Donald Trump was called out for disparaging remarks made in a meeting concerning an immigration plan brought to him by lawmakers regarding Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, and the continent of Africa. According to reports, Trump referred to the countries as "shit hole countries", and the White House did not deny it.
While reporting on the news, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer tried to take the high road but the harder he struggled, the funnier it became. Leave it to the Daily Show with Trevor Noah to point it out.

If Fareed Zakaria can call 45 a bullshit artist – and he did – then there’s nothing to stop any other journalist from quoting the prez himself. JUST SAY IT.— Steve Schwartz (@stevecommss53) January 12, 2018
“The president today equated attributes of certain nations with lavatories and implied that persons from a Northern European background might have access to superior sanitary facilities.”— Gerald O'Patrick (@Gerald95051) January 12, 2018
When the news media can’t quote the President because it’s too vulgar for TV. 🤦🏻♀️— CW ⚾️ (@ceeedubyah_cw) January 12, 2018
Is this the new normal?
