JOHN BRUMMETT: Talk of the talk

By John Brummett

First let's dismiss the issue of the language. So what if the president said "****hole" in a meeting with a few members of Congress?

Remarks seem racist as well as elitest . Of the 10 black billionaires in the world, several are from Africa. Hummmmm.

The notion that trump was referring to the economic conditions of these depri(a)ed nations, brings up an interesting parallel. Mississippi and West Virginia are the 2 poorest states in the union. McDowell County, W.V. is the poorest county in that state. Predominantly white, and heavily trump-leaning, one would think that if we applied the economics argument here, McDowell County would be considered s-hole territory by trump.

JB - to cite FDR's comment about "moral leadership foremost" to describe the office of the president is laughable coming from the man who was f**king his secretary while he was president. Moral leadership?
Elitist journalism for sure.
I won't try to interpret what Trump meant in his descriptive and accurate definition of parts of Africa and all of Haiti. If he meant we already have enough immigrants (legal and illegal) who are sucking the life out of our welfare programs, then I agree.
Unfortunately, Mr. Trump is dealing with a bunch of a**hole hypocrites.

Once again Brummett writes to his job description throwing red meat in the direction of useful idiots. Always remember if you paid Brummett enough he could make Rush Limbaugh sound like Rachael Madcow.
.
You can say John Brummett is big boned or he's a fat a$$. Both descriptions are accurate. Some people talk straight. Others are mealy-mouthed. President Trump talks straight.
.
Will somone, anyone explain why it's wrong to desire to attract immigrants that are problem solvers instead of problem makers?

drs01, it appears that like your hero Trump, you may have thought yourself to have walked across the waters of your bathtub this morning, and are now perched on your throne, whereby you feel it is your duty to make judgement on one FDR, and one JB. My question to your highness is: What have to accomplished for others that measures up to the accomplishments of either of the named people you make judgement of. Be sure not to forget to wipe!

Cotton makes my skin crawl. I also can’t believe how he seems to be squandering an expensive Harvard education and subsequent turn as a McKensie mgmt guru. He should be coaching Trump to focus on the economic impact of illegal immigration rather than calling people - and countries - names. The focus on a wall makes no sense. Mexicans and Latin Americans, by and large, are not a homeland security threat. When was the last time you read that one of them flew a plane into a building or drove a rented truck into pedestrians. Meanwhile, they represent a deficit of around $55Billion a year. But that assumes Trump’s base understands basic math concepts.

Beware of Cotton as I have constantly warned. His hunger for power and eventually the throne are neon blinking signs to anyone with the eyes to see. He will do anything to get there.

Cotton got completely skewered in the press yesterday. Jennifer Rubin, a very conservative WaPo columnist ripped him a new one. Check it out.

Is he debasing the culture or just reflecting it? What would FDR say about the morals of your boy Slick Willie?? This is just a case of the chickens coming home to roost.

JB loves to use the term.........." 2nd place president "

Seems to me the person who comes in FIRST in electoral votes becomes president.
That is the way we elect our president in the US.

If some " shxx hole' country elects their president in a manner more pleasing to arrogant JB, he should move there.
