Dick Durbin is a liar! So say Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, both of whom were present in the meeting with President Trump during which, according to Durbin, the President referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as “sh*tholes.”
Durbin has a lengthy record of protecting the guilty and prosecuting the innocent. When Susan Rice was caught unmasking names of senior Trump officials, Durbin defended her as “doing her job.” He also has a troublingly short memory. He condemned the term chain migration as racist mere days after using it at a bipartisan meeting at the White House.
According to Tom Cotton, Durban also has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings:

Funny story. As I was driving down the road one day listening to Neal Boortz on the radio, someone on the program referred to Dick Durban as Dick Turban. Without missing a beat, the quick-witted Boortz asked, “Wonder where you buy one of those.” I think few people caught it and the show moved on.
