Trump just denied his ‘shithole’ comment. In the process, he confirmed the worst.
THE PLUM LINE: President Trump is now denying that he ever described developing nations as “shithole countries.” But he is acknowledging that he did use “tough” language in the context of the debate over whether to take in people from said shitholes, and in so doing, he is only confirming that the mask has now […]

How far will Trump go to avoid Mueller's questions? Here are several scenarios.
