Former Georgia GOP congressman Jack Kingston, a believer of President Donald Trump, struggled to urge the president’s extremist malediction that found him job African nations “sh*thole countries.”
“As you substantially know, I traveled many times with the Congressional Black Caucus to Africa,” Kingston said. “I was very concerned with it, as was Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK).”
His invulnerability went downhill fast.
“They’re intensely excellent people,” Kingston continued condescendingly, after informing the radio assembly that he sponsored “three children given they’ve been in an orphanage.”
Symone Sanders, former press secretary to Sen. Bernie Sanders, stared wide-eyed in dishonesty as Kingston spoke.
After collecting herself, Sanders laid out the facts.
“The President of the United States is [...] making broad generalizations about an entire group of people formed on where they live, given he’s ignorant of their experience,” she said. “We need to have a frank conversation about that.”
