Trump’s ‘sh*thole’ comment was apparently ‘sh*thouse’ but people don’t think it’s a word

Shithouse or shithole?

Yes, we’re having this discussion.

As the fallout over Trump’s alleged remark about the U.S. accepting people from “shithole” countries continues, we might be all getting angry about the wrong word.

The word uttered, according to a tweet by Washington Post’s White House reporter Josh Dawsey, apparently might be “shithouse.”

So far Trump has denied using any shit-related word, despite Democrat senator Dick Durbin attesting to the fact he said it. 

While the debate over the exact word Trump used doesn’t dilute the malice of it, it did lead to people wondering if “shithouse” was actually a word.

Of British origin, “shithouse” means an outhouse, and is also a more enjoyable way of saying “shit.” It can be used as a slang word for poor quality, or when used in the idiom “built like a brick shithouse” it means something or someone with a tough physique.

The word was even a punchline in 1993’s Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Maybe Donald’s a fan.

It’s a pretty common expression in Australia.

Regardless, whatever Trump said, it’s a pretty shithouse thing for him to say.
