Trump Just Bragged About Himself At African-American Museum. Twitter’s Response Is Priceless

This morning President Donald Trump visited the Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture as part of his efforts to recognize Black History Month. However, after giving a few obviously prepared remarks that were suitably respectful Trump went off script and started bragging about himself.

Trump suddenly pointed out Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, a Republican black man, and said, “A friend of mine, a great, great senator from South Carolina. I like the state of South Carolina. I like all those states where I won by double, double, double digits.

Trump could not make it through a short speech and question-answer session without talking about the only success he has had – his presidential win (in which he failed to win the popular vote by almost 3 million votes). So far his presidency has been an undeniable disaster defined by chaos and ineptitude.

We all know Trump cares more about his ego than any topic of substance like the history of Black America, so of course he retreated to talking about election numbers. Maybe in his own twisted way he honored Black History Month by beginning his rambling boast with an acknowledgement of a black senator?

Trump explained that the Museum is “about love.” Is it really about love, or is it about a long hard fight against the brutalities of slavery, Jim Crow, and racism? And somehow, since this museum is “about love,” Trump believes his unconstitutional Muslim ban is justified.

Trump concluded his statements by saying the Museum can’t “be duplicated” because it was created with “love and lots of money. Lots and lots of money. We can’t avoid that.” Trump’s brain is always on money, never not on money, he loves lots and lots of money.

Twitter has roundly criticized Trump for his insensitivity and inability to grasp what the African American History Museum actually stands for:
