In an all new low even for him, President Donald Trump called Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, “shithole countries” and wondered out loud why the United States would want immigrants from those nations. The vulgar statement was made in the oval office during a meeting with senators about immigration.

It did not take long for politicians, pundits, and celebrities to offer pointed responses to the president’s boorish words.
