Jim Acosta First to Say ‘Sh*thole’ On Air After Report on Trump Slur

In the wake of a bombshell story from The Washington Post reporting that President Donald Trump described African countries, Haiti and El Salvador as “shithole[s],” cable news talking heads have been doing what they do worst: trying to avoid using Trump’s expletives on air. Well, apparently CNN’s Jim Acosta doesn’t give a shit. The White House reporter disregarded the age-old art of censoring expletives from the president, opting for a hearty pronunciation of “SHITHOLE” whilst appearing on Wolf Blitzer’s program. “Apparently the president made some extremely offensive remarks about other countries like Haiti and countries in Africa sending migrants to the United States,” Acosta explained, describing the comments the president reportedly said at an Oval Office meeting today. Acosta continued:
The president said, ‘why are we having all of these people from,’ — and I apologize for using this word here, but this is a quote from the president — are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?’

At least he apologized. CNN also had an uncensored chyron running that blared “WASHPOST: TRUMP SLURS IMMIGRANTS FROM SHITHOLE COUNTRIES” Watch a mannerless Acosta above, via CNN. [image via screengrab] — Follow Aidan McLaughlin (@aidnmclaughlin) on Twitter
