A Brief History of Potty-Mouthed Presidents

Donald Trump may have used a vulgarity in a meeting, but many of his predecessors also needed their tongues washed with soap

 President Donald Trump may or may not have used a particularly unflattering vulgarity to describe impoverished nations in the Caribbean and Africa — but he’s got nothing on Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, or Barack Obama.

The truth is that vulgar language and conduct have long been associated with presidents — and it has happened and been heard in the Oval Office, the adjoining hallway, and out on the campaign trail.

Lyndon Baines Johnson of Texas may have been America’s most vulgar chief executive, at least in the modern era. Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin was more than diplomatic in telling C-SPAN about “Landslide Lyndon’s” habit of conducting conversations with aides while sitting on the throne.  :snip:

The Folks Who Wear Vagina Hats And Call Us ‘Teabaggers’ Are Offended By Trump’s Vulgarity

 By Curt  27 Comments  Fri, Jan, 12th, 2018

You have no doubt heard about the latest Donald Trump Outrage. It is reported that Trump, during negotiations over the immigration deal, referred to certain African countries and Haiti as “shithole countries.” He then asked, allegedly, “why we need more Haitians” to come here as immigrants.

The White House rather noticeably refused to deny these reports at first. Finally, this morning, Trump issued a vague denial, claiming that he used “tough language” but “this was not the language used.” So it seems apparent that he either said “shithole” or something similar to it. :snip: http://www.floppingaces.net/most-wanted/the-folks-who-wear-vagina-hats-and-call-us-teabaggers-are-offended-by-trumps-vulgarity/
