"Shithole" 0.1 World 3.23

Expressing Donald Trump's latest faux pas in goals and points is appropriate - he is definitely losing it (of course I am making a very big assumption that he ever had it)

The EU are starting to focus on fake news and if ever there was a better example of the press and indeed countries failing to:-

1. inform their citizens of the exact parameters

2. meet a challenge head on and deal with it as if it was real

here are recent reactions / interpretations / coverage of the "Trump shithole" story:-

Taiwan’s = niao bu sheng dan de guo jia”, which means “countries where birds don’t lay eggs”.
China, the People’s Daily “countries that suck”, 
Vietnam’s Youth newspaper in Ho Chi Minh City “rubbish states”. 
Greece’s daily Ta Nea “thieving countries”.
France’s Le Monde “pays de merde” – shit countries. 
French news site, Courrier International “trou a merde”, or hole of shit.

Poland’s Gazeta Wyborcza “imigrantach z zadupia”, immigrants from either shitholes, hellholes or “nowhere”.

South of the border or beyond the 'wall' the reaction is a little different:-

La Pagina in El Salvador “agujeros de mier…” = “shitholes”.
Haiti’s Le Nouvelliste “un trou de merde”.
Botswana's Ambassador is asking the US to clarify if Botswana is regarded as a “shithole” country.” 

Ireland may well qualify as a shithole - (I'll not single out specific counties or cities or towns or parishes) since that would take too long - nonetheless and in all seriousness it is a privilege to stand (ass to ass) with our sisters and brothers in Africa and Latin America ;-)

"¡Hasta la victoria siempre!" ("Until victory, always!").
