Remember When Obama Called A Country A ‘Sh*tshow’ And No One Cared At All?

I think the “sh*thole” comment was a stupid thing to say.

I think we have too many important things going on to completely derail everything over a stupid comment.

And so while I don’t think it was the racist atrocity the left wants to make it out to be… I really think it was silly. It’s just not worth it.

That being said… it’s reeeeally interesting how that seems to be a big deal, but this doesn’t…

Daily Caller recalls:

Following President Trump’s Thursday comments, it’s worth noting that former President Obama called the African country of Libya a “shit show” just two years ago.

The comments were recorded in an interview with The Atlantic. The wide-ranging interview was based on Obama’s foreign policy over his eight years in office. During one portion of the interview, Obama said described Libya as a “mess” to the interviewer but behind closed doors called the country a “shit show.”

Here are the comments:

So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion—which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.

Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an isis haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.


It’s a good thing that was covered extensively by the media, otherwise, people might not realize how hypocritical they’re being!
