Trump: The First Year

Trump’s workout of the Civil War:

Trump during campaign of 1860: “We’re going to get rid of slavery day one, believe me. Listen, I love the blacks. I’ve got a number of them as house servants, they’re unbelievable, the blacks. I’ll use all my powers under Article Twelve.”

Post-election, when asked about abolishing slavery: “That’s something we’re definitely looking into.”

A few days later, when asked if he thought it was a great idea to expand slavery and formally create a slave empire on the continent: “We’re looking into that right now.”

At negotiations to end slavery, Trump demands a law ending the institution and the Southern states paying for everything. The bill he actually signs a week later is an extension of slavery and federal subsidies to slaveowners.

Fuck, I hate Trump so much. I honest to God thought the article quote on the Constitution was an Onion piece. I had to look at it 3 times to be sure it was a real newspaper and not an April Fools reprint.

Also, this thread is on fire with some great rips!

God he was incompetent.

At least republicans learned to stop electing people that got where they are with daddy’s money and influence. Very worthwhile lesson imo.

Good thing the America realised that voting for someone who’s entire career was the result of being a cock holster for their Husband wouldn’t be the best idea.

(Not sure I can say that but hope people will realise a joke)
