Is Dick Durbin trustworthy or a political hack the media love?

If Illinois Republicans knew how to fight the information war, the facts about Durbin cited by Jack Hellner in this article would be well-known:

Senator Durbin is saying Trump called third-world countries s-holes.  (The media and Democrats are saying he is racist, but how is it racist to call backward, corrupt countries what they literally are?)  Senator Cotton and Senator Perdue were also in the room and said they didn’t hear those words, but that doesn’t fit the narrative, so the media ignore them.

The goal every day is to destroy Trump and his agenda so the media will have a new story after Durbin.  Some things they don’t want to report on are the economy growing so fast and the tax cuts trickling down fast.

Since Durbin seems to be the main source, shouldn’t we look at his history of truthfulness, caring about racists and how he has treated sexual abusers in the past?

In 2005, Durbin said the following about our soldiers at Gitmo and he later apologized:

If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe [that] this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime – Pol Pot or others – that had no concern for human beings[.] … Sadly, that is not the case.  This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.

Isn’t it worse to compare our soldiers to Nazis than to refer to backward, corrupt countries as s-holes?

Why didn’t Durbin, the media, and other Democrats call Obama a racist when he called the Muslim country Libya a s— show? Why wasn’t there wall-to-wall coverage?

Under Trump, the unemployment rate for blacks and other minorities has dropped to all-time lows. Does that look racist?
