WTF MSM!? Jumping in the hole? ...

Why all of a sudden? …

Wait! Presidents swear? … There is a raging debate about whether or not Donald Trump used the word “shithole” during a meeting on immigration in the Oval Office this week. I’ll let others debate the ramifications of that. What I’m more interested in is the sudden pearl-clutching by the Left and its media allies. First up, take this statement by Sen. Dick Durbin:

"The president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. It is not true. He said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly... I cannot believe that in the history of the White House — in that Oval Office — any president has spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday."

Really? The word “shit” has never been said in the Oval Office? Give us a break. Oh, and here’s a primer on the long history of presidents swearing.

So why use the full word … Remember when Joe Biden said that Obamacare was a big effing deal? Do you remember the news media going full-bore putting swear words on the screen? Do you remember “journalists” lining up to use the words? That’s the question Ben Shapiro asked an NPR host on Twitter. The host had just explained why the radio network started using the word “shithole” on air, after initially not using it.

CNN goes full hole … The folks at CNN didn’t just stop at repeating the word attributed to Trump by anonymous sources. Nope, Chris Cuomo wrote the word on air, on a whiteboard, and used it to describe Trump himself. Jim Acosta went full-bore in uttering the word on air. Here, watch. The faux-rage over the word used is precious.
