POTUS (PROFANITY OF THE UNITED STATES)
---
Warning to parents: You might consider this column unsuitable for your children. It is riddled with asterisks that provide flimsy cover for obscenities. We pretend that we are family friendly by using these asterisks. Never mind that our little darlings use the foulest language the moment they're out of your earshot -- and so do you the moment you're out of their earshot -- because we're hypocrites, this here will be shot full of the hated asterisks.
For this, you can thank our current president, Donald Trump. Once again, he has demonstrated that he's a crass racist by referring to El Salvador,Haiti and African nations as "s***hole countries." Let's not get distracted by any sanctimony about profanity and instead stick to what this illustrates about our fearless leader: The guy is a bigoted ***hole, who is such a dumbs**t that he doesn't realize he can't insult developing countries in public.
He made the "s***hole" comment during a meeting in the Oval Office with a group of senators who were there to discuss immigration. Why, he asked, couldn't more of those seeking a life in America come from nations like Norway--translate "white"-- instead of places that aren't so white and are therefore "s***holes"?
Once again, he was reinforcing the argument that he is a crazy bas***d whose ability to restrain himself is in the cra**er. The charge that he's mentally defective has gotten new energy, particularly after the publication of Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" bestseller in which various high-level associates have questioned whether the bowels of Trump's brain are plugged up, at least the part that controls inhibitions.
El Trumpo denied saying what witnesses reported. He went on Twitter, as usual: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used ..." meaning "sh**hole." Yeah, right. Remember that he's a da**ed liar, a pathological one.

Ironically, he and his handlers had just enjoyed some limited success when they allowed TV cameras to capture nearly an hour's worth of bipartisan budget/immigration negotiations at the White House. POTUS had managed to stay, uh, loose, throughout, although he did almost get rolled by Democrat Dianne Feinstein. Sen. Feinstein suggested that they agree to "clean" legislation to resolve the Dreamer problem. Trump was aware of the issue. Thanks to him, 600,000-plus young people who were brought here when their parents came to the U.S. illegally stood to be deported from the only country they've known. However, he was naive as h**l ... clearly not aware that a "clean" bill only deals with one subject. Republicans have insisted on using the Dreamers as pawns as they negotiate a budget deal. So when the president indicated that he was fine with Feinstein's approach, the GOP leaders in attendance went bats**t crazy, correcting Trump for all the world to see.
Perhaps all of this explains how Oprah Winfrey's well-received speech at the Golden Globe awards ignited an "Oprah for President" firestorm on Twitter. It not only illustrated the horror that so many millions of people feel about the current occupant of the White House, but it revealed the pathetic state of the Democratic Party, which is even less organized than usual. So Oprah Winfrey looked pretty enticing as a candidate.
It's a ridiculous idea, if for no other reason than we are witnessing what can happen when we elect someone with no experience in politics or governing. Unfortunately for Oprah, the highs of highest office speculation came in the same week as her mansion in Montecito, California, was severely damaged by the tragic mudslides that ravaged the same area that had been so devastated by fires just weeks ago.
Back at the White House, the Trumpsters were once again shoveling up the s**t after their president's "s***hole" comment, trying, among other things, to quell any diplomatic problems. Yes, Donald Trump has become the asterisk president, who is constantly putting our country at risk.
