Senator Lindsey Graham didn’t actually confirm it, but he allegedly claimed that the unreliable Democrat Senator’s accusations about Trump’s “shithole countries” remarks were “basically accurate”…and the rabid, leftist media ran with it.
After the unreliable Democrat Senator Dick Durbin accused President Trump of referring to Haiti and various African nations, as “shithole countries” during a private, bi-partisan, DACA meeting that included six senators, the press had a nuclear meltdown. President Trump immediately came out to refute the allegation by the openly anti- Trump Senator, saying that he used “harsh language” in the meeting, but he did not say what Durbin accused him of saying.
The liberal, war-hawk senator from South Carolina, was the first Republican to remark on the alleged comments. It was reported that he allegedly told fellow South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, that the accusation made by Durbin was “basically accurate”. “Basically accurate”? Well, if we were to tell you that the hypocritical Senator Lindsey Graham called Mexico, and nations south of our border, “hell-holes” during a public televised meeting, would it be “accurate” or “basically accurate” if we included a video?
During a 2013 immigration debate in the Judiciary Committee, on an immigration bill he co-authored, Senator Lindsey Graham was attempting to point out the importance of defending our southern border, by painting a picture of the difference between our northern border with Canada and nations south of our borders, calling them a “tale of two borders”.
“The people coming across the southern border live in hellholes. They don’t like that. They want to come here. Our problem is we can’t have everybody in the world who lives in a hellhole come to America,”

Senator Jeff Sessions, who is now President Trump’s Attorney General, jumped in to save Graham from making a monumental international blunder with his criticism of Mexico.
Sessions tried to save Graham, saying: “It’s not a hellhole, it has great things going on in Mexico, we’re proud of the people in Mexico. They’re good people.”
Graham replied: “You’re right. I wasn’t slandering Mexico, I was just talking about all the places people want to leave, for whatever reason.”
Yeah, okay Lindsey, whatever you say…
