Remember when he said our troops were like Nazis?
The Lid: The nation recently discovered Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin after he made the so far unsupported claim that President Donald Trump called several third world nations “sh**hole countries.” But, what most Americans don’t know is that Dick Durbin has a long history of lying in service to the Democrat Party and the anti-American, left-wing cause.
Durbin hit the airwaves last week claiming that Trump disparaged several foreign nations, including Haiti, Durbin proclaimed Trump a racist (again) and attacked him for being un-presidential. But the comment, IF Trump, even said it, was said in a private meeting, not in a public forum. So, in truth, we have no actual proof it was said.
The ensuing media frenzy is entirely hypocritical of the press considering that, to one degree or another, nearly every single president (and vice president, for that matter) has had a potty mouth in private meetings. And yet, the press has never reported on the salty language of past presidents. But Trump? Oh, yeah, the media went wild to report on the claimed cursing by Trump, despite the lack of proof he even said it.
But, what about that “proof”? The claims the media fell all over itself to report upon came from no less than Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin. And Durbin has decades of lies piled up to his credit. In fact, Durbin is one of the biggest liars in the whole of the upper chamber.
One of the more trenchant recent lies from Durbin is directly connected to the current immigration debate. Along with his claim about Trump, last week Durbin also complained that using the term “chain migration” is considered “racist.” This is a flat-out lie. No one anywhere has ever said that the term is “racist” until Durbin tried to use it as a weapon against Republicans.
Indeed, this liar himself has used the term chain migration without claiming there was any “racist” connotation. Back in 2010, Durbin was happy to argue in favor of the policy saying that it was a necessary part of the DREAM Act.
There are many other examples of Durbin lies. Back in 2013, for instance, Durbin was at it again, lying about what was said in a private meeting. Durbin claimed that House Republicans acted in a racist manner toward President Obama and said they “can’t stand to look at him.”
Durbin soon started sending out fundraising letters on the strength of his claims, yet not a single other people ever substantiated this lie, including Obama. more here
