As long as the Norwegians are not terrorists and can do jobs left wanting here, bring'em on. Now the feecehole types....well, harrumph. What can they do, Fries with that? I would not want them to handle my fries unless someone watched them sanitize their hands before handling my food. I've already had food poisoning (thanks U.S. Air) once from a non-hand washer as the culture proved. Very special food poisoning coming only from non hand washers......

It is highly unfair to paint with such a broad brush. Sure, some folks from those areas, as well as many locations here, are uneducated or lazy or whatever. But not all of them are. Some serve in the military, others have decent jobs as well some even do the work that many natural born Americans feel they are too good to stoop to.

So, here's something fun: the Rupert Murdoch owned Wall Street Journal - so not MSNBC or CNN - is reporting that Trump, via one of his lawyers, paid a porn star who performs under the name "Stormy Daniels", $130,000 prior to the 2016 election as part of a deal where she would not talk about her having sex with Trump in 2006, a year after he married Melania. Ms. Daniels says the sex was consensual so there is no rape or assault or anything like that being alleged. Just some good old fashion extramarital sex and the associated hush money.

Donald Trump is the comedic gift that keeps on giving. I think this has zero impact on him, but it will make for some hilarious fodder.

Btw, I don't care where Trump puts Little Trump. None of my business. I just think it's hilarious he paid $160k for people not to find out he boinked a porn star a year after marrying a model.

Well,at least that's consistent with the standards in Washington DC. So there's that.

That's going to be the best part of this. The inevitable "shocked! shocked!" reactions.

This could all have been avoided if he'd just said "Emmert-hole" instead.

My youngest told me just a short while ago that he saw two "political analyst" types on the tube discussing whether this situation would have received less of a reaction if he had said "hell-hole" instead of "sh*t-hole".

American politics defy parody.

I don't know. Hell-hole invokes too many Spinal Tap images and I can't see how that makes people feel any better.

What he said was a lot more fun. 160K to shut up and then she told? Is there no integrity among thieves, anymore? rhetorical.
I know a person named Stormy but not Miss Daniels. :D
