"Shithole Countries" Part IV: Mia Love Admits Trump's Remarks Were Racist

It took a few days, but the Utah Representative finally succumbed to the reality Trump's Africa, El Salvador and Haiti comments were racist (and from the mouth of a racist).

Have you heard anything for Mitch McConnell? 

Watch and listen to Paul Ryan, House Speaker and third in ascendancy to the US Presidency, fold up like a guilty child a, lower his head away from the cameras and struggle through comments about Trump's racist remarks. Ryan is a full grown man, elected officials paid over $225,000 via tax dollars and he has children.  

The GOP is a shameful embarrassment to the United States.

Rep. Mia Love Hesitantly Admits Trump's Africa 'Sh*thole' Slur Is 'Racist'

Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah on Sunday accused Donald Trump of making "racist" remarks about Haiti and African countries. In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Love sidestepped the fact that Republican lawmakers had yet to forcefully condemn Trump for reportedly saying that African countries were a "shithole" and immigrants from Haiti did not deserve…

The Father of Modern Conservatism????

The republican affinity for overuse of the only president they seem to hold in high esteem draw attention; and it should.  It is amazing the shallowness of the GOP and their politicians. Unfortunately, that same level of shallowness spreads to the GOP human constituency. Their corporate constituency does not care as it is not a living being, despite Mitt Romney's, "Corporations are people my friend".  Not quite Romney, not quite.

I among with thousand have written about Ronald Reagan. with the utmost respect for his son Ron Reagan we have to address the 'false prophet'.  In reality, Ronald Reagan made the nation 'feel good' coming out of the Carter Years. We suffered through over one full year of hostage taking by the Iranians and the Cold War was as cold as Antarctica and life was not perceived as good.  Data points (see below) to a different reality for the Reagan Years, but who looks at data.

I have linked below a couple of a long pieces (sorry about length) that I PC'd a over one year ago (posted here at a later date). The first edition was trimmed to a somewhat manageable level.  The video below should be viewed before the lengthy articles. One article has a damaged graphic, please excuse.

GOP mantra is one thing, reality and the dangers of ignoring reality spells doom. 

Yet, another point. If Ronald Reagan is the very best the GOP has to point to as a leadership model, the party has to rely on dirty tricks (voter suppression), lies, and cable and radio media public relations.
