That is an infamous video, of course, but that comments on that particular version of it on t3h y00t00bz are epic:

me: gives stupid speech
interviewer: i just asked you for your name.

Moggy G2 Aww... she tried to use her brain!

Az211What is she talking about? Suchas is a beautiful place, and has a great education system. I'm triggered.

Joe D1 Well, she can always do porn.


Needed that laugh.

Your observation doesn't make what Trump said false.

Stop making me defend him.

That's just an aside. But how is that a reason to cancel his planned trip to London, whether he liked that deal or not?

Sounds like he's looking for an excuse.



Anyway, not really related but I like the way the new embassy looks.

Really, the whole "thing" was before "I'm Not Thatcher but it's My Time" decided to fuck up a "sure thing" election to the extent Atlanta and Hillary sent her condolences, when the Conservatives Tories had a comfortable majority, enough Members of Parliament bitched about Trump visiting, he basically responded with a "'Fuck me?!' NO! Fuck you!"

Months of other shenanigans transpired, but now, after "I'm Not Thatcher" damaged herself with her vibrator but, fortunately for her, her opposition is led by a Certifiable Racist Loon that Makes Cruz Seem "Tolerant," he decided to revisit the issue everyone forgot.

Okay, that is a bit harsh. Trump has to visit the colonies [Stop that!--Ed.] . . . er . . . Britland at some point. This upsets pretty much all of Labour and makes much of the Conservatives "uncomfortable." Trump reminds them of their greatest fear: the UK has become the US's "Little Brother." Seriously. Comedians excoriated the Most Popular PM Until Tony Blair for being George the Younger's "lap dog."

In the rain.

It is obviously a poor country with profound problems. Whether referring to is as a shithole is appropriate is questionable at best. One can read a whole bunch into that w/r/t race and historical context, but one can also write it off as merely Trump being a the rude asshole some people know and love. So...

It is more the "we don't want those people here" part that is the problem. Countries don't immigrate. People immigrate, and to judge those people based on where they are from is bullshit.

It practice, it is far easier to do it that way though. I think it has largely to do with the objective of immigration. But that is another story.

You probably could come up with an objective measure of "shitholeness". Absent a blue ribbon government panel I would suggest that some amalgam of tourism $ and net immigration could be tumbled to arrive at something with face validity, at least.

Anyone know of anyone who ever vacationed in Haiti?

Again, it isn't an issue of how nice Haiti is. It is an issue of how that is expressed.

CL00: People from countries that are nice to live in aren't itching to emigrate.

That said, I have no problem with being selective about who we let in.

Even in the supposedly wide open old days, the point of landing on Ellis Island instead of the West Side docks was to intercept and immediately deport on the same boat going back those deemed undesirables. That included pregnant women.
