Stephanopoulos: ‘Probably a Mistake’ to Not Report ‘Shithole’ – Shouldn’t Censor POTUS or ‘Sugarcoat the Racist Sentiment’

On Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” anchor George Stephanopoulos stated it was probably a mistake to not report the president’s exact words in reportedly referring to  “sh*thole countries” because it isn’t right to censor the president or “sugarcoat” racist sentiments.

Stephanopoulos said, “I have to say, you know, we, as you said, we’re not reporting the word right now. I think that’s probably a mistake. Because I don’t think it’s right to censor the president, or to sugarcoat the racist sentiment revealed by how he used that word in the meeting.”
