Soooo, ummm . . . President Trump just described Frederick Douglass at a Black History Month Event as follows:
“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice.”
Many observers were quick to point out that it seemed Trump was so un-informed about Douglass that he seemed to be referring to Douglass in the present tense. How can this be? A simple Google search would clearly show that Douglass died in 1895??
In response, someone created a Twitter Account for the famed ex-slave-turned-abolitionist, author, & editor, just to troll Donald Trump and the commentary is hilarious and truly parallels how being this out of touch now a days is just shameful.
@realFrederickDouglass: My autobiography, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, is #1 best-seller on Amazon. 4x better sales than Art of the Deal! P.S. I am dead!
@realFrederickDouglass: Hope you like everything I did for women’s suffrage! Even the losers, haters, and flat-chested “fives.” Enjoy!
@realFrederickDouglass: Appreciate @realDonaldTrump congrats on AMAZING job I did to secretly educate myself and other slaves while still living under slavery in Maryland. My work is finally being recognized!
@realFrederickDouglass: @realDonaldTrump, your FAKE NATIONAL SECURITY immigrant BAN goes against everything I stood for (when I was alive 122 yrs ago). A horrible mess!
@realFrederickDouglass: My abolitionist paper, The North Star, has much better coverage of me than the failing New York Times has of @realDonaldTrump!
@realFrederickDouglass: @realDonaldTrump pretended to know who I was when he obviously has no fucking idea. VERY DISHONEST!
@realFrederickDouglass: I will be asking for an investigation into the MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD that led to black ppl and women not voting for entire first half of U.S. history!
@realFrederickDouglass: My keynote speech at Emancipation Memorial was highest rated speech with biggest crowd ever! DISHONEST CNN chose not to cover it. TERRIBLE!
@realFrederickDouglass: Only thing I have in common with @realDonaldTrump is that we both had a bankruptcy and failed business! (Freedman’s Savings Bank and New Era newspaper). SAD!
@realFrederickDouglass: My name is in your mouth yet you got elected by KKK whose rise I actively fought in 1868. Excuse me while I give you the side eye. DISASTER!
