We’ve seen plenty of takes on President Trump’s alleged reference to “shithole countries” — poor Anderson Cooper was almost in tears — but there’s something about this take from The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi that really captures the “Won’t someone think of the children!” vibe.
One bit of collateral damage from the president’s choice of adjectives today: “Shithole” will be all over America’s schoolyards tomorrow. A close personal spouse of mine will be on the frontlines, fighting the brush fires.

That, literally, was the last thing on our minds. If Trump hadn’t opened his big mouth, the girls on the playground probably would have been talking about the day’s other news, like whether a pink pussyhat is appropriate considering it doesn’t properly represent women of color and transwomen.
Pro tip: it already was

I've got news for you, Paul. I coached a first-grade YMCA baseball team and was hoping they would tone it down to only say "shithole". Yeah, the brush fires will be epic. LOL. https://t.co/SkrHMVKpkq

LOLOLOLOL. You can’t be serious.
When was the last time you were in a school yard?
8th graders are having kids.

And no one cared when Bill Clinton’s behavior had 10 year olds asking what a blow job was.

Totally unlike when kids were asking what “teabagging” is. https://t.co/P6jS8Ps55z

Schoolyards? Brush fires? Does your friend live in Mayberry?

I'm so glad to see liberals standing up for wholesomness like watching our language, Slutwalks, Nude protests, pussyhats, I hope the same children who currently discuss analsex pride aren't talking about chithole nations tomorrow.

If they read Teen Vogue, they’ve already seen a guide to anal sex, so that problem is solved.
Left: Kids are mature enough to pick their own gender.
Also Left: Kids are too innocent to hear the word shithole. https://t.co/4f71Ybs6a3

If the school is in a place run by democrats for decades, it is a shithole & they know it. https://t.co/K9HxskJwGn

Yeah, no one has ever cussed in a schoolyard in the history of schoolyards. Tell your close personal spouse to stay strong while you take a midol & fret in her bathrobe 😂🤣
