Jimmy Kimmel and more late night hosts went after Donald Trump for his horrific comment about ‘s***hole countries’ in Africa.
UPDATE: the controversy continues. President Trump denies the remarks about Haiti and other “sh*thole” countries, saying in a tweet that he, “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!” Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) has knocked down Trump’s denial. “It’s not true. He said those hateful things, and he said them repeatedly.”
Other celebrities including John Legend, 39, have also weighed in on Trump’s comment. “The president is a racist. He has been for his entire public life. If you vote(d) for him, you do so because of that or despite that. We need a multi-racial anti-racist coalition to defeat him and try to heal our nation,” John said angrily on Twitter. Chelsea Clinton, 37, also responded to Trump’s comment with, “Mr. President, immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and the 53 countries in Africa likely helped build your buildings. They’ve certainly helped our country. cc @POTUS.”
Although President Trump’s comment is not surprising, it has offended a lot of people. The only silver lining in this situation is that the American people are not letting him off the hook! We’re proud of everyone who is using their voice to address his awful comment!
