Donald Trump Praised Robert E. Lee At Friday Night Ohio Rally — WTF??
WTF is Donald Trump thinking?!
We realize that question never has an easy answer (zing!) but seriously, at a Friday night rally in Ohio, what the f**k was this?!
As you can see in the video (below), Trump took his Ohio rally and turned it into some weird shrine to the Confederate military General Robert E. Lee for… no apparent reason:

WTF is that, Donald???
Twitter exploded reacting to the President’s absolutely moronic comments (below):
Trump embraces Robert E Lee, calling him a great general. Need we ever again debate whether Trump is a racist (not to mention a man of stupefying ignorance and insensitivity)?

Black Congresswoman- Low IQ
Black NFL player- Son of a bitch
Puerto Rican Mayor- Crazy
Black President- Not American
Robert E. Lee- Excellent
Nazis- Fine people

I can't believe we have to keep saying this: there were no good confederates. Not Robert E. Lee, not Stonewall Jackson, not your great-great-grandparents. They were all committing treason to preserve slavery. The end.

Trump is such a 'stable genius' that he goes up to Ohio, a Northern Union State during the Civil War, and praises Robert E. Lee, while calling Ulysses S. Grant a "drunk".
I guess he's pandering to the other "stable geniuses" who live in Ohio and fly Confederate Flags with pride

Robert E. Lee was a traitor and a loser. Just like Donald J. Trump.

Trump praised Robert E. Lee tonight. Last week, he fell in love with Kim Jong Un. He's infatuated with Putin. But women protesting Kavanaugh are a mob.

When you’re starting to lose the racist vote, what better way to gain some it back than to praise Robert E. Lee on national television?
The President is a moron, but that wasn’t historical idiocy. That was a dog whistle.

I wasn’t asked a question about the President. I was asked about my kids’ Halloween costumes! They’re deciding between various animals, pumpkins, princesses, superheroes (Wonder Woman repeat?!) or a rainbow. If you’re asking about the President today, Robert E. Lee was a traitor. https://t.co/Imbk6EjLV0
