Trump’s Ineptness at Knowledgeable Narrative Is Not Presidential

The Atlantic’s David Graham points out Trump’s ineptness at public speaking and providing a knowledgeable narrative, even at something as routine as remarks on Black History.

Here’s Graham’s take on Trump’s Black History Month narrative.

“Marking Black History Month, the president made some strange observations about Douglass and Martin Luther King, but mostly talked about himself.

“Trump continues to indicate he holds a view of black Americans that is instrumental, as he showed on Wednesday at his Black History Month event. “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 get into details, but we ended up getting substantially more than other candidates who have run in the past years,” he said, somewhat misleadingly. “And now we’re going to take that to new levels.” February might be Black History Month, but every month is Trump History Month.”
