    Everybody but Boxy freely knows and admits he's racist. It's not really something worth getting in a big debate over. Between his black housing lawsuit scandal, Central Park 5 open letter, Birtherism movement, and continued remarks about Latin Americans, it's patently obvious that he's racist. Surely this isn't something that just now occurred to you.

    I don't think he ever said "Africa is a shithole." Seems like the conversation was about Africa and he said "why do we accept citizens from shithole countries?" or something to that effect. In light of some of our lottery based immigration systems it's a good question.

    LOL @ this American versus Canadian debate. Toronto is the most American city outside of America. American values are basically Torontonian values. People who are ignorant of the world around them will hold the same stupid beliefs whether from Toronto or the States. Those who are educated will not.

    If you go to a city like Sudbury or Winnipeg, where 90% of the poor and troublemakers are Natives instead of blacks or white trash...now THAT is a quintessential Canadian city and culture.

    2 GOP senators "don't recall" him saying it now. Lol the conversation was yesterday, what you can't fucking clearly remember? If you have balls and he didn't say it, then fucking say "he didn't say that." I don't recall! Maybe? Details are hazy, but I don't recall. Maybe the president says so many crass things that they can't commit them all to memory, even in a span of 48 hours.

    They should definitely be pressed on that.

    It's the weakest denial possible in the English language. Kinda seems like he pressured the Republican senators to deny it on his behalf after it leaked to the media, and these were the only two spineless pricks who would acquiesce, but they decided to couch it in the most milquetoast terms possible just in case someone else tape recorded it and they need to backtrack later.

    Other possible explanations:

    - I zone out when the president speaks, so I literally don't recall him saying anything.
    - My job is so depressing that I drank myself into a stupor after the president arbitrarily shot down my months of bipartisan work, and therefore I don't recall the events of yesterday.
    - I am experiencing a dissociative fugue and do not recall my name or occupation. Where am I?

    Why do you always go for the argumentum ad populum? Almost half the world believes Muhammad, a documented pedophile and cruel warlord, is the most moral man to have ever lived. Must be true!

    Everybody has their tipping point. Trump's actions that you listed could be nothing more than his capitalist goal of extracting as much profits as possible (housing - his and other landlord's beliefs at the time that African-Americans don't make good tenants) or developing his brand and carving out a niche (Birtherism). You can despise the victimhood of African-American culture without it having anything to do with skin tone or facial features. But there's no reason to denigrate Africa, a place of varied cultures and socioeconomic standing (though all lower than the U.S.), unless you're specifically racist.

    Do facts ever enter the equation for you, or are all your decisions based on race?
    Nowhere did I say calling Haiti a shithole is racist. The racism is in Trump's message that people from black countries bad (even though many of them are highly educated professionals) and people from white countries like Norway good.

    Please try and read, next time.

    I'm not even offended. It was expected from Trump.

    I just enjoy posting stuff exposing the stupidity of people conned by an obvious con man.

    The Rogers Centre is a shithole in comparison to other MLB ballparks.

    So what's the story now... Donald Trump had an affair with Stormy Daniels in 2006 and pays her $130,000 for her silence on the matter?

    Yep that's the latest in the Trump reality show.
