President Kirkman and Donald Trump

Yesterday, the easily offended were outraged (again) over supposed comments made by President Trump in which he described some countries as being “s***holes.”

Trump allegedly said, “Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?”

But this morning the president denied making those comments tweeting, “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”

And then, “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”

Yet in true Democrat fashion, they are using this comment as a political football. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) had some of the strongest words saying:

“’In the course of his comments, [Trump] said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist,’ Durbin told reporters on Friday. ‘I cannot believe in this history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.’”

Democrats clearly believe this is something they can use to pressure the president. While that remains to be seen I had to wonder if this was a political scandal concocted by the over imagination of some Democrats who watch too much television.

Almost this exact situation played out in an episode of ABC’s ‘Designated Survivor’ in season 2. In the episode President Kirkman (played by Kiefer Sutherland) makes an offhand remark about Americans being ‘suckers.’ A spiteful (Republican, of course) legislator then runs to the press to use it to start a scandal. It immediately takes over the airwaves and Kirkman is forced to deal with this manufactured scandal.

Check out the teaser video above for the ‘suckergate’ episode. Imagine they say ‘S***hole’ instead of ‘sucker’ and tell me it’s not almost the exact situation.

But if this is all the Democrats have then that is just plain pathetic.
