Management is angry, labor mocks

I suppose someone should log it in it for the record, so -- how would you cover Massster's most recent deranged outburst if you were the network that lived and died by Massster's every word?

President Trump lamented “s---hole countries” during immigration negotiations on Thursday with lawmakers in the Oval Office, Fox News has confirmed.

“Why are we having all these people from s---hole countries come here?” the president said, in comments first reported by The Washington Post.

The president was referring to people from Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras and African countries in the temporary protected status program, a source in the meeting told Fox News.


The hed seems closer to a literal representation of the truth; at least, he's closer to lamenting (a lexical choice that must have burned up a few Fox brain cells around the old thesaurus) immigration from those countries, rather than the countries themselves. But, by way of comparison, you'd like a look at Thursday evening's No. 2 story -- to wit, Nancy Pelosi's bloodthirsty attack on the "five white guys":

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., took a shot at immigration negotiations involving her top deputy, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, slamming them as “the five white guys” -- and drawing a rebuke from Hoyer himself.

Speaking at her weekly press conference, Pelosi complained that the immigration talks did not include any minority members of Congress which she said was done intentionally to delay any agreement “since it would need sign-off from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and others.”

The California Democrat compared the group of men, including Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, to the popular hamburger and fry chain Five Guys.

“The five white guys I call them, you know,” Pelosi said. “Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?”

Management always "offers" and labor always "demands"; Liebling, thou shouldst be living at this hour.

Just for the heck of it, enjoy these claim quotes from the BBC. First, the top story on the homepage:
... then the inside version
"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Mr Trump told lawmakers on Thursday, according to the Washington Post.

Enough of that. I'm done.
