Question of the Day: Does Trump Think Frederick Douglass is Still Alive?

Trump, Marking Black History Month, pledges to reduce violence in cities and improve schools

Also, because Trump can't stop being an asshat, of course he used this opportunity, during African-American time, to bash CNN and other "fake news" outlets that write stories he doesn't like because he is a big-ass baby.

Now, let's take a look at some of the quotes...

The Black History Month committee, a group within the Black Scholars Association, will sponsor major events, as well as partner with other minority organizations' events during the month of February. Hi, Lynn, how are you? And just a few notes.

"You're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed - what the hell do you have to lose?" And uh, it was never even touched.

"Last month, we celebrated the life of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose incredible example is unique in American history", Trump said.

In particular, Trump praised the National Museum of African American History and Culture, but when he did, he seemed to suggest that Frederick Douglass, a 19th-century African-American abolitionist who died in 1895, was still alive. Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and millions more black Americans who made Americans what it is today.

Trump singled out CNN, which he said he doesn't watch.

Have I turned into Bill Murray from Groundhog Day? . But Fox has treated me very nice. "Wherever Fox is, thank you", stated the President of the United States. We need more jobs, we need better wages, a lot better wages. We have Steve Harvey and Ben Carson so we're gonna take care of our inner city people.
