Salma Hayek Just Dismantled Trump S—hole Remarks During Spirit Awards Speech

Actress Salma Hayek jabbed President Trump at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, making reference to the president’s alleged remarks decrying immigration from “shithole countries.”

While presenting nominations for best international film, took a moment to address the president’s controversial comment.

“This award has never gone to a shithole nation, because there are no shithole nations,” the actress said as the crowd erupted in cheers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hayek’s dig at Trump was in reference to comments made by the president during an Oval Office meeting with administration officials and lawmakers in January. In those remarks, Trump demanded to know why the U.S. should admit immigrants from “shithole countries,” like Haiti and African nations, over people from places like Norway.

The comments drew widespread scrutiny and reignited allegations of racist behavior by Trump.

As always, Trump denied ever making such comments, though lawmakers in the room, including Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), have corroborated accounts of the remarks.
