Only a fool would recommend giving a highly publicized speech in Gettysburg… Pennsylvania, and only a DAMNED fool would boast after it happened. How can we expect that something like common sense, let alone, historical context would be consulted in this absurd election cycle.
Far from Lincoln’s call for unity, sacrifice, and change… the ultimate pretender came to Gettysburg to attack American democracy. Ignoring the example of past Presidents speaking in Lincoln’s shadow, this latest screed summoned the politics of resentment and division. Lincoln always believed in democracy- insisting to stand for reelection in the middle of the Civil War. This current B-List celebrity has no such courage.
