Joining in a chorus of people, Republicans and Democrats alike, former CIA Director John Brennan blasted Donald Trump over his remarks earlier in which the former reality show star attacked immigrants from what he described as ‘shithole countries.’
“Lady Liberty, our founding fathers, and generations of right-thinking Americans are all weeping tonight over the atrocious comments attributed to Donald Trump, who continues to demonstrate daily that he is a deeply flawed person,” he tweeted Thursday evening.

Trump was speaking with lawmakers in the Oval Office when they floated the idea of restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump asked, referencing Africa and Haiti. Instead, Trump said that we should bring in more immigrants from places like Norway.
Tomorrow is the anniversary of the 2010 earthquake that hit Haiti, leaving 230,000 people dead.
Just a reminder (in light of today’s ‘shithole’ comments by President Trump): Tomorrow is the 8th anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti which killed thousands of people.

3 million people were affected by the earthquake. Great timing you have there, Mr. Trump. Trump has quite a history of making racially charged remarks. He even defended the Nazis in Charlottesville who marched in his name while carrying Tiki torches by blaming ‘both sides’ after an anti-racist protester was killed. Last month, Trump reportedly said that immigrants from Haiti “all have AIDS.” We see a pattern here.
