On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks responded to President Trump’s reported “sh*thole” comment by stating the president lacks “normal human compassion or curiosity” and that the comment fits into a “pattern” of “harsh judgment of — against black and brown people.”
There’s been a consistency, a pattern of harsh judgment of — against black and brown people.
And so a normal, admirable human being is curious about the world, and sort of interested in different cultures.
El Salvador, Haiti, Nigeria, they’re interesting, has compassion for people from around the world.
And so, to not have any of that normal human compassion or curiosity go through the guy’s head is part of the deeper character flaw here that we have apparently learned to tolerate.”
