We know what Tricky Dick Durbin said that Trump called Haiti. Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t. Assume he did. If he did and he was wrong to do so… what exactly would be a better descriptor? If it doesn’t apply to Haiti, is there anywhere on earth where it does?

Port-Au-Prince: A City Of Millions, With No Sewer System

Port-au-Prince is about the size of Chicago. But it doesn’t have a sewer system. It’s one of the largest cities in the world without one. …

The cumulative sewage of 3 million people flows through open ditches. It mixes with ubiquitous piles of garbage. Each night, an all-but-invisible army of workers called bayakou descend into man-sized holes with buckets to remove human waste from septic pits and latrines, then dump it into the canals that cut through the city.

Yikes.

    well, maybe they could have had a septic system, if the clinton foundation hadn’t pocketed all that money…

    Sewer system? Sewer system? We don’t need no stinkin’ sewer system!

    After 8 years of the left calling Americans “teabaggers,” all of a sudden they’re offended by the word “shithole.”

    Big city, no proper sewer? I’m seeing a HUGE entrepreneurial opportunity … if local government or culture doesn’t mess it up.
