Well, well, well…Senator Durbin is now backtracking on exactly what he heard President Trump say during a meeting on immigration. Sen. Dick Durbin, the Democrat who claimed President Donald Trump used the term “sh*thole countries” to describe some third world nations, launching a controversy that has now reached into the stratosphere, said he stands by his words…even if he got them wrong!

Durbin insisted “I know what happened. I stand behind every word that I said.”

But when a reporter off camera said there’s been some debate over whether Trump used the term Durbin attributed to him or said “sh*thouse” instead, the senator was suddenly unsure what was said.

This is hysterical – now Durbin is backing away from what was really said. This has backfired on the Democrats in a big way.

Durbin was speaking to reporters Monday amid claims from more than one Republican senator who was at the private Oval Office meeting who said they did not hear Trump use the term “sh*thole.”

OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE DHS CHIEF AND REPUBLICANS WHO SAY TRUMP NEVER USED THE TERM TO DESCRIBE IMMIGRANT COUNTRIES:

THIS IS ALL LOOKING LIKE A LIE AND A SET-UP FROM SENATOR DURBIN:
Appearing on Fox News Sunday yesterday, new DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen hit back at claims that President Trump used a vulgarity in the immigration meeting last week. Senators David Perdue and Tom Cotton released a statement making the same claim. We’re going with our first instinct when this story broke that it’s all a fabrication from the Democrats and RINO’s to try and destroy Trump’s efforts to get a bipartisan deal on DACA. Let’s face it, the Democrats never wanted a deal to begin with so this false narrative sets up a reason for them not to cooperate that is more executable than the one that they just don’t want anything BUT amnesty.

epublican Senators David Perdue and Tom Cotton (see below) were in the room during a White House meeting last week  to discuss immigration. They both shot down reports that President Trump used the term “shithole countries”:

“I’m telling you he did not use that word, George. And I’m telling you it’s a gross misrepresentation. How many times do you want me to say that?” Sen. David Perdue told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday.

“The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive,” he said.

DICK DURBIN IS A LIAR…

The Washington Post reported on the remarks later Thursday and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin confirmed the president’s use of the language the next day.

WE TRUST TOM COTTON!

Sen. Tom Cotton, another attendee, said he didn’t hear what Durbin claims and questioned the Illinois lawmaker’s motivation.

“I certainly didn’t hear what Sen. Durbin has said repeatedly. Sen. Durbin has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings, though. So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by that,” Cotton said on CBS’ “Face The Nation.”

Ben Marter, a spokesman for Durbin, shot back at Perdue’s comments and said the issue comes down to credibility.

“Senator Durbin has it. Senator Perdue does not. Ask anyone who’s dealt with both,” he wrote on Twitter.

WE BELIEVE COTTON AND PERDUE OVER DURBIN!

We trust Cotton, Perdue and Nielson before we’d ever trust Durbin who has a history of lying. We think this is an alinsky tactic to freeze a target (Trump) and attack it.

THOU PROTEST TOO MUCH:

“I know what happened,” Durbin insisted. “I stand behind every word that I said.”

But when a reporter off camera said there’s been some debate over whether Trump used the term Durbin attributed to him or said “sh*thouse” instead, the senator was suddenly unsure what was said.

DURBIN PIVOTS:

“I don’t know that changing the word from ‘hole’ to ‘house’ changes the impact,” the lawmaker said, before trying to pivot back to the national reaction.

WE GET TO THE POINT OF ALL OF THIS FOR THE DEMOCRATS:

“I don’t think a majority of Americans agree with the president whichever word that he used,” Durbin said. “I don’t believe that a majority of the Republican Party agrees with the president, whichever word that he used.”
