Twitter Hilariously Responds to Trump’s Bizarre Black History Speech

By Joanna McClanahan of Ramblin’ Mama

Surrounded by seemingly the only African Americans he knows, Trump kicked off Black History Month with a bizarre speech in which he rambled about everything from Omarosa’s success to a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. (which had been covered very unfairly by the press, apparently). But the most interesting part of Trump’s speech was when he appeared to hint that Frederick Douglass is still alive:

“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice,” said Trump.

Which seems like pretty strange phrasing considering the fact that Douglass died in 1895. Then, later today, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked to clarify Trump’s comments about Douglass:

“I think he wants to highlight the contributions that he has made,” Spicer responded. “And I think through a lot of the actions and statements that he’s going to make, I think the contributions of Frederick Douglass will become more and more.”

Leaving the world, and all of Twitter, wondering, “Does anyone in this White House even know who Frederick Douglass is? Or anything about black history for that matter?”

Well, Trump may not understand much about black history, but at least he’ll always have Ben Carson and Omarosa.
