Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper impact Trump’s ‘s–thole’ comments

CNN hosts Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper bashed President Trump’s reported “shithole countries” critique as “racist” on Thursday night.

Lemon didn’t mince his difference when he non-stop his show and said, “This is CNN tonight. we am Don Lemon. The boss of the United States is racist. A lot of us already knew that.”

Trump questioned because immigrants from “s—hole countries” being allowed into the U.S. and pronounced some-more people from countries like Norway should be brought in, according to a Washington Post report.

Lemon, who went on to call Trump’s comments “disgusting,” said, “There’s other denunciation I’d like to use, but we are on television. But you know what? They’re not shocking. They’re not even really surprising. Because this is who Donald Trump is.”

Cooper echoed Lemon’s statements and said, “The President of the United States is sleepy of so many black people coming to into this country. Tired of immigrants from Haiti and Africa being allowed in.”

“Let’s not child ourselves. Let’s not fake or dance around it. The view the President voiced currently is a extremist sentiment,” Cooper pronounced in his live “AC360” broadcast.

The critique comes after Democrats, Republicans and immigration advocacy groups cursed the President’s profanity-laced remarks.

“Let me be transparent … the people of Haiti have been by more, they’ve withstood more, they’ve fought back against some-more misapplication than the President ever has,” Cooper said.

Anderson Cooper becomes romantic as he reacts to President Trump's characterization of Haiti and other countries as shithole countries. Cooper reflects on the strength Haitians showed as they battled the earthquake.

Friday marks eight years given a 7.0 bulk trembler struck Haiti, killing over 200,000 people and displacing scarcely 900,000.

The CNN horde choked up when recalling the time he witnessed a 5-year-old Haitian child being discovered from the rubble after buried for some-more than a week.

“Haitians slap your palm tough when they shake it, they demeanour you in the eye — they don’t blink. They mount high and have dignity,” Cooper said. “It’s a grace many in this White House could learn from. It’s a grace the President, with all his income and all his power, could learn from as well.”
