six straight days of high-horse moralizing, virtue signalling, hand-wringing, and bed wetting from politicians, celebrities, and talking heads eager for America to know just how “morally superior” they are compared to that dastardly man in the White House who dared to say something out loud that everyone knows deep down is true, even if they refuse to admit it.

So when a reporter asked White House Press Secretary about the president’s comment during Tuesday’s press briefing, she was quick to echo what’s surely the sentiments of a majority of Americans.

“In that meeting, the president reportedly used a vulgarity,” asked the reporter. “The White House has said he did not use that specific word. The president has said that as well but a number of people in the administration said he used tough language, rough language, strong language – can you clear up what the president did say?”

“Look, I wasn’t in that room so I can only go off the individuals who were,” said Sanders. “They said that term wasn’t used but tough language was. No one will pretend like the president is always politically correct. He isn’t. I think that’s one of the reasons the American people love him, one of the reasons he won and is in the Oval Office today. He isn’t a scripted robot. He’s somebody who tells things like they are sometimes, and sometimes he does use tough language.”

“The point he’s trying to make, the point that the entire conversation frankly should be focused on, is the issue at hand,” continued Sanders. “We’ve wasted five days fighting over one word when we should be fighting over the people that are involved in the DACA program. If Democrats really want to protect these individuals, that’s who they should be fighting for and that’s what they should be fighting about, is figuring out a permanent solution the DACA. Not a quick fix. Figuring out how to secure the border and increase border security. Figuring out how to end chain migration. How to end the Visa lottery situation. They’re wasting time and complaining the president isn’t doing enough when he is the only one really engaging in this process, and hopefully they’ll get on board, get out of the way, and actually start doing their job.”

Don’t expect the press to stop wasting time anytime soon. After all, that’s one thing they’re experts at!
