Try not to weep as you read Trump's "I Have A Dream " speech

by digby

Trump kicked off Black History Month this morning with this inspiring and memorable tribute.
Well the election it came out really well. Next time we'll triple the number of quadruple it. We want to get over 51, right. At least 51.

Well this is black history month so this is our little breakfast, our little get-together. And just a few notes. During this month we honor the tremendous history of the African Americans throughout out country. Throughout the world, if you really think about it, right And their story is one of unimaginable sacrifice, hard work, and faith in America. I've gotten a real glimpse during the campaign. I'd go around with Ben to a lot of places I wasn't so familiar with. They're incredible people and I want to thank Ben Carson who's going to be heading up HUD, and it's a job that's no only housing, it's mind and spirit, right? And you understand that. Nobody's going to be better than Ben.

Last month we celebrated the life of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr whose incredible example is unique in American history. You read all about Dr Martin Luther King a week ago when somebody said I took the statue out of my office and it turned out that was fake news. The statue is cherished, it's one of the favorite things and we have some good ones. We have Lincoln, we have Jefferson and we have Dr. Martin Luther King. And we have other. But they said the statue, the bust, of Dr Martin Luther King was taken out of the office and it was never even touched. So I think that was a disgrace. But that's the way the press is. It's very unfortunate.

I'm very proud that we have a museum, National Mall, where people can learn about Reverend King, so many other things, Frederick Doug, Douglass, is an example of somebody who's done an amazing job that is being recognized more and more I notice. Harriet Tubman, Rosa parks and millions more black Americans who made America what it is today.I'm proud to honor this heritage and will be honoring it more and more.

Folks at the table in almost all cases have been great friends and supporters. And Darrell, I met Darrell when he was defending me on television. And the people that we on the other side of the argument didn't have a chance, right? And Paris has done an amazing job in a very hostile CNN community. He's all by himself, seven people and Paris. I'll take Paris over the seven. But I don't watch CNN so I don't get to see you as much. I don't like watching fake news. But Fox has treated me very nice, wherever Fox is, thank you.

We're going to need better schools, and we need 'em soon, We need more jobs, we need better wages, a lot better wages. We're going to work very hard on the inner city. Ben's going to be doing that, big league, that's one of his big things that we're going to be looking at. We need safer communities and we're going to do that with more law enforcement. We're going to make it safe. We're going to make it much better than it is right now. Right now it's terrible.

I saw you talking about it the other night, Paris, on something else that was really --- you did a fantastic job the other night on a a very unrelated show. I'm ready to do my part and I will this, we're going to work togethr. This is a great group and group that's been so special to me, you really helped me a lot. If you remember I wasn't going to do well with the African-American community and after they heard me speaking and talking about the inner city and lots of other things, we ended up getting, I won't go into details, but we ended up getting substantially more than other candidates who had run in the past years. And we're going to take that to new levels. I want to thanks my television star over here --- Omarosa's actually a very nice person. Nobody knows that. I don't want to destroy her reputation. She is a very good person and she's been helpful right from the beginning with the campaign and I appreciate it, I really do. Very special. So I want to thanks everybody for being here.

It makes you proud to be an American doesn't it? Where else could a man with mind of an eight year old become president?

To be honest, that isn't even funny. There's something wrong with this man and the people he has around him are no better. It's getting scarier by the day.
