Donald Trump is spending this morning of his vacation lamenting the removal of various monuments to treason in defense of slavery:
Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You…..
…can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish! Also…
.the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!
One thing I’ve been surprised by during this slow motion car crash into a raging dumpster fire of a presidency is the sheer depth of Trump’s stupidity and ignorance. You could tell during Tuesday’s press conference that he thought he had come up with a new and especially powerful argument when he lectured the reporters about the previously unappreciated fact — no doubt just relayed to him by an advisor in the previous day or two — that Washington and Jefferson owned slaves (wait until he finds out that Jefferson liked to rape some of his).
On top of everything else, he’s just really really dumb — and of course he remains blissfully unaware of this.
