Historian Blasts Trump Over Confederate Statues In Hilarious Twitter Rant

8 months ago

Donald Trump responded to the events in Charlottesville on Thursday on Twitter, calling the removal of Confederate monuments by several local governments "foolish," and once again comparing Confederate general Robert E Lee to the likes of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

His stance has caused controversy among those who believe that the monuments are glorifying the horrors of slavery and the Confederate generals who fought against the United States to preserve slavery. 

One person who doesn't seem to agree with the president is Twitter user and historian Librarian Shipwreck. They took to Twitter yesterday to highlight the hypocrisy around the argument in a hilarious series of tweets...

People found it pretty hilarious. 

History is cool.
