The allegation that President Trump referred to countries, such as Haiti, as ‘s***hole countries’ caught a major snag on Tuesday afternoon.
While testifying under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen gave a different account as to what was widely reported by the media.
According to a Washington Times report:
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testified under oath Tuesday that she did not hear President Trump call Haiti, El Salvador and other developing nations “sh—hole” countries in a controversial meeting last week — though she did say he used “tough language.”
Per Washington Times, Nielson is quoted as saying “specific cuss words” were being used by a “variety of members’ and she stated:
“I actually was struck more by the fact that the conversation … had gotten to a place where many people in the room were using inappropriate language in the Oval Office.”
The President has since said whatever words he used were twisted out of context and The White House said Trump “hasn’t said he didn’t use strong language.”
It has been speculated that the controversy was blown out of proportion by liberal media to hide a key indictment that was handed down from the DOJ, related to the Obama-era Uranium One Deal. You can read more on that HERE.
Did the media twist s***hole-gate into more than what it should-be to cover up something that was more newsworthy? We wouldn’t put it past them, since they seem to be so against our President and they have his opposition wrapped around their finger.
Even if the President said the exact words as reported, why hasn’t the media ALWAYS made a big deal about cuss words used in every heated political negotiation in U.S. history? This can’t be a first…
