    Both Senator Durbin and Senator Graham, one a Democrat and one a Republican, have lied about President Trump using the word "sh**hole" to describe people from Haiti and Africa. Numerous people, including Senators Cotton and Perdue, have said that the language was not used. And more importantly, the President himself has denied it.

    Thus, we can conclude that Durbin and Graham are lying and are actively slandering the President of the United States.

    Shouldn't they be censured? Kicked out of the Senate? When you dishonestly attack our President, shouldn't something happen to you?

      Kiersten Nielsen, director of Homeland Security, confirmed yesterday during testimony that President Trump didn't not use the term. While he may have used very strong language, he didn't say the word everyone says he said.

      So again, I ask, what should the punishment be for Senators Graham and Durbin for attacking the President of the United States and slandering him? Shouldn't they be forced to resign?

        Certainly not what we're hearing everywhere.  Was the wording used strong and then blown up into something even worse?  We'll likely never know.

          And when that clip comes out and it shows President Trump didn't say anything like what he's accused of saying, what should the punishment be for these traitors?

            Oh please, Trump DID say it.    There were MULTIPLE witnesses to his racist statement.   Only Trump & his minion are now reneging & doing other prevarications to indicate that "no such" remarks were uttered.   C'mon now, the American people aren't that obtuse.

              He denies it. More people who were in that room say that he didn't use the word than did. Only Senators Graham and Durbin say he said it. Everyone else, including the President himself, say otherwise.

              The only conclusion that can be drawn, based on the witnesses and the evidence, is that Durbin and Graham are lying and attacking the President.

              We should get to the bottom of this. What is the punishment for slandering a President?

                Well of course, Trump is doing to deny the statement.  What else would you expect?   People who are unscrupulous & unethical are going to backtrack their egregious behavior to cover up their wrongdoings! They know that they are inherently wrong but they elect to deny such behavior.   If there are MULTIPLE witnesses indicating that the statement was said, there is some veracity in this.   Trump revealed his true character behind closed doors, PURE AND SIMPLE.   The only ones who are denying the statement are Trump's sycophants who KNOW but elect to placate him.

                Are there any more rationalizations that you have regarding this?  Please further elaborate.........

                  Are you falling into the trap that if more than one person makes a claim that it has to be true? 
                  "If there are MULTIPLE witnesses indicating that the statement was said, there is some veracity in this."
                  "Trump revealed his true character behind closed doors, PURE AND SIMPLE."

                  Or the trap of deciding that you, and only you, can assign reasons for what people lie about?  Because, of course, the same could be said of those claiming it was said; they hate Trump and wish to destroy him so will lie about what he said.

                  "The only ones who are denying the statement are Trump's sycophants who KNOW but elect to placate him."

                  Were I willing to make such a statement (I'm not), I'd have to go with the liars being those who hate him and wish to harm him.  After all, that includes most of the Hill folk and they've expressed their hate and desires quite loudly.

        If you believe that, there is a mansion in Scarsdale I can sell you for $467.09!  If you believe that, Madonna has class.   If you believe that, Lucifer has mankind's best intentions at heart.  If you believe that, Hitler was the greatest man ever lived.

    The water is muddied now beyond any ability to clear it. Those who hate will always believe it. Those who don't will have to accept we'll never know,for sure.

      But there's the truth. And the preponderance of the evidence, based on the number of witnesses and their responses, suggest he didn't say it.

      Therefore, this is an unprecedented attack on the President by two sitting senators. What should the consequences for that be?

        Lol, no one is biting. They know what Trump said, but defend him anyway. I guess even they are unwilling to condemn the truth tellers, Durbin and Graham.

        For goodness sake. If there were consequences to lies told in Washington there'd be no politicians. Obviously some are lying and some telling the truth.  I suppose you think we should just have a few years of congressional hearings on the matter.

          big_smile  Too bad we can't get Harry Potter to provide for some "Pinocchio" action up on the Hill.  We'd produce enough wood to heat every home in the nation!

      Those disbelieving Trump said these words are more than likely Fox watchers and/or Trump voters. The rest of the world knows Trump is lying as he normally does. You guys believe his BS every day and condone it as well.

        I have always said that if he didn't say it, he could have. Foot in mouth is his trademark.
