Fox 'News' Fans React With Anti-American Glee To Fatal Mudslides In CA (Crooks & Liars link): The response from Fox News fans to the deadly flooding and mudslides in California proves that this is a network for people who hate America. Today, FoxNews.com reported:
At least 13 people were killed Tuesday after a powerful winter storm drenching Southern California sent mud, rocks and debris plummeting down wildfire-scarred hillsides and into several neighborhoods, some of which house lavish celebrity homes. Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown confirmed the deaths at a news conference Tuesday, in which he said the affected areas of the state "looked like a World War I battlefield."
Fox News also reported that more deaths are expected.That engendered hideous glee from a slew of readers who seem to have nothing but hate and hostility toward their country.
Watch the slide show of the devastation that accompanied Fox's article above and see just how full of hatred and devoid of humanity these Fox fans are.
'There's no other word but racist': Trump's global rebuke for 'shithole' remark (The Guardian link): Donald Trump has been branded a shocking and shameful racist after it was credibly reported he had described African nations, as well as Haiti and El Salvador as “shitholes” and questioned why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America. US diplomats around the world were summoned for formal reproach, amid global shock that such crude remarks could ever be made in a semi-public meeting by the president of America.
In a strongly-worded statement, the UN said it was impossible to describe his remarks as anything other than racist, while the Vatican decried Trump’s words as “particularly harsh and offensive.”
The 55-nation African Union said the remarks were “clearly racist”.
Trump initially allowed reported accounts of his comments to go unchallenged, but went into damage limitation mode on Friday, insisting he had not used derogatory words – but admitting that the language he had used at a meeting with Senators on immigration was “tough”.
But the democratic senator Dick Durbin – who was present at the meeting with Trump on Thursday – insisted that the reports were entirely accurate.
Mod: Such interesting times we live in.
