“Tricky Dick” Durbin

From the link:

Quote:We’ll get back to that in a second. First, you know, Dick Durbin has said some colorful things himself. In 2005, he compared U.S. troops to Nazis, remarks that he was forced to apologize for on the Senate floor (via WaPo):

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism.

Durbin, the Democratic whip, acknowledged that "more than most people, a senator lives by his words" but that "occasionally words will fail us and occasionally we will fail words." Choking up, he said: "Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies."


Tricky Tricky Dick.

Nice apology. That's all we're asking from Trump too - glad you get it.

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!

So you prove Trump knows how to lie. We already know that. What's your point?

That was no apology....

"Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies."

He did not say he was regretful for saying what he said, only that "some" felt it crossed the line.

In that quote nowhere did he say he had a "regretful acknowledgment of saying what he said"

President Trump should never have trusted Tricky Dick and he should take a long hard look at Graham. He was right to say "no trust". He should not have left it up to them.

Where did he say he was sorry for what he said.... He said, "Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies.""

That's not saying he was wrong, it's saying "he's sorry" that "some people" believe "some thing"

Durbin called american heros "Nazis"
Hillary called african american boys "Super Predators"
Pelosi called Stoyer, Graham, and crew "5 white guys"

Trump call a location on earth that is a shithole, a shithole.

See the difference now? Or do I need to bring in more leftist racist people for you to see the difference.

There is nothing wrong with the President of the United States saying he didn’t want black and brown people immigrants from countries he referred to as ”shitholes” while asking why more people aren’t coming from a country known for being home to white people. Nothing at all. Nothing wrong with him lying and saying he didn’t say it either.

What makes me laugh is that now there are Haitians who LEFT their country for the US and now are aghast because Trump called their country what they probably called it themselves. They're here for a reason, que no?

This worries me more than him calling shiteholes, shiteholes. Durbin and Graham are worms.

How many people leave their homes for better opportunities. Is your home a shirt hole? How about the 600,000 Americans living aboard. You leave for better opportunities. It was a stupid comment and it was racist.


Why not more from Norway? It actually surprises me you guys are even trying to defend it. It also makes me wonder how this guy talks when it’s only Republicans.

He’s just not leadership material. Period
