The core reason why the Left is mad about Trump's "shithole" comment is not because of the word itself. Let's say hypothetically, Trump used that word in the following way: "Haiti, El Salvador, and the other countries are shitholes, and so we should open our borders to their people so they can make a better life here in the U.S." Would the Left be appalled and angry? No. They are angry because of Trump's philosophy on immigration: that the United States can and should selectively determine who gets to come here and that it should be selfish by choosing those who are educated, highly skilled, and most likely to assimilate.
