President Trump, fresh off announcing his choice for a new U.S. Supreme Court justice, convened a meeting of conservative Black supporters at the White House for a Black History Month listening program, but there seemed to be little talk of history and a lot of talk about him. Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks.
Even White House press secretary Sean Spicer struggled to clarify Douglass-gate when asked at a briefing later on Wednesday.
"American history", he said.
"They said the statue, the bust, of Dr. Martin Luther King was taken out of the office".
"Well I think there was contributions", Spicer said.
Early on Wednesday, in a freaky rant supposedly commemorating Black History Month, President Donald Trump made a curious statement about the 19th-century black abolitionist, activist, and writer Frederick Douglass: He "is an example of somebody who's done an unbelievable job and he's being recognized more and more, I noticed".

"There's been a presence of the black community here since Fort Smith started, and that might not be something that people know", said Caroline Speir, exhibit designer. Some people like Malcolm X, but you put an X in your name and that's bad judgment. At the helm of what Trump called the "big league" project of cleaning up inner cities is former neurosurgeon Ben Carson. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the natural disaster.
Pool reports indicate that Trump valiantly attempted to stick to his talking points, discussing issues affecting inner cites, violence in Chicago ("If they're not gonna solve the problem. then we're gonna solve the problem for 'em", he warned), and the purportedly unsung legacy of Frederick Douglass.
