Barack Obama claimed Libya a “sh** show” – no media outrage

Barack Obama claimed Libya a “sh** show” – no media outrage

Yesterday the media led a worldwide attack on President Trump for supposedly using vulgar language in an oval office meeting to refer to Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries. The media’s response allows for the opportunity to do a little comparing and contrasting. It turns out that Trump is not the first president to use an expletive behind closed doors to refer to a foreign country.

In an article from April 2016, The Atlantic reported that former President Obama privately called Libya a “sh**show.” This is similar to the recent incident with Trump in every way except one: Obama’s comment received virtually no media coverage.

The media, in attempting to stir up hatred towards Trump, has managed to further expose its pervasive bias.

The Media Overlooks Obama’s Remark
Obama’s remark came during an interview he did in 2016 for The Atlantic, in which the topic explored was his foreign policy.

There came a point in the interview when Obama was asked about Libya. This is what Obama had to say on the record:

So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion—which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.

But, according to The Atlantic, the former president had much more to say off the record:

Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an ISIS haven—one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.

In what The Independent called “an unprecedented attack on a British leader by a serving US President,” Obama went on to blame most of his failures regarding Libya on David Cameron, and in general the inaction of American allies.

What was the media’s response to this? Virtual silence.

Media Backlash After Trump’s Comments
The Washington Post was the first to report Trump as saying, “Why do we want all these people from ‘sh**hole countries’ coming here?” This remark was said, apparently, on Thursday at a closed-door oval office meeting regarding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and the countries referred to were Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

Subsequently, the media was quick to lead the world in condemning Trump, in stark contrast to its handling of Obama’s comments. The compulsive newsreader can quickly find article after article of newspapers from around the world critical of Trump’s remark.

Since these reports, Trump denied using the language in a string of tweets.

The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!

Double Standard
What we have here are two very similar incidents with two very different responses: Obama privately used an expletive to refer to a foreign country, just as Trump did. The media kept quiet regarding what Obama said, but launched a worldwide attack on Trump.

The media coverage of Trump’s language is just another attempt to hurt the president’s reputation in a way that will one day lead to his impeachment. But, what it really did was continue to expose the heavy bias of mainstream media.

Donald Trump claims he did NOT say “sh–hole countries” in private talks with Democrats

Donald Trump claims he did NOT say “sh–hole countries” in private talks with Democrats

It’s not “Lyin’ Ted” anymore — it’s “Lyin’ Dick.”

President Donald Trump released a statement Friday disputing Sen. Dick Durbin’s claim that the commander-in-chief used an expletive to describe third-world countries like Haiti. The Illinois Democrat alleged Trump remarked during a bipartisan meeting on Deferred Action to Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, Thursday that the U.S. doesn’t need people coming from “sh—hole countries.”
Tough, but incorrect characterization
“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!” the president tweeted.

Trump followed this up with a statement that he neither denigrated Haitians nor said “take them out.” Any claims to the contrary were “Made up by Dems.” The president tweeted:
President’s statement confirmed
Although some people at the meeting sided with Durbin, other attendees didn’t recall Trump using the description. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia released a joint statement. It said:
In regards to Senator Durbin’s accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest. We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades.
The president concluded that Democrats are simply changing the narrative from the real issue — how to fix DACA while solving other immigration issues.
Lyin’ Dick?
Durbin has been known to stretch the truth in the past. He claimed that during a 2013 White House meeting, a senior Republican lawmaker told then-President Barack Obama, “I cannot even stand to look at you.”

Neither the White House nor anyone else supported this claim. Politico reported at the time:

The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Sen. Dick Durbin, said in a Facebook post that a House Republican leader told off President Barack Obama during a negotiation meeting, and that GOP leaders are so disrespectful it’s practically impossible to have a conversation with them.
But Wednesday afternoon, both the White House and House speaker’s office denied his claims.

In a 2005 incident, Durbin was forced to apologize for comparing the interrogation methods used by U.S. troops to those of Nazis.
The Washington Post reported:
Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism.

Durbin, the Democratic whip, acknowledged that “more than most people, a senator lives by his words” but that “occasionally words will fail us and occasionally we will fail words.” Choking up, he said: “Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies.”

Will Trump get a tearful, Senate floor apology on this issue? It’s doubtful, and even if the president used those words, the outrage from the left detracts from what’s needed: border security, ending chain migration, putting an end to lottery visas and fixing DACA.
