“Fake News” CNN is appalled by the genuine news exposing Trump’s “sh*thole” remark during his immigration meeting. The president reportedly called Haiti, El Salvador, and several African nations “sh*thole countries.” The controversial comment has since sent shockwaves through the media and the world alike.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper decided to take the high road. He described Haiti: “Like all countries, Haiti is a collection of people — rich and poor, well-educated and not, good and bad. But I’ve never met a Haitian who isn’t strong.”
Cooper went on to remind all the bigots in America just how lucky they are to be born into a world full of opportunity. Cooper explained, “You have to be in a place where the government has often abandoned its people, where opportunities are few and where Mother Nature has punished the people far more than anyone should ever be punished.”
While reflecting on the aftermath of the catastrophic earthquakes that claimed over 200,000 lives in Haiti, an emotion Cooper told Trump: “The people of Haiti have been through more, they’ve withstood more, they’ve fought back against more injustice than our president ever has.”
Cooper then extolled the dignity of Haitians, “a dignity that many in this White House could learn from. It’s a dignity the president, with all his money and all his power, could learn from as well,” Cooper stated firmly.
