The ripple effect of Trump’s penchant for saying anything that pops into his head, is only underscored (and made further infuriating) by the senators and spokespersons who bend over backwards to defend such statements. Such is the case with Pastor Mark Burns, who showed up on a panel and quoted senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue pretending to have never heard Trump refer to any countries as “shitholes”. CNN host Erin Burnett rightfully called out these senators: “That’s pretty pathetic, you either recall or you don’t… That’s just BS,” she said. A rightful callout of the Trump Administration’s feigned ignorance in the face of his incompetence.
