"He is not fit to serve as the President of the United States. It's not really a debate at this point," writes Billy Eichner.
President Trump set off Twitter again on Thursday, after a report from The Washington Post accused him of referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries" in a meeting with senators at the White House.
According to WaPo, the group was discussing immigration and visa lottery system when Trump asked why the United States would want immigrants "from all these shithole countries" instead of countries like Norway.
The White House didn't exactly deny the comments in a statement released after the Post's story went up. "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people," White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said. "He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway."
Stars quickly hit up Twitter to express their anger and disappointment over Trump's words:
He is not fit to serve as the President of the United States. It's not really a debate at this point. It could not be more obvious.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) January 11, 2018
How is he allowed to talk to us this way?!! Are there no more moral and ethical codes left in America since he took office! https://t.co/hf33X8NtZj— John Leguizamo (@JohnLeguizamo) January 11, 2018
The staue of liberty where #trump’s grandparents immigrated through doesn’t say, “send me your whites only from Norway not from those shithole countries.”— John Leguizamo (@JohnLeguizamo) January 11, 2018
Fuck this corrupted, amoral dunce fuck and everything his ignorance tries to validate. His White House press release spelled Norway ‘Normay.’ So much for white ‘supremacy.’ https://t.co/9rUsDDkwva— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) January 11, 2018
Why would people from Norway want to immigrate here? They have actual health care, and longer life expectancy.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) January 11, 2018
Trump probably thinks “his base” approves of that language. My guess is that most are disgusted by it.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) January 11, 2018
I was on a flight without wifi for 3 hrs. Land and immediately read Trump reportedly opened his pie-hole to insult immigrants...again.— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) January 11, 2018
I can’t with this freaking troglodyte. Just can’t.
Congratulations to everyone who had "SHITHOLE COUNTRIES" in your Racist President Bingo card!— The Daily Show (@TheDailyShow) January 11, 2018
Trump apparently wants more Norwegians and fewer people from ”shithole” countries in Africa. You know what’s a real shithole? Trump’s goddamned mouth.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) January 11, 2018

He also said countries like Norway are cool.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) January 11, 2018
I wonder what the underlying logic is. Can’t quite put my finger on it. https://t.co/Xr3wHoKIc8
I for one love Haiti, the second republic (1804) in this hemisphere, a founding member of the United Nations, the Pearl of the Antilles. I love the people, their artistry, their indomitable spirit. Haiti, mon amour.— Bill Moseley (@choptopmoseley) January 11, 2018
trump - u shithole ...— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 11, 2018
Trump attacks protections for immigrants from ‘shithole’ countries in Oval Office meeting https://t.co/01vo2COM1X Our daily degradation from this disgraceful racist fool & his pathetic lackeys.— Martha Plimpton (@MarthaPlimpton) January 11, 2018
Beyond the gigantic racist puke that Trump is espousing, theres a further irony; Norway is a welfare state. It goes WAY out of its way to look after its poorest & most in need. It taxes them to do it, & its citizens expect it, except it & believe its right thing to do.— Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) January 11, 2018
Can’t wait until we get rid of this shithole president.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) January 11, 2018
