There was a part about education and how kids are "deprived of all knowledge."

Even a moron would agree that if a kid went to public school through 12th grade, the kid had to learn something.

The person who seems to be "deprived of all knowledge" is President* Trump - he seems not to know what he's talking about - or how to run a country of 310m people.

Hmm , rolleyes

President* Trump, as it turns out, lied to CNN about writing his Inaugural Speech. As reported by The Wall Street Journal, advisers Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon were responsible for much of the speech:

Quote:
Much of the speech was written by Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon, two of Mr. Trump’s top advisers, a White House official said.

“I don’t think we’ve had a speech like that since Andrew Jackson came to the White House,” said Mr. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. “It’s got a deep, deep root of patriotism.”

So apparently, we are to look at Andrew Jackson, to figure out what Trump is all about.

So the National Guard is going to round up all the illegals and march them barefoot in the snow to Oklahoma?

That, and Trump is a "Populist President."

Jackson claimed to be a populist, too. Founder of the Democratic Party, military leader at The Battle of New Orleans, but he also owned lots of slaves. And every time I look at a 20 dollar bill, I think of The Trail of Tears.

Funny how history remembers people. Trump should take note: How many people do you want lining up to piss on your grave?

I'm feeling more optimistic, today. It's been 48 hours and we aren't engaged in an international nuclear conflagration! The press excoriated Spicer and Conway for flat out lying. NYT: "False Claims" NBC: "Falsehoods" and CNN even used the word "Lie"; so did the Washington Post: "Whether you like Trump or not, it's demonstrably true that he says things that are easily proved false, over and over again. The question the media has regularly confronted is not whether Trump's facts are correct but whether to say he's deliberately lying or not."

He could be pissing them off enough now for the gloves to come off. What's to lose?
