Trump’s crude immigration comment draws ire from celebrities, politicians

The first year of Donald Trump’s presidency has been anything but average, however, his latest controversy has drawn fire and fury from his enemies on Twitter.

On Thursday, Trump disparaged immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to African nations as “shithole countries” during a bipartisan meeting with senators on immigration policy, according to two sources familiar with the situation.

The president has denied using the words, but Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting, confirmed to reporters that Trump used "vile, vulgar" language, including “shithole.”

The alleged comments sent the Twitterverse into an angry tailspin as celebrities and politicians rebuked the remarks and slung their own insults back at the president.

Scroll down to see some of the choice words they had for Trump and to find out who is supporting the president amid the firestorm.
