Conan O’Brien Gives Haitians Opportunity to Roast Trump Following ‘Sh*thole’ Remarks
In the wake of President Donald Trump’s inflammatory “shithole countries” remarks about Haiti and African nations, Conan O’Brien announced he was traveling to Haiti to film an episode of his TBS program. The special, ‘Conan Without Borders,’ is scheduled to air on Saturday.
In a preview clip, O’Brien invited Haitians to roast POTUS in response to the president insulting their country, stating it was “only fair to give Haitians a chance to return the favor.” And the residents of the Caribbean nation came through with some prime smack talk.
“Mr. Trump, please come visit Haiti. Because every time you leave your country, you make America great again,” one man said.
Another man took a shot at the president’s golfing habit, telling Trump that Haiti has beautiful gold courses for POTUS to “come cheat on.”
One woman said that she wanted to send a “message of love” to Trump. That message? “Oprah, we love you!”
Following reports that Trump slammed immigrants from Haiti during an immigration meeting by describing them as “people from shithole countries” while openly wanting more immigrants from nations like Norway, the president and some GOP lawmakers who attended that meeting have pushed back. Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (D-GA) have claimed that Trump’s comments were misrepresented and Trump has told reporters he is the “least racist person” they’ve ever interviewed.
