Donald Trump spent approximately as much time tweeting about Curt Schilling’s Hall of Fame snub last night as he did honoring Martin Luther King Jr. today. Well, of course. One is a crazy white dipshit hatemonger and the other is an African-American civil rights icon. Which do you think he prefers?
President Donald Trump on Monday made an unannounced trip to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington. The president did not mention the civil rights icon during the visit, which ended about two minutes after he arrived.
“Good morning, everybody,” Trump told reporters after laying a wreath in front of the monument. “It’s a great day. It’s a beautiful day. And thank you for being here. Appreciate it.”
