Dick Durbin Explains Why He Lied About The President’s Use of S***holes

By

Folks, I’m sure you remember how Sen. Dick Durbin accused President Donald Trump of referring to African countries as “s***holes” during a meeting that they both attended.

There’s just one problem with Durbin’s claims: He has a huge history of making up statements from private White House meetings.

Durbin was the only Democrat in the closed-door meeting about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Durbin was the first to speak out saying Trump used “hate-filled” and “racist” language “several times” during the summit.

Monday, Durbin was at the Gale Community Academy in Rogers Park for a Martin Luther King Day celebration. When asked about the comments he practically admitted that he used the ‘s***holes’ accusation as a bargaining chip in the DACA negotiations.

He claimed that the only way Trump could prove he’s not a racist is if he approves DACA:

And, he noted, “If Trump’s not a racist, Durbin said, “the president and the Republican Party have a chance to prove it” through a bipartisan compromise on immigration that helps the so-called “Dreamers” — people who were brought here illegally as children, through no fault of their own. President Obama had protected them through the DACA program, which stood for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, but Trump wants to end the program.
