Fair is fair right? I mean he is the current president so it's relevant. Here let me start:

Quote:
Does Donald Trump actually know who Frederick Douglass was? The president mentioned the great abolitionist, former slave, and suffrage campaigner during a Black History Month event Wednesday morning, but there’s little to indicate that Trump knows anything about his subject, based on the rambling, vacuous commentary he offered:

“I am very proud now that we have a museum on the National Mall where people can learn about Reverend King, so many other things, Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice. Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and millions more black Americans who made America what it is today. Big impact.” Within moments, he was off-topic, talking about some of his favorite subjects: CNN, himself, and his feud with CNN.

Surely you can do better than that. I mean Biden is a admittedly plagiarized someone's speech, I forget who, and mis-remembered(lied) about his standing in his law class. You need something better than assuming from a passing reference that Trump doesn't know who Frederic Douglas was.

You gotta keep the audience in mind nelmsm. These are the freaks who have been fantasizing about impeachment for years, and still are, simply because they don't like Orange Man. Quality commentary is completely optional.

I for one would love to see come actual quality commentary on Trump; I don't think I ever have. The cacopphony of Reeeeeeee! which has plagued the land since Fall 2016 has reduced the global commons to (a) excessive volumes of inane, poorly founded, nearly incoherent Trump hate; (b) puzzled WAT? in response to a; and a limited amount of (c) poorly founded, nearly incoherent Trump defense.

Ah well, he is a showman most of all, maybe he could care less if anyone actually analyzes, understands or thoughtfully critiques any of his performance modes. End of the day, all he really seems to care about are hitting his "deliverables," and he has frankly done pretty well on that it seems. Strange that he isn't pushing harder on the border thing though . . .

I think Trump will leave the border simmering until it gets closer to election time and then he'll hammer the Democrats over the head with it. You'll see all the horrible things going on along the border and Trump will be pointing out all the Democrats who refused to do anything about it and actually wanted open borders and sanctuary cities/states, even to the point where they vote not to assist children of veterans but vote that assistance to illegals. Could be the game changer come election time.

That hardly seems like a gaffe. Stream of consciousness, yes. :lol:

He didn't say anything insulting or incorrect about Douglas...just not very much.

Yes Melania gave a speech during the election and her speech writer "borrowed" some expressions from Michelle Obama's speechwriter. trump actually made a pretty funny joke about it later.

I was just wondering if you have voted for Adolf Hitler, Josip Jughashvili, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan or similar not to have Hillary 2016? :roll:

Now I am sure you would have. :twisted:

You are insane. :(
