Any Republicans Want To Speak Out On This One? Anybody? Anybody?


By Miss Kubelik

We cats never thought we'd fall madly in love with Vicente Fox, the former President of Mexico. But then we never thought we'd see the word "sh*thole" on the front page of The Washington Post, either. (Without the asterisks, by the way.)

Ever since we did, though, we've been trying to figure out what we can possibly say about this latest and most repulsive Trumpf outrage. But fear not — President Fox has said it for us.

"Donald Trump," Fox tweeted, "your mouth is the foulest sh*thole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not? America’s greatness is built on diversity — or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?"

We cats have one hope: that this appalling Trumpf interregnum will spur Americans to look at themselves, decide that Trump does not and never can represent them, and move toward an American version of truth and reconciliation on racism. South Africa — you know, one of those "sh*thole" countries — can show us how. We cats HISS.

P.S. Our state's attorney general also had a wonderful response to Trump (if more measured than Fox's): "I want to speak directly to all the immigrants who are taking in tonight’s news," tweeted Eric Schneiderman. "We value you, we stand with you and we have your backs. Generations of people from all over the world have come to New York and made our country better." We cats PURR.
