Liberals and anti-Trump Republicans are attempting to make a big deal out of the fact that President Donald Trump used a curse word through a closed doors meeting to express his frustration at a number of our country’s backward and unhelpful immigration policies.
This off-the-cuff remark has gotten significant airtime, while the hate-filled, profanity-laden tirade produced by a CNN contributor in reaction has gone almost completely unreported. Philip Mudd is CNN’s resident counterterrorism analyst and clearly doesn’t understand how to hold his tongue and comport himself on tv that children could be watching.
On Don Lemon’s program that the guests dicussed President Trump’s contentious “shithole” comment, and Mudd reacted with a cascade of swears, claiming that Trump is a racist, “A white honkey from Norway can come here, but a black dude out of Haiti can’t.
Mudd went, in a torrent of obscenities, “I will tell you everything that tells a honkey like me. We’re not any different than we were a generation ago, and were studying the same lessons we learned when we called a Chinese guy a ‘slant-eye,’ when we called a guy from Guatemala a ‘spic’ and a ‘wetback,’ and we called a black guy a ‘nigger.’ That is what it tells me. We now have a ways to learn.”
During a previous appearance on Wolf Blitzer’s show, Mudd was both profane and improper. After telling Blitzer “I am a proud shitholer,” Mudd went on disgustingly, “My family was known as ‘WOPs’ and ‘mackerel eaters.’ We arrived from Italians and Irish that were considered as individuals from shithole countries. A century ago we called people ‘slant-eyes,’ Chinese immigrants that we are now ashamed of talking about in these terms because they came out of a shithole country and now they are a backbone of the nation. In the 1940s, we called people ‘traitors’ because they came out of a shithole country named Japan, and we are ashamed. We called people who fled from battle in Central America ‘spics’ and ‘wetbacks,’ and we are ashamed.” Are you aware that CNN aired this sort of discussion on live TV? Watch below:
