Silly me. The GOP seems to have made its choice, judging by the weaselly response from most of the Republicans who were in the Oval Office on Thursday when Trump made vile and nakedly racist remarks. "It was a meeting of 12 people".
Trump denied that he used this language while discussing immigrants from Haiti and African nations.

"That I can tell you", he told reporters. Cory Booker, D-N.J., "seething with anger", pounced on Nielsen for her convenient memory loss under oath and her attempt to "dismiss" questions about the episode.
