Trump Praises ‘People Of Faith’ For ‘Abolition Of Civil Rights’ At National Prayer Breakfast February 7, 2019

Idiot in Chief: Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., President Trump praised “people of faith” for the “abolition of civil rights.”

Speaking at the event Trump said:

Since the founding of our nation, many of our greatest strides, from gaining our independence to abolition of civil rights, to extending the vote for women, have been led by people of faith and started in prayer. When we open our hearts to faith we fill our hearts with love.

Some reports claim that Trump simply made a mistake, that the phrase “abolition of civil rights” was an accident, a gaffe. And maybe it was an accident, or perhaps an awkward but telling Freudian slip revealing Trump’s true feelings. However, two days ago, in a room full of news anchors, Trump said that he makes no gaffes, and that if he says something that people think is a gaffe, it’s really on purpose.

Speaking to reporters before the State Of The Union address earlier this week Trump bashed former Vice President Joe Biden while declaring that he makes no gaffes:

Biden was never very smart. He was a terrible student. His gaffes are unbelievable. When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, it’s on purpose; it’s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, it’s because he’s dumb.

In addition to praising  “people of faith” for the “abolition of civil rights” Trump also praised  Second Lady Karen Pence for teaching at a private Christian school that bans LGBT students and employees.
