We are coming up on the one year anniversary of our American president saying Haitian people have AIDS and that their country is a “shithole.” Remember that? Find our original Grab on the topic here.

Your DGB for this weekend is to team up with Hope for Haiti to support the island republic, which has historically struggled with colonial exploitation and corrupt government. Today, they need help with infrastructure and health care, among other things. Let’s show the Haitian people that the rest of the world cares.

Presidential Censure

Your DGB for this weekend is to encourage Congress to censure Donald Trump.

In this week’s installment of My God, Why Is He Still Allowed to Speak?, Trump again lifted his leg to mark our government with his racism and degradation. In a meeting about DACA, he asked “Why do we want all these people from shithole countries coming here?” and “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.” These comments follow his December statements to The New York Times that Haitians have AIDS and Nigerians live in huts. The leader of the free world is officially less evolved on Haiti than Cher Horowitz of Clueless.

DGB’s advice is to invest in an anti-aging moisturizer for those worry lines you didn’t have before this administration and use Resistbot to contact your representatives and ask them to lobby for a censure of the president. It’s way past time to tell the rest of the world that he isn’t speaking for America.
