Donald Trump makes very brief visit to MLK memorial to mark Martin Luther King Day.

It should be noted that Trump had no official events scheduled for today.

President Donald Trump made a brief, unannounced visit to the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial on the National Mall in recognition of the holiday honoring the civil rights icon.

Trump laid a wreath Monday morning at the foot of the memorial alongside Vice President Mike Pence before quickly returning to his motorcade.

“It’s a great day. A beautiful day. Thank you for being here. Appreciate it,” Trump told reporters as he stood before the large statue of King.

The President’s visit to the memorial site — which is overseen by the National Park Service — came on the 31st day of the government shutdown, which has left the National Park Service unfunded.

I imagine if you had been there you would have heard Trump muttering “Well that should keep them from calling me a racist for one more day.”

Except no it will not. 

Running up and tossing a wreath at a memorial and having a staffer send out a tweet is not the same as taking the time to honor a man who sacrificed his very life so that others can live in dignity and equality in this country. 

It also does nothing to erase the fact that his VP actually had the temerity to compare his boss to MLK just yesterday.

Yeah, he is going to need at least a dozen more wreaths. 

Here let our last great President show you how this is done.

Yeah, like that.

    Reports have him being at the memorial for 3 minutes from exiting the limo to getting back in. Total round trip from the WH and back took from 11:06 am to 11:22 am

    Surprised he didn’t throw it from the presidential limo, hoping he aimed right, and kept going. Except the windows don’t roll down. He is such a pig. Assholes live forever.

    STFU, Pence, you proved more than enough that you don’t give a shit about democracy.

      Pence was rebuked for his Trump-aggrandizing comments by both Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III.

      Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was opposed to walls and to any other means of dividing people and alienating them from one another, and subjecting them to an arbitrary hierarchy of worthiness, as witnessed by his stated views on the Berlin wall and by his whole body of work.

      Mike Pence was raised Catholic but he abandoned the church, perhaps because he found their social justice agenda, as spelled out in the Catechism, not to his liking. In a nutshell, Jesus said we must look after the needy, the sick, the outcast, the elderly, the imprisoned–above all others.

      Pence converted to an ungenerous, and patently bigoted, evangelical faith. Non-denominational means they can make up their own rules without regard to anything but their own whims. Like the school in which Karen Pence teaches art to a narrowly defined few. Keep in mind that Jesus said nothing about homosexuality, as far as we know. (Leviticus listed hundreds of commandments intended for the Levite priesthood, and the Apostle Paul, who helped spread but does not define Christianity, was a driven and tortured convert.) As a Governor, Pence drove legislation which harmed lower income people, denying them benefits such as child care subsidies, rental assistance, job assistance, free breakfasts and lunches for needy children, and so on. This is the absolute opposite of what Jesus preached.

      I saw a headline today stating that if Trump is impeached, Pence will be also. Imminently sensible, and it can’t happen soon enough.

      “The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday let President Donald Trump enforce his policy barring certain transgender people from joining or staying in the military as the justices put on hold lower court rulings blocking the plan on constitutional grounds.

      The conservative-majority granted the Trump administration’s request to lift injunctions issued by federal judges against the policy while a legal challenge continues in lower courts. Liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor said they would have kept the injunctions in place blocking the policy. The justices refused the administration’s request for them to decide the merits of the legal fight even before a California-based federal appeals court already considering the matter is given a chance to rule.”

    Dr kings dream that we all live as brothers and sisters almost came true until putin divided us with his covert propoganda. Until americans all realize we have been played by a con man and his handler we are not going to heal.

    “House Democrats know who they are dealing with.

    The same guy who showed up at the MLK memorial with his stooge VP to drop off a wreath and stay for two minutes isn’t going to cut a responsible deal on immigration.”

    “What the hell do you have to lose?” Trump asked black voters, who for the most part couldn’t be found in that night’s crowd. “Give me a chance. I’ll straighten it out. I’ll straighten it out. What do you have to lose?”

    This is a big fucking deal!

    Or…Is former Palin reality tv pimp involved with the tRUMP scandal?

    https://www.rawstory.com/2019/01/trumps-apprentice-producer-attempted-set-meeting-kremlin-linked-banker-president-election-report/

    “ccording to a report from ABC News, a U.S. banker with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin enlisted Donald Trump’s “Apprentice” producer as a go-between to set up a meeting with Trump after the reality show host became president.

    Sources told ABC that congressional investigators are looking at Robert Foresman, Deputy Chairman of UBS Investment Bank who once headed a $3 billion dollar investment fund while he lived in Moscow and hobnobbed with Putin. Foresmen reportedly reached out to “Apprentice” producer Mark Burnett, who in turn approached aides of Trump to see if the president would meet with the banker after the election.”
