    Not seeing the problem you're pointing out. Other than it's a superfluous addition and could be removed for a better happier sentence. But that's more proofreading than a post on this forum deserves.

    Of course there are shithole countries. Many of them have been shitholes since long before colonialism, too. I mean that's hardly a novel realization. There's a reason why they are migration origins, and not migration destinations. I mean it's part of basic diplomatic decency to not use that kind of language, of course. But diplomacy is not what he ran on. A lot has been said about his lack of intellect, and his twitter Tourettes, and his rampant vanity, but I really believe that the one distinguishing feature of this president is that literally nothing is beneath him.

    I'm sorry, is there anyone agrees that even IF he thinks some of those country's are shit holes he can name them in a reunion?

    It's mind Fucking the intelectual gymnastics of some Americans (some in this forum) that think that their representative can say that ...

    I.e. Means that what follows, that exact specific thing and no other is right. It's used to restate the idea rather than giving an example.

    E.g. Means that what follows is one of perhaps more than one correct example. It's used to give an example.

    In the quoted sentence e.g. is appropriate but not i.e.


    Would you like to know more?

    Nah, I think it's real. Better use them than risking loosing them, amirite? Winter is getting chilly over here and I am going to a family thing tomorrow which I really, really don't want to partake in. Now is the perfect time to turn it up a few thousand degrees and bathe in the warmth of nuclear hellfire.

    Nuclear winter is easier than saying "sorry, can't make it"?

    A lot of people would be disappointed I suppose. With nuclear winter they would still be disappointed, but I would be in the clear and that is the important thing
