As we celebrate Black History Month, one thing is certain: President Donald Trump knows absolutely nothing about Frederick Douglass.
Listening to Trump at the White House Black History Month breakfast last week with African-American “leaders” such as Omarosa Manigault, Pastor Darrell Scott and Dr. Ben Carson, one would have thought the iconic statesman and abolitionist was still alive.
Maybe he is a reality show star… or perhaps Trump is going to give him a job!
“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice,” Trump said in front of cameras.
When translated, that means absolutely nothing, because Trump doesn’t have the first idea who Frederick Douglass is. Just ask the alleged White House staffer who’s leaking inside information on Trump:
To set the record straight, the President had zero clue who Frederick Douglass was. Had to be briefed after.
