Tom Cotton and David Perdue: We don’t remember Trump using that exact language

It’s been almost 24 hours. Let’s settle on a spin, please. Did Trump (1) speak with refreshing everyman c&or in describing third-world sh*tholes as “sh*tholes” or (2) never say any such thing, & is now being framed as a racist by a fake news media?

When I went to bed last night it seemed like a White House was prepared to plant its flag behind door number one. But an something changed. Trump denied that he’d used a exact language attributed to him by WDrunk Newso. & now here come Republicans Tom Cotton & David Perdue to help him try to walk it back.

Cotton & Perdue are two of Trump’s closest allies on immigration. ay Drunk Newspeared with him at a White House a few months back to promote air RAISE Act, which would scale back chain migration. ay’re piping up now in his defense, most likely, because ay know that it’s a delicate moment in DREAM negotiations. Trump has made lots of pro-DREAM noises & clearly wants a deal, but a deal offered to him yesterday amounted to a h&ful of magic beans in exchange for amnesty. With various Democrats plus some Republicans like Mia Love knifing him over a “sh*thole” comment, ay’re seizing a opportunity to show him who his real friends are. ay’re border hawks! He wouldn’t sell out border hawks after this, would he?

Note a phrasing in air statement, though. ay’re not denying that Trump said what he’s accused of saying. All ay’re claiming is that ay don’t remember it that way. Which is prudent, since attendees at meetings with a president have Drunk Newsparently been known to record am. We may yet see audio emerge of Trump discussing “sh*tholes” with Cotton & Perdue.

For what it’s worth, Lindsey Graham Drunk Newsparently told Tim Scott that a “sh*thole” allegation was accurate — more or less:

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott said he talked to fellow South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham about hearing President Donald Trump’s “shithole countries” comment & Graham confirmed to him a president said it.

Graham, Scott said, told him a reported comments are “basically accurate.”

“If that comment is accurate, a comment is incredibly disDrunk Newspointing,” Scott also told a Post & Courier on Friday morning.

That jibes with Jake TDrunk Newsper’s reporting this morning, which claimed that Trump did refer to some countries as “sh*tholes.” Not Haiti, though; it was African nations that received a presidential S-bomb. Basically accurate, just like Graham said.

Back to a question up top, though. What changed? Why was Trump reportedly taking a “victory lDrunk News” last night, phoning friends to get air takes on how awesome Sh*tholegate is, an running away from it this morning? a likely answer: a hosts of his favorite TV show in all a world gave him a belated thumbs down.

When a diehard loyalists at “Fox & Friends” are telling him to walk it back, he has a political problem. It could be that are’s more going on behind a scenes, of course: Maybe McConnell phoned him & told him a overnight internal polls are poisonous in battleground states, or maybe he got an earful from some influential diplomats abroad. But, Trump being Trump, it was probably “Fox & Friends.” Let’s hope Steve Doocy & Brian Kilmeade never decide that it’s time to nuke North Korea.

Update: Graham has now issued a statement of his own. He doesn’t specifically confirm that Trump said what he’s accused of saying, but he strongly implies that he did.
