Eugene Robinson on MSNBC: Under Trump, America's the 'S-hole' Country Now

August 11th, 2020 10:14 AM

Not that we've had much doubt as to how the liberal media looks at the United States. But Eugene Robinson, of the Washington Post and MSNBC, laid it out in the clearest, crudest, terms today. Appearing on Morning Joe, Robinson, commenting on the fact that Canada and the Bahamas are prohibiting the entry of US residents because of America's ongoing struggle with coronavirus under Trump, said:

"We are pariahs. We are the s-hole country that nobody wants people from. That's us now."



Joe Scarborough, predictably, agreed: "yeah!" He spiked the football: "Donald Trump's ignorance of history, Donald Trump's ignorance of medicine, Donald Trump's ignorance of epidemiology, Donald Trump's refusal to listen to his experts have put us in this position."

So the US is the "pariah," the "s-hole country." Really? If America were to open its borders, as the Democrats effectively want, how many hundreds of millions, billions, would come flooding into our supposed "s-hole?"

Robinson should be ashamed. But of course he's not. Just another liberal-media soldier doing his bit to help drag Joe Biden over the finish line. 

Eugene Robinson calling the United States a "s-hole" was sponsored in part by Lincoln and Home Advisor.

Here's the transcript of Robinson's "s-hole" exchange with Scarborough.

Morning Joe
6:31 am EDT

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Mika, I was thinking about asking Gene Robinson if he wanted to go on a road trip with me, kind of maybe bring a video camera, do like a buddy movie, a documentary, Gene and Joe’s excellent Adventure. We could go up to Canada. 

Joe Scarborough Eugene Robinson Morning Joe 8-11-20MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Poor Gene.

SCARBOROUGH: And then I realized —

EUGENE ROBINSON: We can’t, Joe. We can't.

SCARBOROUGH: They don’t want our types in Canada. Americans not allowed to go there!


SCARBOROUGH: But then we were talking, Gene, about getting on a boat and going to the Bahamas, because the Bahamas lets anybody in, lets any American in with money. They’d even let me in. And then, Gene, we can’t even go to the Bahamas. Our money’s not welcome there.

 . . . 

I mean, seriously. Did you ever think, Gene, in all of your years, that the United States of America would be in such a poor condition, a Third World condition when it came to health care and the government’s handling of a pandemic, that we wouldn't be able to go to other countries?

ROBINSON: It's just appalling, and shocking, really, that we're in this position. But this is where we are. We are pariahs. We are, we are the s-hole country that nobody wants people from. That's us now.
