During a private White House meeting held on Thursday, President Donald Trump triggered liberal snowflakes everywhere when he reacted to a potential immigration deal that would provide for and protect immigrants from Haiti and Africa by saying why should the U.S. take in more immigrants from “sh*thole countries.”
Unsurprisingly, nobody was triggered more than the shameless liberals over at CNN, who spent all of Thursday night whining and ranting against the president. The Gateway Pundit reported that CNN personalities mentioned the word “sh*thole” a whopping 36 times last night, as hosts like Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon came completely unhinged.
Cooper nearly broke down in tears on his show as he accused Trump of racism.
“The president of the United States is tired of so many black people coming into this country. Tired of immigrants from Haiti and Africa being allowed in,” Cooper said, according to Real Clear Politics. “Tired of Africans and Haitians, the president said he would like to bring more people from countries like Norway. Norway, which population is overwhelmingly of Nordic descent. White people in other words.”
“Perhaps the White House feels the president’s remarks will be well-received in some parts of this country, among some parts of the president’s base, and perhaps that is true but it doesn’t make what he said any less ignorant or any less racist. Not racial. Not racially charged, racist. Let’s not kid ourselves. Let’s not pretend or dance around it. The sentiment the president expressed today is a racist sentiment,” Cooper said.

Later in the night, Lemon doubled down on this by accusing Trump of racism as well.
“The president of the United States is racist,” Lemon declared at the start of his show. “A lot of us already knew that.”
Bizpac Review reported that Lemon went on to call Trump’s comments “disgusting.”
“There’s other language I’d like to use, but we are on television,” Lemon said. “But you know what? They’re not shocking. They’re not even really surprising. Because this is who Donald Trump is. This is what he thinks.”

Once again, CNN is throwing around accusations of “racism” instead of looking deeper into what’s really happening here. Trump explained that he was not being racist, and was instead simply trying to protect Americans from immigrants that come from “high crime” countries. That sounds perfectly reasonable to us, but of course, CNN won’t be reporting on the president’s explanation at all.
