House Dems Plan to Censure Trump for 'Sh*thole' Comments

Source: The Daily Beast




Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond (D-LA) and House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) announced on Friday afternoon they will introduce a resolution to censure President Trump over his reported comments about immigrants coming from “shithole” countries. “These remarks have compelled us to prepare a resolution of censure with our colleagues next week, to condemn President Trump for his racist statements,” the Democrats said in a joint statement. “This censure resolution is important because America is a beacon of hope. We have to show the world that this president does not represent the real feelings of most of the American people which is part of the reason why he lost the popular vote” They plan to introduce the resolution after the Martin Luther King Day holiday.

7. It keeps it in the news for a few more weeks

hopefully to be caught by some more low information voters.

It also tells the rest of the world that the American people do not think that Trump actually represents them.

12. It is a start. This is a refusal to let it be normalized. It's good. Now what they need to do is

do this same thing EVERY time that something vile comes out of his mouth.

If he is a president who is censured 20 times, that is significant. Historically unprecedented, embarrassing for his legacy, indefensible for Republicans.

14. I don't know if he can be impeached for racist comments

but he damn well should be! This is conduct unbecoming a President of the United States.

15. Baby Donnie Trump Pounds His Fists and Whines to the Democrats,

"Why do we have to accept immigrants from all these s#*thole countries like Haiti and El Salvador? Why can't we accept immigrants from nice white countries like Normay (Norway)???

Nancy Pelosi steps up to the plate as the spokesperson for the congressional Democrats to answer his question.

"Norway is an advanced nation of Western Europe that has much better healthcare than we do here in the United States. For them, the USA is a s#*thole country. What happened to your campaign promise to give everyone great healthcare?"

Chuck Schumer then chimes in, "The whole matter of exactly which country is a s#*thole country is a relative one, you know..."

Babie Donnie then throws a fit and screams all the harder.

16. Censoring is RESISTANCE!

Howard Fineman wrote an article last year in the Huff Post and this is a legit form of protest that the Dems MUST do. We all should do anything and everything possible.
