Washington - House Speaker Paul Ryan says that President Donald Trump’s vulgar slur about Africa was “very unfortunate, unhelpful.”

The Wisconsin Republican was referring to Trump’s asking during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers why the U.S. should admit more immigrants from “shithole countries” like Africa.

Trump on Friday denied using certain “language,” but didn’t offer more specifics. Illinois Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin said Friday that Trump “said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly.”

Ryan said his ancestors were Irish and “were really looked down upon.” He called immigration “a great story” and said Haitians in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, are “incredible citizens.”

Ryan made his remark Friday at a public forum at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Thats because the truth hurts you brother. It wasn't wrong. Why should the USA take people from sh* countries? Whats wrong about that?

It was unhelpful in that how does using those slurs accomplish anything. But its not wrong.

At least 2 other people in the room besides Trump denied hearing the slur. At least in the fashion the Democrat made it to be. But G-d forbid because a Democrat had never been caught lying. I didn't have a sexual relationship with that woman...
