Corey Booker rebukes DHS head over Trump's shit hole remarkHomeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen's statement to Congress that she couldn't remember whether President Trump referred to some nations as "sh*thole countries" enraged New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker.

"Your silence and your amnesia is complicity," Booker told her as she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.

Senators who asked Nielsen about the allegation that the president used the profane phrase in an immigration meeting last week heard her say she didn't remember or didn't hear him. "I did not hear that word used," Nielsen told senators. "The president used tough language in general, as did other congressmen in the room," she said to another senator.
