It’s been a surreal day in the news business, even by Trump standards. All over television, newspaper websites, and social media, asterisks, bleeps, and other symbols and audible substitutes normally applied to inappropriate language disappeared before our very eyes, as outlet after outlet printed, said, and otherwise featured the word “shithole” in all its glorious entirety.
The disappearing act occurred in the moments after news broke that President Trump wondered aloud at an immigration meeting with congressional leaders why we took so many people from “shithole” countries like Haiti, and not from countries like Norway.
Now that the veil has been lifted over all remaining propriety in the media, the New York Daily News is taking “shithole-gate” to a whole new level.
They’ve released an advance copy of the cover of tomorrow’s print edition, and it’s an absolutely brutal takedown of President Trump.
See for yourself below, and then read their story on what an unprecedentedly disgraceful news day this was the office of the American presidency.
