Dan Rather just broke the internet with a brutal response to Trump’s “shithole countries” comment

Legendary journalist Dan Rather took to Facebook moments ago to lambast President Trump’s unimaginably racist remarks on immigration.


All the grace, inclusion, historical understanding, and eloquence that Rather represents find their diametric opposite in the hateful slurs of Donald Trump, the man who currently serves as the face of our great nation.

The man who called Nazis “very fine people” compared El Salvador, Haiti and all of Africa to “nice countries like Norway” in a White House meeting on immigration with lawmakers of both parties yesterday. 

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” said the “president.”

The Republicans who harbor this Bigot-in-Chief will forever live in ignominy.

Meanwhile, the rest of us must summon the values inherent in Rather’s words and demand that the United States manifest the greatness to which it aspires.

We can only achieve that greatness by first ejecting the deplorable man who now inhabits the Oval Office.
