When you see liberals continuing to harangue President Donald Trump for supposedly using the word “sh**hole” to describe some rather crappy foreign countries, realize it is nothing but liberal bulls**t masquerading as outrageously outraged outrage.
After all, history being our guide we knew that practically every president has engaged in potty-mouthed rhetoric and many even racial epithets and “hate” speech. So, let’s ignore this crap and move on.
Some of our past presidents were notorious racists. Despite being the darling of the left, Woodrow Wilson was 100 percent positive that blacks were in no way whatever an equal to whites and he led his life opposing any black advancements. Franklin Delano Roosevelt even sent Asian Americans to internment camps, for Pete’s sake.
One of the most profane presidents was “the president of the common man,” Andrew Jackson who called people names at the drop of a hat. Another very profane man was Lyndon B. Johnson.
Johnson was not only a profane man, he was a crude, unprofessional, loudmouth. A perhaps little known recording of LBJ ordering a pair of pants from the Haggar clothing company is a perfect example of how the Texan was not the sort of person who was a good fit around polite company. He even belches right into the phone during the conversation.
Here is how crude LBJ was if you can stand to listen to it:
But LBJ said far worse things than that. He is infamous to hating blacks. Johnson, for instance used the N-word all the time. He even called the 1965 Civil Rights Act the “nigger bill.” He also called the Vietnamese those “hordes of barbaric yellow dwarves.”
But, The Hill newspaper recently noted a whole list of more modern presidents who used very salty language, including both Bushes, Clinton, and even Ronald Reagan.
“One of the more profane presidents in recent history was Richard Nixon,” the newspaper reported. “Nixon was caught on White House tapes using numerous vulgarities, including some offensive terms about gay people.”
Other instances include Reagan, who liked to call people SOBs, Obama, who called Mitt Romney a “bullsh***er,” George W. Bush who said some of his cabinet members “never made a fu**ing decision,” and Bill Clinton who once said on an open mic that he wasn’t going to take any “s**t” from anyone during an interview about his wife’s last, doomed run for the White House.
Vice presidents have also been known to indulge the occasional swear word. You’ll remember that Dick Cheney called a reporter an a-hole, Joe Biden was known for telling his boss that Obamacare was a “big fu**ing deal,” and FDR’s first VP, John “Cactus Jack” Garner once said that the vice presidency “wasn’t worth a warm bucket of s**t.”
So, it really is totally common for our top leaders to use profanity. One presidential historian insisted that we need to all reign in our outrageously outraged outrage.
“I have interviewed six presidents of the United States,” author Doug Wead told the paper. “I have traveled with them. I have been in their homes. They’ve been in my home on multiple occasions. I have flown on Air Force One with them and commercial jets and private jets and car caravans and Winnebagos. Went to Disney World with one. They all have used the ‘S-word.’ Even that old gentleman, Ronald Reagan, would sometimes occasionally, rarely use the ‘F-word.’ So, the White house is going to endure.”
Finally, we have to remind everyone that the meeting in which Trump supposedly uttered the “sh**hole” comment was a private meeting, not a public one. And this is also an important mitigating factor.
