Just…Wow.

From the Washington Post:

“I would tell you that Robert E. Lee was an honorable man,” Kelly told Ingraham. “He was a man that gave up his country to fight for his state, which 150 years ago was more important than country. It was always loyalty to state first back in those days.  Now it’s different today. But the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War, and men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had them make their stand.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Didn’t Trump say something similar about “I’m sure there are good people on both sides” when he was talking about the Charlottesville white supremacist march?

And it seems to me, but I may be wrong here, that “the lack of an ability to compromise” was not the biggest problem leading up to the Civil War. Either one believes that “all men are created equal” or one doesn’t. There is no compromise on that, Gen. Kelly.

Felicitations, Malefactors!

From the Washington Post:

Yet when you brag about speaking directly to the American people, you surrender the talking point in which you denounce the media for how it portrays you. In a press gaggle on Wednesday afternoon, Trump declared, “I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am. People don’t understand: I went to an Ivy League college, I was a nice student, I did very well. I’m a very intelligent person. The fact is I think, I really believe, I think the press creates a different image of Donald Trump than the real person.”

Dim-wit in Chief

President Donald Trump accidentally referred to the Virgin Islands’ governor as their President during a speech Friday — even though he is technically their President.

“I will tell you I left Texas and I left Florida and and I left Louisiana and I went to Puerto Rico and I met with the President of the Virgin Islands,” he told the audience of the Values Voter Summit in Washington.
“We are one nation and we all hurt together, we hope together and we heal together,” he said, later adding, “The Virgin Islands and the President of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people, they suffered gravely and we’re be there, we’re going to be there, we have really, it is not even a question of a choice.”
Trump appeared to be referring to Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp, instead of the “President” who is Trump himself. The Virgin Islands is a US territory.

Hypocritical, Just a Little?

So, let me get this straight. According to the Cheeto-in-Chief, we should all show respect to the national anthem. And then there’s this from the Washington Post:

“Fox Sports showed the anthem, sung by Darius Rucker, although it was unclear whether the network would do the same for its 1 p.m. EDT kickoffs. Last week, Sports President Eric Shanks had indicated the network would revert to the usual practice of selling that time to advertisers. The anthem is typically only shown on telecasts on the Thursday night kickoff game and before the Super Bowl.”

So not televising the anthem isn’t disrespectful as long as you’re trying to make a buck from that time slot. Got it.

Melania, Start With Your Hubby

From Politico:

First lady Melania Trump on Wednesday called on the international community to better protect and support children, speaking out against bullying and calling parents and leaders around the world to “come together for the good of our children because through them, our future will be defined.”

That the first lady would select bullying as a cause to throw the weight of her office behind struck some as ironic, given the president’s penchant for lobbing insults and heated rhetoric at his opponents, both online and in stated remarks.
