President Trump Praises Robert E. Lee at Ohio Rally: At his recent Lebanon, Ohio campaign rally, President Donald Trump raised eyebrows after he praised Confederate icon Robert E. Lee, claiming Abraham Lincoln even developed a phobia, because he couldn’t beat Lee.
Gee, I can hardly wait to see who get praised at future rallies - you folks probably don’t know it, but John Wilkes Booth was a really great actor! Or how about Hitler was a really terrific artist? Or perhaps he could point out what a fantastic singer/song writer that Charles Manson was? The possibilities seem endless.
Anyway, it’s a kind of a shame that none of Trump’s staff - which is comprised of “all the best people” - never got around to telling our stable genius of a President that Ohio fought for the Union - not the Confederacy. You see, those of us who sided with the Union in that conflict - we tend to prefer generals who didn’t surrender.
