What say you, Congressman?

The Washington Post reports that Congressman Goodlatte was at the meeting Thursday at the White House where President Trump reportedly complained about immigration from “shithole countries” like Haiti and the African countries.

The scene played out hurriedly in the morning. [Senator Lindsey] Graham and [Senator Dick] Durbin thought they would be meeting with Trump alone and were surprised to find immigration hard-liners such as Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) at the meeting. White House and Capitol Hill aides say Stephen Miller, the president’s top immigration official, was concerned there could be a deal proposed that was too liberal and made sure conservative lawmakers were present.

For what it’s worth, Trump has denied using the term “shithole.” But Senator Durbin affirmed the president did just that.

So what has Goodlatte had to say about this? Nothing so far, on his website, his Twitter feed or his Facebook page. Will he back up Trump’s denial or will he tell the truth? (Most likely he’ll do neither explicitly.) And will he finally work up the nerve to utter a critical word about the president?

Goodlatte’s contact information is here.

Stay tuned.

  1. No response. 🦗
    At least Goodlatte was “genius” to not appear with the President at the denial podium.
    Virginia can do better!


  2. Just tried calling Goodlatte to get him to make a definitive statement on whether he heard Trump’s racist profanity yesterday. So far, the GOP members who were present are saying they “don’t recall.” Seems like it would be a pretty hard statement to forget. Anyway, NOT ONE of Goodlatte’s five office numbers is being answered or taking messages! They all say their box is full or they are not currently accepting calls. What is he afraid of? Being forced to take a principled stand and tell the truth about what he heard in that meeting?

    This just confirms for me what I already suspected about Goodlatte, that he is racist, anti immigration (especially of brown people) and a spineless coward. Anyone who stood and listened to this talk by the Idiot In Chief and did not speak up against it is truly despicable. I have tried to respectfully disagree with Goodlatte but after this experience which I understand was a sneak attack orchestrated by another sheet wearing White House employee, I no longer have any respect for the man. I hope he will soon crawl back under that rock he crawled out from. It cannot be too soon.
